Open the pod bay doors, HAL . . .

Nocturnes Alum (and SOS Advisory Group Co-Member) Chris Rasmussen emailed me the link to this great image (seen on the APOD site - previously mentioned a few times in this space) noting that he couldn't recall ever seeing a shot quite like it. We have to agree - most of the images we've seen on the site fall into the straight-forward documentation area, or astrophotography. This one, with the longer exposure and blurring due to movement, falls right into The Nocturnes domain.
