If this isn't the perfect example of crater formation, or perhaps
an ongoing modification, then I don't know what is. I am seeing
a plasma or ionised moon dust being pulled in from the surrounding
area, perhaps triggering formation of rim craters now and then,
being sucked down towards the center, and probably causing those
downward pointing dendritic ridges that we see at the inner top of
some craters. The center looks hexagonal.
This must have been taken from an orbiter or lander with their
UV sensitive high speed film. Maybe NASA was hiding this, isn't it
conclusive evidence, if not of crater formation, then at least
modification, and the reason for those light or UV flashes seen
from Earth sometimes?


Can you get some more info on this? I'm sure you are aware that this matches in many
ways features made during CRT experiments. In those instances a burst of energy goes
along with the removal of material to the probe in a single event. That point on the CRT
is being completely discharged. I've wondered out loud if a localized discharge can occur
just because of atmospheric condition,, a buildup and then a micro burst. The appearance
of activity above this event seems to be quite uniform. The central dog-legged column sure
draws my attention.

You'll see in a video on youtube, at channel 'dahlenaz07', what could be considered a micro burst
but that didn't make a crater, like other smaller discharges made during other experiments.

A determination of when this occurred, with reference to the day-side/night-side boundery, would
be a detail i'd suggest be focused upon. It seems like a logical place for the release of charge.
i think this has been suggested by others as well.. d...z

Hi GaryN,

Below some links that might give some extra quick info and links concerning TLPs:

or from a thread which should be familiar to dahlenaz ;) :

Electric discharges to dusty CRT match planetary features

have fun!

As craters go this one has some interesting details that may not be seen in older features.

A 3D version is at http://www.para-az.com/mars-in-3d.zp.html

Take note of the radial aspects that look like trenches or crater chain.
Sure would be nice to find an image of this area before this feature formed. d...z

I can't explain crater formation, but I do have an observation about craters which contradicts the theory of their formation by impact.

Nearly every crater I've ever seen pictures of in the solar system – whether on our moon, another moon or on another planet – are perfectly circular. Surely this requires that the falling body strike the moon or planet at 90o

Yet a falling body will (I think) always strike the moon or planet at an oblique angle as gravity pulls it in and therefore will always leave an elongated impact crater. Even if only slightly.

Small elongated craters can be seen from photographs of where small meteors have hit the earth close to a handy photographer.

But I have not counted even ONE elongated crater in all the pictures that I have seen of craters on our moon, other moons and other planets.

Doesn't(/can't) this disprove/falsify the theory of crater formation by impact ?


I completely agree with this, this is also my observation! Good stuff! Around 90' is also what I have been suggesting, I think if a small body comes in at a shallower angle I believe that in interation of the negatively charged bodies maybe enough to disuade the impact, in effect, altering the objects trajectory. I also believe the reason why the Tunguska asteroid cannot be found is because the interaction of the negative charge of the Earth and the asteroid was enough to cause the asteroid to explode.

Thanks :D

* There are plenty of oblong craters on Earth, though.
* Mind, have you seen the TPODs on the Tunguska event? They certainly agree that the meteor exploded before impact (due to electric discharge). They also suggest it was one of the Taurid meteor stream meteors.

* Here's where to find all the relevant TPODs, I think, and then some: http://www.google.com/#sclient=psy&hl=e ... d3f8dcd1fc

Years ago I posed the question about craters being always round to a well known astronomer lady seen frequently as a spokesperson for mainstream magazines. Her email address was available so I contacted her with the question. Her answer was that impacts on space objects striking from any angle will always produce a perfect circle.
I thought of the oblong lakes in the Carolinas but I didn't want to email her anymore.

Do you still have a link or contact info,,, i got to hear her explanation for that one. d..z

I searched for it in my old emails before I posted. I will continue to search. I would like to go private with interested members if I come up with the email. Internet etiquette and all that.

This is cut and pasted from the email I received from an astrophysicist. The > sign indicates a portion of my question to the scientist that was cut and pasted by the scientist into the answering email.

No, primarily because there is no credible source for such "electric
bolts" in the solar system, neither have any been observed. The other
phenomena you mention can be easily explained by processes we observe and
understand.

You are correct that most meteors do not strike perpendicular to the
surface. However, it turns out that any projectile, at any angle, if it
is moving fast enough, will produce a round crater. We have done
controlled laboratory experiments to verify this. Most meteors are moving
quite fast (~15 km/s) and produce round craters. Furthermore, we can
often determine what angle a meteor impacted from the symmetry (or lack
thereof) of its ejecta pattern. Again we do lab experiments and compare
those results with what we see on planets."

[Expert said:] we do lab experiments and compare those results with what we see on planets.

* But they ignore plasma experiments.
No, [craters are not formed electrically] primarily because there is no credible source for such "electric bolts" in the solar system, neither have any been observed. The other phenomena you mention can be easily explained by processes we observe and understand.

* That claim is not credible. Ask your expert to explain crater anomalies listed at http://thunderbolts.info/forum/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=4056#p45338. And ask him or her to explain dendritic ridges and scalloping of craters and other features on Mars, as shown in the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-qrnsh83f4.
* Okay?

The email from the scientist is dated March 22, 2006. As stated above, I no longer wished to carry on a correspondence with the "scientist". My hope was to start a conversation about the claim that any angle of impact on a moon(or other body)results in a round crater(explaining crater formation being the subject of this thread). I have never seen any mention of this breathtaking claim in 5 years of TPODS since the email. This thread reminded me of that old email so I dug it up and I now ask-does it even sound plausible that this could be so? I am not able to blast away at dirt from different angles with rocks(?) to experimentally investigate this. It sure seems wrong.

* It sounds like impacts at angles may result in round craters, as is claimed below. That's why I didn't include that in the list of anomalies that support the electrical formation of craters. It seems likely to me that electrical effects will occur at all high-speed impacts, because of the high heat and ionization such impacts cause. The question is what percentage of impact features are electrical effects and what percentage are gravitational etc.
http://www.rhprep.org/phorton/MeteorNew.htm
Barringer, however, had experimented by firing rifle bullets into rocks and mud, and had discovered that a projectile arriving at an oblique angle would nevertheless make a round hole. In 1923, Barringer's 12-year-old son Richard published an article in Popular Astronomy, using his father's rifle experiments to argue for the impact origin of the lunar craters; Barringer himself repeated the arguments a short time later in the Scientific American. The conclusive arguments in the lunar debate were provided by astronomers such as A. C. Gifford, who demonstrated that the force of an impact at astronomical speeds would result in the explosion of the meteorite. Whatever the original angle of impact, the result would be a circular crater.

Hi all,

What is to be said concerning the origins of the following craters on our Moon, situated in Mare Fecunditatis...'Messier and Messier A' ie:

Image

and of course, their long tendrils:

Image

Seems like a glancing blow to me and they both are very huge, measuring some 11 kilometers and 8 kilometers in length respectively and around a kilometer in depth...and as you can see they are obviously not circular, being themselves quite elongated and the exposed regolith to me suggests comparative recentness.

also,

I am interested to know your thoughts.

Cheers.
