A very excited passenger on an Alaska Airlines flight captured video of a solar eclipse.

From 36,000 feet in the sky, the astronomer convinced the airline to delay and adjust one of its flights so passengers could see it.

One of the passengers also brought specially filtered sunglasses for everyone on board.

According to NASA the eclipse produced a 90-mile-wide total solar eclipse Tuesday night over portions of the Pacific Ocean.

Alaska Airlines says passengers were able to view the event for just under two minutes before emerging from the shadow.
