Can anyone identify what this crater has in the middle of it?

The description for both images reads as follows:

April 30, 2006
Petavius (L16) and Humboldt (L87)
Crater with domed and fractured floor
Crater with central peaks and dark spots

10" LX200GPS
Lumenera LU075M
IR-pass filter
1507 frames stacked with Registax 3

Mar 19, 2005
Crater Copernicus (L5) 10" LX200GPS

Philips Toucam
IR/UV filter
2x barlow
1/25s exposure, 10fps
106 frames hand selected out of 600 frames
Registax 2

Can anyone identify what these objects are, eroded from the craters specified above? Much appreciated,

I just don't understand this, I mean theirs how many registered and visitors on ATS right now and no one can come up with an explanation?

Who's On - There are a total of 82 registered members and 1312 visitors on domains right now.

Ah well. Better luck next time?

I've always understood those features as a rebound from the impact.
There is probably an official name for it..

But it's the equivalent of a "frozen splash" as the center of the crater rebounded from the impact of the meteor or comet that slammed into the surface.

oh, I wanted to add that in some cases, it's theorized that an impact would also cause some magma to seep up through the center of craters as well.
I would expect those type of features to be quite a bit older, when the moon was more geologically active..

Doesn't that look like a classic moon base? It looks to me like giant quonset huts.

I'll echo what spacedoubt said. You can find tons of craters with central peaks all over our Moon or just about any place with lots of meteor impacts. Here's a link that talks a bit about it.

Oh. Ok, so this isn't an alien moon base afterall =(

But great explanations!! Thnx

It does seem somewhat "convenient" to have a lot these formations dismissed by the natural occuring 'impact rebound reaction' for a lackof.

But doesn't matter really... plenty of pretty solid proof in John Lear's forum.
This thread in particular. Around page 20-35 have much of the "smoking guns", thanks to Zorgon, John Lear and co.

Nice find anyway,
