A VERY unusual..............."fognomenon?"
« on: April 02, 2015, 05:17:40 PM »
I've posted pictures over the years of fog that was solely over the Hackensack River and nowhere else, but it always appeared from my vantage point that the foggy bottom was at or just above the surface of the water.

Last night, I saw something I had never seen before: fog that was like a long, thin stream high above the 40 to 50 feet above.

I started taking pictures right away - shoot first and ask questions later. The three images below were taken between 12:00 and 12:05am. The stream was rapidly lengthening in a northerly direction. You can see its height varying from minute to minute against the treetops.

I exaggerated the exposure in the third one to show what the full length visible to me was -  from the Ice House almost to the Anderson St bridge (in the first picture, it seemed to maybe reach the White Manna).

Has anyone ever heard of a thin, wavering stream of fog that dances 40 to 50 feet above a river?

Any meteorologists out there?

I might suggest that if you observe more Zombies than usual along the streets, the cloud might have been the prelude to an alien invasion. Hey, you never know.
