Crater Detection

NASA is hosting a TopCoder marathon match to detect craters in satellite images. The contest lasts about two weeks and there are $10,000 in prizes (for the top five competitors). The task is to return a list of crater positions and sizes for a set of satellite images. There is a little over a day remaining in the contest and I am currently ranked third. If I end up doing well in the final rankings I will make a blog post about the technique I used. Here are a few example images in the training set:
