A black and white view of the night sky I recently took from atop the dune line looking out over the shoreline of the Atlantic - Hatteras Island, North Carolina USA. Featured on NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day site: https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140920.html
This monochrome image reminds me of the 1950's sci-fi movie genre and could have been titled "It Came From Beyond the Dunes".
