This rare moment was captured by Andrew McCarthy who captured this splendid image with the help of a telescope which was fitted with a hydrogen-alpha solar filter that particularly highlights the chromosphere (a layer of the sun’s atmosphere).
I was shooting the sun in hydrogen-alpha light, so as the plane passed you could see the contrails scatter the light from the sun, while the plane was invisible unless covering…
