French photographer Sebastien Lebrigand has seemingly done the impossible: taken an entire airplane into space and taken stellar interstellar photos of the air/spacecraft. Ok, so maybe it sounds unfeasible because its only half true. Lebrigand didn't really get a plane into space, but it sure does look like it.

Using a camera and lens specifically designed for astrophotography (pictured below), Lebrigand patiently waited for the perfect moment when planes would pass directly in front of our planet's celestial bodies. Despite being physically far away, the angle the photos are taken make it seem as if planes are literally whizzing through the stars.

A photographic feat that is truly out of this world, Lebrigand's collection is simple but wholly unique. Take a look and see for yourself.
