  1. Is there anything on what we think it is? Volcanic activity maybe?

    It would be cool if it’s some type of bioluminescent space bacteria or fungus. Probably isn’t, but that would be cool.

  2. Presumably this is just brightly colored or metallic rock uncovered or left behind by the impact that caused that crater, no?

  3. Please, just once, can it be a crashed spaceship? I mean I know it’s not, but I just finished 10 seasons of SG-1 and my mind is in a weird place.

  4. It looks like a highly reflective element or mineral stuck to the surface of Cerces from a collision with an asteroid
