Image?[edit]

I happened to note that this template currently features a picture of the main belt asteroid 253 Mathilde. Wouldn't it be more appropriate for the image to actually depict a centaur or a TNO? I realize that the availability of detailed images of these objects is rather limited for the time being, but surely there ought to be something we could use even if we don't want to go with an artist's impression? What about, say, this image/map of Pluto and Charon:

Or, if an artist's impression would be preferable:

Or maybe:

Or how about an actual Hubble image of a TNO:

Actually, I rather like the last one myself. It makes it clear that these are, in fact, distant objects, not something in your back yard. —Ilmari Karonen (talk) 16:51, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

No comments so far? Oh well, I tossed a coin and picked one of the above images at random. Feel free to change it. —Ilmari Karonen (talk) 14:43, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
