Stunning picture of a lenticular cloud (APOD)
Click on the picture for more info and links to a high resolution (3072px 2048px) image.



Purists will complain that a picture of a cloud is not astrophotography but as my buddy says, all such pictures are astrophotographs because the light came from our sun. :P You can see some of his work here.

6. There's really a UFO hidden in there
The whole thing is a vortex around the UFO, which is inside that oval shape at the bottom that looks like the spot on Jupiter. But don't be afraid--that thing just above the spot is the Flying Spaghetti Monster looking out for us. They use the "spot on Jupiter" thingie for camouflage; one of them told me that at a bar the other night--they're very smart but they can't hold their liquor--she told me lots of weird stuff after I got her drunk.
