Strange Cloud Formation

On the date of 19 December, 2001 i witnessed a large convection trail approx 20miles accross in a large ,and almost complete circle; but this cloud formation was well below the normal cieling for that type of convection trail, or cloud type.

also saw about 5 to 10 area's where there were small down drafts.

((NUFORC Note: We wonder whether the source, in citing "convection trails," might be describing a typical condensation trail ("contrail") that appears behind high-altitude aircraft. That is a guess. PD))
