Alien Spaceship?

No, this not a photo of a flying saucer from the 1960s, although that's the impression I was trying to create. I have actually been playing around with IrfanView, a freeware photo viewing and editing program. The object in the photo is in fact the dome on top of the observatory in Seoul Science Park in Nakseongdae. The original pre-doctored photo may be seen here. The Science Park features a number of outdoor exhibits demonstrating various scientific principles.

While on the topics of science and space, Korea's first astronaut, Yi So-yeon, returns to earth today at about 5:30 pm Seoul time after having spent the last 10 days at the International Space Station conducting scientific experiments. Let's wish her a safe return to terra firma.
