This is not a vehicle but a most unusual event in the sky. It is the appearance of wide, transluscent line coming out of the western horizon and extending overhead.

I'm not reporting a vehicle, but rather an "event" in the sky. This event occured while driving on I-35 between Kansas City and Emporia Kansas at approximately 11AM. I had earlier in the morning called attention to chemtrail activity over Kansas City Missouri to my 18 year old daughter who was a passenger in the car with me. The incident I am reporting however is a gray line that appeared to emerge from the distant horizon. This gray, translucent line appeared to be about two inches wide when measured against my outstretched fist. I had a sense this may have been electrical in nature. The line extended from the horizon to directly overhead. I opened the sunroof of the car so my daughter could determine how far the line ran above and behind the car. Overhead, however, we saw a high altitude plane leaving a contrail behind it and the plane was precisely following the gray line. The gray line gradually faded and disappeared completely approximately seven minutes after we first noticed it. The plane continued ahead of us leaving its contrail. I have just recently become aware of chemtrails but in my reading about them thus far I've not heard anyone mention the gray line coming up out of the horizon. Has this previously been reported? Is there a known significance? Frankly this was one of the strangest things I've seen and it left both my daughter and me with a real, unsettling feeling.
