Headlight's White Glare

The coaling tower at DeKalb, Illinois and a westbound stack train caught in the headlight glare of an approaching eastbound. I especially like the sky in this one. If you look closely near the ground in the car dump, you can see the green at the Cortland plant. Taken at 0345 on August 17th, 2006.

 

Addendum: A close friend who is an amateur astronomer looked at this and e-mailed the information (Based on time and date and location.) that the bright star in the group of three on the left is Deneb and the other bright star above and to the left is Vega. That's a bit of information I didn't count on!
