DDTV: DONEGAL snapper Noel Keating has been trying for months to capture this image – a plane flying past the winter sun in the Donegal sky.
“I have tried all last year to capture this and today it finally happened,” says Noel.
“I saw the plane way off in the distance and I did what I normally do.. I used the vapour trail of the plane to guide a line across the sky towards the Sun to see it if would line up.. and this one did.
“As the plane got closer to the sun I couldn’t see it any more so I just viewed it through the Camera LCD display…. boy was I happy when it passed by the Solar Disc with all the Sunspots in clear view.”
Captured @ 1:37pm on the 3rd January 2015
