I have a couple questions though, is this image taken in visible light? Or is this taken in radar?
If this is in radar, it's possible that that "Orb" shaped object is a material that is more "reflective" than the surrounding material, and to
get an image of the whole object the strength of the radar was turned up, thus giving us this bright orb shaped object so that the rest of the
asteroid could be imaged.
If this is in visible light, it's also possible this a reflection anomaly as well. There is something there that as it rotated into the sunlight it
is reflecting more light than the rest of the surface and showing up as a bright spot on the Asteroid. How far from the sun is this object? Is it
possible that this is a mere case of contrast?
Or is it a case of an actual spherical formation on this asteroid, depending on it's origin it is possible. We see spherical formations where there
has been extreme heat followed by rapid cooling. It is then entirely possible that this same formation is possible in a much larger arrangement, the
circumstances would simply be more extreme, and rarer than the former.
Again, those saying this is two images that are the same, I'm not convinced. We lack depth perception when it comes to photographs, and it becomes
even more difficult when we are talking about large 3 dimensional objects in space. There is nothing to reference against the background as far as
movement, or shadows. Space appears black because of the camera settings, and that same contrast could hide features when they are out of the light.
Notice the apparent contour of the landscape is different in the two photographs when traced. Now keep in mind this is a 2 dimensional picture of a
three dimensional object and our eyes, and the terrain could be playing tricks on us. This object appears peanut shaped, but it could be entirely
different this is simply our perspective.
