Looks like an extra flight (last day of school for the term today) from Wellington to Queenstown.

 

When I first saw the trail it looked like a Wellington to Diunedin flight and would have gone south-east of me, showing the sunny side, but about 20-30km north of here it turned to pass over the city and I knew it was heading to Queenstown, meaning the sun was on the other side.

 

And for the chemtrail conspiracy theorists. The plane has been flying just east of the South Island and only just came over the coast about a minute ago. If these are chemtrails and not contrails/vaopr trails, by the time they reach ground level (prevailing westerly wind) it will be many miles out into the Pacific Ocean where there is NOBODY! Well, nearly nobody - 800km east of here are the Chatham Islands with a few hundred inhabitants.
