Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

Chinchilla News - - NEWS -

THE sky was clear as a bell on Mon­day evening, the sun­set par­tic­u­larly stun­ning, but there was one anom­aly that had some res­i­dents won­der­ing.

A stream of some­thing fly­ing high above was caught on cam­era as it passed across the skies. Some were quick to throw out the­o­ries, but be­fore you pull out the tin foil hats, it doesn’t look like it was ac­tu­ally any­thing out of the or­di­nary.

Ac­cord­ing to a Chin­chilla pi­lot it was prob­a­bly, quite sim­ply, a stream of vapour from a jet pass­ing over­head.

The pi­lot said the vapour trail was fairly com­mon, form­ing when the at­mo­spheric con­di­tions were just right.

The trails are more com­mon in the win­ter and au­tumn months, when the air is cooler.

While some vapour trails can last for some time, even form­ing clouds, oth­ers like the one on Mon­day can dis­si­pate very quickly.

In any case, it seems that’s one mys­tery eas­ily solved.

Are you con­vinced?
