Social media was filled with reports discussing the incident and photographs showing the phallic sky images.
Officials from Naval Air Station Whidbey Island in Washington released a statement admitting one of their aircraft was involved after a local mother contacted a news station to complain.
She called it "the most monumental thing to happen in (Okanogan)".
Officials at a Washington state Navy base confirmed one of their aircraft was behind a contrail drawing of male genitalia spotted over a residential area.
Multiple photos of the skydrawing were sent to KREM, a local CBS affiliate, and some were tweeted by those on the ground who noticed the image.
A spokesperson for the Federal Aviation Administration told KREM the agency "cannot police morality".
And now, we know who is responsible for the artwork: a crew from the U.S. Naval Air Station in Whidbey Island, according to KREM2.
The Federal Aviation Administration, a government agency that regulates USA airspace, said the drawings did not appear to pose a safety risk and it "cannot police morality".
In a statement, they said: "We find this absolutely unacceptable, of zero training value and we are holding the crew accountable".
