    Now that's really odd..

    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 :-) )

    Found it!
    It's the Apollo 15 LRV!

    Just to the right of the middle, same crater pattern.

    Cool!

    You can also take a look at our FAQ. Click on the picture and you're taken to the landing site that I annotated here. Looks like it was the rover you found.

    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.
    Never mind.

    Peace
