Invisible ship among contrails.
Multiple light and dark objects filmed in, among and near spreading contrails.
Answer: These were birds that were no where near, in or among the contrails.
Was this a near-miss between a projectile object on the left and the jet leaving a contrail on the right?
Answer: The "projectile" object was an insect caught flying in one direction while I filmed a plane flying in the other direction.
Answer: No. Bugs and planes do not fly at the same altitudes. The insect was flying between the camera and the plane I was filming making it only seem like they were about to have a mid-air collision.

What is this rod doing in the contrails? Do rods eat contrails? Are they yummy?
Answer: This is an insect that flew through the frame as I filmed a contrail overhead. The insect was between the camera lens and the contrail, closer to the camera and no where near the contrail which was at a much higher altitude. I have never tasted a contrail so I do not know if they taste good or not. There is no scientific data to support the hypothesis that "rods" eat contrails or that contrails taste yummy.
Answer to Image #5 of invisible ship among contrails:
Can't see it? That's because it's invisible, Silly!
Smile. You're on Candid Camera.
I have been studying Camouflage, Concealment and Deception since 1994 (wrote a book on this subject titled "The Pretenders" soon to be released). By and large I have found that if you see an aircraft using camouflage, it's probably not camouflaged. The use of camouflage is used to disguise or hide visibility. This technique is rarely observed unless an object is meant to be seen.
