Yes Matthias! The sacrificial heart of an brilliant alien asteroid being ripped out and shredded moments before screeching to a halt in a ground thumping crescendo accompanied with a darkening back to the cloudy, fresh, Siberian-Maritime morning...

Somehow haunted, isn't it, Doug? The hexagonal regmaglypts as well, Bernd.

Danka Matthias! This specimen has such interesting topology that it is hard to know where to begin and has no end ;-) Nice photography, kudos!
