Default The sky's the Limit - or is it?

Any fans of the TV show Deep Space Nine out there? I use this as my Windows wallpaper, and get some interesting comments sometimes.

Someone saw this on my laptop and asked where I got the wallpaper. When I told him I had taken the picture, his reply was that he didn't know I was an astronaut. It does tend to look a lot like it was taken from above, but I was quite grounded at the time.
I really thought the formation in the upper left center looked a lot like the wormhole opening on the Star Trek DS9 series. No aliens were seen exiting it, though.

It's even more impressive after reading your description of how you took the picture from the ground. Amazing.

Loved DS9, btw.

Amazing perspective and a lovely image without knowing you were "grounded"

I know how you did it. You had a WI-FI link with one of the people aboard the ISS who beamed the photo back to you. That had be a powerful WI-FI. People are wondering what that big dish on top of your Smart Car is for! LOL!
