Subject: Possible Artifact On The YU55 Asteroid


NASA recently posted a video of 28 images of the YU55 asteroid.

While stepping through the images, I noticed an unexpected
feature. It could be just an artifact of the radar reflectivity,
but it's worth mentioning in case it's something more. I posted
the original image (left panel) and my minor enhancement of it
(right panel) at the following urls. The enhancement was done
using the Photoshop Gaussian filter followed by Smart Fix. The
latter "corrects overall color balance and improves shadow and
highlight detail, if necessary".

Actual size:

Double size is a bit more impressive, in my opinion:

The frame is about 19 sec into the video. The object is on the
left edge of the asteroid about half way up. It looks to me like
a pipe with a 90-degree bend after coming up out of the ground.
The resolution of the images in the video is 4 m/pixel. If it's
real, I estimate the pipe to be about 120 m long before the bend
and 30 m in diameter.
