Rising moon

I was shooting a UVa baseball game with a 400mm lens when I noticed an airplane streaming across center field. The airplane (Continental) was heading right for the rising moon. I quickly adjusted my camera settings and raised my lens to the image. I got off a series of images before, during and after the plane crossed over the moon. The after seemed to bring the most sense of placement in the series of images. It reminded me of the first time I saw airplanes flying post 9/11.
