Boulder Tracks!

I mentioned the other day some of my favorite LROC images featured boulder tracks and as luck would have it I found another one on the LROC site. I say YAY! There is activity up there every now and then – mostly then. These probably created from the crater making impact?

This one is pretty cool not just because of the curved tracks, these tracks are located on the far side of the moon. The associated crater is called Van Gent U.

Have a look at the LROC site for a full description and a link to a zoomable version of the image.
