Shown above is a capture of active sunspot regions AR13474 and AR13477, visible on the solar disk, and the transit of a commercial jet. Obviously, I was near a major airport (Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport), but sometimes knowing just where to position your equipment combined with a dash of patience pays off. Photo taken on November 1, 2023.

Photo Details: Nikon D5600 DSLR camera; Nikon 70-300mm lens.
