Cloud streak by golftragic

Cloud streak

Late on Xmas Day a most unusual long streak of cloud appeared in the sky. It was far too long to capture all or even most of it. No, it's definitely not a con-trail, this shot shows the end of the cloud formation, it began in a larger formation and there was no further extension beyond this point.
what a beautiful scene

As if the sky was fraying... lovely light, too.

@rosiekerr That's a great descriptor Rosie, I like that one. It was an extraordinary sight, just wish I'd been able to get it all in, but no hope, it stretched a very long way.

How interesting, it looks a bit like a tornado formation. We used to see them similar to this when we lived in Cyprus, but if they didn't touch ground they just broke up. Once we saw four in a row but they all broke up and fizzled out to nothing.

@onewing It was fascinating. I don't think it was a tornado though. The streak was far too long, stretched for miles, too high and was a form of cirrus cloud. I guess we'll never know.
