My God It's Full Of Stars!
Here is my composite image based off of one of Richard McKenna's pre production artwork (above) from 2001 a space odyssey.
In the image it shows an alien tetrahedron in orbit above Jupiter with my scratch built model of the Discovery/Dragonfly parked alongside. As you can see there are stars in the stargate as described in the novel.
The tetrahedron idea was eventually rejected by Kubrick in favour for the black monolith that we are all familiar with.
Images of the model can be seen here.
