April 26, 2008: Unusual Sky

Quote:
This highly unusual cloud formation was likely formed from the exhaust of a rocket launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in Southern California roughly an hour before this capture

I'd rather not think about the chemicals that may have contributed to this, but it sure are purty.

Ice, most likely.

Very beautiful. I remember seeing similar vistas when I lived in California.



Shawnee123  Friday Apr 25 12:33 PM

Wow. That kind of looks like that milk trick.



sweetwater  Friday Apr 25 01:49 PM

Beautiful. During the day I'd call the rainbow portion a sundog, but I don't think they occur at night.
Wait a minute - what milk truck?



Shawnee123  Friday Apr 25 02:46 PM



Not truck, trick! From here.

No, Sweet really did mean truck - it was a wi-fi connection and unfortunately the truck was in the way. Bye-bye Sweet

Actually, it is like a sun dog. The rocket contrail is so high it picked up the setting sunlight around the curve of the earth. Notice that it looks like it is just after sunset...



sweetwater  Friday Apr 25 03:12 PM

I'm really getting off on the wrong track with the trick truck thing here, aren't I? Do'h!



Shawnee123  Friday Apr 25 03:15 PM

Don't wind up in the trunk on your truck trek to track tick tricks.

They do occur at night, and they're called paraselenes, including moondogs.

Not only am I unable to say that three times fast, I cannot read it one time slow!
