Skyder Webs, or as some would refer to them, "Chemtrails," have been appearing in our skies for many years now, along with rather unusual looking clouds. I've been aware of them ever since someone pointed them out to me back in 1999. Until then, for me, they went unnoticed. Actually, I've seen them all over the world without ever having to leave my home. You see, people from all over capture images of them either deliberately or inadvertently, unaware that they have captured a 'controversy.'
I've seen photos from Spain, Italy, Russia, Asia, from all over that contain these unusual looking contrails and their ever present companions, those wispy lace like clouds. Oddly enough, I've spoken to many who have never noticed them before and cannot see anything strange and unusual about them. There are some who become rather agitated at the thought that these contrails and clouds could be anything other than a perfectly normal variation of a typical jet contrail at high altitude and the lacey misty clouds that sometimes appear with them. "It's awfully cold up there and very high," they will say. "Don't be a conspiracy kook," they will tell people.
I cannot figure out why some folks would get so upset. Maybe it has to do with politics or religion. Those are two topics that can really get the fur to fly.
There are many explanations on the internet as to what they are, why they are up there, and what they are made of. I cannot prove or disprove any of those claims. I was made aware of them after never noticing anything odd in the sky. I see them now on a fairly regular basis and sometimes I think they are rather beautiful. So, I thought I'd photograph them and present them to you for your consideration. Now you can decide for yourselves what you think they are and what they are not. One thing is certain. They make rather striking images, don't they?
