Flight to the Sun by Thierry L.

Larger here. Stephen Spielberg eat your heart out.

This is an incredible (and genuine) image by a chap who specialises in ‘astrophotography’. He was taking a photo of the sun using something called an H-alpha filter and caught the jet passing through the frame purely by chance.

One of the comments on the original post sums it up:

Two objects 93 million miles apart and they look like they are almost touching. Only in photography. Once in a lifetime shot. Great.

See here for more of his astrophotography.
