Titusville, Florida, prepares to wave goodbye one last time. CNN’s Tom Foreman and photojournalist Oliver Janney report. Jul 7, 2011
Persistent jet contrail in sky behind Apollo Monument at 2:27 minutes into video.
Time lapse video of chemtrails at 5 minutes into the video news segment.
Apparently CNN producers wanted to show the sky over Titusville, Florida to be devoid of space shuttle rocket plumes when some persistent jet contrails filled the sky over the ocean. As the sun was setting, CNN producers needed a closing shot and used the chemtrails to symbolize a shuttle launch. It looks like they were waiting for the trails to disappear, but the sun set before the “vapor trails” vanished, hence the time lapse video – fade to dark.
CNN narration, “And when the tourists depart this time, all that will be left is a suddenly shocking empty sky…”
…except for the chemtrails!
