Windscreen scratch

As luck would have it, the wiper rubber came off during a storm and now the windscreen has a thick scratch.

Any idea what can I use to remove this?

I've heard of people using a DA and light compound for light scratches. I've also got a scratch from the windscreen wipers, but no DA to try it out.
Thought I might try just with a drill and pad and see what happens...

I think most of this comes down to using the right compound. Glass is hard. To my knowledge, it requires a dedicated cutting compound and polish.

Cerium Oxide is apparently what you use on the glass to get fine scratches and marks out.
Glass "polish" is just to remove hard water spots and imbedded dirt.
