Sky Watch from 30,000 feet

Sky Watch over Atlantic Ocean from plane

Whenever I fly I try to get a window seat.  May be crazy considering I usually opt to fly at night and sleep as much as possible.  But if there’s a view I like to take photos.  This wasn’t so easy with the first leg of my journey on a red-eye from Phoenix to New York.

But leaving JFK in the late afternoon provided some excellent views of what I believe is New York City.

Never explored there so can’t be 100% sure.  Please let me know if you’re familiar with the area.

Sky Watch sunrise over Africa

After a late dinner it was lights out and the darkness outside was palpable.  Yet morning finally came somewhere over Africa.

      I think the tinted windows enhanced the blue because I didn’t.

      Have rechanged another setting on comments so hopefully solved the problem. Thank you for pointing it out.

      Thanks Alex. So fun to see the Earth from a different perspective. Took a couple days to recover from the long flights, both ways.

    I prefer the aisle seat cause I can kinda create more space for myself by leaning into the aisle although I love the view from the window seat. Hard choice. I see you flew SAA.
