Not this nonsense again. Watch this video and you'll realise why it looked the way it did.
It's because of scale, and because of energy. The scale and energy of the phenomenon was HUGE, allowing the perturbations we notice in smoke in our lives to be dwarfed by the sheer scale.
The official explanations are fine - they cover everything we saw, they make perfect sense, and they are not flights of fancy (pardon the pun).
This thread, as Phage said, is completely unnecessary. It only serves to make people more ignorant by doubting the perfectly sound science that has been put forward to explain what we saw. Deny ignorance - accept the science.

The video is an example of the arrogance of "science" and the ignorance of its followers. The video is a "simulation" of a "possible" explanation. It is really a sad and embarassing one at that. Can't the scientific community come up with something a bit more plausible?
