Jon Carmichael is a 32 year old professional photographer and self proclaimed “big space nerd”. For years leading up to 2017’s Total Solar Eclipse Carmichael plotted how he could capture the perfect photo of this celestial event. He purchased a ticket on Southwest airlines and with a little assistance from the flight crew – he was able to capture over 1,200 photos of the eclipse in just 2 minutes.
His photo of the total solar eclipse over the Snake River is receiving world renowned recognition and is being claimed “The Greatest Photo Ever Taken From A Plane”.
A year ago, millions came together and witnessed one of the most beautiful moments in history. My dream was to capture this from a unique view to remind us of our place in the universe and to stay united in our humanity. Thank you @Twitter for sharing that vision. #eclipse108 pic.twitter.com/AjSzf27xxQ

The final photo took over a year to edit and was recently unveiled in collaboration with @twitter
Is this truly “The Greatest Photo Ever Taken From A Plane”? We would like to invite Carmichael to take a flight into JAC on any clear day!
