Jet Splits Sky

Kilchoan Early Bird has sent in this picture of the sky split by a jet trail.  He says, "I took it at the lighthouse on Thursday after a jet had passed."

I have seen the the shadow of a contrail projected onto clouds below the 'plane, but this is new.  Has anyone seen anything like it before, and can anyone explain it?

Many thanks to Kilchoan Early Bird for the picture.

  1. I think it's an optical illusion. Seems that when you place a pen over the split the colours / tones are actually the same either side.
