Hi Moonmoonmoonmoon and welcome to Moon Zoo.

This is an area very close to the south pole of the Moon and images from this area are often full of shadow and sometimes distortions of the craters.

You can explore the area around your image if you go to "My Moon Zoo" and look under the "Recents" list to find the link to your image, or you could just click on the following link: AMZ1003awq

If you move your cursor around the image you will see arrows appearing on the four sides of the image which allows you to see the neighbouring images.

Have fun exploring the Moon.

I'm not sure about this one - I'm downloading the NAC image so I can zoom in and get a better image. Will report back later.

Update:



Looks like a crater with a central peak - don't think it's a bench crater.

Hello dear fellows. I'm jut new in Moon zoo (but a little user of zooniverse).
i just found a intriguing image but i don't know how to find the associated name.
the image is enclosed : i put it in favorite but don't know where to find it (what a newbie !!!)

The heart of my surprise : some boulders left tracks on the moon !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!and more,  tracks not linear !!!!!!!!!!!!!
first time of my life that i hear (see!) this. i know rocks on earth which move strangely on some desert, but the mystery has been explained. but on the moon !!!!!!????????

Wow. I will read with pleasure your comments.
Thank's

Hello Alpha and welcome to Moon Zoo.

You have found some boulder tracks on the Moon. These are caused by boulders rolling down slopes and leaving tracks in the lunar regolith.

There is a thread with more images of boulder tracks here

Let us know if you have any more questions.

Well, just another simple question. my count of image marked in zooniverse / moon zoo is always locked at 82, while i mark more and more craters (logged). sometimes it go to 42 . then go back this morning to 82 without doing anything.
I remember red a post where the count were not exact. We are pleased to help the scientific community and one important return is THIS count, so it must be more exact !
(all the other projects run fine)

Thank's
