Location: Buena Park, CA
Shape: Light
Strange light at the end of a strange cloud formation, resembling a swift jetstream.

A strange cloud formation (seemingly appearing as a streak or jetstream) in the sky, strangely backlit from an unknown light source. At the tail-end of the jetstream, a minuscule light from an indistinguishable aircraft was lingering in the sky. I got out of my car to get a closer look at the streak, which remained distinctly illuminated in an otherwise clear and cloudless evening.

My friend lives in a nearby city, roughly 4 miles away from me. Both of us took a photo of the peculiar cloud streak/jetstream of this flying object.
