Awesome video of airplane crossing sun

EarthSky Facebook friend Noel Keating captured this cool video of a plane crossing the face of the sun on January 3, 2015. He wrote:

I saw the plane way off in the distance, and I did what I normally do. I used the vapor trail of the plane to guide a line across the sky towards the sun to see it if would line up. This one did :)! As the plane got closer to the sun, I couldn’t see it any more so I just viewed it through the Camera LCD display … boy, was I happy when it passed by the solar disc with all the sunspots in clear view.

Thanks for sharing, Noel!
