Check out this cool image of an airplane passing in front of the moon. GregDiesel Landscape Photography captured it on May 31, 2014. He wrote:

Unless you live by an airport and try all day/night it’s a really tough shot to get! Story behind it was that I was just taking my ‘daily moon’ shot and my shutter froze. I took the lens off cleaned the sensors and snapped it back on. Aimed at the moon and started to focus when I saw the jet enter the frame and then, I mean, I needed split-second reaction to focus and get about 5 shots as it flew through in about 2 seconds start to finish. Got lucky with the timing.

Lucky for us! Thanks, Greg.
