Jet Crossing Sun

I was getting close-up images of the Sun in red, hydrogen-alpha light, when this airplane crossed through the field of view. It makes me wonder of the people on the airplane at the time and how they would feel to know that from my perspective they had had a “moment in the Sun.”

Also, happy May Day. May first is halfway between the spring equinox and the summer solstice and for that reason is known as a cross-quarter holiday. In the past it was considered the first day of summer since the Sun will be at its highest point in the sky in a month and a half. Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream was set in mid May. Now “official” summer is delayed until June when the weather’s warmth finally catches up with the movement of the Sun.

Sweet dreams!
