    This is a zoom of a particular location on the moon. I've seen a feature IDENTICAL to this, but in a photo in which it seemed to be a boulder going obviously downhill. In this case, I cant really tell.. :?

    Moved here from AStro/Cosmo - I think physics covers things like gravity.. :wink:

    The object seems to be self illuminating.

    Is it some kind of ice that reflects the light in another way than the plain rock?

    Another thing noticeable, if the moon rounds off in the downer left corner,
    The object must be at least the size of New York.
    I haven't come to fight my word, but to find the truth.

    Unfortunately a scale to determine it. Rather it is an enlarged view :-D

    As an amateur astronomer I can say with some confidence that is not the moon 'rounding off in the corner, it is another feature, can you source this picture back to an observatory or NASA? - I think this is a closeup of either a small moon from an outer planet, or possibly an asteroid, where, the shape may be far from round and any slight force could cause this this.

    When I look closely at the picture I see a feature running diagonally down the screen dividing into light and shadow, it does not look like a crater rim but more of a 'ridged hill' which are very common on mis-shapen asteroids. I also believe if it were the moon I would recognise this picture. unless it is of very recent origin.

    See this one for example on Eros:-

    Okay, first of all it is the Moon were talking about here. I have a youtube video of me taking a look at this feature -

    In the video it seems this thing is rolling across the surface and perhaps even up a hill.

    I don't remember exactly the image exactly, but I know it's from the Lunar Orbiter series from this site - http://ser.sese.asu.edu/LO/ ORRR this site - http://astrogeology.usgs.gov/lo-cgi-...ng=newestFirst
