Are you sure the "sky" is edited? A camera trained on the earths daylight side with all that cloud cover would most certainly have to use a very high shutter speed if the detail in the bright areas is to be maintained. At such a high shutter speed the fainter light of stars would not have time to register on the film/sensor.

I am not sure if you are aware, but there is probably not a single digital image for public distribution that has not been touched up in Photoshop.
Things like specs on the lens, or dead pixels on the camera, etc.

I still don't understand why they black out the sky. Is it just to hide all the satellites?
