Epsilon Eridani b by DeathCl0ck Epsilon Eridani b by DeathCl0ck
Epsilon Eridani appears to be a young system that is still rich in circumstellar icy and rocky debris and may possibly still be undergoing the final touches of planetary formation. In 1998, astronomers first revealed the first images of huge disk-like structures of dust around the star. On August 7, 2000, astronomers announced the discovery of a Jupiter-like planet around this Sun-like star. On October 9, 2006, a team of astronomers working with the Hubble Space Telescope announced "definitive evidence" for the existence of a Jupiter-class planet around Epsilon Eridani using astrometic measurements. On October 27, 2008 at the 5th Spitzer Conference on "New Light on Young Stars: Spitzer's View of Circumstellar Disks," a team of astronomers using NASA's two infrared cameras and an infrared spectrometer on the Spitzer Space Telescope revealed evidence that the Epilson Eridani system has two asteroid belts made of rocky and metallic debris left over from the early stages of planetary formation, as well as an icier cometary belt, and two more Jupiter-class planets.

Very good, but it would've been even better if you had put the Babylon 5 station in orbit around the moon in the foreground!

I've been thinking about watching the show for a little while now. I've heard that it's a masterpiece.

It takes around a half hour on average. I can't remember how long this one took though.
