- The bright "broken ring" shaped appearance of Stewart (as it shows up during high sun illumination) is very well captured in Apollo 16's panoramic ITEK-camera frame AS16-P-5158. To detect the "broken ring" like look of Stewart, scroll all the way toward the frame's right margin, until you see the typical bright ring with the somewhat cone-shaped "spout" or "nose" at the southwestern part of its rim.
