As a retired geophysicist, I wonder why post a satellite image that has no scale, no direction, no location and no explanation of colours in terms of surface geology. It is not a tourist photo of a cathedral or an interesting face. Shame on you NASA/USGS.

If in your mind you change the scale dramatically it could be a blue female alien visitor putting her hand on an interesting stone.
