I’ve been trying for months to photograph an airplane with contrail crossing across the face of the moon, I finally succeeded last Friday. I guess I’m lucky I live in Las Vegas which is on the path of a lot of airplanes flying to and from other destinations.

una foto originalissima che nasce dal fortuito incontro di due soggetti che sei stata pronta nel riprendere nel momento giusto e soprattutto avendo l'accortezza di evitare movimenti accidentali che avrebbero vanificato la nitidezza della luna.
Oltretutto hai preso la foto anche con la giusta esposizione.
Ciao e buona domenica

this is a magnificent image, so simple and suggestive at the same time. I love the sense of space, the details on the moon, the 3D impression of the plane, the evening mood and colours. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

An amazing sight. The details you've captured are amazing - I had no idea the moon is beautiful and works a treat. Composition, colour, idea, angle direction of the aircrat and its contrail, every element works. The work you have done on this has certainly paid of, it has a feeling of solitude and power. What look so stunnung is the position of the jet aircratf in front of the moon in the rarified atmosphere at probably thirty nine thousand feet or may be more, I enjoy a feeling of solitude and power here. Photography thats out of this world, litterally. Congrats

This exquisite shot belongs in the group theme, The Moon.... The timing was superb, as is all other elements of the photo. The small aperture has allowed you to achieve excellent depth-of-field, and the fast shutter speed has frozen the plane in space.

This image is just stupendous! Did you shoot it with a telescope?:) Macro shot of the Moon! And the color of the sky is unbelievable! Magical image all around!

Looking through some of your earlier photos I came across this one, which I had missed before. It's a truly mindblowing composition, so very well done.
