Examination of the region of a small crater whose formation has been suggested to be a candidate for the flash photographed in 1953 by Stuart demonstrates that the candidate crater is not unusually fresh compared to other small craters in the vicinity. Therefore it is unlikely that the formation of this impact crater ge…
