Answer: This is a thermal image of a polished diamond plate, steel ramp that is facing skyward. It is very low emissivity, and thus highly reflective to infrared energy. Part of the plate is reflecting the cold sky, while the other part is reflecting the much warmer back of the trailer into which it leads. “Fascinating.” Yes… we know… we are infrared geeks.

    Perhaps I should have used pure Logic!.. very good image and it suggested a lot of other things , so you got me! even if there was a hint of romulan deception.
