I Saw Something Strange In The Sky Today...

I'm not one for wild theories but after seeing what I'm about to describe I have to wonder what is really going on...

It's sunny and warm in Wisconsin, another beautiful day. With coffee in hand I step outside to gauge whether a storm may be coming or if I am safe in my short sleeves and short pants. As I look to the sky I see an airplane miles above, heading due east, leaving a trail of white 'smoke' in its path.

This trail - can I call it at the very least 'unusual?' Here is what I saw - please judge for yourself:

-The trail followed the plane for what I might estimate to be around 100 feet. It lasted for around 3 or 4 seconds then dissipated.

-It did not remain for minutes or hours as they usually do.

-It did not spread out across the entire sky.

-It did not change colors.

-It did not form into whispy droplets.

-It did not cast shadows on the other trails.

It didn't do any of the things that normal airplane smoke trails do. I'm sorry you have to just take my word for this, I was so shocked at this unusual event that it never occured to me to grab my camera and document it. Now I fear I'll be looking up all the time trying to see 'it' happen again, each day doubting more and more the sanity of my senses...

Have any of you, my dear Daily Paul friends, ever seen one of these weird planes? Did you take a picture? Any confirmation of this strange phenomenon would be a huge load off my mind.

As it happens the sky is now filled with the normal trails of each variety - some 'spreaders', some 'whispy' types, and some of the criss-crossing 'shadow-casting' variety. Through all the haze it is impossible to see if there are any more of these unusual planes leaving their ominous non-trails (my term). But I'll keep looking.

Thanks in advance for any help,

I don't know why but that made me laugh...

i saw something similar, except...

i have video of 3 planes. 2 of them with persistent trails next to 1 that has no persistent trail... all roughly the same altitude, same speed, just staggered across the sky.... why do 3 flights take off and head in the same direction so closely? that should be the first thing asked.. 3 planes, same direction and vicinity... yeah right, when does that happen in "normal traffic"? please..

I use Blue Wave, but don't expect one of THEIR silly taglines.

Having counted 14 planes in 3 hours flying over little old

Green Bay makes one ask 'huh'?

VOR Navigation


Believe it or not, planes can get lost and off course if they don't have a firm method of determining where they are at and sticking to a flight path. The sky is managed like a highway with VOR towers that help planes know where they are. So, planes often fly from tower to tower and change course in the vicinity of a tower. That is why you see them in such patterns and why you can see them change directions in roughly the same area of the sky. Also, planes fly at certain altitudes for certain directions of travel so as to avoid collisions mid-air. Planes flying in the same direction along the same VOR radial will be in the same 2000' altitude range because pilots don't tend to rear-end other planes, especially when they have a navigator and air traffic control personnel watching the skies. If no attention was given to altitude in reference to direction of travel, two planes might collide head-on if they chose the same altitude.


Here's why

Not sure if you are being sarcastic or if you really want to know... it is called flight paths, and even if you can't fathom it, there are many planes taking off following each other, same speed, staggered across the sky... check it out this live map: http://www.flightradar24.com

Have you ever seen a persistent trail that was not way up high? Do you ever see a trail upon take off or when a plane is landing? That would mean the pilots have a switch to turn the vapor trails on and off... so all pilots of commercial airliners are in on it then? Are clouds persistent and dense? Can clouds last all day long? If they do are they not clouds, or are they government chemblobs? Why do the trails come from the engines? If they are releasing chemicals why do they mix it with the fuel, and burn it in the engine, instead of just dropping out a tube in the plane? If the chemicals were in the fuel, there would be chem trails as soon as they start the engines at the airport, so it can't be in the fuel... yet they come from the engines.. so there is another tank hidden in all passenger jets, but no one ever sees these tanks being filled.. how do they fill these tanks, when all you can see is one fuel nozzle being connected to each plane? MAGIC!!!!!

The real question that I want to know, is if this is really a coke bottle, or something else?



I just wanted to use the word "chemblobs". Carry on.

Defend Liberty!

Oh no! "Chemblobs", I had

Oh no! "Chemblobs", I had never even thought of that; thanks for bringing it up.

Goes to show ya, a deteriorating economy on the verge

of collapse can impact corporations that put chemicals into our atmosphere too - inflation, layoffs, cutbacks.
No one is impervious to pain and suffering - the globalists will get theirs one day.

On a side note, I just watched "Molan Labe". Excellent documentary that drilled us about the 2nd Amendment. "A well regulated Militia" should mean Congress supplies weaponry to American citizens and the weapons should be equal to the best weapons available to our Armies.
I've been saying that for years, and if we leave it to govt, they will eventually ban even repeating pea shooters, that is, a citizen would be banned from having more than one pea in his mouth at a time.
I'm buying an automatic weapon on the black market. I want protection.

Humidity & Contrails

Humidity has an effect on how rapidly a contrail can dissipate. So can altitude. For example, in higher humidity, the air is more saturated with water than in lower humidity. This decreases the rate at which water evaporates due to the higher saturation of water molecules already in the air.

Altitude has an effect as well as lower air pressure is present at higher altitudes, leading to a lower temperature for evaporation and boiling of water.

So, an airplane flying at a higher altitude such as a cross-country flight on a dry day will have little to no contrail. A lower flying plane such as a local flight on a humid day will have a contrail that lasts longer in the sky. I think this fits in well with the theory of chemtrails seeding the sky to make upcoming storms more fierce. The reason is because when the storms are coming, the humidity is higher and contrails last longer.

Now, if you are concerned about the sky being poisoned, you don't even need a chemtrail conspiracy to know that such is occurring on a daily basis all over the globe. There are millions of pounds of aviation fuel being burned overhead every day. Not a conspiracy, just a fact as air travel is more commonplace today than it was a half-century ago. The gases given off by burning those fuels are not good and already it is a topic of considerable study and concern.



It does seem to be an observation that should cause concern.

The real question as I see it is your right to freely experiment and examine the facts without some other person saying there is some potential that someone might possibly be harmed someday by your experimental methods. What are the chances of some aircraft hitting your test balloon? Why should their worries stop your attempt for scientific progress.

I say go ahead.

Buy or generate some Hydrogen for a balloon. Buy an arduino and transmitter. Send the equipment to that layer in the atmosphere, retrieve it, analyze the gas and find out if these dastards are really killing you.

If you find the jets actually are poisoning you and you might eventually die someday, grab a few gmo beers and chill out.

If not, focus on more immediate dangers.

I'll take my Liberty, it's not yours to give.

Thanks I've made some stuff already with my 3d printer.

Immediate threat? What could be more immediate than the clouds above my head?

9-11 was a panda job.

Clouds above your head are not a threat

It is the clouds IN your head that are threatening you!

Right now I'm ambivalent on this terraforming issue.

I was inclined to agree (given my 50 year old high school physics) with Laundryhead's debunking videos. However, if global warming (man made or not) is actual, my objection to governmental experimentation is their not explaining the evidence. I'd like to know the reasoning and thoughts behind their actions and most importantly they must have our permission to go ahead.

If it can be legitimately shown the warming unquestionably would result in sufficient release of arctic methane and would result in the death and dislocation of billions of persons I would like a public debate of pros and cons of all possible remedies before the all knowing executive says "damn the torpedoes...".

I can see the difference between the '50s skys when I was young and what we have now. What troubles me about the flavor of threads on this issue is the assumption that the change must be due to the evil government, not saturation of the upper atmosphere by jet injected water vapor and contaminants.

If the government is experimenting with spraying tankers what is the scale and why aren't they asking my permission.

That permission is "what could be more important than the clouds overhead".

I'll take my Liberty, it's not yours to give.

I once heard something strange....

This politician spoke and he did not sound like a greasy, lying, huckster car salesman.

His name was Ron Paul.

You contradicted yourself

-It did not remain for minutes or hours as they usually do.

Contrails can remain for hours... this is normal, it is just water vapor, it can remain, just like clouds remain for hours

-It did not spread out across the entire sky.
Any trails that you have seen spread across the entire sky are just water vapor from contrails... this is not abnormal for jet engines

-It did not change colors.
I have yet to see any pictures of supposed chemtrails changing colors

-It did not form into whispy droplets.
You can see the whispy droplets? What are you 10 feet away from the trail? Do you have the Hubble telescope aimed at it?

-It did not cast shadows on the other trails.
Vapor trails did not cast shadows? It must be made by a vampire!

-It didn't do any of the things that normal airplane smoke trails do.
If the airplaine is leaving a smoke trail, then it is on fire, ha ha!

But I do agree with you, marijuana should be legalized...

I never saw any of these things in videos either.

The color changing and everything else are eyewitness accounts.

Can you see the sky where you live?

wow thanks for all the free lessons in how to be a troll.

You are awesome thanks.

9-11 was a panda job.

Wow thanks for calling names.

You don't seems to care about facts so you try and ridicule... troll troll troll, don't talk about facts... ha ha ha

Thanks Chris you are so awesome... wish I could ignore details too! I want what you are smoking, it must feel great!

Oh here let me throw a cliche at you.. you mad bro?

I didn't call anyone names.

Stop being so paranoid.

I got your joke. FYI. :-)

Calling someone a troll is name calling

You don't even seem to understand English let alone basic weather phenomena..your whole article is a troll article... you just wanted to upset people, and then call them trolls.

Happy now, ha ha ha! For someone that is so sure of himself with chemtrails you sure seem miserable.

The good news is, the more down votes you give for the truth, the more chemtrails exist! Woohoo!

He didn't call you a

He didn't call you a troll. And yes, his article IS a troll article. So what? It's amusing.

You are clearly the one who has a very poor grasp on English.

Sorry but what is a troll article?

I only wish to learn.

9-11 was a panda job.

Your article is a troll article

You only wish to not learn, otherwise, you would do some research!

Hey but you are getting some attention and that is what you are after... enjoying it?

Nice... I see what you did there...

I'm gonna answer it seriously though (as you know I take things too seriously and have a out-dated sense of humor).

The contrail you saw, and described, is a normal contrail.

The "normal", long-lasting "contrails" that spread out and last all day are NOT normal... They are the "chemtrails".

I know you already know this, but this for those who couldn't grasp the satire.

nope this is real.
