Crecent Moon Meets Full Moon

A Pakistani International Airlines Boeing 777-240/ER tail grazing the rising near full moon while on short final to runway Two-Eight at Chicago's O'hare International Airport. The Crecent Moon and star on the tail is a symbol of the Islamic faith, and actually predateds the founding of the Islamic faith en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_and_crescent

Thanks to Koz for pointing out the rising moon would intersect runway 28 traffic. It certainly was a first in a lifetime experience shooting these scenes. This was also my first time to photograph a PIA jet liner. I have seen it many times, but always while driving to/from O'hare
