Mysterious Pattern on Mercury?

The NASA Messenger probe is already sending back wonderful pictures of the planet Mercury. But check out this this going to drive the Martian Face people crazy. From Cory Doctorow's Boing Boing the next "inexplicable" image. From the Article:
  • NASA says the X is the result of two separate meteor strikes whose craters are outside the area that can be seen in this photo. When each meteor hit the surface, the force of impact threw off material that left behind its own, smaller, craters when it hit the ground.

Lol. I wonder if the face people will see space Nazis? It kind of looks like someone started to draw the swastika arms on it.

lmao, you know, I really did think the face people would love this and run with it, but I missed that all together! Thanks for the laugh
