Unidentified Contrail

I took this photo two weeks ago in Twentynine Palms, CA (near Joshua Tree and also very close to the Twentynine Palms Marine Corp Air Ground Combat Center). It was just about sunrise and I was surprised to be greeted with this view!
What's making this contrail? I have no idea, but it was moving fast!

  22. What's making the contrail? Probably a red-faced man with a team of reindeer; he's very busy just now.

  24. Beautiful shot, and very mysterious. I have seen a smaller version of that once and I never could figure out what made it.
