We have used maps of the OMAT optical maturity parameter, along with other Clementine UV-Vis image products, to study two interesting lunar features related to albedo and optical maturity. Examination of the region of a small crater whose formation has been suggested to be a candidate for the flash photographed in 1953 by Stuart demonstrates that the candidate crater is not unusually fresh compared to other small craters in the vicinity. Therefore it is unlikely that the formation of this impact crater ge…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
