I think you have the marker for the crater in the wrong place. Look closer to the equator, and just this side of the "dark side."

They built that damn thing again?

Eh, both craters work. I was trying to make the images seem similar, between the dark side of the moon and the unfinished section of the Death Star, luckily for me that crater sort of but not quite aligns with where the weapon would be on the Death Star.

cool but I scratch a star as the Death Star has an innie and the moon has an outie.

Yes I realize the difference in the rings one being protruding the other not, I had intended only to point out the similarity in the location of the rings, not their absolute specifics.

Try Mimas http://www.planetary.org/saturn/images/mimas_cassini_pia06258.jpg It has a huge crater that looks like the Superlaser.

Well here come to the downvotes, shame that it was only above four stars for such a short time, I'll try to think of something else YTMND worthy.

Dude, that's how ytmnd works. You got the honest people, then you got the sleezy back alley downvoters. Usually, if you wtahc with ytmnd spy, they are accounts with no created sites on them. Happened to all my sites both current and deleted which made the front page.

Ah well, when I first arrived to YTMND I too downvoted simply because I didn't like the YTMND or thought it was of poor quality, after creating a handful of my own I realize that trying to make people laugh isn't always easy, so now I give credit where it is due.

While Mimas does have a crater that more closely resembles the directed superlaser, I feel that this moon has the belt giving in the advantage in appearance, and yes I know that under any other circumstance the crater sitting on the line might be a better consideration for the weapon..if you look at it and were to rotate the moon that crater I circled would be in a better position, plus the small dark hole in the circled crater matches up with the Death Star one.

Too bad you circled the wrong spot and a ring doesn't resemble a trench very well.
September 5th, 2006

Perhaps you cannot see the crater I circled, but once again if you look and turn the moon, (use your imagination for this one folks) the crater circled aligns alot better, think of turning the moon so the circled crater matches up with the directed superlaser of the Death Star (Imagine this in 3 dimensions) yes the Death Star does have a trench but I was actually just trying to point out the similarity in appearance of the equatorial lines. Thanks for the 4 though, hell of alot better than a downvote.

The one problem though is that the crater goes through the ring.

you got 2'ed. I looked at your source, and you are wrong. This moon has a equatorial ridge, not an equatorial trench. And the crater looks like nothing on the death star. However, neptune's moon, Mimas, looks way more like the Death Star

You'll notice I called it a ring, not a trench, I made reference to the valley on the Death Star.

f*ck! we're all dead, i'm sure you all remember what happened to Aldaraan. Now if we can only find Cheney's hyperbaric chamber and destroy it while his helmet is off we'll be in better shape than we're in now...

you should ad a picture that show's it's superlaser like crater clearly to the one you already have, and maybe use the completed version of the death star

3'd because no Bothans were harmed. Why the f*ck not? You should go out of your way to harm bothans whenever the opportunity arises.
