Looks like the dark floor of a crater maybe.

Very interesting Jules, and I have a question about terrain too.  Are those sinuous channels or something else.  ???  Maybe old lava flows?

Edge of ejecta from a fresh white crater maybe.

What would be nice for these pictures is a map of the Moon with grid markings on it so we could say where the picture was, e.g. square D6

We would need to post a standard picture with grid markings for everyone to refer to.

But maybe we should wait until we see how favourites will be handled in the next release - it may have some method we could use.

This area has a lot of "cross hatching" on the surface:

The minimum crater sizes that can be drawn at each level are:

High Zoom = 10m
Med Zoom  = 40m
Low zoom   = 84m

I'm getting used to the different levels of zoom and using these measurements as a way to find a general scale.
: Re: Interesting terrain
: Geoff April 28, 2010, 12:48:53 PM
Thanks for posting the crater size range Tommy  :)

It would be good if you could come up with something to make it easier for beginners to get a grasp of the scale of what they're looking at.

If we could have an image of an old-fashioned Volkswagen Beetle at the bottom of the image as it would look if it was parked on the surface, this would give a good indication of the size of what we're looking at  :D
We do need something to give us a sense of the size of things.

It would also be nice to have the zoom level at the bottom of the image, e.g. Z1, Z2 or Z3.

Wow, there are some beautiful and interesting images being posted here!

It's been difficult to get the images at the poles to look right.  Because the lighting angle is always so low they have huge shadows.  We try to remove image cut outs that are mostly shadow, but some completely blank images seem to have got through.  Just submit the image without marking anything for now.  We may add a 'bad image' button in future, or improve the removal of bad images to minimise their appearance.

Hi Nikola - welcome to Moon Zoo! :) Hope you like the project.

It's quite useful if you can add the link or reference number to your pictures. You can also search using the link or number to see if your image has been posted before. Posting the details also makes it easier for the team to identify the image if it's one they want to follow up. For your image it's
http://moonzoo.s3.amazonaws.com/v10/slices/000111426.jpg   (and it hasn't been posted before!)

As for what it is....well I see a very faint eroded ring around it containing some newer impacts so I'm thinking it is the rocky bottom of an old crater.
But I could be wrong! :)

: Thomas J May 12, 2010, 05:37:04 PM
Welcome to Moon Zoo, Nicola S.

I agree with Jules, the bottom of an older crater strewn with rocks. It's an interesting image and I haven't seen many quite like this one. Thanks for posting.  :)

Wow, lots of interesting images here. I hardly know where to get started.

A few questions:

Does anyone know if there is any way to use the My Moon Zoo feature to see the location and relation to Clementine data for the images that are being discussed (when it's not your image and so isn't in your My Moon Zoo already)? Context is soo important in image interpretation, so any little bit would be helpful.

The minimum crater sizes that can be drawn at each level are:
  High Zoom = 10m
  Med Zoom  = 40m
  Low zoom   = 84m
I'm getting used to the different levels of zoom and using these measurements as a way to find a general scale.
Thomas, how do you know what the zoom level of each image is. I can't find that information given anywhere. Do you just estimate from the level of detail you can see? That can be dangerous since craters can look the same regardless of their scale....

It is sooo hard to tell without context, but I am wondering if this isn't a bunch of impact melt ponds.

I'm wondering if this is mass wasting on the slopes of a big steep crater slope? Loose particles "flowing" downhill due to gravity can behave very much like a fluid....

Edge of ejecta from a fresh white crater maybe.
(http://moonzoo.s3.amazonaws.com/v8/slices/000011943.jpg)

I'm guessing we are looking down slope from the rim of a crater. The darker part is the outside of the crater. The lighter part is the slope into the crater; you can see streaks where material has moved down slope towards the upper left corner of the image. This constant down slope movement keeps the material on the slopes fresher, and therefore brighter, than the outside of the crater (which is clearly more weathered and contains numerous smaller craters).

At the moment there is no facility to do this but I'll put copy your question over to the Team Area (an area on the forum where the Team will look first) as other lunar scientists might find this relevant. The (initial at least) aim of Moon Zoo is to allow interested non-scientists to become involved in useful lunar research without any need to think about context or scale but as we have seen with Galaxy Zoo it is not long before both amateurs and professionals are asking deeper questions! It's early days yet and I'm sure features will be added as the project develops but I think it's useful for the Moon Zoo science team to know now how people are thinking of using the project.

Thank you so much for the excerpt from the case paper Thomas. I wasn't thinking that you had estimated the minimum crater diameters at each zoom level - those numbers seemed far too specific to be estimates (so sorry if I wasn't clear on that). I was wondering if we, the image viewers, are expected to estimate which zoom level we are looking at, since that information is not given. I guess the short answer is yes, but it doesn't really matter for the purpose of the tasks we're given. ;)

To me, this looks like a wrinkle ridge on a mare. These are thought to be caused by compression due to subsidence from the weight of the lava fill.

Think of taking a stiff foam flutter board (like you use for swim training) and bending it. You will see wrinkles in the bottom of the U in your bend. These are kind of like that.

The really strange part, though, is that this area is not in a large mare, where you would expect the weight of the mare to causing this kind of bending. Here we are in a lava channel (Vallis Alpes) that connects Mare Imbrium and Mare Frigoris. Very interesting...

This is in a mare area (border of Mare Serenitatis and Mare Tranquillitatis), so mare wrinkle ridges are reasonable.
But check out that diagonal linear feature, running from the upper middle to the lower left. I think that's a crater chain.

Yes, Weezerd and Jules, that is a tough question.
In my experience, things like that are crater chains. But then, my experience has never been at a resolution where boulders are even possible. What do crater chains really look like at this high resolution? How do they differ from boulder tracks? I'm not sure if anyone has really thought about this. If they have, I sure hope they share their experience with us....

Thornius, how are you saving photos from Boulder Wars?  I don't see any favorite button and the flash program will not let me save the image with Windows XP. Perhaps Vista or Windows 7 lets you do it.

Hi Tom

Both images from Boulder Wars are saved to your "Recents" list. Go to "My Moon Zoo" and look at the last few images in the Recent list on the right-hand side.

Thornius, how are you saving photos from Boulder Wars?  I don't see any favorite button and the flash program will not let me save the image with Windows XP. Perhaps Vista or Windows 7 lets you do it.

If I am on Boulder Wars I use Screen Capture.  Hold down CTRL and press PRINT SCREEN/SYS RQ.  Then pull up Paint function, hit Edit and then Paste.  Bam there is the picture of your screen.  You can then clip and resize the parts you want, save them on your computer, and repost them here.

Those dark parallel lines look like scratches caused by glaciation on EARTH, to me.  I don't know what forces could be at work on the Moon but possibly something similar?

I checked this area using the LROC browser and your image is from the western edge of Aristarchus crater, quite interesting morphology around there with all the upheaval when the crater was formed.

Hi Nadando and welcome to Moon Zoo.

The pattern on the bottom left looks like half a crater to me and probably what is called a "Bench" crater.

Hi all!
This is my first post here, so I'd like some feedback on an interesting image I found.
The image is here:

# Sun Angle: -75.35°
# Scale: 4.18 meters / pixel

Seems like a very "bouldery" area with lots of linear features; it's arguably one of the richest images I stumbled upon.
By the way, is there a method to check just how many images I parsed? i guess a couple hundreds but maybe my counting is off :)
...and how do I embed the image? Or do I need to save, then attach it?

The area at the top left is inside Hyginus crater and the white area shows the edge of the crater. This area is one of the few places on the moon where they suspect active volcanism occurred. I will try to find your area on the Hyginus map I have.

Another strange backward "S" feature in the upper left.  Perhaps we should start a "Lunar Alphabet" section?

Or perhaps its a Lunar, "Yin Yang"?

It does look like a Yin-Yang symbol, Thormius ;)
But, I think it's just a trick of the light, caused by the placement of two smaller craters on or near the rim of the larger crater.

The lines are going away from a crater. Maybe they are boulder tracks going downhill, but they look different in this lighting.
And the bumps are eroded craters?

: Re: Interesting terrain

It might just be because I've been staring at it too long (even with 3D glasses, which seem to help sometimes but not this time), but it almost looks to me like the part of the half in the foreground could be a little pit and the part behind it might be a large boulder.  There doesn't seem to be any craters to check for shadow effect, so I don't know.  The one other large boulder showing a shadow is slightly different.  Geoff's answer makes sense.  The longer I stare at it the more I can see the outline of the rest of the crater.

OK, look carefully at the top half of the picture (which seemed brighter when I was classifying)...
If this was Earth (famous last words) I'd say it was the shore of a dried-up lake, with wave patterns in the flat area in the whole upper right quadrant, and rocks deposited (sorted by size, I think) on the ancient shore, in the center and off to the left.  :o
Any guesses? A glacier moraine, perchance? ;)

I checked this on the the LROC WMS map (I may have to use that more often) and it looks like this feature is in the bottom of a deep crater - one that was hit so hard that it created a bench or a...what's the word? Mound?

Still...an intriguing image.

Sorry for the large post, but I couldn't resist just this once. These images came from one strip - I started with the bottom section, which came to me to classify. (They stitched together pretty well, considering that I didn't really try very hard.) ;)

Well, I would have thought from the rays and the distribution of boulders that this was created from a rather explosive impact. But, the image as far as I can discern (without 3D vision) is of a totally flat surface. So how could all of the energy which would have been needed to translate a large rock into this cacophony of shrapnel have managed to not transfer anything into the impactee, i.e., the surface at that point?

Yet again I am bemused by this wondrous terrain.....

I was interested enough to go look. If you zoom in on the bright white crater about a third of the way from the top of this strip M106468527RE (http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M106468527RE) you will see your crater under different lighting conditions and it does look like a normal crater. However, it is illuminated from the right so you might have to stand on your head for the brain to see it as a dip.

Amazing image Aliko. I think you are looking at an impact melt sheet on the rim of a crater. The cracks, as Jules suggests, were likely formed when the melt sheet cooled.
: Re: Interesting terrain

This area is close to huge fresh white crater, so I thought those structures were caused by the impact. But they look just like river beds.

On the understanding that there will be a rather large crater off the top right corner of this slice,
I find it quite interesting that there appears to be a concentric shock-wave effect emanating from it and embedded in the surface rock. Is this commonly noticed?

Other opinions may also be available.

Hi Geoff.

Are you referring to the big mound that takes up the right side of this image?

If so, it's probably part of the central peak/ring/terrace complex. This image is from the floor of Aristarchus crater, which is a relatively fresh terraced crater with a central peak. In the LROC images, you see similar types of mounds on the other side of the central peak. So, it's possible that this is part of a nascent central peak ring or the remnants of a terrace block. In any case, this is a really interesting crater because of it's complexity and young age. Definitely worth much more study....
: Re: Interesting terrain
: Geoff June 17, 2010, 04:09:46 PM
Thanks for the response Irene.

I wasn't sure what it was - looked like part of a ring but a lot of it is missing. That crater is worth exploring, lots of odd terrain!

Thanks Weezerd.

I've looked at this image, and some lower resolution images in the same area, and Wow!!

This isnt' a crater with a melt deposit around it. It's actually in the slopes of a very large linear rille (with what looks like a sinuous rille/collapsed lava tube running through the middle of it).  Check out the lower resolution LROC image of the area here (http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M102142311LE).  You can see a very small segment of the main rille running across the upper middle of the strip (taking up about a sixth of the image height). The original image that Weezerd showed comes from the northern slope of this rille, which is all in shadow in the lower resolution LROC image.

In any case, there are no craters large enough and close enough for their melt to have draped all these features, so I don't think this is a melt deposit. Also, it shouldn't be lava flows, since I would have expected those to have either flooded the rille more or been fractured by the rille, depending on which came first. It may be that these patterns were caused by shaking of loose regolith, due to some nearby, recent impact. More work definitely needs to be done on this.

This image appears to be from the rim of an impact crater. Looking around the rest of the crater, in LROC images, it seems that you have an impact melt deposit that has subsequently cracked and broken up. In places around the crater rim, you can see places where blocks of the melt have slid down slope. I think this may be what is happening in the image here, too.

That, I believe, is a sinuous rille. There are lots of linear tectonic rilles in this area, but this particular one, I think, is a volcanic sinuous rille.  They are formed when hot, runny lava carves a channel out of older solidified lava (like a river eroding the rock it flows through).

Anyone have theories about this?  Is it possible it's just a massive shadow, possibly due to topographical conditions that aren't necessarily obvious in 2-D black and white?  Because it seems like the blackness comes far out of the crater area and includes a pretty large chunk of Moon here.  I still don't really understand dark haloed craters so maybe this is one.  I wouldn't know.  Doesn't seem anything like the only one of those I found, though.

Hey, welcome, GaussJordan. 

Jules: Yes, I've noticed the extra bracket, but I'm not sure what to do.  I'm trying to make the strips be links, so you can click on the strip in my message and bring it up.  Which you can, because I'm nesting the image inside URL tags, but I can't figure out how to do that without the bracket showing.  The thing is I'm not familiar enough with systems around here to know if you even need me to do that, or if you can just bring up the strip easily by having the number.

I went exploring on this strip http://moonzoo.s3.amazonaws.com/v10/images/M111402223LE_3.jpg (http://moonzoo.s3.amazonaws.com/v10/images/M111402223LE_3.jpg) and, just a few clicks away from the pair of images above, I found this.  I'm not even a teensy bit excited because I know it's almost certainly a boulder, but the dark spot and the overall shape really are intriguing.  It sure doesn't look like it crashed there (no disturbed regolith), and it has an under-shadow unlike anything seen on the other boulders.  Thoughts?

Hey, welcome, GaussJordan. 

Jules: Yes, I've noticed the extra bracket, but I'm not sure what to do.  I'm trying to make the strips be links, so you can click on the strip in my message and bring it up.  Which you can, because I'm nesting the image inside URL tags, but I can't figure out how to do that without the bracket showing.  The thing is I'm not familiar enough with systems around here to know if you even need me to do that, or if you can just bring up the strip easily by having the number.
If you post the AMZ number anyone can plug it into a My Moon Zoo more information screen. Just replace one of your own AMZ refs with any other and hit "return" to see the image and strip in question. That might save you a bit of work. :)

Hi Els

It looks a bit like a crater chain between the large crater on the left edge and the crater in the centre.

Any crater chain experts want to chime in?
: Re: Interesting terrain
: DJ_59 June 26, 2010, 10:26:59 PM

I don't know of a way to recenter things, though I wish for it all the time.  If the strip allows you to take a step to one side (meaning if you're not already on the edge of the strip), I'd copy both images and paste them together for a good look.  I do that a lot.  Sometimes you really need to see it like that for the story to settle in your mind.

That image has come up a few times - and I'm sure someone gave a possible cause for its appearance. Hang on and I'll go look.

EDIT - OK apparently not! Could it be part of an impact melt flow that just happened to cool and crack into a X?
: Re: Interesting terrain
: IreneAnt July 05, 2010, 05:12:43 PM
Yes, I definitely think it's a fractured impact melt around the rim of a decent-sized crater. There are lots of fractures in the area, running somewhat parallel to the crater rim. In some cases, you get more than one set of fractures, making a big jumble. It just somehow happened that in this particular place, only the two fractures occurred, making a really cool-looking X.

Definitely different than the normal scene.  I love the almost parquet look of the surface there, Tom.

Here's one I just ran into, and the more I stepped through frames the more I realized it should be seen at zoom 1, so this is most of the bottom half of the strip located here:http://moonzoo.s3.amazonaws.com/v10/images/M102092779RE_3.jpg (http://moonzoo.s3.amazonaws.com/v10/images/M102092779RE_3.jpg)

The mound between frames 1 and 2 is 2,382 meters across.  Which is very close to a mile and a half.
This terrain seems to have a lot to see.  I don't know the difference between collapsed lava tubes and what is just a channel yet, but my first instinct is these are lava tubes, though I wouldn't be surprised to learn the larger ones lower down are full fledged channels (and a few ridges).  Anyone know? 

Sorry for the multi-image.  I don't know if that causes extra server load, but since it's just referencing files already on the server I'm hoping it doesn't.  It just seemed the best way to see this.

That's a great image, DJ, I absolutely love the mound, so stricking. I would agree that the linear features near the top of this image are probably lava tubes. Further down I would say there are more ridges than tubes.

Thomas  :)

It is a fabulous image, DJ!  Those lower features look distinctly channel-like to me...are there other processes on the moon besides vulcanism that would have formed large winding channels? Especially considering that they are in an area with those rilles ( ;) our glossary-speak for lava tubes), I would be surprised if they were not associated with lava flow. However, I have been wrong before :-\

Anyone else have thoughts? I'd love to see the whole area...I'm off to do some digging...

Now this is puzzling!
I thought in the centre there might be a crater chain, moving across the image from centre towards the right, four or so similar small craters.
Then my eye was captured by the anomaly down the right edge of the image. There is a whole smattering of very small craters/mounds. Well, if you believe the shadow pattern of the majority of craters in this image, then they must be mounds....but what on moon could have created such a plethora of small mounds like that...I mean, there must be a dozen or more?? Or will somebody deflate me and say they look just like boulders?

It's definitely interesting, though.  One of the many things that make us go "hmmm..."

I found this area interesting for a number of reasons.  It has a little bit of everything.  And the large round area in the upper right... I assumed it was a crater, but maybe it's an oddly shaped mound (with a most interesting pattern on the top).  Also a candidate for X Marks The Spot or whatever we call that topic.

Yes, that is a beautiful impact melt pond just off the rim of Aristarchus crater. On the full LROC image (http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M102464936RE), you can see how the melt has flowed off the ejecta (from the upper left) and into this particular pond. Great find!

Some extremely interesting pics in here. 

Here's one at zoom 1 that shows something I'm not sure of.  Is that a rille?  A wrinke-ridge?  Lava tubes?  Sinuous channel?  I love these features but I haven't got them pegged yet at all.

If you follow this feature along in the LROC strip (http://www.moonzoo.org/examine/AMZ300006l (http://www.moonzoo.org/examine/AMZ300006l)), you can see that this is a flow front. Basically, it's where something liquid stopped flowing and froze in place, leaving a "cliff" face. To the north of this image, the flow front is simple and easy to recognize. In this image, the flow front was a bit more complex, apparently having experienced some turbulence, which resulted in this more convoluted feature.

I have been exploring Aristarchus crater and found a strange linear feature:

Two almost straight lines forming a right angle!

Someone interesting (and rather pretty), fine dark streaking, running from upper-left to lower-right in this picture.  Not much of anything else but I thought the streking was unusual.

I believe you are exactly right, Merkosh.  That does look like a low-angle impact from thr right.  Our Astronomers here are interested in those.  Good job!

Right to that, a hollow or crater with a central mound which has a centered crater! :o

At first I thought I'd never had this strip before, but it turns out I just hadn't explored it beyond the first image I found there, which is one I posted in B&W as the lunar version of Van Gogh's Starry Night.  That was just above this, as it turns out.  This is a very dramatic and strange area.  This is zoom 1, so far, far away.  It reminds me of the debris field between the two halves of Titanic.  Kind of a beautiful chaos.

Interesting image Tom, wonder if it's a deformed crater chain?
: Re: Interesting terrain
: astrostu August 13, 2010, 02:11:54 PM
Looks like it could be a crater chain from a broken impactor, a chain from secondaries (less likely because the usual morphology you see isn't there), or pit craters (endogenic craters that form by collapse of the surface into a vacated lava tube).  Hard to tell without a broader context, though at the moment I would guess pit craters.
: Re: Interesting terrain
: Tom128 August 13, 2010, 08:55:37 PM
Hi Geoff and Astrostu,

This is all very interesting.

I like the collapsed lava tube hypothesis since I recently visited some in Hawaii  :)  The NAC photo strip is loaded with formations that indicate lava flow.  Didn't see anything on the strip quite like the items we are looking at.  For fun, I thought that I would add some similarities to the lava tube that hosts the Marius Hills Lava Tube Sky Light Geoff showed us for the TLP sky light thread.

(http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad261/Tom128128/skylightqqq.gif)
The lava tube above is somewhat similar to the the larger formation that these targets of interest rest upon.

If you zoom out a little on the photo strip it appears that the items are on top of some type of elongated raised surface (perhaps a  lava tube).  Items are located a little over half way up on the left of the strip.

http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M102092779RE (http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M102092779RE)

Here is another NAC photo at a higher altitude that shows the possible lava tube formation with items of interest at the top.  There also seems to be some type of channel to the right of the lava tube-like formation.

: astrostu August 15, 2010, 05:46:07 AM
That is an interesting one.  At first glance, I'd say that you are just looking at a ghost crater (almost completely buried).  However, it doesn't seem as though the topography supports that ... it looks like the would-be rim outline is actually a trough.  I have seen this occasionally with ghost craters on Mars where the actual topographic data (from MOLA) does show it to be a crater and the rim's just weird.  We need LOLA data!!
: Re: Interesting terrain
: Tom128 August 15, 2010, 04:30:54 PM
Hello Astrostu,

A crater that has possibly been refilled with material.  Now that is very interesting.  I was also wondering if the nearby impact somehow destabilized an already weakened adjacent area - an interior cavity formed previously by hot gas, etc.

FYI, the current thinking is that lunar magma doesn't have enough volatiles to create large gas bubbles, and certainly nothing this size.

Hi Irene,

Good to know  :)  The one sky light that Geoff shared is pretty large with no external lava tube formation to look at.  Not sure what dimensions the item in question is in comparison.  Do you think it is a ghost crater or something else?
: Re: Interesting terrain
: astrostu August 18, 2010, 07:04:11 PM
Tom, I found an example on Mars, though the modification history of this kind of crater on Mars could be very different from on the moon (as in water- or air-based), but it gets the idea across (and shows what topography data can do!).  In the image, the color is white/purple low, blue/green/yellow high.  The apparent rim of this crater is inverted, as in it is lower than the floor or the surrounding surface ... that is, at least the apparent rim today.
: Re: Interesting terrain
: Tom128 August 19, 2010, 12:29:24 AM
Hi Astrostu,

Very interesting photo of the ghost crater.  Thanks for posting it. The apparent rim around this circular lunar formation makes it very interesting. Like you said, topography data like in your photograph would be wonderful to see in this instance for more clues.

Hi Tom,

I'm not sure what this is. As Astrostu pointed out, the topography seems off for a ghost crater. Also, the Mars example Astrostu posted looks like it was formed predominantly by erosive processes that wouldn't be found on the Moon. So, it's not clear what this is.

I do have two possible guesses:
1) It's an older crater that was flooded with lava. The vent was inside the crater, so that the lava overflowed the crater walls. This flooding would have had to happen before the younger crater beside it was formed, or the younger crater would have been flooded too (the place where the rims overlap would be a low point allowing for lava to spill over). The problem is that I don't see any evidence of this earlier crater and flooding in the walls and topography of the younger crater, which should have been affected by this kind of activity.
2) This is effectively a lava dome, formed from a more viscous lava that didn't flow so well and so formed a pancake-like dome.The problem here is that these types of things are quite rare on the Moon, so scientists are very slow to suggest that as a solution.

Clearly, this is something that we need to look at in more detail...

Not sure about that one, Elizabeth.  It's possible, if very improbable, but I see what you're talking about.  And we have caught avalanches occurring on Mars (like the one below).  But it could just be some fresh regolith on the sun-side of that boulder.  Be interesting to see what others think.

One of my favourite ones so far (apart from Ina) and so clear - boulder trails from the crater but into it to - very odd - and ?a crater chain top right, also a valley running nearly top left downwards at about 5 o'clock angle....

This looks like the high rim of a large crater. If you look at the centre of the image you can see a shape like a sign wave crossing the ridge this could posibly be due to a slump in the crater walls causing a slide in eather side. :)

Wow, this is neat, ElizabethB

If you look at this area in the LROC WMS Image map, you can see that there is a bright fresh crater just to the left of this LROC strip. I think that fresh crater's ejecta is responsible for a whole bunch of interesting features here.

That is a great image of melt from Aristarchus crater! It's cracking because it is right on the rim; the part that is below the rim wants to slide down into the crater and so is pulling away from the stable part that is perched atop the rim.

Looking look at the LROC image, ElizabethB, I think I see boulders. It's just that the LROC image is so dark, that when MoonZoo brightened it up (to make it easier to see everything else), the contrast between the boulders and the surrounding terrain was lost. That's why the black dots look like they're floating on the MoonZoo image.

I hope that helps.

Great image,  Geoff.

I think this is the ropy ejecta of Aristarchus flooded with subsequent lava. Often, the lava will cover an area and then "deflate" as it cools, revealing underlying topography. I think this may be what's happening here.

This is from the collapsed walls of Aristarchus. I am wondering if what we're seeing here is some layering from the pre-impact stratigraphy. Really neat, Geoff!

This is an impact melt pond that is draining downslope on Aristarchus crater's ejecta. Really nice find, Claymore!

Lake is a good description, Claymore. A basalt flood that would have have been liquid at one time.

Good guess, ThomasJ, but this is from the slopes of Proclus craters. What we're seeing here is material flowing downslope after emplacement, not pooling in a flat area. It's true that this could be an impact melt, frozen in the act of flowing down hill. But I think it's more likely solid ejecta that flowed downslope (the way dry sand does when you "pour" it from your hand).

Not a 100% sure, because the resolution is limited, but I think it's just a bunch of impact craters bunched together (not necessarily all the same age, though).

Hi Thomas sorry there was no image have been having problems but hopfully solved now.
This looks like the high rim of a large crater. If you look at the centre of the image you can see a shape like a sign wave crossing the ridge this could be due to a slump in the crater walls causing a slide in eather side. :)

Hi Els,

Looks like a small fresh white crater inside a much larger eroded crater.  Quite an intriguing photo! 

Wonder if being inside the larger crater will act as an erosion shield keeping this fresh white crater brighter over the longer term than its contemporaries in the surrounding area?

Posted these two black items on the spacecraft thread a while back and they are on the same photo strip. Not sure what they are:

Very interesting, Claymore. That is on the slopes of Proclus crater. There is some very interesting downslope movement of material happening here, quite unlike what you expect from unconsolidated sand-sized grains. If you look around the LROC image (http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M113649971LE), you can see evidence of cracking near the crater rim, suggesting this area was splashed by impact melt. I am wondering if a thin veneer of impact melt may have made the material here behave this way, causing large thin blocks to move together crating this unique pattern.

Hi sergsh and welcome to Moon Zoo.

This is inside Kepler crater. I don't see any caves but there is at least one small crater and lots of shadows.

I may download this LROS strip and do some investigating myself.

Shot M114206456LE very interesting. Now I shake it in the format of IMG, a little later I will be able to show his side after treatment.
Very interesting picture with a flowing pulp slope of a large crater.
After the pulp - a mixture of water and sand.

But the picture NO outcrops of sedimentary layer and the caves.

Maybe you can find the repeated shooting of this site.

A fragment of an image M114206456LE.
In the current region is a central, axial thin slice.
It can be seen in the picture (colored artificial colors).
Such axial part only makes for a fluid with low viscosity.
This is very similar to the flow of the mixture of water-sand.
The same thin center line creates mud volcanoes on land at the expiration of which the water-sand mixture.

Hello Sergsh,

Rim of crater Moore as Jules posted above.  Thanks for posting the photo strip.  What I find exciting is that I believe we are seeing an erosion/ landslide starting on the rim with the expanding cracks on the edge  8)  8) 8)

(http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad261/Tom128128/erosion.png)

http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M128075293RE (http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M128075293RE)


Here is some settling of the regolith and erosion further up the strip along the rim.

(http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad261/Tom128128/erosion2PNG.png)

Sergsh made a bold speculation about a possible contributor to erosion  here  (http://forum.moonzoo.org/index.php?topic=266.msg8090#msg8090). His premise is that ice crystals embedded deep within the regolith near crater walls may melt from the lunar Sun, similar to permafrost here on Earth, and may be a factor in the erosion/ landslide phenomenon we see today on the photo strips.  In the above photograph, I circled an area near the crater that has settled well outside the crater rim where we see signs of instability evidenced by larger fissures (cracks) in the regolith closer to the edge. 

Sergsh's process may be in action where the expanding crater diameter, though erosion over time, now makes the crater wall closer in proximity to a strata of ice crystals that the Sun has warmed up and caused the depression observed from above.  An interesting idea to consider.

These are indeed spectacular images of crater rim slumping, presenting examples of differing size and morphology! The size of the slump blocks and the way they look at the top are related to fracture systems in the rim, consolidation status of the block, and presence/thickness of the melt/ejecta/regolith at the top of the slump block. However, the question of when these blocks began slumping (during cratering or more recently) can't be answered with the data we have here.

Unfortunately, I see nothing that requires the presence of water to explain. The muted slump block is easily explained by the presence of unconsolidated ejecta, which blankets the surface and adjusts as the block slips. The debris flows are consistent with fluid flow of solid particles (think sand). You do not need something to be liquid for it to behave like a fluid.

Most importantly, while water has been discovered on the Moon, we need to understand how much water is involved. The newly suggested quantities still leave the Moon much, much drier than the driest desert on the Earth. So liquid water is highly unlikely. Think of it this way. When you see a slumping sand dune on the Earth, you wouldn't assume that it was formed by water mixing with the sand to make it flow. It's the same thing here.

I hope this helps.
: Re: Interesting terrain
: sergsh November 27, 2010, 06:58:28 PM
Tom128 - thank you for your support. We then hypothesized.
No one knows exactly - there is a lot of water on the moon or not.
Only drilling will solve exactly. Hopefully it will be soon.

Geoff - I agree - perhaps shedding of dry and very likely. But there is one problem - dry shedding does not give the central axis line. If we see the centerline of the stream - it is for a mixture of liquid and sand. On many slopes of the craters we see traces of flux and the center line.
 This is a very serious reason to look for water!

And yet, the picture can be seen that the talus does not begin immediately on edge. Scree begins below. And this place is (very likely) and is the beginning of the ice layer.
And it's very interesting to see repeated images of the slopes of the crater. They may be still active, although the probability of such success is small.

H'lo, my first post to the forums.  Was just marking craters and found something interesting.  At 3 O' Clock on the image below;

(http://i52.tinypic.com/16b0ot5.jpg)

There seems to be something really tall, casting a long, thin shadow.  There are boulders nearby that are casting similar, but much shorter shadows.  It looks like the object on the right is a really tall, thin rock, almost a column.

For reference; http://www.moonzoo.org/examine/AMZ10006ni

I've already seen a similar effect somewhere else: it's not a tall rock, it's a ... low terrain!
If you look closer, you can notice that shadows describe a crater to the right of the rock, hence the terrain goes down as much as far it is from the rock, thus causing the long shadow.

Impact craters are fairly conical. This looks like a pretty typical impact crater to me.

Hi dcortesi and welcome to Moon Zoo.

I find these difficult as well! What I do sometimes is to do a screen capture of the image onto the desktop, then open with an image program and rotate 180 degrees.
It really is a crater!

Hi jaroslavp and welcome to Moon Zoo.

This looks like a bench crater which means that the impacting body penetrated through the regolith and into the crust. See this thread for further information: Bench Craters (http://forum.moonzoo.org/index.php?topic=227.0)

If you find any more interesting craters you could post them in this thread: Crater Questions (http://forum.moonzoo.org/index.php?topic=4.0)

Hi Geoff,

Proclus is a very interesting crater! I found the section you were looking at. It's almost at the centre of the crater, but there still seems to be some movement happening further in towards the centre. The centre here is towards the top, so the erosion is actually happening at the bottom end. Also, looking around this crater, melt material seems to be lining much of the crater walls, which suggests that this is impact melt and not lava. So, what we have here is a thin sheet of impact melt, that probably used to line most of the crater interior, but has broken apart and eroded downslope towards the crater centre. Neat stuff!!

Wasn't sure what to make of that feature that starts at the top of the ridge at the bottom left and goes toward the center. Is it some slippage that softened but didn't erase the craters on it?

Speaking of interesting terrain, have people seen this on the LROC web site (http://lroc.sese.asu.edu/news/index.php?/archives/352-Fragmented-Impact-Melt.html#extended)?
(http://lroc.sese.asu.edu/news/uploads/M110919730L_thumb.png)
It's from the impact melt-covered floor of a large crater (Griodano Bruno). Basically, the thinking is that while the impact melt was cooling, some of the still-molten melt drained away (but it's not clear where to). This left the flash-frozen top (chill crust) of the melt unsupported, so it collapsed into this jagged rubble.

Just ran across this; a lot of fresh white craters in the area, which is neat enough, but I was interested by the structure in the upper right corner of the picture, looks sort of like a smoothed ridge.  I checked it out in the NAC image, and it continues on for a ways.  To my untrained eye, it looked almost like a lava tube; there are two of them in the NAC strip, in the lower half of the image.

http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M106461361LE  A link to the larger image, for reference.

Just found this, and didn't really want to make an all new post for them.  These two combine to make a neat feature that I noticed in ID: AMZ20002qs/ID: AMZ20002qt (http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M104670019LE , towards the top)

By the way, I just calculated that less than .68% (1619) of all the NAC images so far have been at slew angles from -10 degrees to -76 degrees.

53 NAC images are from -76 to -60 deg slew
42 NAC images are from -60 to -50 deg slew
60 NAC images are from -50 to -40 deg slew
70 NAC images are from -40 to -30 deg slew
384 NAC images are from -30 to -20 deg slew
1010 NAC images are from -20 to -10 deg slew
If anyone want a list of the higher slew angle images (-30 to -76 deg), I can post them here.

Hello Jaroslawp,

This is on the interior slopes of Proclus crater, so it is probably impact melt that splashed on the crater walls and then broke up into smaller pieces as it slid down slope.

Not sure if this classifies as a boulder or not.  If so, it is 290m across.

This crater struck me as an odd shape, even assuming two impacts.

It can be found here :  http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-3-CDR-V1.0/M107721135LC (http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-3-CDR-V1.0/M107721135LC)

It is about 20% up from the bottom, but difficult to miss without knowing that :)

My image is scaled down to 20% of the strip size.

Interesting crater Mike - I wonder if it was created by an oblique impact?

Okay, I've georectified the image so that a circle in the image is actually a circle on the ground.  This is still weird.  I would guess that there are two main craters here that we're seeing, but the lower one definitely seems elliptical.  Maybe Irene will have ideas if she sees this.

Wow, there have been some really amazing posts here over the past few days.

This one is definitely an interesting crater. The thing that I find most interesting is how shallow it is. I need to go and find the LOLA topography data for this crater to be sure, but it looks very very shallow for a crater. This suggest something more than just a very oblique impact. If this was on Earth, I would suggest an air burst, like the  Tunguska (http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2008/30jun_tunguska/) event. But, I think you need an atmosphere for a proper air burst, so I'm not sure what this could be.  It is most likely a very oblique event.

After I had posted my previous image I found another crater with an irregular shape. I can't decide if there is a second impact here, or not.  If there is, it is in about the same relative position as the one in my previous post.

The image is composite of http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M112162602LE (http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M112162602LE) and http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M112162602RE (http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M112162602RE)

If my memory is correct this image is 15% of full size.

Moving in again, this time at full strip size:

I was primarily motivated to examine this crater by what appears to be 'dust' (sorry, too new to think of a better word :) ) and scree running down into the crater.   I've included the final image to show the scree more clearly.  This object is best viewed on theo riginal  NAC strip though, since it also shows the surface cracking around parts of the the crater edge more clearly.

One thing I am left wondering by this object, is just how much of a part does backfill of a crater by erosion process, like thermal stress cracking, meteor strikes and ground quakes, play in determining the depth of a crater over time ?

Hello Bandred,

I was just looking at this crater, examining the very well exposed and preserved melt deposits on the little "hook" at the rim you zoomed into.

Yes, this crater is a bit unusual, with it's scalloped rim. It may be just that the target was a bit less consolidated (e.g. more rubble-y) than elsewhere, and that the melt veneer, which was emplaced on top at some locations, gave the top-most layer in those areas a bit more strength to withstand collapsing (which is a normal process at the tail end of crater formation). 

That said, we don't exactly know how much modification occurs due to the processes you mentioned. This is one of the things scientists are trying to find out. It is an important question, because those processes are pretty much the only ones still working today. The difficulty is that they work fairly slowly, much more so than the mare flooding and large impact processes (which mantle the surface with thick ejecta deposits), which were dominant several billion years ago,  and it can be hard to actually see how these processes worked over long periods of time.

I like these oblique images.  Mind you, they look very odd unless you correctly scale them (the width and height pixel scales are different by five times).

Forgot to mention....
Look at the mountain in the background and the crater on it.  Its on the side of the mountain.  Since most of the NAC images are looking down, this never really occurs to one that craters can be on the side of a mountain, but of course they can.  These hills/mountains look so tall.

Amazing.
I think it's the first one I see,  I although I knew they were going to take them, looking for "vertical cavern entrances".
How do I find such images in LRO archive? Do they have an "obliquos" tag?

To jumpjack,
I found that you have to use the
http://lroc.sese.asu.edu/data/LRO-L-LROC-3-CDR-V1.0/LROLRC_0005/INDEX/INDEX.TAB
The column (column 10 using comma delimitation) is the slew angle.
Here are some for the 0005 data release that are greater than +70 degrees oblique (the angle can be negative too).  Only 15 oblique images > abs(70 deg ) slew angle out of the 42875 NACs for the 0005 data release.

I would not download the *.img files name listed in that file (they are too big).  The list is just good to find the main name of the file and date/etc.  But you can use http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/search (i.e. the Image Search feature) with the file name from the list (e.g. "M143654688L" in the Product ID box) to give a list of the images.  You can then select the image from the list at the bottom of the screen and it will bring up the image page (with a viewer on one side).  You can just download the CDR PTIF (which is good enough for our use) and use your own computers image software to shrink it based on the height and width pixel resolution ratio.  The images also reside in the EXTRAS/BROWSE section (http://lroc.sese.asu.edu/data/)
For example, (http://lroc.sese.asu.edu/data/LRO-L-LROC-3-CDR-V1.0/LROLRC_0005/EXTRAS/BROWSE/2010262/) but it IS alot of work to go through the directories.

Incredible images!

A while back Jules and I were commenting on these pics linked below that are similar though I tried to see if I could adjust them like above.  Not sure if I understand how the adjustments work.  Do I snip the photo strip section first, upload snipped photo to photobucket and then try to play around with the dimensions?  It didn't work on photobucket but may not be understanding the procedure or the photo strip may not be eligible to do this.  I'll try again on Sumo Paint. (edit) Tried Sumo Paint. It's not set up for free style adusting from my look around.

 I think this is beyond my ability but certainly enjoy what I am seeing. Well done!

Now safely preserved over here (http://forum.moonzoo.org/index.php?topic=588.msg9752#msg9752). Now - a guide to scaling them correctly would be great!! Sorry to be rather dim about this (I'm happy manipulating photos but never done anything like this before) but is this the same process to obtain the georectified images astrostu was talking about here (http://forum.moonzoo.org/index.php?topic=582.msg9689#msg9689)? And if so is ISIS the only way to do it? How about Gimp or Photoshop?
: Re: Interesting terrain
: bandred April 21, 2011, 12:46:01 AM
Jules - from the georectification that astrostu did on one my crater images (page 43 of this thread) I think the process just corrects the image to a directly overhead format.  It looks as though ACT-REACT includes georectification, so you might be able to check it out on those images there.

Take care,

Mike
: Re: Interesting terrain
: jules April 22, 2011, 07:01:56 PM
Thanks Mike - yes I see the difference. I'm still working out how to best do these images but I've made a start with the following results from M144361170LC and M144361170RC by setting a custom pixel aspect ratio in Photoshop of 5:1. Thay are similar to JFincannon's images - I chose the same NAC image as I knew I could practice on that one. None of the other oblique NAC images I looked at (though I only managed to look at a few before we went off-line) were as impressive as that one!

(http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5187/5641177644_795bd1aea3_z.jpg)(http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5183/5639981409_c5bce45015_z.jpg)(http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5186/5640340024_f65b50af91_z.jpg)

Now this is going to be fun!! :D

I suggest we now use the thread set up especially for these images here (http://forum.moonzoo.org/index.php?topic=588.msg9752#msg9752) and leave this thread for the standard Moon Zoo images.

May be some type of fancy ejecta sculpting from the large crater to the right - on WAC mosaic when zoomed out- but not sure.

It's a ridge - and it looks fairly wrinkly..... ::) :-\
: Re: Interesting terrain
: Tom128 April 23, 2011, 02:49:06 PM
Hi Jules,

They seem different to me than other examples presented to us such as the one below from the IOTW, though we may have to coin a new name for smaller WR varieties.  I would certainly enjoy seeing a different aspect of these items similar to how the oblique images were modified if that were possible.

True - my last post was really meant to be tongue in cheek as I now have difficulty identifying these wrinkle ridges and tend to see them everywhere!

I like these oblique images.  Mind you, they look very odd unless you correctly scale them (the width and height pixel scales are different by five times).

M144564740LC
These hills/mountains look so tall.

JFincannon, these are truly amazing images!! But, I think you still have some vertical  exaggeration in these images. Try playing with the height to width ratio until you get something less stretched in the vertical axis. I don't think the small crater you point out on the far hill wouldn't have stayed so fresh on a slope as steep as what you have here.

Something like this looks more realistic to me...

Tom,

Can you tell me how you found these images in ACT-REACT? I am trying to figure out how to search on NAC/WAC ID and can't seem to figure it out...
Thanks

IreneAnt, 
Yes, you are likely right.  My approach was first order, but it would be nice to get it correctly adjusted.
: Re: Interesting terrain
: Tom128 April 28, 2011, 05:56:02 PM
Hi Irene,

I found these items when searching around the region with the ACT-REACT tool.


Here is a link to the ACT-REACT thread Geoff put together:

http://forum.moonzoo.org/index.php?topic=587.0 (http://forum.moonzoo.org/index.php?topic=587.0)


If I understand the question, you wanted to identify the NAC photo strip numbers in the ACT-REACT for that area/objects I linked to.  This is the neat part of the ACT-REACT tool.

*** First scroll in to the area where the footprints show up and you are over the item or area of interest.

***Now at the the top left of the screen you see two radio buttons, "Navigate" and "Search".  You were in the Navigate mode, so now switch to "Search" by clicking on "Search" radio button.

*** The funky part to searching for the photo strip numbers is that you have to click on your screen on the area of interest. Not really intuitive at this point but once you click on the screen, the search begins and a "PIPE" text box will pop up with the detailed info with the WAC and NAC photo strip numbers covering the Lunar area showing on your screen.

Depending upon how detailed the view on your screen is will result on how refined- possibly to one photo strip number for that area.

(EDIT)

Here is the NAC photo strip that has the formation I posted below: http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-3-CDR-V1.0/M119857068LC (http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-3-CDR-V1.0/M119857068LC)

Tom,

Can you tell me how you found these images in ACT-REACT? I am trying to figure out how to search on NAC/WAC ID and can't seem to figure it out...
Thanks

I mention in the List of Oblique Images topic that it seems like the correction should actually be to apply the pixel resolution ratio (Width/Height) times the cosine (slew angle *pi/180).   0 slew (looking down) give a cosine factor of 1.0.  But with 75 degrees slew the factor to apply goes to 0.259.  Multiplied by a resolution ratio of ~1/8 the total factor is ~0.04.  It looks a lot more real.

Hey Tom,
 
Thanks for the answer. I actually wanted to know how to view an image when you know the image ID, but not the Lat, Long coordinates. I can see (now that I look at again) that I didn't ask my question very well. Sorry about that.  :-[

On this note, and forgive me if this has been discussed, have we agreed on a standard width/height ratio?

This explanation is from the Old Weather forum, but the principles are the same. Just replace "log page" with "picture".
For Internet Explorer users:
  Right click the image,
  click Properties at the bottom of the box,
  then copy the URL next to Address
  and paste it into your post.
For Firefox users:
  Right click the log page,
  click Copy Image Location,
  then paste it into your post.
For Chrome users:
  Right click the log page,
  click Copy image URL,
  then paste it into your post.       

For Macs, right click or ctrl+click the log page
  click Copy Image Address in Safari
  click Copy Image Location in Firefox
  then paste it into your post.

Also, when you post a picture, post the ID, Lat., and Log. of each picture (a.k.a., the information that comes up on My Moon Zoo).

Is there a reference to why we need to flip or rotate some of these features to get our brain to accept them?  I have seen this effect with craters versus domes, boulders versus cracks, slides of dust/debris versus fairy ice castles.  Funny how the brain works.

"While early experiments have indeed suggested that human observers assumed light to come from above, it is now clear that this is only part of the story. The experiment reported here directly confirms previous findings in the visual visual search literature that the preferred illumination position is biased to the above-left rather than directly above (cf. Sun & Perona, 1998; Symons et al., 2000). Our results, based on a simple shape discrimination task, show that the bias to the left equals 26 degrees on average and is of similar magnitude in both left- and right-handed observers."

: Re: Interesting terrain
: Tom128 June 09, 2011, 02:47:55 AM
I think some of the the photo overlap by LRO at the poles has to do with the great circle orbits that bunch in tightly in both regions.  The good news is that the photo strip coverage is outstanding, though kind of surreal with all the footprints as you zoom in.  Using the ACT-React tool like you are doing is a blast as you can tweak the zoom to get outstanding views.  70 degrees latitude and higher offers some great treasure hunting. Probably an open secret in the Lunar science arena.

BTW, I see a Pareidolia angel in your fist pic  :)

: Re: Interesting terrain

Yes, I know near the poles would be the most crossovers and thus denser images, but its interesting to see what specific highly imaged sites are.

At least for the south pole site I found an explanation.  It is the Schrödinger impact basin and one of a few locations on the Moon that show evidence of geologically recent volcanic activity. A geological study of the basin shows evidence of lava flows and eruptions from vents.
http://www.physorg.com/news202404717.html
The recent volcanic activity is in red which matches the highly imaged area.

Hi JFincannon,

If you are interested, here's a bit more information on the south pole target area you highlighted. This particular spot is "the" pyroclastic vent in Schrodinge impact basin. The crater-looking thing is actually the vent crater, and is not an impact crater. The dark patch around it is a thin deposit of glass beads that formed when drops of molten lava fountained out of the vent.

Hope that was helpful.

Thanks for the information.  Any idea of the age of this?  It is unusual looking. 
Looking through those site documents show these which have been imaged alot:
Alphonsus Crater, Location (longitude, latitude): -2.16, -12.56 (Pryoclastic vents and materials/Lunar transient events)
Ina (‘D-caldera’), Location (longitude, latitude): 5.29, 18.65 (Young, D-shaped collapse feature, Possible vent for endogenous volatiles or volcanism)

Do you have a list of vent sites?

Hello JFincannon,

The best I could find for an age of the Schrodinger vent is 1-2 billion years old (Reference article here (http://www.sciencemag.org/content/266/5192/1851.short)). This, by the way, is *very* young! On the Moon, most volcanism is thought to be older than 3 billion years old.

I have not seen a list of vent sites, but I have found a list of:
        volcanoes (http://the-moon.wikispaces.com/lunar+volcanoes)
and  pyroclastic deposits (http://astrogeology.usgs.gov/Projects/LunarPyroclasticVolcanism/lunpyroWebDb.html),
which, on the Moon, are often associated with vents.

Hope that helps.

lon. 102.61970 lat 35.84661 sorry geoff but there a gozillin nac #  fer this and i'm really , really slow at this . did i say puter illiterate ::)
APPEARS ta be and impactor from the west makes a spat ( blue circle) pushes the melt to the east (outlined in blue to the east ) and makes a sloshy thing to the west (the west blue lines, that i shoulda made red ) and then, and this is the cool part funnels back down and swirls into what must have been an awsum -insert scientific term here -

 I look at it more on the post preveiw and due to the slides on the west the backsplash on that side is greater than marked .

But my question is .. Am i remotely close on this 1

Amazing stuff placidstorm! As part of the sciency course I'm studying I've just been looking at geological cross sections of features on Earth with the aim of disentangling layers, rocks and faults and putting them in chronological order. Pictures like these involve the same kind of detective work - and I think I need more practice! Quite a tangle of events here. Nice work so far placidstorm. Interesting swirly melt pond presumably caused by the way the lava flowed. As for the rest.......I need to think a little more!

 placidstorm, that is one cool crater (Giordano Bruno) with lots of different and interesting features.  It has an interesting pattern of landslides that is different from what I have come across.

If you click on this ACT-REACT link you will see an almost ghostly image of Giordano Bruno crater with ejecta streams going out in all directions http://target.lroc.asu.edu/da/qmap.html?mv=eqc&mcx=3121104.12352&mcy=1091266.8193&mz=10&ml=FFFB00TT (http://target.lroc.asu.edu/da/qmap.html?mv=eqc&mcx=3121104.12352&mcy=1091266.8193&mz=10&ml=FFFB00TT)  Zoom in and the streams make all kinds of patterns in the regolith  8)

Here is an interesting link that talks about how bright it is and how "A band of 12th century sky watchers saw something big hit the Moon 800 years ago. Or did they? A new study suggests the event was a meteoritic trick of the eye."

http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2001/ast26apr_1/ (http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2001/ast26apr_1/)



Here is Geoff's "How to guide" for ACT_REACT  (http://forum.moonzoo.org/index.php?topic=587.0) .  ACT-REACt goes from 0-90 N and minus  (-) 0-90 S latitude  and  0-180 E and  minus  (-) 0-180 W longitude.

It is quick and easy to use and one can get a great picture of where you have been.  Remember to hit click on permalink on the left bottom side before you copy and past the URL.

I think crater hopping like we are doing is a fun and easy way to see some marvelous formations.  I crater hop with ACT-REACT.  Putting a link in for ACT-REACT makes it easy for users to find your item and have a walk about  :)

Interesting swirly melt pond presumably caused by the way the lava flowed.

Jules has it right. The swirl was most probably formed by the way the melt flowed into the depression where it collected.

BTW, when it's melted by impact processes, we call it melt, not lava. Lava specifically means melt from the interior of a planet, melted by heating from interior processes, not surface ones. I hope that is clear. If not, let me know and I'll try again. ;)

S'more odd white crater things from a couple-three postings back.  In the same region.  Following placidstorm's example, I was looking more in the crater.

Not a white filled crater, but it (roughly in the center with center body and two craters on top like eye stalks) is kind of oddly shaped due to multiple hits and erosion.

It might be my lurgie addled brain, but i think im seeing things in this image which may or may not be there:

(http://moonzoo.s3.amazonaws.com/v10/slices/000362920.jpg)

The the right of the white speckled crater seems to be some kind of X shape.

On the bottom left of the image seems to be some kind of channel.

If you look for the three impact craters at the top of the image (which seem to have intruded on each other) i can see another channel like thing. On top of that there seems to be a few curiously straight features, and a few rounded rectangular craters.

If anyone else sees these, it'll be a load off my mind.

It's the south-eastern rim of Aristarchus crater. If you put the coordinates into the LROC WMS Image Map (http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc#damoon) and click on recenter, then check where you need to put your mouse cursor to match the coordinates, you can see exactly where this is.

These wide views with the sun overhead do make the terrain look odd sometimes! Wonder if there are NACs under different lighting. Those giant white splodges (technical term) must be craters.

Is there something different about the terrain in the last pictures that stops them forming a walled crater?

This is most likely a cluster of secondary impacts. Secondaries generally travel much slower, so they don't always have the energy to create the type of craters that we usually see, and instead create these shallow, ill-defined depressions.

This is an area at the border between highland and mare, not too far from the Apollo 17 landing site. You are looking at the rim of an old degraded crater. This area appears to be blanketed by some kind of melt, but whether it is impact melt or lava that flowed over the rim of the degraded crater and then subsided, I don't know.

Is there something different about the terrain in the last pictures that stops them forming a walled crater?

Also, where's this?

I think i found my next couple of hours worth of explorations  :D

This is part of a linear rille, so these are mostly collapse features. Take a look at the general area in Act-React (sorry, that tool isn't working at all for me now, so I can't give you a link :( ).

What you are looking at here is a slice of an impact crater. The top right is the crater floor (fairly flat). Most of the strip is the wall (steep slope). Then the bottom shows the outside of the crater (back to fairly flat again).

This is the area i'm looking around today:

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v205/_Ben_/location23october2011.jpg)

Lots of small, dark halo impacts and 'black stuff' to be found here, along with some secondary impacts, and a potential vent too.

I think this is an impact?  ???

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v205/_Ben_/blacksplatter-1.jpg)

Vent?

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v205/_Ben_/possiblevent1011221011.jpg)

Also, im not sure what this is, but it's filled with rocks (i think)

Ok, something a little different here, i've been following the course of Rimae Heroginous (spelling?) and while the portions that are mapped near the start of it are lined with boulders, further along there aren't any boulders along its course.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v205/_Ben_/boulderriver.jpg)
An example of the terrain further towards the source.

And then i came across this:

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v205/_Ben_/blockedflow.jpg)

Something more recently has spilled out over this portion.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v205/_Ben_/possiblepooling.jpg)

This is at the end of one of the channels, possibly the source or an end point?

That's certainly an interesting area you have found! I've been reading this Wiki  (http://the-moon.wikispaces.com/Rimae+Herigonius)and this paper (http://adsabs.harvard.edu/full/1997JBAA..107...16A) - though the image in the paper has not copied well. Rima Herigonius is a volcanic area and I would have thought there were other papers and articles around but can't find any on a quick look.

Unamed impact, near Regiomontanus C,H and B. It's quite an interesting looking crater, as it seems to have a small scattering of dark material (potential black stuff?) and it appears to have impact melt at the bottom, and a lighter coloured ejecta pattern along the bottom section.

New impact crater on the Moon! Since this crater is not visible in images from the Apollo 15 mission, it formed sometime in the last 38 years. The new crater is only ~10 meters (30 feet) across, but its bright ejecta extends much farther, making it stand out from all the nearby craters. LROC NAC image M108971316L; view is 400 m across [NASA/GSFC/Arizona State University].

These fresh whites look very new - nice "sharp" contours. Been reading about a new crater found last year by comparing an Apollo photo with the same region taken by LROC. There must be more of those. Tom128 was on a mission to find some a while back. Here's the link (http://lroc.sese.asu.edu/news/?archives/260-New-Impact-Crater-on-the-Moon!.html) to the article.

The smaller impact near Lassell F looks a little like a space hardware impact but the coords don't match with any crash site. Nice fresh impact though. Whether it's a secondary from its larger neighbour I don't know. Has to be a possibility.

I think we need a new collection of "wedge patterned ejecta."  :)

I'll go look.

I, for one, think it would be a great idea to have such a thread.
By the way, this wedge shape in the ejecta is called an "ejecta exclusion zone".

There are "tracks" or channels that seem to lead down to the dark feature. That's a very odd area full of dips and channel-like features. Maybe a transverse channel  in shadow? :-\

Second find of the day, a fresh impact where the white ejecta material has solidified, into a shape resembling an eagle. (I dont recall seeing too many impacts like these where the ejecta has solidified, usually it seems to be thrown out more)

A preview of tomorrow's explorations, which will be centred around a large farside crater named Humboldt, which has patches of mare, and has a number of crater impacts within the confines of the crater itself, and if that wasn't enough, it's riven with rilles.

Thanks, i was gobsmacked when i found the nac frame with the alternate expsoure.

I wanted to post this later on, when i had more images to show from Humboldt, but this one is too interesting to wait:
it seems as though in the upper left that something started to move?

in this nac: http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M168536744RE

which is part of this IOTW area:
Moon Zoo user kodemunkey spotted a puzzling feature in the ejecta from a relatively new crater in Oceanus Procellarum, just south of Marius crater. There is a dark, oval-shaped feature which stands out against the lighter coloured ejecta. This is the zoomed-out image.

Latitude = 8.5  Longitude = -50.7

As we zoom in on the feature it becomes clear that it’s a crater, maybe a secondary crater formed when the crater on the left was formed.

An interesting image I had not seen the likes of before.  It shows the Earth on the right and some unknown Moon terrain on the left.
http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M164816698LE (http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M164816698LE)
I shrink the height by 1/10, then reduce both X-Y scale by 50 % and then store in 60% jpeg compressed.
I attach the image (it is the first one).  They did not provide the right data to discern this from the data file in that it says the target is Moon, not Earth as they normally do.  Also, the slew angle says 0.0, but clearly this cannot be the case if you are seeing the Earth.

LROC does take Earth pictures every once in a while.  Here is one (second attached image):

You have to shrink it in height by some unknown factor (I use 1/10th scale) .

Well, they are using the same NAC camera for the Earth images and Moon images so the Moon terrain should look pretty much as usual.

In previous Earth images, they seem to avoid (or cannot capture) the Moon in the same image.  For instance, we have not seen an Earth-rise with the NAC, have we?

: Re: Interesting terrain
: JFincannon January 09, 2012, 10:05:11 PM
The only time you could capture an Earthrise with the Moon's surface in the picture too would be when passing over the poles and having some amount of slew to the spacecraft.  Since oblique images are pretty rare to begin with, I would think capturing this kind of image by chance would be remote.  Also, from what I have read, the timing to get the camera in the right place to capture the Earth is very hard.

Not sure what caused the marks, hopefully one of the geologists will have an answer.

Your image is from Philolaus crater which has a lot of interesting terrain, areas of melt, rilles, strangely shaped stuff all over. There are loads of NAC strips for this crater so much to explore.

This image is close to the "scrapes" and shows what looks like rilles:

Could do with a differently illuminated NAC to verify.

The problem with looking for pits/caves around the poles is that the sun elevation is too low.  I ran the JPL On-Line Ephemerus for that location (http://ssd.jpl.nasa.gov/horizons.cgi#top) and got data of which the following is typical for an entire year.  It lists the Sun azimuth and elevation in degrees where elevation is 0 when the Sun is on the horizon.

So basically, the Sun NEVER goes higher than 18 degrees above the horizon, EVER.  If there are pits, then it would be hard to spot the bottoms.

Here are two other images of the pit.  Note than all these images have Sun elevations from 12.94-16.13 degrees above the horizon.

Sorry, I replied to kodemonkey, but didn't make it to the forums...

I couldn't find this exact spot in the linked NAC strip (this is why an act-react quicklink is often more useful, so that people can zoom out and get a feel for the context). But, from what I do find, I would guess that we are looking at ejecta texture (herringbone pattern) from the large crater in the bottom part of the NAC strip.

I found an odd feature today and not sure if it's an imaging glitch. The white area to the right of the crater in the top right looks a bit strange.

This is the NAC - looks like the highlights in the Moon Zoo version were blown.
Rotated as I see the crater better that way! Bit of a messy impact too.

Thats a nice one . Looks like it punched through the mare pushing the regolith out of the way as it went .

This zoomed out version shows 2 more in the same area . Maybe a good set of regolith depth indicators for that area . Just guessing .  ::)

I played around with the Java Preferences app and now it's working again! I have two versions of Java specified, one 32-bit and the other 64-bit (both the same version: 1.6.0_29-b11-402). Originally the 64-bit was the first in the list and I changed it to put the 32-bit version first and now it works.
Just documenting this in case anyone else has similar problems.

Go to your Applications folder and find the Utilities folder. There should be an app called "Java Preferences" in the Utilities folder. Not sure what all the options do.

http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M167398258LE

It got me wondering, do the rocks have to have been moving to explode? can they not just fall apart over time?
: Re: Interesting terrain
: placidstorm February 26, 2012, 11:11:49 PM
Yup , they degrade over time . I am assuming , they want boulders with boulder tracks so they can differentiate from weathering . Tracks give them some kind of timeline as they don't last forever .  And the exploding part (as opposed to just fell of ) tells them there may be another process at work here .

10/10!! ;D Some boulders are blasted from an impact site and land never to move again. Rolling boulders either land on slopes or are dislodged by other processes (Moonquakes, other impacts etc). I suppose tracks are useful as placid says, as they give us a timeline, and also they allow us to track back to see where the rolling originated from and to follow the journey. Some boulders stay intact while others fragment. The more information we have the better in order to work out why they behave as they do.
: Re: Interesting terrain

So we're only interested in exploded boulders with tracks? (It's monday and i'm trying to get my brain in gear, please be gentle  ;D)
: Re: Interesting terrain
: jules February 27, 2012, 10:57:27 AM
Correct! Mind you there are various degrees of explosion. I think Tony is interested in both those that fragment completely as well as those that just partially fragment.

I'm trying to go back to areas i've visited before, but looking more at the surrounding areas. These two images are from the walls of Brygius A, and i can't help but wonder why one side of the wall has more of a material slide than the other:

an impact within Kopf that has done a very good job of filling most of the crater with ejecta.

It may be because Byrgius A is much steeper on one side that the other. And did you mean to post the WMS screenshot of Kopff crater? The terrain around there is interesting - so it fits nicely in this thread!

Hi silent_wa and welcome to Moon Zoo.

The objects at the top right are boulders. They probably come from the bouldery crater to the north east. If you click on the right-hand arrow on the original image followed by the arrow at the top on the next image you will see a large crater which probably ejected the boulders.

Here's the image:

: Re: Interesting terrain

Hi  jules and
hi Geoff,

and thank you for your quick reply and your explanation.

It looked strange to me as these three boulders have almost the same size and same (long) shadow length.

All other boulders around have much shorter shadows. So my assumption was that these objects are more than twice as high as other boulders.

Please see the following (rotated) picture, I took it from the NAC image, rotated it and improved the contrast, used unsharp mask (always the whole image). So you look at it from the north (I can imagine the depth and profile much better this way).

There are some trails around the marked boulders too. My brain tries to recognize something there but I think it is illusive.

(http://img26.imageshack.us/img26/7835/moonboulderslongshadows.jpg)

Interesting anyway, even when there are just boulders :)

But I will keep my eyes open to find more interesting things on the moon. Promised  ;)

A better view of the impact between Atlas A and Chevalier M than Act react provided, of note is the almost rectangular shaped crater, and the long, dark streak of material at the 10 / 11 o'clock position which to my eyes resembles a rille.

It's somewhere on the far side.

Very interesting Jules, and I have a question about terrain too.  Are those sinuous channels or something else.  ???  Maybe old lava flows?

Edited to remove advertising link

: Re: Interesting terrain
: kodemunkey May 02, 2012, 10:25:07 AM
If it was, the channels would be more defined. I think that's just the texture of the rock. It might be worth looking around the area to see if there are any nearby ejecta blankets.
: Re: Interesting terrain
: jules May 02, 2012, 11:26:57 AM
Welcome to Moon Zoo Jennifer! ;D
I think kodemunkey is right - that effect is quite common. I wonder if it's the result of the ejecta from many local impacts criss-crossing each other.
: Re: Interesting terrain
: Geoff May 02, 2012, 01:53:55 PM
Hi Jennifer and welcome to Moon Zoo.

I'd forgotten about this image! and I think Jules is correct, the cross-hatching is probably caused by multiple impacts nearby where the ejecta flows across the regolith creating the texture we see.

I've been exploring the last NAC link that kodemunkey posted and it's an interesting area - Byrgius A crater on the western limb of the Moon.

Some crops from the NAC strip M181580189LE (http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M181580189LE)

Quick post. I'm at Uni so i haven't time right now to post an image. This is an impact near T Mayer R. It's a "Fresh" impact with a feathery texture and a mixture high, medium and low albedo ejecta material.

http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M183696738RE

Ejecta blanket covering a rille:
http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M183732533LE

Unamed "Fresh" Impacts. I'm calling them "Tarantula A and B" (Top left of the strip, will post an image later) There's also a couple of white features lower down i'm calling "Tribble A and B" and below that is a feature that's light grey in the strip which reminds me of a chinese dragon.

Just replacing KM's interesting melt find. :)

This crater has an interesting melt pattern, part of which extends up the "lower" (in frame reference) wall. There's also a lighter albedo material around the lower middle of the crater and a large number of boulders protruding through the melt in the top of the crater floor.

I find this interesting and interesting feature, south of Herodotus, at 20.28deg lat, -50 deg long.  The high Sun angle image looks boring,
(http://lroimages2.files.wordpress.com/2012/09/actreact_20-28deglat_min50deglong.jpg)

but the low Sun looks intriguing. 
(http://lroimages2.files.wordpress.com/2012/09/m116635541me_689nm_crop.jpg)

It certainly is a hill with a messed up crater on top.  Did the hill/dome form as a result of a meteor impact?  Or was the hill/dome already there and the hole is a collapse feature?

The reason it may have seemed like it would go in the "collapsed voids" thread is the similarity to this feature. 

(http://forum.moonzoo.org/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=539.0;attach=335;image)

Its just that the Omega feature is a lot bigger, but the hollow dome is how they are related.  The potential for a hollow area inside these features (the collapsed ones I found prove some were) offers some interesting possibilities for bases.
: Re: Interesting terrain
: jules October 01, 2012, 02:31:30 PM
True. H Omega would make a very spacious base indeed.

I suppose H. Omega would be the main base for arrivals and departures for the near side of the moon as well as missions to the sinkholes of Marius and Mare Tranquilatis? I'm suprised that no one else has thought of such an idea before..and..i...should *dons tin foil hat* work that into my story before it becomes science fact, like everything else i put into my story seems to be.

I think it is. It's in Aristarchus so I assume it's an impact that excavated some younger brighter material......forming a square!! Lots of similar impacts in the NAC (http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M109548636LE).

Looks like crack, but the crack was created later than the crater. The crater seems to be halved.
: Re: Interesting terrain

That's an interesting find. I think it's a crater on top of a ridge. Ridge formed first - then the crater. Anyone else?

Still dont have my own laptop back from the engineers.

However, i did find this, it's part of a high albedo feature between Angstrom and a feature named Ivan.
http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M190880985RE

It's a slightly teardrop shaped crater, with a bench like ridge inside it and a small amount of high albedo material. It's in the top third of the image strip and is quite noticable at the default NAC zoom level.

Why do some craters have rim cracking but not all, is it due to elevation, regolith composition, moisture in the impactor?

Not seen those before! Nice find JJ - you can place that and any others potential collapsed lava tubes you come across here (http://forum.moonzoo.org/index.php?topic=265.0). If they are on a crater floor, however, they are likely cracks / voids in impact melt and would fit here (http://forum.moonzoo.org/index.php?topic=539.msg9017#msg9017).

It is odd though to have a boulder stuck in the middle of the track. Here's another example from the same NAC.

: Re: Interesting terrain

This could happen if a boulder rolled down a slope and collided with a second boulder. The first boulder would stop and the second would start rolling and create its own track.

I did not rotate the attached image 180 deg taken at low sun angle from the opposite direction.

Hi all.

Not so far from the stone there is this interesting formation.
: Re: Interesting terrain

Well spotted. I see 2 areas with unusual boundaries there.
: Re: Interesting terrain
: Geoff January 24, 2013, 07:45:03 AM
Strange features! Looks a bit like something scoured the surface moving from top right to bottom left.

Do we have coordinates for this image?
: Re: Interesting terrain

I dont know coordinates but its not so far from this boulder.

Approximate coordinates for the strange features: Latitude = 20.4  Longitude = 30.7

Will look at it again later today.

I don't think those are the same location, notice the one on the right is the strange feature and the one on the left is the coordinate of the other?

Here's your image:

(http://moonzoo.s3.amazonaws.com/v21/slices/000008793.jpg)

It looks like a malformed crater to me - the sunlight is coming from the left in the image.
If it was coming from the right then it would be something standing up from the surface. Shadows on the Moon can be tricky!
: Re: Interesting terrain
: jules February 23, 2013, 02:42:56 PM
That's a curious one. I've had a look at other NACS but there is no better image. I think Geoff is right - just an odd shaped crater casting a shadow but I have difficulty seeing it as so!
: Re: Interesting terrain
: JJ February 23, 2013, 04:14:32 PM
I see two craters, the one that looks like something standing is the lower one and the other one is a crater on top to the left.

So, Marius once again, and more of these white deposits. Is it ejecta or something only found here?

I see what you mean. Could be a crater on some high terrain. A closer ACT-REACT look is needed! There are some Cavalerius Hills but I think these are on the floor of the main Cavalerius  crater. (I should probably check my facts before I start typing... ::) )

This one is interesting, seems that it has a lot of original impactor there still, or am i being silly?
: Re: Interesting terrain
: jules June 02, 2013, 03:28:25 PM
Or is the deeper bedrock forming the floor made of darker rock? Seems to be similar to the surrounding terrain - just by eye anyway. :-\
