Those were the souls of the blessed ascending to heaven in the Rapture.
You missed it because God doesn't like you.

Sorry.

Didn't the Grinch have a "Dark House" which was capable of eliminating light presumably through the use of necromancy?

Its one of those anti-counterfeiting strips like in a 100 dollar bill.

It does not say sky sky sky sky sky sky so I am guessing that is not the real sky.

Now, I'm not one to complain about "ending a sentence with a preposition", but that sentence sucks ass.

"No one knows exactly why this weird black line is stretching across a beautiful Florida summer sky".

High altitude contrail?

I've seen those around here when they used to do a lot of launches at Vandenberg AFB.

The regular contrails weren't bad enough, now we have to start worrying about the anti-contrails? OMG where is Art Bell when you need him

Speaking of weirdest dream/nightmare ever last night: Imagine the new HBO Liberace movie but starring Hillary Clinton, set aboard Air Force One, and with her own Thai ladyboy. I've not been able to eat all day. I woke up - bolt upright at 3:30am - and have not slept since.
 
2013-08-02 10:47:54 PM
Calm down. It's just the contrail from the afternoon shuttle to Venus.

Shadow from my penis?  I'll try to keep it out of the sun, sorry guys.
 
2013-08-02 10:48:29 PM
Oh, and it's called "shade". Does that when the sun's rays are blocked, even if in part, but an obstruction. Like, you know, clouds.

Presumably, that dark "dot" is a thick point, not a think point, in the cloud.

Seriously: has no oner ever seen this kind of thing before?

/or it's a 'shop
//not interesting either way

It's a beam from Dick Cheneys energy weapon that gets its power from hurricanes (Dorian is around there right now isn't it?) that he used on the World Trade Center in order to turn it into dust. This was a test fire for something soon and something big I tells ya...

Thank you, yes. It's a contrail shadow. I see them fairly often, they're not that mysterious.

Wow, the pro meteorologist failed this one?  Fire his arse.

Try a crepuscular ray. Simple as that.  The cloud in the picture (or one above it and out of frame) has just one teensy bit of overlap with the antipodal point of the sun in the foreground.  No magic, no aliens, no NSA drones, no freakish weather.

As a meteorologist, I can confirm that this is indeed a photo of the Rapture. That shadow is the one guy they took from Florida.

It's clearly a flaw in the space-time continuum.

Hey now. We will have none of that sciencey sounding talk here young man. Now go to your room and watch the documentary titled Men in Black until you come back to your senses.

Whatever that black line is doing there in the beautiful Florida summer sky, hopefully the white clouds will stand their ground.

I was flying over in a helicopter. Had to take a leak out the door.  Produced a little shadow. Sorry for the disruption.

It's a shadow from the string that's holding up the world.

Saw a very similar example years ago, and even with the obvious source contrail a coworker couldn't be convinced that it was anything other than an alien spacecraft.

I too am a fan of wishful thinking, but Florida is WAAAY too big to send into space.

Best hope is a giant tsunami.
