Airborne Sunrise and Sunset

Two flights last week – one from Indianapolis to Houston then returning four days later. I caught the sunrise early on Monday morning just as the sun peeked over the band of clouds on the eastern horizon.


On Friday I was on the wrong side of the plane to capture the sunset because I had waited too long to check the open seating chart. However, I did see this glow in the eastern sky just as the sun set on the opposite end of the sky. It only lasted for about three minutes.



  1. It’s beautiful- you’ve captured the shadow of the Earth (the dark blue band just above the horizon on the eastern sky during sunset)!
