On Monday, August 21, 2017, millions of people tried to catch a glimpse of the solar eclipse. Not only that, they also immortalized the awe-inspiring moment in photos.
One person took a fluke shot of the eclipse with a plane flying right through the shot.
As soon as it was online, people immediately thought it was cool and one reddit user posted it. The original owner of the photo found it there and started a thread:
“Hello Reddit. I am the accidental photographer of this once in a lifetime shot. Thanks to whoever posted it earlier!”
Reddit users congratulated the photographer for taking such an awesome shot.
A total solar eclipse covered a narrow portion of the United States from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. And a partial one was visible across the entire continent of North America, as well as in parts of South America, Africa, and Europe. This was the first time since 1918 when North America experienced the path of totality from coast to coast.
