I found this interesting picture with a technician holding a beachball on the end of a stick in the scene. See the attached picture. Any idea what it could be used for? Color correction reference perhaps? If so, why a huge ball?

Thanks in advance!

Oh no, another strange Star Trek post! This thread could last for weeks!
Sorry, no idea what the ball is for.
