PLEASE FORGIVE THE POSSIBLE HUGE FORTHCOMING STUPIDITY.
Contrails are an oddball in my melting pot of conspiracies and so forth. And since I am not too good with the whole physics of them, I need the help
I know I know, I could easily just go on Google. But then what is the point of being a member on this website right?
So, last night, I looked up to the pitch black sky, and saw what appeared to be a contrail from a plane, I instantly knew that in order for it to
appear in night, whatever it was, it must of been more dense than the air to appear (Is that right?)
For some reason, probably due to my lack of knowledge, I thought to myself that they couldn't form during the night. I had the thoughts that the sun
needed to be present in order for them to appear in the form of what most people believe them to be, a contrail. So with that in mind, my questions
for you are:
1) Does the sun need to be present for contrails to appear/form? Or can they appear day and night?
2) If YES, the sun must be present, what did I see? (Bear in mind it was as clear as clear could be in the sky last night. I know there are people on
ATS who live literally a couple miles from me and can confirm this if I post my location)
