Heavenly Body of the Week: Yavin IV

Moradmin Bast: "We've analyzed their attack, sir, and there is a danger. Should I have your ship standing by?"

Grand Moff Tarkin: "Evacuate? In our moment of triumph? I think you overestimate their chances."

Yeah, how'd that work out for ya? Here is a shot of the red giant planet known as Yavin, viewed from the jungle moon of Yavin IV, where the Rebel Alliance had their base at one point. For those woefully unaware of Star Wars lore, Yavin IV is the moon to which those damn Imperial bastards were trying to blows all up with their Death Star, when Luke, with the last minute assistance of Han and Chewie in the Millennium Falcon, destroyed the fuck out of said Death Star. "Great shot kid. That was one in a million." - Han Solo
