Commercial jetliner in sunlight flies close of moon!

Took this shot from Morro Beach at sunset. When we turned around, Mike and I noticed a plane flying close to the moon! Note the color of the plane is orangish since it was still in the sun and underexposing the moon resulted in a dark sky. Took this with a Nikon D300, 1.7 tele on my 600mm lens = effectively 1530mm. This is NOT a cropped image! I did not Photoshop anything into the image except my copyright! :-)
