Unfortunately, the fog was coming in and out during this event. I did my best to deal with the noise, and was happy to capture it at all. Thanks to Mike Nofi for alerting me to this flyby. I have some other frames I will be looking at to see what I've got. Just wanted to post this while its new.

Thanks for looking.
