Mystery Glittery Photo Challenge!

Car headlight rainbow

Can you correctly/creatively name the thingamajig in this photo?

Hello pretty people!

So maybe this here “challenge” will be ridiculously easy for you all, or maybe it will take years for the correct answer to be guessed…

…but the simple fact is that I have just graded 300 hunks of paper (one essay test and one term paper from each of my 150 students) over the course of seven long days, and now everything is a bit hazy and swirly…

…so, dagnabbit, I demand now to reward myself for all that focus by finally finding an excuse to use a photo I took a few months back in Boston which I think is pretty.

There’s no story that goes with this photo… just a challenge. And the challenge is this: What is this photo of?

First Prize goes to the first correct respondent, and First Prize Part Two goes to the most creative (yet student-appropriate) interpretation!

Take it away, pumpkins.

defiantly a close up of the eye ball from Predator in NYC (there is a reflection of a man juggling 4 flaming sharknado's in his underwear in time square)

Well, first I thought it was a diamond, but after looking more closely it is a black car headlight.

I think it is a headlight of a black car. I'm not sure what car it is, though.

When I first looked at this picture on your homepage, it took my quite a while to figure it out. At first, i thought it was a shiny diamond, and when I glanced at the photo once more, I literally slapped myself for being so dense! Of Course it's the headlight of a black car. lol :P
