Rainbow Contrail

Here's a picture of a British Airways 747 heading to Phoenix, AZ. Following behind it is a rainbow contrail, the first one I've seen before!
And to prove it's not a fake: http://contrailscience.com/aerodynamic-and-rainbow-contrails/

I don't remember ever seeing colours in a contrail before, either.

The rainbow effect must be due to all those hallucinogenic mind-control drugs and oestrogens they put into the chemtrail.

That 747 stated its life as Timothy Leary's personal aircraft.

Wow, even though I'm a meteorologist and have studied lots of physical phenomenon like this and I'm particularly fond of rainbow / halo optics, I've never seen or read about this effect before. Very cool to capture it as well +1.

Ok, so actually I was wondering if it might have been some dumping of that blue liquid in the toilets while in flight...

Wow, I learned a lot about contrails from that website, that sucked up almost an hour. Didn't know there was so much to that subject.

I suppose in some parallel universe, some contrail hobbyist has stumbled upon a photography website and has learned a few things too.
