No idea what it could be other than a nighttime chemtrail illuminated by the moon LOL


How about a contrail illuminated by the moon..



What makes it a chemtrail?

I'm in the midlands in the UK so not quite as far North a you but I did go out and have a look at the night sky after midnight last night before hitting the sack as the solar wind was running close to 700 km/s as Earth is/was travelling through the wake of a recent CME.

There was a massive full moon and very wispy high cloud illuminated by the full moon (though the brighter stars were still visible through it). The cloud looked high altitude and wind driven so you may have just seen this lit up by the full moon as it was blown about and dispersed.

Didn't get any aurora on my camera, too far south and a full moon doesn't help. Even tried an exposure of a minute and only captured the wispy cloud and stars mentioned above.

I noticed a couple of these at the end of last month over Saltburn on the other side of the country, looked as though they were following/traveling with something leaving regular con trails, this was in daylight and it almost looked like a shadow contrail.

It was sort of like that except huge in size

i40.tinypic.com...

there's a quick photoshop job. What was strange apart from its size was that rather than dispersing and blending into the sky as you (well me anyway) might expect, it slowly tightened up and become slimmer in size, holding its shape

Might have just been a contrail at the right distance and direction mixed with the right lighting and background (full and yellow moon against a cloudy sky), might well have been a rare cloud formation, it grabbed my attention either way

The photoshop job doesn't really do it justice

It was the other way around though, black/dark on a lighter sky background, rather than a light trail on a darker background. Hence why it sort of stumped me because the trails left by planes are usually white or grey even at night

And I'm really not all that bothered about "harassment" from imbeciles. I'm not claiming to have seen an alien running across my lawn, or to have had big foot round for dinner, what I'm reporting is really rather dull and unadventurous. I made the post, and drawing, in the hopes that some scientifically minded members might be kind enough to give a possible explanation for the phenomena I'm describing. It seems odd for plane or cloud to leave such a harsh and large trail across the night sky, but then I don't study clouds, or planes.

..so any scientifically minded "imbecile" who responded would have spent more time typing than you did drawing..

if you took that kind of sketch to the police, "this is the man who robbed me, officer!" would you expect to be treated any different?

just draw a better diagram if you want some serious feedback.. ask your neighbors today if any of them saw it and photographed it..


I'm really not understanding your hostility. Being robbed and going to the police is serious business, a slightly unusual trail in the sky and a conspiracy forum isn't, no matter how high an opinion you might have of yourself. I saw something unusual across the sky, I made a thread with a (crude) representation and explanation, curious if anybody might have an idea based on my description. That's it. Yet for one reason or another you're treating me as if I'm on here trying to dupe people and waste time with wild and fanciful stories.

It's a laughable drawing understood, but so what? I don't need to create an uber complex photoshop manipulation or photographic images to describe a huge black trail extending across the night sky. You can read, you have an imagination, no? A few members - and they're obviously smarter than yourself - have effectively understood what I've described.

What gets me is that if I didn't spend 2 minutes in MS Paint, if I instead posted only written account, I'd have received much less flak.

Get over yourself.

It's the shadow from the contrail. If you look at contrails during the day, and then look over in the direction the sun is shining down, you'll see a black "anti-contrail" that matches exactly to the contrail. It's just a shadow of the contrail. If there is a smooth cirrostratus layer under the contrail (that you can't always see because it's so thin), the contrail will leave a shadow across the sky.
