The NAC photo strip really is quite good.http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-2-EDR-V1.0/M111219210LE
I grabbed some pictures of the possible crash sites we have been discussing off the strip and lightened them a bit to show better detail.
Jules' crater and possible impact site:
Possible impact site or dark halo-like crater:
Luna 20 again at same approximate altitude as the other targets.
Very intriguing possible crash site below. Looks like the item impacted showing some minor ejecta. From my understanding of Luna 18 it was on course for a controlled landing and not a planned maximum speed impact for seismic monitoring like the Apollo ascent stages. So, its terminal impact velocity may have been significantly lower. Maybe Thing or other forum members can shed more light on this topic.
This is the same target Thing and I discussed earlier in this thread- http://www.moonzoo.org/examine/AMZ100266z
Photo in link is inverted from NAC strip and target is above and to right of fresh white crater. Below is NAC photo strip grab.
This last photo really may show Luna 18 below and to the right of the fresh white crater. Looking forward to hearing a determination from the MZ team. Please feel free to jump in with your comments pro and con as we are all learning together
