Not all "trails" are formed by airplanes.

I'm surprised that the "chemtrail" crowd has forgotten about the phenomena of "ship tracks."

How do these fit into your conspiratoid world?

What's a ship track howard? I don't believe there is such a thing.

When I see a ship and it goes by it doesn't leave a wake that lasts for hundreds of miles.

But they would heat the water up and introduce small amounts of air into the water, right? And since cameras can see infrared a lot better that we can, could it be possible that that camera is picking up some sort of heat reading that is higher than the surrounding water?
If so, then seeing ship tracks is possible.

From wiki :

Ship tracks are clouds that form around the exhaust released by ships into the still ocean air

Aww, least I tried!

So nuclear powered ships would not make such 'tracks'? Hmm, interesting . . .

Because the air over the sea is much stiller than that over land (because of much less temperature variation) the tracks last for much longer and can string out for miles and miles.

People really should read links before shooting their mouths! Do you believe after reading the wikipedia article denythestatusquo?

The big difference between a ship track and a contrail is that one tends to form clouds of water droplets, while the other tends to form clouds of ice crystals.

Niether one is a "chemtrail" in the conspiracy meaning of the term.
