This happen around 8/20/13.

We were on a train working and we're sitting still in a railroad siding, waiting on trains. It was a clear night and out of the west came a contrail up around 2000 feet straight as an arrow, then came to a stop and then went up at a 45 degree angle up to 2000 feet up above Honeywell nuclear fusion rod plant which had reopened to work after a long strike.

It was not a cigar or saucer shape. it was shaped like a cloche or bell.
