Thanks for the link. Fascinating.

Those propeller-like disturbances, though, all look alike and all lie in the same orientation. The orientation may be due to the alignment of particles in the rings, but all being essentially the same size (...?).

They look like what one might see caused by a systematic error, perhaps due to an optical artifact in the lens system, or a electronic processing error. But if they are real, what causes them is a nice mystery to think about.

At first I was going to say it is the grain pattern of the latest faux wood trim for stairs.
