Jena tweeted about this weird line in the skies over Washington on Tuesday November 27, 2012. “I took these strange marks after I heard a loud boom. Looks like missiles to me! Thoughts? Anyone else see it.?
Yes, Jena, someone else did see it.
And I even noticed the line in the sky while I was outside putting up Christmas lights on Tuesday. Here’s the explanation:
Jets flying above the main cloud layer, were leaving behind Contrails or ice clouds. You know, the ones you see on a clear day against a blue sky? Because those skinny and long ice-clouds were above the main cloud layer, they actually cast a shadow on the clouds below. So this is a case of shadow that one cloud is casting on another one.
And Jena, you’re right. It did look like a missile launch. But instead, it was from jets that were flying high in our skies above the main layer of clouds.
Did you notice something like this on Tuesday?
