An odd cloud formation over Alaska has sparked wild conspiracy theories about what might have shaped it.
A bizarre cloud has sparked wild conspiracy theories on social media after it was noticed close to Lazy Mountain, Alaska, on Thursday.
“Not sure what but it looked cool,” Heather Isackson wrote on Facebook.
A rescue staff despatched to seek for a crash on Lazy Mountain discovered nothing suspicious, Alaska State Troopers reported.
“Further investigation revealed that a large commercial jet was flying in that area around the time that the photos and video were taken. The aircraft was contacted and reported normal flight operations on its way to JFK airport in New York,” Alaska State Troopers wrote on Facebook.
“Troopers believe that the photos and videos showed a contrail from the commercial jet combined with the rising sun which together caused the unique atmospheric sight. We greatly appreciate the numerous Alaskans that reported the suspicious sight this morning to law enforcement.”
