I'm no expert or scientist, but it almost looks as if an asteroid came in on a really, really shallow angle? Is that possible?

There's a good example of a crater probably formed by a shallow angle impact here: http://forum.moonzoo.org/index.php?topic=850.msg13648#msg13648

I'm still not sure about this crater - if it is a crater and not some sort of rille.

I was thinking it reminded me of Schiller. I'm trying to find out more about your elongated impact - it's surprisingly elusive!
