DEPOE BAY, UNITED STATES
The sun is obscured by the moon during a solar eclipse as seen from an Alaska Airlines commercial jet at 40,000 feet above the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Depoe Bay, Oregon, U.S., August 21, 2017. Location coordinates for this image are 44 degrees 22.417'N 141degrees 10.154'W. Jim Urquhart: "For nearly a year a buzz had been generating about finding locations to shoot the solar eclipse from as it passed over the United States. But as the date drew closer it became clear to me that since the eclipse was going to occur so high in the sky, finding a view that gave a sense of place was going to be nearly impossible. So when I heard about an Alaskan Airlines flight that would take scientists and members of the media over the ocean I knew this was my chance. My colleague, Bethany Baker, who was shooting video for Reuters TV, and I practiced how we were going to move around each other in a cramped space shooting through a small window with a countdown clock running. At this altitude and being this far west we would have one of the shortest totality windows to work in. It was only 103 seconds. Not even two minutes. But once on the flight I had to change my seat assignment because the view was obscured by part of the wing. We got new seating arranged. It was worth it to me though because being exactly where we were over the ocean and at altitude, I would have a viewing angle that had the sun about half as high in the sky compared to everyone else on land and I was able to show the eclipse almost as if we were in space, with a horizon reference provided by the clouds below. In those fleeting moments in the shadow of the sun, high above the clouds and under a dark sky of space, I knew we were in one of the most unique environments anyone had ever witnessed an eclipse from."
