Sitting on the South Ramp as peaceful as ever as the nice moonlit clouds get blown across the island by the strong tradewinds. What caught my eye in the photo was how clear the constellation Orion came out, you can clearly see his belt (three stars lined up).

I hate to be a party pooper, but unless I'm missing it somewhere else in the photo, "Orien's Belt" is acutally an airplane's strobes and beacon over an exposure of a few seconds. But as that bears no meaning on the quality of the photo, I think it's a great photo from a neat angle
