Sry 4 no coordinates in previous post, I can tell them if someone finds those pics interesting...
Here's something else:

I found that it's actually a slope of a pit - "lake"? - with some channels coming from it, some hundreds kilometers long.
Longitude: 6.38291
Latitude: 7.67317
What's the origin of those channels? Volcanic? Erosion?

The area at the top left is inside Hyginus crater and the white area shows the edge of the crater. This area is one of the few places on the moon where they suspect active volcanism occurred. I will try to find your area on the Hyginus map I have.

This link has more information about Hyginus and the next Image of the Week will be about Hyginus.

I've posted a copy of your image in the Hyginus thread.

I marked this as a sinuous channel, and then looked at the surrounding terrain, it seems it is heading out of a larger crater to the bottom right, I was just curious how this formed and what it is?

I would have to look at the bigger picture to be sure. I keep wanting to type "impact melt flow" - but I could be wrong!

Another strange backward "S" feature in the upper left.  Perhaps we should start a "Lunar Alphabet" section?

Or perhaps its a Lunar, "Yin Yang"?

This terrain appears a bit odd.
