Well, first of all, it is a great shot of Orion showing Barnard's 
Loop to the left of Orion ... looks like what it says in the caption, 
a fuel dump ....

There was a similar dump from another launch in the past 10 days ... 
we had advanced notice of that one and many folks imaged that one ....

Dave Kodama is a quite capable astro-imager ... thanks for posting this!
