During this evening (May 11th), some users of Bio-Bio (note: a country wide radio) sent us via twitter images of a very weird meteorological that was visible for 20 minutes over the skies of Santiago: contrails that made an strange patron, coloured by the evening light in the Metropolitan Region.
for our surprise when we published the images, dozens of people sent us more images (our apologies, we can't publish every of them) telling us that the same contrails were saw in very distant places of our country like Antofagasta and Punta Arenas (note: Anofagasta is in the very north, Punta Arenas is in front of Antartica)
Of course we are not experts to identify whats the exact process who causes this, but thre's nothing to worry about: there's dozens of unusual meteorogical fenomena registered worldwide that describes weirdest patterns on the clouds, some by natural reasons and others by the passing of airplanes
However, one never knows...

To me it looks precisely just what I would expect the contrail from a jet executing a 180 degree turn, would look like.
