Plane shadows

The first time I saw it, freaked out I was.

Then I didn’t see it again for a year or two, now I look for it all the time. Seeing it makes me freak out inside like the double rainbow guy, I have no idea why, but my psychologist said it’s completely normal-ish.

When the airplane, in today’s case Air Canucks, is roughly five minutes from landing, and the time of day is just right that the sun is in position and you’re sitting on the right side of the plane, which today was the left side of the plane, a rad shadow of said airplane can be seen. It starts as this small spec, one blazing its way through homes, lakes, fields, baseball diamonds, you name it, and slowly grows as you descend. It’s quite the transformation, as you’ll see below, it’s almost as if the aircraft is a mogwai and it’s been fed after midnight.

Check it out! (give it a few seconds to load…)

Warning: DO try this on your next flight. It sounds incredibly dorky, I get that, most of the things I do fall under that category, but you’ll see what I’m talking about.




















I hope you’re as impressed as I was, but am guessing you are not.

On to the Canucks. It was a relatively quiet flight, didn’t see too much of anyone except for when I ran into Cory Schneider at the Bin of Sin (where the yumminess is stored). He said he was having a pretty decent birthday, although the gifts weren’t exactly pouring in from teammates. Then I remembered to wish him a happy birthday and it wasn’t awkward at all. Jory strikes again!

It’s crazy nice in Minnesota, as you can see. The sun was shining and it was hot when we landed, so I can’t wait to get into my hotel room and write this blog and do a Behind the Lens gallery just in time to get outside and see that the sun has already set! Cha-ching!

Have a great night. Bring your A-game tomorrow, it’s game day.
