Composite of the Great American Eclipse 2017

Location of photo
Glendo State Park, Wyoming, USA
Date/Time of photo
August 21, 2017
Canon 5D Mark II; Canon EF 24-70 1:2.8 Lens; Hoya UV filter; Homemade solar filter (from one half of a pair of Eclipse Glasses); Photix Taimi timer.
This is a composite of 20 images, taken with a home made solar filter, about 4 minutes apart, followed by a single image taken during totality with the solar filter removed. It appears a jet and its contrail have photo bombed my final image.
