Re: SF Valley -- My McMansion will be on the approaching side of Endeavour. In Mars gravity, maybe I could hit a golf ball all the way to Stu's Crater! laugh.gif

Ah yes, a shot from the Southern rim. What I meant was a a pan from the CENTER of the Valley. But you'd have to get on a tall building to see over all the other structures. Honestly though, Van Nuys is an unpleasant place to visit unless you are getting some body work done on your car or arranging a large printing job.

Nice try rolleyes.gif Phil but that's Crocodile Dundee and you must have Photoshopped him in in your photo. I hate to disagree with a senior member but here's the empirical (Aus style) proof that it was Ned Kelly in my undoctored wink.gif photo.

That's no Crocodile Dundee! A virtual Mars Bar for the first person to correctly identify the shadow in my picture.

Phil my gut reaction was that your's was a nod to Freddie Krueger but his hat was a Fedora - that shadow looks more of like an Abe Lincoln style to me but the rim is a bit weird.

Oh no, there's a strong Aussie connection. In fact, I once told an Australian woman that this person (the shadow) was my main source of information about Australia. She was very deeply offended (as I had anticipated).

What else can we do when there are no pictures from Mars?

Sherlock Holmes? What's antipodal about him?

Okay, gotta beg a hint: Is this related to a media and/or cultural figure in the UK or Canada? I'm totally at a loss here!
