My astro hobby needed a new direction and I caught both the GRS and a transit shadow. This is a charcoal sketch brought into Photoshop for coloring and shading. - j

Wow and Sweet! I'm surprised! :D

There's a nice range of approaches from all the entrants here and I can only hope to expand my abilities to cover the more subtle targets. Kudos to everyone! - j
