While stopped at a traffic signal last night, I looked off toward the crescent Moon where it sat near the horizon, curve pointed downward and slightly to the right. An airplane flew past, on approach to land at a nearby airport.

The flight path, distance and viewing angle made it look like the airplane was the same size as the Moon, and it passed by just below the crescent.

If only I’d had a camera, preferably one with really fast film and a good zoom lens…
