What plane do you fly on that has such clear windows? That's a better quality picture than I take normally!
It was a brand new Air Canada Boing 737-8. The most important when shooting through windows is to completely cover it around the lens to eliminate reflection.
Like push the lense up to the glass?
Also clothing, because the glass is often several layers, so put a jacket over your head/camera so its totally blacked out
I did this and was able to take a 10 second exposure with my cell phone and actually pick up aurora borealis near Iceland. It worked surprisingly well.
EDIT: Ask, and ye shall receive: https://imgur.com/a/43GYTYe
I want to point out that I could not really even see it with the human eye, I just was able to see a faint light (not that it was green).
To get this I basically had to use the largest ISO and longest exposure (10s) in order for enough light to be capture. You would get a MUCH better effect though if you were to take multiple 1s exposures and do post-additive cross-correlation to line them up, as I believe cell phone cameras don't have a physical aperture anyway so long-term exposures basically add up per-pixel intensities over a period of samples (the stars would work well in orienting the image).

How to take 10 second exposure on iPhone? I assume u clicked on iPhone?! If not my bad. Good pics :))
I'm not sure in iPhone, but I'm guessing there is an Advanced or manual mode feature where you can set the aperture (sometimes it doesn't say its' in seconds, but it is). You have to REALLY keep the phone still for any sort of long exposures.
Time to dive into camera settings. Thank you kind stranger
Yeah, otherwise you'd be able to see the lens or the camera in the reflection.
For sure. It helps here that there is basically what amounts to a singular light source on the horizon. If the sun is way up in the sky light is reflected from literally every part of the visible image causing hazing and overall loss of contrast.
I think he means put it up against the glass and then cup your hand around the lens to get rid of any surrounding light. Or i guess as it's been said use your clothing instead
cupping your hands is not sufficient. you have to cover the whole windows around the lens.
I don't like to the camera to touch the glass because I'm afraid the vibration will blur the image. I press part of my hand to the glass instead.
Also helpful is shooting from the side away from the sun and using dark clothing to block off reflections, and trying to not shoot at an angle that is far from perpendicular to the window.
I was lucky to have an extra smooth flight. also using a wide angle helps for that. I firmly pressed the lens against the window.
yes, push the lens firmly against the window and completely cover all the window around the lens using clothing or a blanket.
What was your exposure length like? Great picture
Also want to know this
Yeah so I just checked and it was ISO 6400 for 4s for the stars, and ISO 200 for 1/20 for the foreground.
Thanks man, I'm gonna try this next time I fly somewhere. Do you know of any good guides for stitching together these two separate exposures?
I used 2 different exposures, one for the stars and one for the rests. The stars were about 10secs at high ISO and I took about 15 shots to get one usable, when magnified at full res it is still not perfect but usable. For the foreground it was a lot shorter, 1s IIRC, I'll confirm when I get back home. The plane flight was extra smooth so that allowed me to try the long exposures.
Makes a perfect background for a cellphone!
Right place at right time in right plane!
Trans Atlantic on a 737? What was the route?
YUL-DUB on a 737 MAX 8 in early October.
I think you mean a 787-8
FYI: AC flies the 737 MAX 8 from YYT/YHZ to LHR.
Really. I seriously had no idea they were flying 737s across the Atlantic.
Edit: I just checked and every one of those flights recently has been a 787 or 777.
And sometimes YYZ-KEF/DUB/SNN :)
it was indeed a 737 MAX 8, YUL-DUB in early October.
So this is some kind of composite, right?
It’s seems like the exposure required for the stars would blow out the other stuff
For sure. But other than the stars this is 100% what it looks like. It’s fucking awesome.
Yes, I did 2 different exposures, one for the stars and one for the rest!
I took this same picture from my Spirit Airline flight , but there was dried vomit all over the window. Didn’t come out as well , it’s mostly a picture a dried vomit.
This picture puts things into perspective for me. There’s no point stressing over the small things.
Try LSD my friend
DMT is a whole other experience.
Someone put it in the (Buds) bowl at a party, thankfully I found out a minute afterwards.
Peak effects would be insane otherwise... they're already crazy enough.
I think it was a 20 minutes of interdimensional tripping before it started wearing off.
Great picture. I took a similar pic when I flew to Sydney from Los Angeles. My picture did not capture the sun as well as yours. Very nice.
thanks a lot!
How is that window so clean? The windows on the planes I board seem to all be semi-opaque at best
it was a brand new AC 737-8 ... got lucky!
Reminds me of the cover art of The Mars Volta Noctourniquet. Great pic!
Same for me, every time. Came to comments to look for a mention of it.
My new iPhone wallpaper thanks.
That is stunning.
Which way were you heading?
eastbound heading toward Ireland. <edited> not westbound but eastbound lol. whatever brain bubble I had.
Are you saying “toward Ireland” only in the sense that you started at Charles de Gaulle or Schiphol or something and you’re about to fly over Ireland? Because otherwise westbound toward Ireland would not be “transatlantic”.
No curve - Take THAT round globe delusionists!
definitely a proof that earth is not totally flat either - there's a notch on the right hand side =D
Damn, that's an amazing shot! I might actually use it as my phone wallpaper if it's ok.
thanks a lot! yeah please do :)
Hey, kinda random but can I use your photo for an album cover?

Is that from this morning? The sunrise I saw looked exactly the same today, only 30,000 feet lower.
I am bored so I try to match up the view with Stellarium. I entered your position (you said Westbound near Ireland) and also entered a time around about sunrise...but I can't for the life of me find the matching view. In fact, I can't even recognize any constellations on your pic (total shame since I am interested in astronomy). Was this picture maybe taken some time ago so that my time entered in Stellarium is wrong? Just wondering...
it was in early October, a YUL-DUB flight and IIRC we were roughly somewhere on the south of Iceland... Let me know if you can match it up. When I get back home I'll check the the exact time it was taken.
Cool that may help. Exact time might not be important because I see it should be around when sun is rising :)
I love transcontinental / oceanic flights. Something surreal and existential about being so high up for so long, traveling between two places that are often so totally different from one another.
The sometimes perpetual sunsets (if you’re flying west). Recognizing a foreign landscape or a geographic feature from a map I saw long before. Getting a sense of the scale of the earth.
I remember flying over the city of Tehran on a flight from Qatar to New York. Seeing the entire city in one glimpse beneath me, imagining how the daily lives of the millions of people there unfold. A city that is completely alien to me, and a place I may never actually visit in my lifetime. Yet there it was, for a few minutes within what felt like arms reach but also getting that sense that it couldn’t be further away.
It’s the light version of seeing the world from outer space.
tomorrow gonna be a good day
Great phone background!
I love flying. Moments like this are so peaceful...
Concave earth confirmed!
This picture makes me exhausted. Is it late and bedtime? Is it early and I haven’t slept? What time zone am I in? Ahhhhhhhh
New phone wallpaper!!!
my new wallpaper
Gorgeous!! I’m about to fly through the lunar eclipse and I hope I can capture it. What camera did you use? Or any suggestions?
oh! hopefully you'll be on the right plane side. For this I put my lens firmly against the window and completely block the rest of the window around the lens with clothing. Hope for a smooth ride for longer exposures...
my camera is a Sony A7R III and I used a Loxia 21 lens.
Man, if I had the ability to give gold right now, this would break my gold-giving cherry. Wonderful pic.
I always thought it would be cool to look for seat sales just so I could take photography from a plane but it's hit and miss as to if they let you. I've only been on a plane a few times, the first time they didn't seem to mind me taking pics, but on another occasion they told me to put my camera away.
Best wallpaper ever
So you're the guy who opens the window blinds on a red-eye and wakes everyone up....
ahah - but it was never to bright to make such a difference PLUS you need to cover the whole window with clothing or a blanket to eliminate reflection ...
I was in a flight home going west during a sunset and got to enjoying a continuous sunset for a few hours. It was incredible. Great pic OP!
I've been fortunate enough to have seen this in person, and it's one of the most beautiful things.
What a shot! I dream of getting perfect transition shots like this. Well done!!
thanks so much!
Beautiful image. But transatlantic in a two-engine Boeing 737 MAX? Really? Even if it’s a Boeing I’m not going on that flight.
thanks! yup, YUL-DUB on a 737 MAX 8!
Have you ever wondered like how any of this shit makes no sense?
Like its all an illusion. Were on a sphere that is suspended in a void of darkness with a big gas ball.
This shit blows my mind.
Earth looking a little flat here......
Is so beautiful !!!
The world is clearly flat. Prove me wrong /s.
Flat earthers unite
I fly a lot - trans-Pacific rather than trans-Atlantic, but the sunsets and sunrises from high altitude over the ocean are always gorgeous.
Found my new wallpaper
As you can see, earth is flat.
This is early 80s book cover material. And that's a compliment.
I just want to add a prism in the middle of that so it become Dark side of the Moon
Is it stars or snow? 🤔
man, it was snowing upward from the clouds. amazing =D
Im in love..... just in love with this pic. Yesterday I flew from Osaka to Paris i've seen sunset more than one hour long.
The fact that the stars were quite clearly edited in post makes me question the legitimacy of the entire imagine...
(For anyone wondering, to get the stars to actually look like that would require a long exposure image, due to the speed OP was travelling by being in a plane the clouds below the stars should appear way more blurred.)
Either way, shopped or not, it looks damn beautiful. Nice work!
I used 2 different exposures, one for the stars and one for the foreground. I was lucky to have ultra clean windows on a brand new 737 MAX 8 and a very smooth ride. I had to take about 15 10s long exposures to get one usable for the stars. <edited> I just checked and it was 4s for the stars at ISO 6400.
Agreed. If shopped (as I assume) it should be mentioned.
I like to call that the shadow rainbow.
Just forward the engine? Perfect place to avoid the dreaded "southwest departure"
I need to get a better camera.
I don’t know why, but this reminds me of the Mr. Blue Sky cover
This kind of beauty makes me angry about all the people who take window seats and then close it and sleep
I was so excited to be in a window seat for my first trans-arctic flight to China. And then I realized open windows were a high crime because people were trying to sleep off the 13hr difference.
Caught by the wing I see. Favorite spot on the plane for me.
The perks of being a pilot
Umm... why is nobody asking about the giant archway thing in the bottom left? What the hell is that?
EDIT: Iiiiii'm dumb
"Look at me I get to fly over an ocean" well la-de-da
Thought it was an Odesza album cover from the thumbnail!
Moments like this makes me feel really warm and fuzzy...grateful...of what I have been blessed with. I'm not rich But don't go hungry...i can fly and travel.. really thankful. Thanks for sharing this
Reddit, how many miles do you think that is from point A to B in the horizon?
Looks like a Kodak ad
hahah this ain't tumblr
