      Please give me a clue - what did you spin to produce this cool effect?

      @kg.owl -- the camera.

      *Set for 1/8 second exposure
      *Pointed it up at some trees/sky
      *Tried to spin the body of the camera around the barrel of the lens (let me know if that doesn't make any sense)
      *Hit the shutter release during the spin. Voila!

      This one is a lot easier than the whole relative zoom thing mentioned elsewhere -- and again, not crazy long shutter speeds either -- should be OK to hand hold.

      With the blues and greens, it took on the appearance (to me) of a spinning globe, thus the title.

      I can imagine now how you did it, still I don't understand it. I'll go outside right now and try it myself.

      Sort of looks like the view you'd expect just before being abducted by aliens... :-)
