"NASA warned people living in an area triangulated by New York, North Carolina and Charlottesville, Virginia they may see coloured clouds. But nature had other ideas."
I suppose mass disappointment is better than mass panic.
NASA's attempts to make red and green clouds have been thwarted by Mother Nature. The aeronautical agency's cloud coloration cravings are, naturally, all in the name of science: the idea was to use a sounding rocket to launch “10 canisters about the size of a soft drink can” full of “vapour tracers” made of “barium, strontium …
Now if they'd instead proposed that the soft-drink-can-sized containers generated a red and white cloud in the shape of a well know, er, soft drink can, a well-known soft drink company would probably have thrown enough money at it to get all the other clouds out of the the way first.
(other well-known soft drinks are available, but probably not in such easy colours.)
"(other well-known soft drinks are available, but probably not in such easy colours.)"
One evening when the conditions were just right, with a high cloud deck that ended a few miles west of my position, the setting sun was able to illuminate the underside of that cloud deck with a color reminiscent of Irn-Bru. No additional boffinry required.
Just when I was thinking I hadn't seen much from the chemtrail crowd lately, along comes this one, the rocket is clearly just a cover to pretend they weren't already using planes to spread the stuff. Possibly with added HAARP, I haven't seen that mentioned for a while either, did they all get abducted by aliens in cahoots with the illuminati?

Naaah, people are so conditioned to ignore the tin-foilers that the deep state can not only not have to deny it anymore, but can dye the chemtrails funky colours in the sky, and the public will still not believe the tin-foilers.
I am sure it will drive the foilers nuts, especially as it is such a brazen public way of doing it!
/me tightens my tinfoil-hat strap.
> Wasn't HAARP shut down?
That's what they want you to think, they do this big song and dance about shutting it down, and then a couple of weeks later they sneak back in and switch it on again.
And obviously the secret one they kept in a shed behind the garage is still operating.
Surely at that height, clouds, condensed vapours would not exist. What people would see (if they could), however is concentrations of ionised gases. It's nothing new, at least, on paper. Many years ago Analog, the SF magazine, ran a story on the very same theme. In this case, it was to warm a freezing planet, by reflecting more energy back to the planet's atmosphere. The cause of the freezing was a period of lower than normal solar activity, oddly rather similar to the present forecasts of reduced solar activity from our own sun.
