A friend of mine told me about "chem trails" about a year ago. So, I've been watching the sky for unusual stuff. I have seen at least a half-dozen very strange chem trail patterns over eastern MA in the last year. The most recent was yesterday. It appears that the jets are spraying something. It DOES NOT DISSAPPEAR like a vapor trail; It spreads out and turns into a cloud. Well I was at Starbuck having a coffee and brought up the patterns in the sky with several other patrons, and they thought I was absolutely nuts. "I know nuthing".

I hope that was decaf you were getting.... Serously, that is the MOST tinfoil worthy of all the tinfoil hat theorys out there! Contrails behave differently based on varous local atmospheric conditions. A plane flys very fast, so it can enter and exit different conditions fairly frequently. Ergo, sometimes they last, sometimes they don't...

I just wanted independent confirmation that I am nuts. Thanks guys.

It's a secret chemical that dissolves tinfoil.

It's green house gases. Didn't you see the Charlie Sheen movie, "The Arrival"?

What were you doing at Starbucks anyhow? Didn't you know they don't condone CCW? Besides, I wouldn't put it past that Yuppie Haven (that's what they are out here!) to "dose" your coffee.... FFZ

I'm glad I have a super-plutonium-powered- ceramic-coated-herametically-sealed-tinfoil hat. [:D]

Nice one! (not)

It has to do with moisture content of the surrounding air. Also, combustion produces moisture. Contrails would be short lived in a drier atmosphere, and stay around longer if more moisture is present. Prevailing winds will cause them to spread. While in the Air Force, I used to brief tankers and bombers on contrail potential.

It must have been the Vente decaf Iced Americano Latte with skim and whipped cream with a flavor shot.
