There’s this massive zoom-enabled picture by David Bergman put together from more than 200 snapshots at the inauguration. Amazing what technology can do. Aside from easily spotting Aretha Franklin in the crowd (who could miss that hat?!), we’ve found others.

Top of the list is Obi-Wan Kenobi, in his Old Ben Kenobi drag. The former Jedi master and, later, rebel instigator was found not too far from the podium as he watched the nation’s next president take the oath. If only he’d used that Jedi mind trick to help Justice Roberts remember his lines.

If you find other crazy stuff in the picture, drop us a line in the comments.

Note: This is not actually Obi-Wan. It is just a man with a scarf over his head. And Obi-Wan is fictional. And I feel a little silly writing this explainer, but you just never know.
