Wouldn't it be better to use a picture of the Death Start from Ep IV, from which that line actually came?

Incidentally, please see the novel Footfall, 1985, Niven and Pournelle, prolog. Either they got there 19 years ahead of NASA, or NASA is rerunning its own jokes - you make the call :-)

I chose the picture because it was clear, and looked like the moon, not because of the episode it came from. This is one of those times where you figure, "Oh, there's got to be a ton of great images of the Death Star out there", and you go look, and most of them are crapped up in some way. This one looked good.
