Allegedly Genuine Photo Of Planar Eclipse

September 30, 2010


I know it looks Photoshopped to high hell, but this is an actual photograph of a plane trying its damnedest to eclipse the moon. It reminds me of the scene in the original Batman when the Batwing eclipses the moon, except less badass because that one formed the Bat-signal and this one formed clipart.

Photographer Chris Thomas in South East Queensland, Australia used a moon tracker in a place where there was a decent amount of airplane traffic to capture the photo, using an exposure time of 1/250th of a second.

Good looking, Chris. It just goes to show that, with enough time, patience and equipment, anybody can take a picture nobody else will ever believe is real. ADMIT IT CHRIS -- ADMIT IT'S SHOPPED!

Thanks to The Podiatrist, who claims the sight of too many bunions and ingrown toenails has ruined his fetish. Your fetish and my lunch both, buddy.
