SkyWatch Friday: airplane, question and answer

Question: How far from me was the airplane on the photo?
Answer: About one mile.
Explanation: As You can see, the airplane belongs to hungarian
airlines WizzAir. WizzAir uses only Airbus A320 airplanes. Airbus A320 is about 37 meters long. The width of the visible area for my camera (for the zoom I used for this photo) is 10 cm in the distance 1 m. It means, that the airplane was about 1650 m from me -- slightly more than 1 mile.

I presented this photo on my blog simply named 'Zdjęcia' (photos) on Sunday... For visitors of the blog one more photo of the sky (from Sunday, it is raining today):
(For more photos of the sky look at SkyWatch Friday.)


  1. How cool is that? very very interesting. And I also love the 2nd pic of the unusual clouds, well done.
