Karl and List,

Conventional contrails would be created by conventional aircraft
and therefore should have been picked up by the conventional
radar in the NORAD radar web. It's a little unusual that these
were visually spotted, but not electronically in the NORAD
defence sector. Even a bolide, for instance, should be visible
to radar.

The CNN report quoted a NORAD official: "I don't know that
anybody was predisposed to think it might be some thing or the
other," he said. "We don't even know that it was a thing. It was
just simply reports of contrails. We don't even know that it was
the same one. We had reports from different places and NORAD did
its job and tried to find out."

Really? Billions of dollars worth of equipment and that's the
best he could come up with?

Conventional or not, under the present circumstances - this is
lame. But it is a typical response to unknown aerial phenomena.


Best,

Don Ledger
