Yooz got two options:
1) Polish through the anodize to remove the scratch. Do it yourself, with a wheel and white polishing rouge (ideal for aluminum - there are seeral different types) and it shouldn't be that hard -or- take it to a metal polisher who shouldn't charge you more than $10 and it will look terrific
2) Have the anodize stripped, then have the part polshed to remove the scratch, then have it re-annodized. This should set you back at least $100
Remember, anodizing is really thin. maybe a .003 of an inch, tops. Your scratch, though it may look to be only in that thin layer, probably made it to the un-oxidized material underneath.
