A plane (out of topic)

Before I forget, because it is something that I have not scored and could
not take photography, I wanted to share a precious effect that has made a
jet plane. It happened around 07: 39-07: 40, local time, I was going to
take one last photo to finish my session (which I started late), when to my
left I got something red with smoke behind (a slower meteor than The
satellites, rare). The place of that sighting was towards the East, at
about 40º-50º of height. As I continued to observe I was able to check
immediately that it was a jet plane. It is seen that it would have
reflected the outgoing sun, and with its wake behind it created that
effect. True that the reddish flare of the plane I could only see it 3-4
seconds at best, but it was a nice effect. Note that the reflection was
reddish, but the smoke was white.
Also comment on the amount of overly bright flashes of airplanes at
evening, if not for much weaker red lights could confuse them with
something else. I suppose they will go out and see the snow in the
mountains left by the storm last week.
