Gulf of Aden
Posted By: darmuszka, 09-03-2015, 07:02 AM

Photo taken during night passage via Gulf of Aden - well known Piracy zone so razor wire is visible on the sides of the vessel. Any way Armed security O/B that time.
There is clearly visible plankton glow from bow wake.
Please note Jupiter and Venus at one of the closest approaches every few hundred years.

59 seconds exposure so based vessel movements and vibrations pretty clear shot.
