Alaska Airlines Solar Eclipse

We adjusted Flight #870 from Anchorage to Honolulu on March 8, 2016 just so our passengers could catch the solar eclipse from 35,000 feet

That video was wonderful to see but it was irritating to listen to the guy go on-and-on-and-on ad nauseum.

Now ladies and gentlemen if you would like to stand close to this geek we will witness first hand what is known as a Nerdgasm, please do not get too close as he is very likely to latch onto you and bore you to death talking about what he has just witnessed for the next few hours.

#4 I wonder if he's also related to Double Rainbow guy? :x At least he didn't have VVS, the shakes, or eat a magic mushroom before recording. 8-)

That video would have been beautiful, but that extremely annoying "narrator" completely ruined it :( :S

Just imagine your luck, a once in a lifetime opportunity to see a spectacle of nature and you get on the same plane as this annoying git. The one and only reason why guns should be allowed on planes. The only thing worse is being at every dinner party he goes to for the rest of his life >:)

OH common, he is just excited to see it, most of us if not all will not get a chance to see it like that. I for one, share his enthusiasm and don't mind his voice. Obviously, he also knows the subject and all stages of solar eclipse.

(i) Distances between earth, moon, sun and size of a moon and sun are just right, so that when moon is between sun and earth everything combines perfectly to produce solar eclipse.
