This is very interesting - and unexpected (at least to me):

Apparently there may be small features of volcanic origin on the Moon that are less than 100 million years old. The images are also very interesting - I would probably never have guessed that the image at the top was of lunar terrain.

I see gross similarities with some purported Mercurian volcanic features. Interesting indeed!

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

You saw it here first:

(and many other posts in that thread if you follow it)

Sarah Braden was already well into documenting the features, I think, but had not published anything, when I did an LPSC poster on them.
