Star Gazing over the South Atlantic Ocean

Hey IFC, here is my flight crossing over the Atlantic from Luanda-Quatro De Fevereiro heading west to Juscelino Kubitschek Intl. I wasn’t able to get as much good shots of the scenery since I am mostly flying over the Ocean. But non the less hope you like some the photos that I was able to take.

The moon is so beautiful from afar.

Here is a closer shot of the moon shining over the country of Brasil. Might use this screenshot for my profile pic or wallpaper.
