I was looking at that too! You beat me to the photo on here. I saw it when I was playing around with the picture, but had to make dinner before I could point it out. Yeah - it seems very structured. Not saying it IS a structure per say... but it's a little odd in it's surroundings.


It stuck out like a sore thumb!
And,what ever it is,is not an "artifact" of imaging,cause it is casting a shadow.

I admit it does look strange but it is most likely a complex central peak crater. It's not that uncommon Tycho also on the moon comes to mind

No, it's nothing, it's probably a stone formation, which by coincidence looks like an artificial structure.

I'm pretty sure, I could be wrong though..


A neat little formation to say the least.

Well,whatever it is, I'm sure it will soon show up as a thread about a secret moon /alien base soon.

Or at least a youtube vid with some background music.

Eh fine I'll play along how about this one with something parked in it?

Ok,I checked google moon,and they have way better pics.
What are we paying NASA again for??
I think this is the same crater.

Cool! I think its a nice pic. I love new images of our solar system and so on.

You can even see where it's been welded together

Is it my imagination or does the north pole seem to be much more cratered than the rest of the image?

Very strange photo - to me
it looks like a relief and put
into a low twist to get the
optical illusion. Maybe it is,
maybe it isn't but it looks
photo shopped. Just my
2 cents.

Better pics on google earth/moon

Having programed a bit, that picture looks a lot like the result when you choose random dots in a circle if you don't pay attetion to spacing.

Trying to explain:
If you choose a random dot in a circle, you need an angle and a distance from the center.
Only use 10 dots to draw every circle. The closer you get to the center, the closer those 10 dots will be.
So the closer to the center, the more dots you get.

Result:


Which if you ask me, looks a lot like the picture of the moon.
Dots being craters of different sizes.

Nice find Taurus, I definitely see the spiraling effect you had mentioned, very cool.

Not better than the full resolution mosaic:

Nice image.




As a curiousity ... I find that the longer I stare at the image that there's (in my opinion) a counter-clockwise spiral optical effect that seems to draw my attention inwards towards the central crater complex.


Ah, that's the 'Golden Spiral' or 'Golden Ratio' (sacred geometry), it's found just about everywhere in nature.

What's incongruous for a 'natural object' is that every crater only penetrates to a certain depth, like those of a golf ball.


Seriously?! If that's true, something is definitely really bizarre with the Moon. I can't believe there's some sort of amazing "bedrock" at a uniform depth across the entire planet.

I also find it really intriguing that we're tidally locked and at the perfect distance from each other for there to be a "perfect" solar eclipse....seems that the odds against that happening would be pretty huge. Also the reports and evidence that the moon rings like a "bell" for quite a long duration when it's been struck by a large object. Much unique weirdness here. If these traits were common for moons of other planets, that would be a different story. It seems our Moon is unique in so many ways as to make the chances against that pretty slim.

Someone really needs to go back there....not just another probe....a manned mission.

Something seems out of place with the moon...Such massive but shallow craters, intrigues me.

Take for example, the Rozhdestvensky crater.

I don't know what hit the moon to formed that crater, but that seems like a massive comet or asteroid, given the sheer size of the crater, but what amazes me is the how shallow the crater is. Very intriguing...

It's not that intriguing if you remember that the bigger hits melt the whole area, so the result is not a deep crater.

And no, not all craters have the same depth.

Hey ArMap, good to see ya...

I just think it's amazing and intriguing.

Peace

All I can think is that if we ever get our space program up and running again that little bit piece of ground is going to be very expensive some day, since that is where you might want to put your radio relay towers.
