    You did see there were two lines of poor focus, one horizontal the other vertical at the bottom of the crater. One thing that stands out for me is the line of dark material around the bottom of the cliffs around the crater, see that stuff?

    like a jawbreaker!

    maybe that layer's full of iridium ... at today's prices, maybe it'd be worth it!

    Nice pic, but not the Milky Way unless they've got a really fast spaceship that they're not telling us about!
