In Flight Eclipse

On March 20, 2015, people in the remote northern places like the Faroe Islands got to see a total solar eclipse. Stratospheric balloon company Zero2Infinity sent a camera to watch it from above the clouds. Photographer Ben Cooper, however, got his view on board a Boeing 737-800 over the Norwegian Sea. The flight path allowed the passengers to see the eclipse for a full minute longer than ground viewers. See more photos and read about Cooper's experience at his website, LaunchPhotography.com.
