U.S. Customs and Border - Interstellar Division

South Texas - Spring 2016

 

This is a TARS surveillance blimp near the Rio Grande River. The perspective of this photo makes the aerostat appear much larger than it truly is, but when I stumbled across this initially at night I did not know that.

 

As I drove up this road for the first time, shortly after midnight, this appeared as though it were an immense rockethship prepared for interstellar travel. Truly it was a mind boggling couple of minutes until I crested the top of the hill, at which point it began to shrink as it's relative size was established against a more familiar backdrop.
