Photobombed by a plane: Sol

Something a little different today! This is a composite image of the sun, showing the surface detail and prominences, while being photobombed by a passing plane. The image was taken using an Altair GPCAM 130M with a 0.5x focal reducer, attached to a Lunt LS50Tha 600B PT solar scope. The image was captured using SharpCap Pro, pre-processed using AutoStakkert2 and Registax6, with final processing done using Photoshop CC.

Whilst imaging the sun from by back garden I noticed something very briefly pass through the field of view. A closer inspection of the video file showed my image had been photobombed by a passing plane.
