What a heartbreak that this once in a lifetime event could only be captured in a shaky hand held 464x352 thumbnail video.

I dunno I thought it was awesome.

I've taken some pretty shaky footage of erupting volcanoes over Iceland and just been happy I had a camera.

Plus, the speed of the aircraft combined with the relative speed of the umbra gave us a spectacular finish, no?

Gotta bookmark this one.
