"X" marks the spot

I was on my way out this morning and saw this in the sky.  It caught my attention. When I reached the gate where my parents live, I jumped out of the car to take these 3 pictures.  My parents thought my pants was on fire!!!

My mom was sure that it was a natural phenomenon.  My dad said it was contrails.  Wikipedia says that Contrails (short for "condensation trails") or vapour trails are artificial clouds that are the visible trails of condensed water vapour made by the exhaust of aircraft engines.

Fortunately, I had my camera in my bag.  If you look carefully, you can see what looks like an inverted rainbow

They say "X" marks the spot.  Okay, we got that.  So what's the spot about?

Either there's a giant ballot box in the sky or its a reminder for people to register themselves as voters? I'd prefer to see a batman logo there myself. :D

Something for the "X" Files Lita. Maybe it is because Xmas is near or is it a sign that the heavens have spoken and it is up to us as individuals to glean for ourselves.

Brilliant pix, Lita! I wonder what that's all about, too!!! Indeedy-me, what IS the spot that x is marking, eh?

Johan, That's quite a funny comment but yeah, I think it is a great reminder to us that we need to vote.

By the way, I think the Batman logo only works at night!! hee hee

Cheah,

I get what you mean about the "X" files. It's always a mystery and somehow adds spice to our lives.

If not for blogging, it would have remained in my camera and lost over time.

Thank God, I have this blog.

:)

*Note: Our "Fried Rice" with Haris is still pending. :D

Pat dear,

Yeah, I wonder what it's all about too. Your profile pic seems to me that you are looking at it! LOL

Hugs for you! :D
