Totality! Flight intentionally delayed so passengers can see total solar eclipse

It may not be a double rainbow, but this total solar eclipse helped to make one airline passenger just as excited.

This video was taken Tuesday night aboard an Alaska Airlines flight - 36,000 feet in the sky.

Passengers were treated with a clear view of the moon passing in front of the sun casting a shadow over a remote section of the Pacific Ocean on their way from Anchorage to Honolulu.

What made this so special is the airline adjusted and intentionally delayed one of its flights by 25 minutes so the flight would perfectly coincide with the total solar eclipse.

One of the passengers even brought specially filtered sunglasses for everyone on board for safe viewing of the event.

Watch one passengers total excitement below:
