Skywatch - View from the plane

These photos were taken when I travelled to Melbourne. It was a night flight but because of the time difference, it was morning in Australia. When we were about halfway in our journey we could see that half the plane was in darkness while the other half was almost bright. Cool eh! We flew over the equator. :)

The sky nearer to our windows are still in darkness while the other half we could see the sun ray. It was a wonderful experience and I think most passengers did not experienced it cause they were all snoozing away.
It was so wonderful to see the clouds below us.

Almost reaching Melbourne, we could see the land below.
For other sky watchers, you pop over to Skywatch blog.

Cool shots! Taking pictures while on the plane's one of my fav thing to do too, other than eat and watching movies and iPod and read a book and catching up with work on the PC and sleep.

Beautiful skies I love the blueness of it all! Each time I travel I want to take photos of the skies but they end up being too pale blue, this blue on the other hand is simply breathtaking, I Love it!!!
