    Unfortunately you can't tell from the images what sort of particles or what
    altitude they are at. Safe to assume the first narrow streak includes heavy
    pieces and particles and two hours later it is dust and smoke. Interesting
    that the streak spreads and increases in size as it drifts east for 6 hours
    then disappears very rapidly. It wonder it was dropping in altitude the
    whole time or just reached some threshold of diffusion where it became
    invisible to the radar.
