(Note: I’ve updated with a higher magnification.)
Whoowho–now she’s writing about chemtrails? No I’m not and I put a question mark because I don’t know what this is and am wondering if someone can tell me.
So, we were near the end of the trip. We’d crossed the mighty Mississippi. Not a cloud in the sky. In Arizona, my mother had been talking to me about chemtrails, which I’ve read of but haven’t paid any attention to them. But the meme was planted and by now I was taking photos of trucks, being without anything to do and not feeling like reading, and when I looked up and saw an assumed contrail in the clear blue sky I snapped a shot just for the hell of it.
It is, upon zooming in, however, not a contrail. And the plane couldn’t be seeding clouds as there were no clouds and it’s far far far too high to be a crop duster. Besides which the effluent is entirely dissociated from the plane by intervening objects. As one can see there is the plane, a red thing below it to the rear and below that to the rear are the twin effluents, one of which appears to be preceded by a dark object. But there is definitely a red object between.
Anyway, I’m just curious what the plane is up to and I’m supposing that there is an easy “Oh, okay” explanation that someone will be able to offer.
Update: It’s been suggested this could be a plane refueling another, so I thought I’d put in a higher magnification to show why I don’t believe it is.
The original digital photo, the one at the top of the post, at 300 dpi an inch, was 2288 by 1712 pixels, or 7.627 by 5.707 inches. I blew it up to 16000 dpi by 11972 dpi at 300 dpi an inch, which was 53.333 inches by 39.907. Then cropped and reduced to 72 dpi for web viewing.
Maybe they’re dragging a purple-pink dino Barney blimp along for a joy ride, though that still doesn’t explain further below and a good bit behind the two staggered contrail thingies, one preceded by it seems a dark object.
Somebody please tell me what it is!
Update 2: Neil (comments below) suggests that high contrast may reveal v-shaped harness. I’ve upped the contrast in order to show more clearly what he may be talking about. It’s hard to say what may be color anomalies but there may be a v-shaped harness.
