Pretty cool! I like the Orbiter docked on the right, too. I’ve been away the past few days and didn’t have time to carve a pumpkin, so here’s a picture of mine from last year:

Got dorky pumpkins? Put links to ‘em in the comments!

And since I’ve got your attention, here again is my gallery of spacey, spooky astronomical objects, so that when you’re walking along outside tonight you’ll know that when you look up to the stars, they’re looking back at you! Mwuahahahahaha!
