I need help with what I am looking for
« on: March 04, 2014, 04:58:36 pm »
Is there anywhere else I can go please to get a better idea of what I am looking for?  For example what are sinuous channels, dark haloed craters, bench and mound craters etc...  How many & how close do craters have to be to create a chain? The tutorial did not mention any of these. I would appreciate guidance.

Hi Zooniverse99 and welcome to the Moon Zoo forum.

It took me a while to learn about some of the odd stuff on the Moon like "bench" craters. etc.

You could start by looking at these links to threads within the forum:

Bench Craters

Crater Chains

Dark Haloed Craters

I think that's enough to go on with for now but please post if you have any more questions.

Have fun exploring!

Thank you I will check them out.  Since I posted I have located another tutorial which gave a lot more information but any help is welcome.
