Eclipse with airplane

At 09:35 I saw a plane rushing across the solar disk at 20x magnification, then immediatly turned the Lumix DMC FX150 in video mode on. And there was another one only a minute later!

Video on youtube

The rising sun already in eclipse was recorded on slide-film through a 500 mm telephoto lens.

A little more occultation: airplane crossing the partially eclipsed sun at 09:36
