Aurora contrail,with 2 triangular objects in the sky,where found in the picture by a friend

while driving west on I-70,at 9am local time,I took a picture of a contrail (Aurora,string of pearls"). when I got home I sent the pic to a friend In Las Vegas, who sent it back to me with 2 objects(triangles)marked so I could see them.I never seen them while taking the picture ,as I was only interested in what I beleieved to be the Aurora's contrail,I do have the pics,original ,and the one sent back to me with the objects marked,in my computer files, as well as the original picture,taken while moving west at 75 mph, in a van.

((NUFORC Note: We have looked at the two images that are alluded to by the witness. The first shows a contrail, but we have no way of knowing whether it was generated by the "Aurora" aircraft. It may be nothing more than a normal contrail that has taken on a "buttermilk" appearance, which often happens in a slightly turbulent atmosphere. Also, the second photo does appear to show two amorphous "blobs," that appear to be somewhat triangular in shape. Our computer monitor does not allow us to identify them, however. We doubt that an Aurora aircraft would fly in formation with another, although that is a guess. Also, if they were flying as low as the photo suggests they would be, they would be very loud to anyone on the ground, and they would be difficult to miss. Our assumptions are predicated on the larger assumption that the "Auora" aircraft actually exists. PD))
