Amazing con trail

Post by beeman » Sun 12 Apr 2015 6:48 pm

I wandered into the garden this morning and looked up and saw this !! Some sort of wind shear?
By the time I'd gone indoors and got the camera out the trail had begun to disperse. From my house the trail continued to squiggle for miles. I sat with the camera at the ready for another hour but saw nothing similar. I wonder what it felt like in the plane?

I've never seen one like that before, must be just at interface between layers or something?

Too early in the morning for the photographer to be drunk. :lol:
I wish I'd gone out 10 minutes earlier

The guys at Metabunk would like to know of any more sightings of this particular event as they are quite rare. Did any of you see it? What about on your webcams? Sunday 12th April between say 10:00 and 12:00 BST. The trail was West to East and should have been visible 25 miles of a line drawn from the Thames estuary to Bristol.
Thanks
Dave
