Western horizon Sky was clear, sunset colors in clouds pink to greying.

Distance is approx 30 + miles Size in the binos approx one half to three quarters inch.

I have been watching planes and the contrails they leave in the sky for about two months since I have read about them in some reports. The one that catches my interest I can describe as one circular telescoping puffy cloud leaving two wide apart thin streams twisting like dental floss before they disappear. I made a report about the cloud fist that opened podlike and an elliptical disc circle the area. The cloud was tube like and elongated to the opening pod. Before the pod opened there was an intense whiter color.

I saw last night about 15 degrees above the western horizon a puff of smoke with the two wide apart contrails following, descend at about 40 degree angle. In the binos I saw the contrails turn black, and the puffy tube cloud turning burgundy red with the head of the cloud a little intenser color. As it descended by a thin cloud I could see no plane in front of the "smoke "or contrails.

The whole burgundy red cloud stopped, elongated "wormlike" with the head flattening out disc shape. It began to descend a little more,straightened horizontally, and the whole thing disappeared.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
