I'm sure there must be reasons you haven't mentioned why this
case is "amazing", AJ, but at first sight this looks to me like
a cloud effect. It's described as "hovering" so apparently it
didn't shift significantly.

Possibly it's related to the "cloud hole" phenomenon we
discussed here before, which is thought to be caused sometimes
naturally by ice crystals, sometimes artificially by jet
exhausts. We saw observations and photos of cloud dispersing
close to jet contrails.

Another possibility (perhaps combined) is the shadow of a length
of contrail cast on an underlying cloud veil. The "object" is
said to be only a few hundred meters high though, which would
seem to rule out these theories.

Is there any evidence of its real height? What altitude are the
clouds in the photo I wonder? Did Claudeir Covo establish the
time, sun angle, weather etc?
