    When I saw that on /. all I could think was "What kind of computer would it take to view that?"

    Actually what I've read was that they took about 600 individual pictures over a longer period like an hour and it took some mega-powered computer cluster 3 days to put them all together. So if you find another clock on the picture, it might show a slightly different time.
