    That's the nipple of a female model terminator.


    Actually, I bet it's the nose cone of one flying machine or another.

    At first, I thought it was a mushroom. Now I think it's a bullet hitting something.

    It looks like you're looking up an exhaust duct. That hole pattern is seriously looking like a combustor section though. Perhaps an afterburner flameholder of some kind?

    Haven't yet read the thread. The picture looks like a trash can or a manhole.
