I thought that was a bouncing boulder track. :-\ Maybe we (I!) need a closer view.
I thought there was a hint of a crater chain (at least like the tutorial pictures) underneath that.

Maybe.....

I agree about it being a boulder track and there's another one in the top left corner.

Thanks for your response, Irene. :)

However, I too thought that to be a boulder track, and flagged it as such in my analysis.

So, the problem arises, and clearly not just in my eyes.....
How are we going to differentiate between boulder tracks and crater chains?
And once that problem has been resolved amongst us, can the resolution be added in the training module so that new hunters will not have the problems we are having; or at least, not so much!

This could have gone in the boulder thread as I assume it's a boulder rather than a bit of spacecraft but it struck me as odd so I put it here!

Think you might have a meteorite imbedded in a crater rather than a boulder.

So explain this one!
A good 500 miles from the Apollo sites, but who else might be using square-pad tracked vehicles?

Copied over to the Ina thread.

I've only been doing this for the last couple hours, but this area is amazing to me!!!!

Longitude: 5.31755
Latitude: 18.6295

Like I said, I've only been doing this for a few hours, so if I should give some more information about how to find this, let me know!

Yes, Weezerd and Jules, that is a tough question.
In my experience, things like that are crater chains. But then, my experience has never been at a resolution where boulders are even possible. What do crater chains really look like at this high resolution? How do they differ from boulder tracks? I'm not sure if anyone has really thought about this. If they have, I sure hope they share their experience with us....

Hi petruchi41 and welcome to Moon Zoo  :)

You've found an area called INA, you should add your find to this thread: http://forum.moonzoo.org/index.php?topic=126.0

There is more information about this area in the Image of the Week thread, see:
http://forum.moonzoo.org/index.php?topic=116.0

Nice find petruchi41!! Welcome to Moon Zoo - what a great start. :)
Please follow Geoff's instructions as we are collecting all the different parts of Ina in it's own thread - and you have found a new piece of the jigsaw!

Could this be a crater chain?

This is the tutorial pic of a crater chain.
There are some similarities.


I'll put this in the Team Area and hopefully one of the team will enlighten us!
