Weird Cloud Over Topeka Wednesday - Explained

Geoff McIntyre from Carbondale was at WIBW-TV Wednesday afternoon and brought in an amazing video. It may look like a tornado at first, but upon closer inspection... it's fairly obvious what created this odd looking cloud. This was caused by a jet, flying just above a layer of stratus clouds.

To learn more about this type of cloud, a quick "Google Search" of "contrails, will bring you all kinds of amazing images and facts.

Thanks Geoff for sharing.

If you see a cool cloud, or have a weather/science question, let me know.
