I was checking daily weather updates as I do most mornings and hoping for some rain in the forecast. Weather channel showed no rain in the ten day forecast for my area in Northern CA so I turned to an application called Living Earth. It is a world map with near real time cloud and weather views around the world. I sometimes watch Pacific cloud and weather patterns in hopes of predicting weather for the CA pacific coast further out than 10 days. This morning I observed in the Living Earth map an extremely large and lengthy contrail extending from Western Africa to Australia, in a perfect straight line. The contrails were several hundred miles wide with 5 distinguishable trails reaching halfway around the world. At first I attributed this event as a glitch or application flaw. But as I studied the contrails further I could clearly see they were cloud like moisture or exhaust formations and appeared dissipating in some areas over the ocean.
