These pictures were taken from inside a Cathay Pacific flight while on my way back to Los Angeles from Hong Kong.The flight navigator showed that we were crossing the International date line.
The pictures were taken within a span of twenty minutes. See how the darkness slowly gives way to light.
“Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.” Terry Pratchett
