Hi All,

Here's an Airbus A320 flying in front of the Moon this evening, photographed from my deck using my 70-200mm f/4L telephoto lens. I was waiting for the BBQ to heat up and scanning for aircraft flying near the rising Full Moon. Managed to shoot this sequence just before throwing the sausages and steaks on the grill!

Two of the individual frames:

And an animation made up of several frames:

Great shots and execution, like the distortion from the engine exhaust

I was looking at the moon once thru my telescope and witnessed a satellite fly across it, it went by so fast, maybe 1/4 to 1/2 second. In excitement I very loudly exclaimed, "OH!!" and my wife who was standing nearby, not really caring about what I was doing, got startled and dropped her glass of redbull/vodka. HILARIOUS!! Just wanted to share that... LOL.

Did you observe that satellite before or after you had your glass of redbull/vodka??

I've done that several times and yes it's exciting and bright but if you ever have a I.F. (Iridium Flare) happen at max brightness as it flies through your FOV it will dang near blind you for 5-mins ! I've had that happen once before . Kinda shocking at first til you realize what it was and then looking at the sky to see what it was is extremely hard to do since you have the blind spot in your eye .
