Monitoring the Situation around K0921186.01

This one's called "Monitoring the Situation around K0921186.01". The idea is that most people have forgotten the history of the original Kepler mission--a space observatory orbiting the Sun in the wake of the Earth, looking into deep space for exoplanets, or if you want to be strict about it, it was looking for KOIs (KOI = Kepler Object of Interest). Long after Kepler launched from Cape Canaveral, we continue to use the "K" prefix to identify objects, and we no longer look out from our orbit around our little star, but send out our information gathering machines to distant systems and vast star nurseries on the far side of our galaxy. Painted in ArtRage5 and PSCC on a UGEE 2150 graphics monitor, about four hours. http://SaltwaterWitch.com
