Watch An Airplane Fly Across The Moon

Some of life’s little surprises don’t reveal themselves until you find yourself shooting footage of the Moon at night with a Canon 5D Mark II attached to a huge-ass Meade Instruments LX200 telescope. It’s an airplane passing against the face of the Moon, its contrails black in the strange light. What a beautiful sight.

I've always wondered what are those smoke-like trails airplanes dispense. I heard once that it was burning of oil, or something to that effect. I believe this is similar to what those light stunt aircraft burn when performing stunts at an airshow.
