Numerous aerosol trails aka “chemtrails” are apparent in these photos sent by Gina from Taumaranui, which is a small rural town in the King Country of the central North Island. It is a farming area, as Northland is.
Such “chemtrails” are substantially different in appearance to the normal condensation trails left by jet airliners. The difference is that while condensation trails are composed of water vapor that dissipates rapidly, “chemtrails” linger much longer, often for hours and spread out over time to eventually cover the sky with a thin-milky haze. Rainwater tests show that New Zealand rainwater is being contaminated with heavy metals from these aerosol trails.

This is from Weatherwatch.co.nz, 18th Feb, predicting that: North Island drought conditions to get worse. I have included this morning’s rain radar image, showing Taumarunui on the map.
