YES!  We need some kind of scale on those pictures!  And a zoom tool too.

Hi Geoff  :)

A scale would certainly help in estimations...

I have seen what looks EXACTLY like terrestrial river channels.  Coming out of highlands, twisting and turning, and as they enter the lowlands, fanning out to form a PERFECT river, "delta".

Interesting feature - is this the edge of a crater or a channel?

Here it is I believe.  There are VAGUE delta like features at the end of some if these linear channels.

A rille, possibly sinuous or a cliff on the edge of a large crater

You may have noticed some tidying going on. I've removed "tracks" from the title of this thread as there is a much more useful Boulder thread now. :)

Thank you,

Found it!!
There's an elongate pit just left of centre I'm sure of it. Just looks too - well - elongated to me to be a standard crater.

We're going to need more examples because for me that's more like a channel   :o ???  And it has 2 mini-craters very recent because they are white.
