Ground Zero, as in NY? Just looks like crossing plane trails, if its not been faked. Of course, this is presuming The God is a Christian God.

The "cross" is a different colour than the clouds, which makes me want to think it's been edited.

If it was caused by two planes crossing,..it would be different colors than the clouds too right?? Or not?? Just trying to see other options too of what it could be

The "normal"  :w00t:  contrails are just condensation from engine heat and moisture.  Clouds would look the same I think.

Clouds can be two different colors based on how high they are, some being closer than others, or even just the way the sun hits them, but in this case I have to side with "edited" because if it were contrails they look unusually short/cut off.

There is no greater risk in life than doing nothing.

I'd just like to know what film camera (or scanning?) could possibly give such an awful result when shooting in sunlight..?  The low quality of the image makes it effectively impossible to analyse.  When added to the lack of any technical information attached to that story and the fact that not much shows up anywhere else about this picture.. it all tells me that it isn't worth spending another ten seconds on, so I'm outta h

Perhaps it was taken with a mobile phone camera, that could account for low quality of image

The article says it was a film camera, so unless they are fitting those to some sort of retro phone..  :D

BTW, the ratio of length to width doesn't line up with normal film formats - but maybe it was cropped.  Anyway, nothing much adds up, and the person who took it seems to have vanished (Interweb-wise), so it's a dead end.  I'm happy to call it a hoax  unless something else turns up to explain or corroborate it.

Looks like a fold or some sort of damage on the film frame which has then been scanned in.
