Anyone know what this is? its been moored out on Long Wharf in New Haven CT for a few weeks now.. From the Highway, I thought it was just a Barge but upon closer inspection... it appears to be some sort of floating...thing.. like a science boat or floating classroom..lol its called the Point, Counter Point II

Early morning cloudy day 6:30-ish. Too large, couldnt get it all in frame!

Ahh Haaa.. http://www.artidea.org/index.cgi/13033

its a floating Ampitheater like, stage boat thing..lol

i guess they float it up and dock it and then it opens up and they play music, Its owned by The American Wind Symphony Orchestra and I guess its been on tour from state to state along the coast. Pretty cool but Im not as excited as I was as its Symphony music and not Rock... Oh well, I learned something new today!

Looks like something from a post-apocalyptic movie. Very cool. HDR worked well there.
