Look on the outer edges you can see trails like its moving away from the car.
Seriously, I don't see whatever it is you are implying. I see the usual variation in cloud formation, which just so happens to be a similiar shade as
the exterior ring of the 'object'. I see a smudge on the windscreen directly to the left of the 'object', which is semi-transparent. I think this
because you can see a streak in the cloud, which passes into the 'smudge', but is still visible.
I apologise in advance for the horrible photoshop skills, but I took some screenshots and have added different colour lines to explain what I'm
The green line represents the 'smudge', the yellow line the streak of the cloud, and the blue arcs represent a portion of what I believe is the
exterior of the reflected object. Rough I know, and the screenshots aren't exactly clear, but look at the OP image for a better idea.
Is this what you are referring to as the wake? Do you really thik a massive object in the cloud would leave a squiggly line in the clouds if it was
travelling at high speeds? This would mean making a series of assumptions, which don't seem to fit, to hell with Occam's razor. The mind see's what
it wants to see, I guess.
You could post a picture yourself, if I have gotten your descriptions wrong.

pretty certain 95%, no car speaker manufacturer is ever going to put LED lights woven into the cone it would effect the sound quality im pretty sure
car speaker is out of the question, we should be looking at other car LED displays.
If you think this, then you are clearly unfamiliar with car audio. Have you heard of "co-axial" speakers? These are the most common type of
aftermarket speakers, as they contain a tweeter mounted in the middle of a larger cone, making it compact. Myself, I prefer "component" speakers,
with a completely seperate tweeter, as they have better power handling, and usually incorporate better crossovers for more accurate sound production.
You can also mount the tweeter higher for better sound presentation. I've got a pair of infinity 6.5 inch components, and they rock.
I have found a very similiar speaker design, although it uses two rings of 6 lights as opposed to 8. But it shows a remarkable similiarity. It's not
exactly the same, but shows that a led speaker is a definite possibility. Find it
. You may have to
enlarge the pic, as it's small. It's not very clear, but you can clearly see the two rings of 6 LED's. This particular model is 5.25 inch, and
could fit in a lot of factory locations, possibly with a spacer. This could mean removing any factory grill to allow it to fit (and of course, to show
off those LED's
), giving it a clear view.
I'm not saying the reflection is definitely a speaker, but it is a distinct possibility, along with any of the many aftermarket LED devices.
