  • Trail of smoke in Perth sky this morning?

    Anyone else spot the long trail of smoke in the sky this morning around 730ish?

    Looked like it started from the ground and went almost directly up.

    Wasn't smoke from a fire as it looked very simular to the smoke trail a rocket leave behind.

    Or is the lack of sleep causing hallucinations??

      the trail was far too tidy to be smoke from a fire.

          Something to do with Comet ISON perhaps?

            I did see that, sort of running in a NW direction?

            I was pretty sure it was a planes vapour trail though...

                We saw exactly the same thing yesterday afternoon at cricket training, about 6.30pm. Looked like a rocket trail heading straight up, but then leveled out. Took off from north of Perth somewhere (Pearce maybe???), and then headed due south. Was too high to make out detail other than it looked white but damn it was travelling quick.

                  IMO Vapour trail blown by the wind so it appeared to go straight up.

                    Where did you see it from? I saw that one from the Beaumaris Sports Club yesterday afternoon. Pearce was my thoughts as well.

                        Definitely a contrail. Saw the plane flying in a NW direction as I was heading East on Clayton St in Midland at 7am. Wind must have scattered it by 7.30.

                            it was a contrail. i saw it (and the plane) at around 7 this morning. it created a massive arc from my point of view. i took a somewhat-cool photo of it. by 7:30 it had started to diffuse and looked like a long, diagonal cloud.

                              I was at Light st reserve, Dianella.

                              I would normally have said a planes vapour trail as well, except the thing that was odd was the intial trail looked vertical, and very very dense, and remained in place for a good ten minutes even after whatever it was had passed south of us and the trail overhead dissappeared.
