Astra and Stella by Can-Cat Astra and Stella by Can-Cat

Astra & Stella

This was made for the August Photomanip Challenge, hosted by CRPhotomanipulation, for the theme “Playing with Fire”.

Imagine body surfing through the cosmos, on the solar winds, and gravitation tides.

Astra and Stella seem to be enjoying themselves. It looks like their slingshot off the giant planet gave them quite a ride, through the solar system.

Maybe one day humanity will grow up to play among the stars, like [Spoilers] the star child at the end of “2001: A Space Odyssey”.

Erratum: This was originally posted with the incorrect title, “Asta & Stella”.
“Asta” is a name from the Norse word for “tree”.  While “Astra” and "Stella" are from Latin for “star”.
(How embarrassing; unless, she was named for cosmic Great Tree?)
