2016.1.0 - Greasy Sky

Not sure how this happened, as far as I know I was just switching back from earthview orbital rendering when this weird black soot appeared. I tried re-generating the weather, debugging scenery but nothing happened. It was gone when I relaunched FG.

Not exactly a bug but wonder if anyone knows why this happened and how it can be avoided?

If you sneeze whilst sitting in front of your computer, a similar fault can develop.

It can be avoided by using a handkerchief.

You guys are killing me. Seriously, I wonder if this isn't related to how the roostertail wake of the amphibious C172P occasionally appears dark. I assumed it was some difficult-to-reproduce lighting quirk.

Time to get serious though. *giggles*

The dark wake, yes, occasionally and unpredictably. The snot slouds, no, I've never seen that.
