Sometimes…a contrail from a passenger jet will light right up with color during a good sunrise/sunset. I actually don’t see a lot of jet traffic up here but when I do, I love it when the contrail lights up.
I will delete and block anyone that makes ANY comments about chemtrails as I find them so don’t go there :(. .
This jet is way high and this is a 1200 mm telephoto shot which is about as close as you can get with a handheld lens to a 35000 feet and 10 miles out object moving at 400 mph.
Location: south of the Bliss DInosuar Ranch, Wyoming/Montana borderlands.
