|white, caterpillar contrails over Los Angeles County
I witnessed white contrails in the eastern part of the sky shortly before sundown. The sky was clear. The trail was visible with the naked eye. It caught my attention because it seemed to be a chain of spheres instead of a streak of smoke. After about a minute I began observing with binoculars (Le Gran, 7x35, model K303, field 578ft. at 1000yds.) Through them I was able to discern worm-like movement, though not the actual object. After about 10 minutes I was unable to see the trail as it headed toward the western horizon.
