    Who made this black spot and black trail?

    Are we the source of this black spot and black trail, or is this the handiwork of little green men?

    Thanks to kmasterdo and to grapes for pointing me to the annotated Apollo 15 landing site image and suggesting to flip the image. I flipped the image from Simply Craters to match the craters in the landing site image.

    Curiously, the white spot in the center of the black spot clearly present in the annotated image is absent in the Simply Craters image.

    I quickly consulted the annotated Apollo 15 landing site image, and I think the image you posted could be part of the landing site.

    The OP image is a lot fuzzier, but the general configuration of shapes and craters seems to align with that part of the Apollo 15 landing site labeled LRV1, "upside down." Perhaps a different sun angle, and less camera resolution?

    Assuming that it came from MoonMappers, yup, that's Apollo 15, from when the sun was nearly overhead.
