Introducing "Dark Shark", patrolling Cepheus and devouring complete stars with his dark nebulosity, leaving only an occasional reflection behind. Dark Shark, here spotted in Maple Bay, British Columbia, is very stealthy, taking many long looks to see any details - particularly when the "waters" are hazy. Its a good thing that this shark is 650 light years away. Note the galactic remora near its back. Just when you thought it was safe to look back up in the sky.
