@Rags: « ... Did you create it? »

Well, I know Marc : he is quite a creative guy.
I think I'm going to let him give an answer to this one.

THX for your visit Rags.

Super, Marc! Le bleu donne vraiment l'allure extraterrestre! Est-ce que c'est sur une toîle solaire de piscine?

A real apparition, what would it mean, a warning or a lucky message?

akarui from Kagoshima, Japan

Le bleu lui donne un look extraterrestre effectivement. Comme je vois des gouttes d'eau sur les ailes il peut s'agir d'une piscine?

20 Sep 2008 10:48pm

@akarui: Oui, comme Marc le dit plus loin, c'est sur une toîle solaire de piscine. Bien observe!

Observing from West Cheshire, United Kingdom

Yes it is extraterrestrial, it looks great. The color is superb and bubbles really make it a hit.

I think it came to earth in this http://observing.aminus3.com/image/2008-08-13.html

20 Sep 2008 11:01pm

@Observing: « ... I think it came to earth in this. »
I have seen this ship in the sky of Granby.

merci pour les commentaires. J'ai eu beaucoup de plasir a les lire. Et pour la question piège ce n'était pas un blé d'inde bleu mais bien une toile de piscine.

Michael Skorulski from Cigel, Slovakia

kinda weird for sure but nicely detailed and colored.

21 Sep 2008 4:13am

22 Sep 2008 7:50pm
