Are we meant to mark large bouldery areas, if they are not in craters and if so do we just say 'other' interesting feature as I can't find a more suitable option.
This is an interesting boulder strewn area. The area looks symmetrical - if you draw a line down the centre of the area it has almost mirror symmetry.http://moonzoo.s3.amazonaws.com/v8/slices/000019389.jpg
Interesting feature - is this the edge of a crater or a channel?http://moonzoo.s3.amazonaws.com/v8/slices/000010672.jpg
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.http://moonzoo.s3.amazonaws.com/v8/slices/000011218.jpg
A rille, possibly sinuous or a cliff on the edge of a large craterhttp://moonzoo.s3.amazonaws.com/v8/slices/000011289.jpg
Ridge, cliff, rille?http://moonzoo.s3.amazonaws.com/v8/slices/000014086.jpgOff to locate it on a detailed map. Back soon. Somewhere in the sea of Crises.
Do I have a spacecraft? Top left. http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4061/4497564298_c4f2a33655_o.jpgI did flag it as one.
Just tidying and putting my boulder tracks (which I originally thought were tracks from a spacecraft) in the right thread...http://moonzoo.s3.amazonaws.com/v8/slices/000012081.jpg
A bouncing boulder!http://moonzoo.s3.amazonaws.com/v8/slices/000010824.jpgIf you look to the right of the bottom left-hand corner you can see a line of very small craters left by the bouncing boulder at the end of the tracks.
Rather liked this view, looks like a couple of pork chops!http://moonzoo.s3.amazonaws.com/v8/slices/000011796.jpg
Here's another shot of the same area from further away:http://moonzoo.s3.amazonaws.com/v8/slices/000012629.jpg
I am wondering where we are drawing the line with regards to selecting very ancient craters. I see amongst the more obvious craters some very old geological features that are not well defined but are obviously very old. I must stress that I mean the realy old ones. Now, one has to be careful in making the choice against mounds but, with practice, the isn't a problem. I did have an example but never saved it to favoutites, I'll look for another.
Difficult to know just where to put this one!http://moonzoo.s3.amazonaws.com/v10/slices/000387909.jpgOn the foot hills of the Apennine Mountains.
Wow, lots of interesting images here. I hardly know where to get started.A few questions:Does anyone know if there is any way to use the My Moon Zoo feature to see the location and relation to Clementine data for the images that are being discussed (when it's not your image and so isn't in your My Moon Zoo already)? Context is soo important in image interpretation, so any little bit would be helpful.
