Top left corner.
Looks artificial. Look at the pointy shadow pointing 2 o'clock and the dark track off the left edge.
Did I find a rover or something?
(hopeful :-) )

It's the Apollo 15 LRV!
Just to the right of the middle, same crater pattern.

You can also take a look at our FAQ (http://cosmoquest.org/Moon_Mappers:_FAQ#I.27ve_found_lots_of_things_at_t he_Apollo_15_landing_site._What_are_they.3F). Click on the picture and you're taken to the landing site that I annotated here (http://cosmoquest.org/home/images/1/16/Apollo15_Annotated.jpg). Looks like it was the rover you found.

Nothing new then.. :-)

It may not be anything new, but it's still cool, I think. It's like finding a needle in a haystack -- I think you have around a 1/200 chance of seeing an image with an Apollo 15 artifact in it with the current bank of images.

Same crater pattern? How?? I can't see how they line up at all!
Cool that you found it, though. Keep up the good work!
Grace and peace.

Wait! I see it now! Further to the right of center than I was looking. I was thinking your pic was the LEM descent stage, which is not what you said at all.

Much better than train spotting :p I remember the pic from an email via NASA but couldn't remember which mission so ta muchly.
