Interesting Photo of the Day: Jet Crossing a Solar Eclipse

August 21, 2017’s much anticipated solar eclipse was visible from coast to coast in the United States. The luckiest of viewers were treated to a total eclipse, but it was a sight to behold even where only a partial eclipse could be seen. Of course, during and after the event, social media blew up with thousands upon thousands of photos—some more amazing than others:

What an incredible shot!
