Love the pics of those "spuds" in space.

As per usual this one 2013 ET appears to be rotating with the long axis equatorial. This appears to be a signature of a rubble pile which has previously made a very close approach to a planet and has been tidally distorted into an ellipsoidal shape.

Have a nice day: Ag
