Hey ATS, I came across this article with a pretty neat picture of a large hole on the moon that could swallow a football field. Check it out.




New photos of the moon have revealed the most detailed views yet of a rare hole in the lunar surface — a pit large enough to swallow an entire football field whole.

High-resolution cameras aboard the Japanese Kaguya spacecraft first spotted the irregularly shaped chasm, located in Mare Ingenii on the moon’s southern hemisphere. Now, NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has taken a new, up-close photo of the moon pit from lunar orbit.

“Only three have been discovered thus far, so I believe it is safe to state that skylights (pits) are rare at the 100-meter scale,” Mark Robinson, principal investigator for the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) at Arizona State University.

Mare Ingenii, also called the “sea of cleverness,” is best known for its prominent lunar swirls, which are highly reflective surface features that are associated with magnetic anomalies. The new images of the region from LROC show a giant pit measuring about 427 feet (130 meters) in diameter.

It is interesting to see the different texture beneath the layer of icing on the cake. I wonder how thick that icing (moon dust top layer is). Judging by the
description of the length of the sinkhole/hole/pit it would be about 50 feet?
And just beneath that, there appears to be a COMPLETELY different strata.
Did any of the Apollo missions drill and take core samples of that?
There's Gold in Them There Hills! or should I say Mines?
