A crop of the area:


A larger view


But it's redacted so you can't see the detail when you zoom in too far in the LROC viewer. Very Interesting.


And a link to the image:

This looks more zoomed in:

I don't know why the grey box is gone now. At any rate, it still looks like a doorway to me.

It looks like other peolple are talking about this as well:

It does look interesting. There is one other dark shadow up on top from the "wall." makes me think that the "door" may be just a shallow overhang.. At the same time the formation looks odd to be inside a crater to me. I need street view to be sure.


If it is a door, someone has an underground facility. Or had.

Something akin to "Helms Deep":

More and more fascinating because the crater itself has the look of an open cast mine. What I wonder is whether craters look different on the moon to the earth due to gravity or some other factor. I am not too well up on these things but watch with interest. The Opening, if it is, does look made not natural.

That's the way craters are formed - the initial impact blasts out a V shaped ring of material. The ground is fractured and actually collapses into circular rings of terraces. You can see the fault lines in places around the picture.

I can see the full zoomed-in view of that structure. It really looks like a U shaped terrace with a small cave underneath.

Interesting how the LROC blocked it out.
Nasa up to its old tricks again supressing evidence

What was that? I didn't catch that.

Seems like there is one directly above the one you pointed out as well.
