”]While the nebulous streaks that run through this image are reminiscent of sections of the Veil Nebula, they are probably much more mundane in origin.  This  image is one from a set of nine and across the 45 minute time span, the band slowly drifted a small distance from left to right (South to North).  A couple of sources come to mind.  One would be the remains of an aircraft contrail, or it may be a very persistent meteor train.  My guess is these are the remains of an aircraft contrail.  There was nothing visible in the sky to confirm this guess.  This is not the first of these I have recorded, but this one has the most interesting internal structure.
