There are many strange things but the strangest I have seen is in this
Must have been on August 19, 2013 as i am over 100 km southwest of the location this was taken and I clearly saw this in the western sky. How could I
see it and someone who is 100 km away see the same thing? Whatever it was just hung there perpendicular with a flame coming out? To this day I
wonder what it was.
It could have been a jet contrail lit up by the sun (possibly closer to sunset, hence the orangish color).
It may have looked from your vantage point to be "perpendicular" as if it was headed downward to the ground, but it may have just been a jet flying
directly away from you and over the horizon. A plane flying over the horizon on a path directly away from an observer will look to be headed
"downward" -- but it would really just be heading toward the horizon...
...such as in this image (although this contrails are not quite heading directly
away, but you can see that the contrails would look
perpendicular to the ground if they were):
