Pano Scratch Remedy

I have no clue how it happened, but I have like 1.5-2" scratch on the exterior of my pano roof. It's just deep enough for my finger nail to slightly catch on it, but only visible depending on the light conditions and viewing angle. I imagine something like this was bound to eventually happen. Anyhow, I'm thinking it can't be remedied without damaging the finish of the surrounding area, but if anyone does have a viable repair solution please let me know.

Looks like a rock, let’s hope that’s not an actual crack.

I initially feared it was a crack too. However upon further inspection it appears the difference in color is due to the depth variation of the scratch. The darker being deeper etc. Scratch is not visible from the inside of the cabin as well even when shining an LED flashlight in that area. I'll have to just keep an eye on it.
