One of the users has asked if it is possible to get the Longitude/Latitude details from the image reference number alone, i.e. if they don't have the image in their My Moon Zoo map?

This would be handy I think.

We are having some difficulty spotting crater chains and would appreciate a little advice - and more picture examples if possible.
Thanks! :)

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

Longitude: 62.2803
Latitude: 12.8347

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!

This is one beaut of a ridge/dome/mound and the first one I've been certain of!
(I wonder which galactic hero is buried under it? ;) )

Bench crater?


I've seen a few sort of like this and wasn't sure what to call them.  This one's the most exteme example of the look I'm talking about, so if anyone can tell me what this is (or if it's just "crater"), I'd appreciate it.  By the way, I see a face at a 45 degree angle.  With an eye patch.  I hereby name this crater "Whitebeard The Pirate".

I don't know what it is so I thought this was as good a thread as any to post it in.  :-\

Intriguing. This is the same spot from M106690695LE under different lighting. I think it's in the bottom of a crater.
