I set up wanting to capture the huge filament adorning the Sun which was stretching across the surface at over 300,000 km long. I got an unexpected surprise when I caught this plane transit. It was only on one frame, and at 15 frames per second that was one lucky catch. I wondered if anyone aboard could imagine how small they were compared to this filament.
