A stunning photograph of northern lights seen from the International Space Station
The majestic skyline sits in its natural habitat. Gracefully waiting for a civic or golf to drive by so it can pounce on it and feed. Fending off its rival predator the supra to keep its meal for itself. Its an incredible sight to see such a beast so calm in the open. This is in fact an Alpha male as you can tell by its unique aero and war paint. Fascinating.
I stopped by SR-71A #17959 on 2/17/2014 at Air Force Armament Museum during a trip to Panama City. This Habu was retrofitted with a nine foot tail extension (shown in the bottom photograph) which housed an optical bar camera. The OBC was meant to enhance the bird’s ability to detect missile attack, but actually didn’t help much. Luckily, there was no major performance loss due to the addition.
The museum was closed due to President’s Day, but luckily the SR was outside. It was actually a blessing in disguise because I got to photograph the bird without any general public clogging the shot. The two top shots were captured with my iPhone 5s, the rest with the Canon s110.
