A member of the public managed to catch the dramatic moment on camera when a passenger jet narrowly missed the Moon. 

According to passengers on board, EZY3421 from Amsterdam Schipol to London Southend ‘suddenly banked to one side’ – the pilot apologised for the navigational error shortly afterwards. 

A spokesperson for the Civil Aviation Authority has confirmed that a full investigation is underway. It is unclear why the Airbus A320 was at the same altitude as the Earth’s lunar counterpart.
