Across America Mystery Planes are Releasing ‘Huge Plumes’ of Aluminum and Other Particles, Baffling Meteorologists — Waking Times

Terence Newton, Staff WriterWaking Times Across America meteorologists frequently see anomalous formations showing up on radar that have no connection to trending weather patterns.


The most recent incidents of such mystery aerosol formations over populated U.S. areas is from December, in which meteorologists from Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky all reported seeing unusual lines of formations. After quite a mystery, it was eventually agreed upon that this particular incident involved C-130 aircraft spraying chaff in the skies.

“Back on Dec. 10, the Evansville area was embroiled in intrigue when mysterious radar blips appeared over Southern Illinois and Western Kentucky. The long lines baffled the National Weather Service because they looked like storms – but it wasn’t raining.


The War Zone eventually confirmed the anomalies arose when a C-130 traveling to West Virginia from a military exercise out west released over our area huge plumes of military chaff – radar-jamming material mostly composed of aluminum.” [Source]

  1. I have not seen these chaff spraying planes. All the ones I’ve seen leaving trails have been swept wing jets. Either commercial or military.

    1. Oh. But I have seen gossamer clouds appear in the absence of chemtrails, as if aerosols dumped all at once rather than sprayed linearly.

      1. …as if this had just happened

  2. You have to be careful; being labeled a “conspiracy theorist” is the worst thing that can happen to a person!

    Anyway, I’ve heard about this for a while and I didn’t pay any attention to it until I started seeing it myself. I grew up watching planes in the sky and I’m used to contrails but there are a few curious things about the trails I personally started noticing since about 2011:

    1) They’ll last for hours, spreading out and eventually becoming a milky haze throughout the sky. The contrails of my childhood did not get excessively long because they’d disappear at a constant rate a certain distance from the plane. That rate would differ from day to day but it’d never be so slow that trails could stretch from horizon to horizon and they’d never spread out to become an atmospheric fog.

    2) Initial deposition will frequently be concentrated in the direction of the sun even when the rest of the sky is blue. I experienced this once while driving to the store and had to do a double-take. It was a beautiful blue day but many wispy white streaks were in front of the sun.

    3) “X” patterns, where one persistent trail crosses another, are common. I do not recall ever seeing this growing up because trails simply did not last long enough for another plane to make and “X”. It’s pretty common these days.

    4) Most of the planes I notice leaving these persistent trails are nondescript white planes flying very high. I can’t recall seeing any aircraft that appears to have any colorful commercial livery doing this.

    So if one is to believe one’s lying eyes, it’s a fairly reasonable hypothesis that it’s not just water vapor condensing out of jets’ hot exhaust. I don’t consider official denials to be definitive.

    1. Interesting too is these scientists are proposing spraying in the stratosphere. That is an altitude few planes are capable of. They would either have build a new fleet of strato planes to carry out this proposed geoingineering project or devise some other method of injecting particles into the stratosphere. The stratosphere requires much more spraying to cover the same corresponding geographical area in the troposphere, some five to ten miles lower. The trails we are now seeing are in the troposphere, between 40 and 60,000 ft. What would trails twice this high look like? Would we be able to see them? Would there be any? And that new fleet of astroplanes would have be about twice as fast as the chemtrail planes we see today to cover the same area, at a five to ten mile higher altitude. Stratospheric geoengineering is a mighty big proposal.

      1. The Stratospheric Controlled Perturbation Experiment (SCoPEx) project claims this:

        At the heart of SCoPEx is a scientific balloon, fitted with repurposed off-the-shelf airboat propellers.

        The advantage of the SCoPEx propelled balloon is that it allows us to create a small controlled volume of stratospheric air and observe its evolution for (we hope) over 24 hours. Hence the acronym, Stratospheric Controlled Perturbation Experiment. If we used an aircraft instead of a balloon, we would not be able to use such a small perturbed volume nor would we be able to observe it for such long durations.

        Initially, we may release ice (frozen water) to make sure the instrumentation works properly. Later, we plan to release calcium carbonate, a common mineral dust. We may also release other materials such as sulfates in response to evolving scientific interests.

        They say this is an experiment rather than an industrial strength spraying program but it’s interesting that they suggest that aircraft could have been used but they prefer balloons for this purpose.

        Anyway, I was reading that the stratosphere starts at around 66,000 feet at the equator and 33,000 feet at temperate latitudes. According to Wikipedia:
        “Commercial airliners typically cruise at altitudes of 9–12 km (30,000–39,000 ft) which is in the lower reaches of the stratosphere in temperate latitudes. This optimizes fuel efficiency”
        “The Concorde aircraft cruised at mach 2 at about 18,000 m (59,000 ft), and the SR-71 cruised at mach 3 at 26,000 m (85,000 ft), all within the stratosphere”
        IMO, the technology exists to spray up there if they want to.

      2. Youre right. 33,000 ft at mid latitudes. My estimates of the altitude of chemtrail planes Ive seen is a rough estimate based upon the altitudes at which most airliners fly. If they are flying at 40 and 50,000 ft they are indeed in the stratosphere. thanks for pointing that out.

  3. One reasonable possibility is that the persistent trails are sprays which are a form of climate change mitigation that is being done without telling the public. The idea is that using atmospheric aerosols to reflect some of the sun’s rays [solar radiation management] will help maintain the climate within its historic range. This is something that is being actively explored and there are officially acknowledged experiments in progress. An example is Stratospheric Controlled Perturbation Experiment (SCoPEx) .

    Here is a paper on the potential effect of aerosols used for geoengineering:

    A wide range of particles could be released into the stratosphere to achieve the SRM [i.e Solar Radiation Management] objective of scattering sunlight back to space. Sulfates and nanoparticles currently favored for SRM include sulfur dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, carbonyl sulfide, black carbon, and specially engineered discs composed of metallic aluminum, aluminum oxide and barium titanate [11]. In particular, engineered nanoparticles are considered very promising. The particles would utilize photophoretic and electromagnetic forces to self-levitate above the stratosphere [11]. These nanoparticles would remain suspended longer than sulfate particles, would not interfere with stratospheric chemistry, and would not produce acid rain [12]. However, while promising, the self-levitating nanodisc has not been tested to verify efficacy, may increase ocean acidification due to atmospheric CO2 entrapment, has uncharacterized human health and environmental impacts, and may be prohibitively expensive.

    Earlier in that paper, there is a section that states:

    Our analysis suggests that adverse public health impacts may reasonably be expected from SRM via deployment of stratospheric aerosols. Little is known about the toxicity of some likely candidate aerosols, and there is no consensus regarding acceptable levels for public exposure to these materials.

    So the paper suggests that SRM deployment is likely to cause adverse public health impacts. However it’s likely that the climate change scenario is more dire than is openly acknowledged so the stratospheric aerosol injection is being done anyway despite the risks and unknowns. One can imagine that openness would precipitate a very lengthy process of public consensus building that could actually fail. You’d have to convince people that climate change represents such a certain catastrophe that it’s worth possibly getting sick to try to stave it off. Even if governments succeeded in that task the result could very well be social breakdown anyway if people started accepting that they were in a civilization ending scenario.

    The above paper does not mention this but one possible unintended consequence of the aerosols might be ozone layer depletion. As mentioned above sulfur dioxide, in addition to being produced by burning impure coal in China and elsewhere, can also be used as part of a SRM program. However it’s a compound that’s known to have an effect on atmospheric ozone which helps absorb UV radiation.


    In January 1993, the Earth’s average stratospheric ozone concentration was the lowest on record. Although the ozone layer has since recovered, the cause of this reduction has interested and concerned scientists. Recently, this ozone event has been linked to the June 1991 eruption of the Philippine volcano Mount Pinatubo.1 One of the major atmospheric effects of this eruption was the addition of 15-30 MT sulfur dioxide (SO2). This excess SO2 has been linked to the abnormally low ozone levels. However, the actual ozone depletion was less than scientists expected for this amount of SO2. In this paper, this phenomena will be explained.

    As shown, SO2 has been found to not change ozone concentration at 25 km in the first two months after a volcanic eruption. Then, in all three long-term computer modeling studies, the ozone concentration decreases, due to the aerosol effect.

    So SO2 is known to promote ozone depletion while there are also reports that UV levels have been increasing over the past few decades. This could be having an effect on plant life already since they can’t get up find shade. Here is a report on bigleaf maple trees dying in Washington state:

    Something is killing bigleaf maples — Washington’s biggest broadleaf tree — and scientists can’t stop it. They don’t even know what’s causing it.

    “We’ve looked for everything we can possibly think of and what people smarter than us can think of,” said Amy Ramsey, a forest pathologist with the state Department of Natural Resources.

    From British Columbia to California, stands of bigleaf maples are dying, leaving bald patches in the forest canopy or even denuded hillsides.

    Reports of dying and dead maples first reached the DNR in 2010, Ramsey said. Foresters noticed the trees were producing small, scorched-looking leaves or none at all. Sometimes, the crown — the upper most branches of the tree — would die.

    The maples would often put out a large number of seeds before finally succumbing.

    Now, even though the scientist studying the die-off is puzzled my theory is that the culprit is elevated UV-B radiation reaching the surface of the planet. The symptoms give it away; I’ll provide a couple links to back up my hypothesis.

    1) The leaves are miniaturized and scorched.

    Our primary hypothesis was that enhanced solar UV-B radiation-induced DNA damage significantly reduces leaf growth and development. Damage to DNA above ambient levels might delay cell division until the injury is repaired, or might delay cell expansion (Srivastava 2002; Lo et al. 2005; De Lima-Bessa et al. 2008; Hectors et al. 2010). Delays in cell division and expansion during leaf expansion and possible cell apoptosis might lead to modifications in leaf morphology, such as decreased leaf size, or even premature leaf senescence.

    The results indicated that the chlorophyll contents were affected by enhanced UV radiation. The chlorophyll a, b, and total contents were decreased compared with the control values and reduced with the enhanced UV radiation, but the carotenoid was increased compared with the control and also reduced with the enhanced UV radiation.

    So excess UV-B causes miniaturized leaves that die prematurely and reduces green chlorophyll production while increasing yellow/orange carotenoid production. In other words, small short-lived, yellowish, scorched-looking leaves fall of the trees.

    2) The maples put out large numbers of seeds before dying.

    A team from the University of Geneva (UNIGE) has discovered that UV-B can be a powerful inducer of flowering, but that a protein called RUP2 blocks their action to prevent early flowering. This work is published in the journal Genes & Development.

    Flowers result in fruit and seed production. Elevated UV-B levels caused the trees to flower and produce seeds abundantly before dying.

    So yeah, the life-giving sun is killing the trees! Is there anything more ominous? If these are accelerating processes, can the events occurring in the human sphere (of politics) be anything but inconsequential distractions? Is it a coincidence that a chronically attention-seeking, theatrical conman, who manufactures artificial crises, is president right now?

    The last time scientists believe UV-B harmed trees to a significant extent the earth experienced what they consider its largest mass extinction.

    Although Siberian Trap volcanism is considered a primary driver of the largest extinction in Earth history, the end-Permian crisis, the relationship between these events remains unclear. However, malformations in fossilized gymnosperm pollen from the extinction interval suggest biological stress coinciding with pulsed forest decline.

    These results support the hypothesis that heightened UV-B stress [me: the paper contends that the extensive volcanic eruptions released ozone depleting cases] could have contributed not only to pollen malformation production but also to deforestation during Permian-Triassic crisis intervals. By reducing the fertility of several widespread gymnosperm lineages, pulsed ozone shield weakening could have induced repeated terrestrial biosphere destabilization and food web collapse without exerting a direct “kill” mechanism on land plants or animals. These findings challenge the paradigm that mass extinctions require kill mechanisms and suggest that modern conifer forests may be considerably more vulnerable to anthropogenic ozone layer depletion than expected.

    The SRM paper also makes a reference to acid rain, which SO2 also causes. On the EPA’s site it’s said that acid rain can leech aluminum out of soil, damaging plants. However, as stated in the SRM paper, aluminum is also directly used in the aerosols. What goes up must come down so it’s really a double whammy for the flora. Furthermore, acid rain can cause nutrient enrichment of water bodies resulting in algal blooms, deoxygenation and fish kills. Again, this is something we have been seeing a lot of in recent times.

    The point is that SRM could potentially have adverse human health effects and accelerate other ecologically destructive processes which would make it a really tough sell to the public. Therefore global warming must really be a catastrophic “done deal” for governments to resort to secretly doing it nonetheless (if they are actually doing so). In fact, the idea that there was any hope of mitigating climate change by any means less drastic than geoengineering could have been an optimistic lie. In other words, emissions by industrial civilization may not be totally responsible for the climatic changes. However I’ve gone on long enough and that’s another story.

    1. Interesting theories. I would add one other possibility. The global warming mitigation might be a cover story for something more sinister. They are obviously spraying something secretly and the conspiracy theory they promote, without coming right out and saying it, is that it is being done for our own good. But it may be being done for entirely different purposes. We are breathing in these sprayed nano particles which permeate the organs of our bodies to do god knows what. Morgellons, for example. Fibers that replicate within the body. Intelligent evil dust, scattered everywhere. Like confetti.

      1. Yeah, nano particles are possible as they are also spoken about as part of a climate engineering scheme in the paper I linked above.

        In particular, engineered nanoparticles are considered very promising. The particles would utilize photophoretic and electromagnetic forces to self-levitate above the stratosphere [11]. These nanoparticles would remain suspended longer than sulfate particles, would not interfere with stratospheric chemistry, and would not produce acid rain [12]. However, while promising, the self-levitating nanodisc has not been tested to verify efficacy, may increase ocean acidification due to atmospheric CO2 entrapment, has uncharacterized human health and environmental impacts, and may be prohibitively expensive.

        Now as to whether the ultimate purpose of the spraying is geoengineering or poisoning (or experimenting on) the population, I can only say that I don’t know but it’s possible. We have historical cases of cities being secretly sprayed with chemicals: so it would be naive to argue that the government is morally above doing so.

  4. I have one post in moderation presumably due to the many links I provided.
