Sky riddle: Eleven what?

Written August 25th, 2014 by Hasso Hering

Xi 1

OK, so this is what it looked like in the northern sky around mid-day Monday. I can tell that it’s a Roman numeral XI. But what is somebody trying to tell us?

That it’s the eleventh hour? That it’s almost too late? Too late for what?

Or somebody on the ground said, “Hey my cell phone is dead; what time is it anyway?” Three pilots heard the question and tried to answer it. But why spell it out in Roman numerals, like an old pocket watch?

Or three jets were headed in the same direction when the guy in the middle said to one on the outside: “I’m sick of always being in the center; let’s trade sides.”

Something like that, right? (hh),

    Wow Hasso, you may have stumbled onto something! I recommend that for the next 3 months, at the same time of day, you go to the same spot and record your findings.

    We’ll be waiting for the report!

    Thank God, you’ve finally looked up and seen some chemtrails! Yes, keep looking up! See below the X and I you pointed out? The sky is all whited out. PLEASE LEARN MORE,

    Hasso, I believe with your help we could get more attention on this horrific spraying that is happening nearly every day. Don’t just laugh it off – it is very serious.

    In WWII, they were called contrails and helped lead the German fighters (or fighter props as the news media would call them today) to our B17 & B-24’s.
    They were very common in the 50’s if you looked up.
