Hi Mike,

I agree with your analysis here. I only want to ad that the
rapid movement of the object may simply have added enough heat
to shift the dew point equilibrium condensation point. This may
be especially true at the lowest cloud boundary at the
penetration point.

Since weather radar is more apt to have detected water
condensation and ice crystal formation patterns, I wonder if
such a station (if it exists nearby at all) might have detected,
not only the object, but it's interaction with the cloud

The radar's proximity (beam size/energy saturation) would affect
both it's resolution and ability to detect ionization streaks.
