    But shouldn't it look the other way round? KeyHoles are supposed to look down, 
    to Earth, unlike Hubble which looks up, to space. So the Hubble picture in the 
    comparison is "wrongly" oriented for a comparison with a Keyhole.
    The suggestion is, that the flare in the KH imagery is actually the aperture 
    door, not the bottom of the tube as the comparison suggests.
