An Etihad Airbus A380 flies across the sun, my view of Solar Eclipse 2017, at flight level 40,000' en route from Abu Dhabi to New York's JFK. The moon's silhouette, at left, and scattered clouds and sun spots are also seen. The sky is black due to the special solar filter in use on camera and 800mm lens.

Outstanding shot Mark. But, that's the moon itself, not its shadow.

Beautiful shot!

Not sure if he called it the shadow in the original post...but now it says silhouette...which is totally correct.

Thank you! It is a filter tape from a company called Thousand Oaks. I spread it across a cardboard box and then put the cardboard box over my lens.
