Patience Pays Off
I was sitting outside the station this afternoon, hoping my daily shot would present itself. I had been photographing the moon which was visible in the eastern sky, when I noticed a jet flying south fairly close to the moon. A couple of minutes later there was another, then another. All getting close but none flying across the moon. So I waited and watched and finally after a few minutes this FedEx jet flew right through the moon giving me the image I had hoped for. This is a single image, not two images combined in Photoshop. This is actually what I saw. I shot this at a 400 mm focal lenth so I had to crop in Photoshop. I needed about an 800 or maybe 1000 mm to really capture a great image but I still thought it was cool and deserved to be shared. You just never know what you will get with a little patience.
