Jesus on a bicycle, yeah come clean these windows bucko.
... The stars were suns, but so far away they were just little points of light ... The scale of the universe suddenly opened up to me. It was a kind of religious experience. There was a magnificence to it, a grandeur, a scale which has never left me. Never ever left me.

Jeez. Not exactly CDC levels of bio containment:

Almost thought that was real, but then noticed the bottom right.

I don't need to choose yet. Still hanging in there. I want to know what's out there and not be hasty. It amazes me what's out there. Bizarre stuff from both the insanely rich and insanely poor.

OK, I'm stupid: What about the bottom right? I see nothing but the effect of a standard lens..

The angle of the tree is parallel to the house. All other trees are vertical. If you zoom in, the angle of the road and cars in the background looks wrong. Looks like the photo is spliced.

Either that or the house is actually vertical and the trees in the foreground are growing at an angle.

It's San Francisco, with the camera aligned on the road, not the horizontal.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.
