Ohsin, there will be many other images not in that mosaic. I am travelling, but when I can I will find good images for us to work with.

Hello, Ohsin. I used this site:

https://ode.rsl.wustl.edu/moon/indexMapSearch.aspx


to find, by trial and error, this image:

http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO....0/M108986899RE


It is flipped left to right because of the way the camera works.

And here is the location of 3105 - I have flipped the base. Compare with your 3104 map to see how they join.

3205 is right at the 'top' (in my image) of ellipse 2 in my earlier post. If there are still several more images the impact is likely to be at the other end of my ellipse 2.

Rough prediction: 89.61 South, 108.0 East

This map shows the recently located images. The impact should be somewhere near the 'bottom' end (on the image) of the large white ellipse, well up on the connecting ridge between Shackleton and De Gerlache. The coordinates supplied to the UN are clearly not correct. There is a real possibility of locating the impact site in LRO images.

That matches well Phil! Frame 3105 appears to be well more than a kilometer away from edge of frame 3104, so no overlaps.

Thanks for the alternate resource, it is very helpful and I am going through it. Here are two images with well illuminated areas where rest of missing frames and possible impact point should be.

To follow up on this thread, I am attempting to get access to any remaining images from MIP to see if the impact site can be specified more precisely. Any news will be reported here. One conclusion - the impact was slightly on the far side, as the image two posts above shows.
