The Imaging Source DMK31AU03.as CCD Camera at Prime focus of my Lunt Solar Systems LS60THa w/B1200 & 0.5 Focal Reducer, mounted piggyback on my Losmandy G-11 and mounted inside my Skyshed POD


I was shooting the Solar Disk with Sunsot Groups AR1528, 1529, 1530, 1532, 1533 and 1534 when a jet roared across the disk. I knew seeing was good that day, but didn't realize how good untiul the jet passed by WITHOUT leaving a contrail. The atmosphere was so dry it immediately absorbed the moisture from the jet exhaust leaving no trail.
