Tie Fighter above Asteroid?

This is the latest image from Hayabusa the Japanese spacecraft orbiting the asteroid Itokawa. The spaceship caught its own shadow on the asteroid’s surface. It reminded me of a scene from Star Wars. The most interesting thing Hayabusa has found on Itokawa is a noticable lack of crators.
