The Lidless Eye in Space


Has Sauron gone interstellar? You'd think so from this coo-el Hubble photo of what is actually an out-of-whack ring of dust particles in orbit around Fomalhaut, a star 25 light years away. The theory seems to be that the gravitational pull of one or more planets is responsible for dragging the ring askew.

That's what astronomers say, anyhow. Who knows if they haven't already fallen under the Shadow themselves and aren't cleverly arranging for all of Earth's defenses to stand down when the Dark Lord's Nazgul-Drive(TM) Starships suddenly drop out of warp in our solar system.

Yips! to Will Collier.

Damn. That looks like something from 'the seventh sign,' you know....that movie where she gave birth to Ashton Kutcher.
