Default "...the moon was drifting between galaxies..."

Remeber Helena Russell's opening narration in "Dragon's Domain," about the moon drifting between galaxies? How's this for a visual interpretation? http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ima...31abtpmoon.jpg It's actually a composite pic by Adam Block & Tim Puckett designed to show two familiar objects (Earth's moon & M31, the Andromeda Galaxy) in the same angular scale as viewed from Earth. Details are at Astronomy Picture of the Day. http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap061228.html

Just thought this one was kind of fun!

Glad you enjoyed that!
Trust me, the real pictures at that site are way cooler than any film special effect, for the simple reason that they're real. The Universe is an amazing place!
