Solar eclipse as seen from an airplaneAstronomical events such as lunar and solar eclipses can be quite exciting to watch.

Watching one of these events from an airplane makes it even more special, and is quite possibly the most beautiful view that you can get.

This guy was on Alaska Airlines Flight #870 from Anchorage to Honolulu on March 8, 2016 when the airline decided to adjust the flight path so that the passengers could catch the solar eclipse from 35,000 feet.

His excitement is obvious in his commentary as the plane enters and travels through the shadow of the moon. Make sure you watch this with the sound on.
