What we're seeing here is just a detail from this photo. You'll find an amazingly large version of that photo here.

Don't you just love pictures from space, sometimes shiny, sometimes colored, sometimes strange colored (false color IR, UV). Always a new reality. Kinda like those dopler radar pictures, is that real?
Of course, if there are new realities are there really any realities at all? Igonore that last sentence, that' one of those stupid "what is the meaning of life?" questions and I hate those.
