Arrrghhh.... it makes my lunar pictures look a tad inferior.

I wonder what size the potato-shaped boulder is on top of the plateau?

By my reckoning (and this just taking by 1440x900 and a tape measure) @ 162m X 129m; just a bit of fun so dont quote me

This was APOD a day or two back. Amazing image.

The scale is 1.5m/pixel, so count the pixels for the rock and then multiply by 1.5 to get its size in metres.

You can access all the images via the image browser, check out this one of the whole disc.

Wow..... impressive. The peak is 2.4 km high but I would love the option to toggle an image of a human somewhere in there to give some scale.

pretty spectacular indeed... it was APOD yesterday (6th july) i was so taken by it that i searched for the original - the zoom feature on this is SO much better than the APOD site - glad you folk like it as much as i do.

Did you see yesterday's LPOD - that rock superimposed over a baseball stadium to give a sense of scale. For us in the UK it is a bit longer than a football pitch and a bit under twice the width
