Moon-Lit Jet Streams Above My Backyard
I walked out of my back porch and stepped outside to get something in my shed and I of course looked up as I was walking and one of my very favorite sky events in the summer was happening. Watching the jet streams from airplanes being lit up by the Moon. these I call events because I find them fascinating. Just an incredible sight too me. I love the way they look with the Moon itself being out there.
The sky happening when the moon and airplanes meet is so amazing!! People on the airplane have no idea what a a fascinating thing they left behind when flying above my backyard!! Try brightening up your screen and full screen the video too see it, it was brighter on my camera.
