I have been trying to capture this lunar transit for a number of years, and unexpentantly I managed to capture it tonight without any warning.
While looking at the moon at the town green in Marlborough, Ct I saw a number of aircraft flying near the moon at about 7:00pm. Just by chance I took out my camera and had it ready in case a plane did fly across the first quarter moon.
Not even 10 minutes later this jet coming out of the northwest looked like it was going to be close to a transit. When it came close I fired off three frames. This image below was the first frame I got off. The other two were just smoke trails.
