Northeast Ohio Contrails (vanity)

Posted on 03/08/2007 12:22:32 PM PST by agrace

I hesitate to start a thread like this...

My husband called me a little while ago to say that the sports guy on AM 1100 in Cleveland was breaking into Rush briefly to say that there are a ridiculous number of contrails over NE OH. My husband, who was driving at the time, said sure enough, dozens of them. Looking outside right now I can probably count at least 20 criss-crossing the sky. So anyway, the sports guy (Mike Trivisonno), who is doing his own show now, is spouting off about how "SOMETHING" must be going on, even though "officials" have told him that it's just prime atmospheric conditions that allow the contrails to be seen so well.

He's not buying it, is stirring up the listening audience, so how about some educated freepers tell me that in fact it is the atmosphere. I personally have never seen anything like it, and I don't own a single tin foil hat, I swear.

So when you're all out of the shower, any comments on this hugh and series event would be appreciated, thanks.

More than usual anyway.

Something is going on. The weather. You have very stable upper air and conditions just perfect for making contrails. Thus more contrails made, which don't dissipate.

That is likely the extent of it.

Most of the San Francisco to NE US flights pass over there, of course there are lots of contrails.

I don't know. But I do know, if "something" were going on, it would be wise to shut up about it for for a while.

It's the atmosphere- at any given time there are more than enough aircraft over your head in Ohio to fill the sky with contrails were atmospheric conditions perfect. Such perfect conditions don't happen every day so you're just not used to it. On most days- most are imperfect days for contrail formation- you just don't notice the planes passing overhead.

Is Art Bell still alive and on the same topic he was on 8 yrs ago or something?

Contrails form in moist, cold air. The jet engines add to the moisture and it condensates into the contrail.

When the conditions are right, you get lots of them and they stick around a long time if the air "up there" (20k feet or more) isn't moving fast.

You aren't getting "sprayed" with "chemtrails".

Thanks to you both. My intention for asking the question wasn't to get people riled up but to provide an educated explanation to the radio dude who IS trying to get people riled up. You should hear this guy - he's got people monitoring short wave radio for military airbase transmissions and other sensationalist stuff.

In reality, the fact that the contrails are criss-crossing in every direction makes perfect sense that it would just be atmospheric...because that's what we would see. Thanks for the confirmation.

I've seen them once, just as you describe them, over the Detroit area. Disregarding the "contrails", what I found odd was the flight pattern....all due east and west, and pretty evenly spaced north to south.....not at all the normal flight paths for airliners I normally see from here. The day that I saw this was in November. Never before or since.

If they are stationary, they are likely contrails of moisture.

If they are spreading but still visible, then you have chemical trails.

No kidding. Like I said, I own no tin-foil hats. But it sounds like this guy on the radio just bought a whole bunch of stock in them.

I'm in Austin, TX, and just looked outside. There aren't ANY contrails here. You stole our contrails and I demand you send them back ASAP!

Reports on TAM of military air traffic being scrambled, planes going straight UP like rockets, somebody sent e-mail saying that nothing has taken off or landed at Hopkins since noon, activity reported throughout N.E. Ohio to to Michigan.

As far as the contrails, they do not appear to be in the normal air traffic corridors, and in a lot of cases they make grids and X's.

Listen live at WTAM or get the podcast tomorrow.

Update - "Airport thingie's fine" - direct quote from Allison. I guess the planes are flying.

Thanks.I was skeptical to begin with... I really think these boneheads at WTAM are causing a panic type situation.
If something were going on it would be out already...ratings must be down.

East-West flights were at the right altitude to be making contrails. That's not so odd.

I know one thing, the humidity here has been so low the past few days, I get shocked every time I touch metal door handles or other things. I've been taking my keys and discharging the static electricity before touching any metal.

Seems I am providing an overdue public service. And I can identify with willgolfforfood's sentiment - I saw the albaby beeber thread unfold in real time. It was a marvelous sight to behold.

Sad to say, No, that's not normal.

But are they chemical trails? It depends on who wants to know... Most people don't want to think they are anything but condensation.

So you think they look right.

I think they look like an intentional dispersal. The trails are not vanishing properly as they spread (as they would if we were only dealing with upper level condensation).

Same here. I'm looking out my office window in Fairlawn, Ohio (about 20 miles south of the radio station making these claims) and I see some contrails but they don't appear at all out of the ordinary.

I just went outside and had a look......right now there are 4 of them visible, all going due east, one probably over Detroit, the others are way further south.
