“luck favors the prepared”

I had not really thought out my shot ahead of time.. and simply wanted to capture the Harvest Moon before it got too high in the night sky.
I gathered my gear, got to a favored spot, got adjustments set, and just then a jet started to fly across the face. Barely had time to realize, I was so intent on getting the shot set up. I saw it coming and fired until it exited into the night.

A long search followed afterward. I hoped to improve upon the shot, make adjustments, etc….
No other aircraft flew anywhere near or across the moon the remaining time there.
A rare moment captured with a bit of preparation…and luck.
