Moved this over from another thread. This thing is a monster. Check the photo strip half way up on the left.  Looks like the moon stamped a smaller image of itself for us to see  :)

LOCATION

By far the most interesting group of craters I've found: eroded craters, a candidate to bench crater on the lower left, something similar to a crater chain / elongate pit west-southwest from the bouldery crater on the upper middle.

Most of them are elongated and at different angles.

And, most interesting of all, on the upper right, two overlapping craters (herring bone feature, secondary craters?)

I think this will pass for an elongated pit...

The crater at the top of the image has a face! Looks a bit simian to me  :)

Oo!  I see it!  And it looks like he's cupping his hand to his ear.

Is this an ancient eroded crater?

In Mare Crisium.

If Geoff, or anyone else, still has this image on their favourites, could you please post the MoonZoo ID number. I would really like to browse around this one some more.

Thanks a lot!

I thought I'd saved the details of this one but can't find them at the moment - will look again tomorrow and post when/if I find them.

From the coordinates it appears to be strip M106511834RE. It's the obvious white walled crater top left.

Thanks Jules - I should've gone back to my original posts and would have found the coordinates.

I've seen a few sort of like this and wasn't sure what to call them.  This one's the most exteme example of the look I'm talking about, so if anyone can tell me what this is (or if it's just "crater"), I'd appreciate it.  By the way, I see a face at a 45 degree angle.  With an eye patch.  I hereby name this crater "Whitebeard The Pirate".

Thanks so much Jules. That is one amazing crater. I think you can see 2-3 distinct white layers in there!
And thanks also to Geoff for looking.
