You're getting warm. It's a bit closer to home, though. 'Rings' is a keyword.

Maybe put on the intro theme from 'Independence Day' to get you into the right mood. The picture is courtesy from a certain space agency, indeed.

Cute! Gets you the right (ouch!) to come up with the next one... gnagna.

It's hail, Simeonie. Once was in one of them myself, we were very lucky to be able to shelter the car in time, others weren't and quite a few looked like this...just imagine the noise...

My Land Rover ended up looking like the surface of the moon. Imagine the power needed to do that!

They're almost everywhere, except a few things sticking through for convenience.
but if I show that, it'd be a dead give-away. ;)

WTF do you need THAT many fans, unless, as Dave contends, they are all working in opposition, and hence doing bugger all !

Neil you have no idea how close you were. in fact its a wax house on venus.

I took the shot while i was on holiday.I had a great time, just came back a bit burnt.
The earth in the background of this shot gives it away. :D
