Shape: Other
Duration:2 minutes
On June 30, 2010 at 9:45 A.M. I and another witness were traveling on Old Highway 112 between Cameron and Poteau, Oklahoma, just west of of Gilmore when we saw a shadow in the atmosphere. The shadow covered thin width and stretched horizontally across half the sky.

I exclaimed, "What the heck is that?" The other witness said, "What"? I showed her the shadow and she could not believe what we were seeing.

I thought it must be an atmospheric disturbance of some sort and after about a minute the shadow began to fade.

After 2 minutes the shadow was gone but a faint smell of smoke was noticed in the air which lasted a few seconds.

Soon afterwards where the shadow had been in the sky a wide contrail took its place......

Not sure what to make of this.......
