Actually, I had been in communication with the webmaster of the Star Wars
Technical Commentary (Curtis Saxton) a long time ago, and I asked him that
question. I think the answer was that the first Death Star was simply too
far away to leave lasting marks on Yavin (in fact, I, Jedi had Qui Xux
looking for debris of the Death Star, but there weren't any.) But it was a
long time ago and I don't remember too good.
