I've never thought about this too much but the image always reminded me
of Hitchcock's Vertigo, (maybe anchored by Torn Curtain).

Can't you get that with the North Star, astronomer Joe Hartley?
If you point a camera at the celestial north pole (just -> <- this
far away from the north star) and open the camera for a very long exposure,
you indeed get star trails:
The back cover also resembles some spiral galaxies, like M81 in the Big Dipper:
But it also resembles rifling in a gun barrel, like you see at the start
of James Bond movies:
I also see how it could be a moon reflected in a puddle:
I'm not necessarily inclined to take anything Tom says in an interview
as hard truth. I can see him saying stuff that just pops into his head
to make things more interesting.
I wonder if we can track down Billy Lobo, who did the back cover, and get
his take on this.
