Here's What I Was Seeing At 9:35 Tonight
My commercial pilot rating requires 5 solo hours of night flight, which includes 10 takeoffs and landings at a tower-controlled airport. So I took off from Palo Alto and did 10 laps over at San Jose International. First time I've piloted a plane at night without an instructor aboard! Picture above is the pilot's view of the Palo Alto runway at night (not taken by me; I found it via google. Page it's from is an interesting training diary with lots of photos).
