This looked like an interesting pattern of boulders, so I marked it as "Other".

Welcome to the Moon MMatessa!  Those boulders look like they might be the edge of a now mostly submerged crater.  You will see thousands of these but any boulders just blow us away.  Who knew that the Moon had such things?

An interesting image Thornius!

If you look at the bottom right, there is a half-circle of craters boulders - very strange.

What on moon are those white projections in the top right corner, giving very long shadows?
I would have said they are boulders but the one to the middle of the image appears to be rising from the depths of a crater...."or floating above it!!!"???

Are we showing these images of boulders when we find them all, or is something special required? (I thought I'd seen a thread about this while I was first going through the forum catching up, but I can't find it now if I did?)
