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. »

Michael Skorulski from Cigel, Slovakia

kinda weird for sure but nicely detailed and colored.

21 Sep 2008 4:13am
