A spaceship navigates interstellar cosmic dust and plasma clouds in the photograph aboveā€” or rather, a U.S. Navy ship sails the sea under a starry sky. It was taken on December 7, and the spacey effects are due to the weather not being clear.

Youā€™re looking at the aft section of the dock landing ship USS Harpers Ferryā€“a member of Boxer Amphibious Ready Groupā€“ as it prepares for night time flight operations off the coast of Southern California.
