It’s that time of the year again. Time to put in some hours trying to get aircraft flying past the face of the moon.
After doing some research on this task, it is widely known that between October and March are known to be the best months. Not best for the weather, but for the placement of the moon.
Now after spending a number of hours under the moon in October, I give you the Hunter Moon Fly-by.
A little bit different as I was about eight miles from Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Connecticut trying to capture an image.
Thinking it was a little eaiser to get a nice shot because of the volume of planes taking off and landing, boy was I wrong. It is still a major challenge!
Here is a brief video that was on FOXCT the morning after I took this image. Meterologist Joe Fury describes the photo to the morning anchor crew during his weather forcast.
