Just one older example of mine... how a trivial airplane, flying maybe at 5 ..10 km up or so, without contrails, can appear later on the photo, when sunlight angles and perspective, along with powerfull optical zoom (12x) can stretch the things.
The following picture shows the same plane, and the time marks when the photo was taken, together with some relevant EXIF data (F-number, exposure time):
here another external version, since ATS media portal recompresses too much the file adding some jpeg artifacts): img519.imageshack.us...
While when up from my head, the plane is easy to understand, later, when much far away and low to the horizon, along with sun glare on its body, the shape became much more "anomalous".

Compared to the airplane photos the orb seems way higher than the planes in the first few photos.
My question is, do the stealth bombers have the capabilities of not leaving trails even in bellow freezing temps.?
Can they go further up than regular planes?
If an object with heat generating motors goes beyond our atmosphere will it leave trails?
