The longest crater chain, to date, was found on Mars.




Lat: 64.203
Lon: 10.921E

Thermal Emission Imaging System CGI Mars Map

To view the crater chain click on the CGI map and pan its length. This crater chain, one of two in this image, are the newer surface feature and cut across other craters. This crater chain spans down the cratered highlands an estimate of one third the distance from Mars northern pole to southern pole.

Crater chain of Shoemaker-Levy 9 would have been much longer and bigger if it would have hit solid surface instead of gas.

SL9 is of no comparison to shoulder to shoulder crater chains.

The beginning latitude/longitude is Lat: 73.781 Lon: 8.312E and the ending is Lat: 42.328 Lon: 18.249E.
That means in length this crater chains stretches over 31.453 degrees latitude and angles 9.937 degrees in longitude, that is in Mars latitude and longitude distance.

Well I have to admit a longer crater chain has been identified by Pete.

To quote his words:




It didn't take long. Here's another very similar artefact - this one is much longer, and again exactly parallel to the Surveyor orbit:

You can track this artefact all the way up to latitude 71, and down to about 25.
