After reading that resonse to someone else....am I to now infer that your intent, here...is about patterns
you see in the sky??
You realize, of course, that once you open the floodgates to the "possibility" of "intentional spraying"...well, the term "chemtrails" is a trigger
item that springs up, immediately. Heck, you used the word in your title!!
Notice the sorts of people it attracted, by just using that trigger word?
Intelligent, experienced and educated in the specific fields of expertise needed to understand contrails, and know that "chemtrails" are
imaginary...AND, the fringe "believers" in so-called "chemtrails", who eventually flock to, and pepper these sorts of threads with their post
droppings, then scurry back into the woodwork.
As always, there are a few rational-minded people who are seriously asking, for they may be considered "fence sitters"...it is for THOSE people that
facts, science and logical explanations are presented, in these sorts of threads. Not to mention, the untold numbers who are reading, but not
posting...or not (yet) ATS members....AND, because many of these topics eventually end up being accessed when people 'net search....
Now, your case....and the "angles" of the contrails, as they formed in the sky, from your POV, against the typical rising Sun, and its location in
your car's windshield, as you drive to work in the morning?
First I believe on THAT aspect, you're "tilting at windmills"...a reference from Cervantes' story of "Don Quixote
course....attacking/questioning something that isn't really there...or, IS there, but is misinterpreted as a "threat", or something other than it
is...a normal, benign thing. Like a windmill is not some giant attacking monster, in "Quixote's
" imagination, the contrails aren't "placed"
there, just to line up for your morning drive to work.
To grasp this, would help if you tried to visualize looking DOWN on yourself, in the car, on the highway...like looking down at a map. You can plot
the position ("angle") of the Sun, relative to your position.
Taking away contrails, for the moment...think back to that same highway, and same time each morning (ignore Daylight Savings, if you observe it where
you live...if you're in Arizona, then you don't).
We must also assume that each morning, you are in the EXACT same place long the highway, at the EXACT same time. Every day. OK...now, find some
charts that plot sunrise times, throughout the year, and the relative location where the Sun appears, as it rises above the horizon. In any spot on
planet Earth, (except along the Equator) the "apparent" spot where the Sun rises, each day, changes. ALSO, the time it rises changes. ALL depends on
your latitude. For instance, in the Northern Hemisphere, the Sun appears to move "south" with each day's sunrise as we move from summer, through
fall, to winter...until the Solstice (Dec 21), when the apparent "motion" reverses. This continues, until the next Solstice, June 21, then it cycles
through another iteration.
THEREFORE....a month from now? Those SAME airplanes, that operate every day at (roughly) the same time, and same routes, IF they make contrails on
those days...the "angle" of those trails, with the rising Sun, WILL be different.
Does THAT address your concerns??
Oh, and here.....look at this site, type in your U.S. city, and see the sunrise (and sunset) tables:
