I got another bite of the render bug. I originally visualized this angle with a Miranda-class ship, but I don't have a modern Miranda that'll hold up to this kind of proximity and detail. While I was assembling the scene, I found I'd already had one from soon after I did the night version of "Comparing Notes," but I hadn't been able to settle on a good angle. So I loaded in the old scene, aligned it to fit the picture in my head, added a bunch more spotlights, and rendered it.

The background is from NASA's library of astronaut photos of Earth. It's actually a shot of the terminator. I desaturated it and then recolored it dark blue to represent a barely-visible nightside. Also, since I figured a night shot would require a longer exposure, I cranked up the motion blur well past 100%, so the various shuttlecraft that are buzzing around are barely-defined blurs.
