|Rocket lounch in west Texas
August 31, 2019, While driving west on US highway 180 at around 4pm on the west side of Weatherford TX, I noticed a large contrail do west in line with the highway. It looked to be on the horizon but was not getting any closer, It was going straight up, it was about two hands' tall at arm's distance. There had been some rain earlier that day and there was some cloud cover in several layer. The object passed through the first layer of clouds and kept going up.
I had gotten to my turn on Garner Road off of US 180 (the Mineral Wells Highway). When I found a place to pull over and took a photo, the Contrail below that clouds was dissipating, but I could see the object and contrail in the clouds.
I stop again at the Rick Williamson loop and took one more photo and the contrail was breaking up. Using contrast on the photo you could see the contrail in clouds vary high up in the second photo.
