Check out these incredible (non-photoshopped) pictures of planes passing in front of the sun and moon by photographer Sebastien Lebrigand.

Lebrigand got the shots using a special astrophotography lens and had about a 1/4 of a second window when the planes crossed the paths of the sun and moon. 

More here.

The city seen from the Queensboro Bridge is always the city seen for the first time, in its first wild promise of all the mystery and the beauty in the world. » F. Scott Fitzgerald. And the plane approach to La Guardia, every time I see the city from above it’s like I’m a little kid again.

Caught this rainbow’d airplane shadow on the flight home yesterday. 

Thanks to Robotcosmonaut I found out that this optical phenomenon is called a “glory.” From Wikipedia:

A glory is an optical phenomenon that resembles an iconic saint’s halo about the shadow of the observer’s head. The effect is believed to happen due to classical wave tunneling, when light nearby the droplet tunnels through air inside the droplet and, in the case of Glory, is emitted backwards due to resonance effects.
