Now I'm not going to be able to observe Tycho without contemplating that boulder perched on its peak...

i don't see how that boulder could be a mystery though, i would bet it was just below the surface until impact threw it in the air and it came to rest where it is no?.

I suppose the dynamics of crater formation are such that a large majority of boulders would be flung far away from the crust upheaval which causes the central peak. The experts seem to believe it's sufficiently statistically unusual to justify further research anyway.

Thanks for posting this, it's wonderful. I wonder what are the chances that boulder landed there after being ejected from a nearby crater impact site. :)

      From 60 sec long video I made a fast motion record. Huawei P10 smartphone with Celestron Nexstar 8 SE, alt-az mount, 25mm plössl eyepiece. Edited in Gif maker pro. On my phone it doesn't move, only in full screen mode. 🤔
