Astrophoto: Plane Pwns the Moon

Astrophotgrapher Sebastien Lebrigand lives along the flight path to the Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris and regularly captures planes flying in front of the Moon (see another of his shots here). But this might be the image to end all ‘plane crosses in front of the Moon’ pictures. This plane is seriously taking over the Moon! Plus, its a great detailed shot of the lunar surface.

Sebastien took this image using a Canon EOS 60D, with a 102 mm refractor and 1320 mm of focal length.

        Thanks Ivan, I hadn’t heard this word before, I must be out of the loop! On a side note, what’s happened to LC and Torbjorn, our resident experts? I learned a great deal from their respective comments, nearly as much as I learn from you! Good Day.

        You’re welcome, William! I’ve no idea which ‘black hole’ LC and Torbjorn have disappeared into. I would comment more, but nobody bothers to read my comments – except you, so thanks!

    This is frustrating! It’s coming toward me. . .it’s going away from me. . .it’s coming toward me. . .
