Great job on the time lapse. Ive been trying to figure out what species of cloud this is. I thought for sure it was a rocket trail, however I cant find any mention of a launch anywhere. The best alternate I can find is ice crystal clouds that, according to satellite weather sites, started the day in Idaho, of all places, and passed through the entire state of Nevada and made it to southern California in time for the sunset. If so, we *NEVER EVER* get these kinds of clouds at these latitudes.

It must have been a rocket trail! Just have to find the source, maybe a military test? :)

Ive found this on twitter:
So there was a missile launch from a submarine near San Diego.

I guess that was it. I cant find any other reference, but that makes sense I guess.
