Details:
For months Ive been observing airplanes flying through the sun on their way to Newark airport, but Ive never been successful in capturing the perfect shot since the sun is usually too bright to allow for proper exposure with regular telephoto lens and DSLR. Today, the summer haze and NYC pollution allowed me properly expose the sun at a good angle for the busy air traffic route, a few minutes before the sunset. As I focused, surprise: sunspot! I quickly checked spaceweather.com to find out it was the huge AR2665!
