I would suggest reading this page: Science, which gives some information on Interstellar Dust.

I think you'll find from here: update that IDP actually stands for 'Interplanetary Dust Particle' - not what we are looking for but interesting. Interstellar dust particles are abbreviated IS in the comments.

I think I would have classified both these focus movies as bad focus.

Here's another with very low confirmations (16/155) that looks interesting, 2787987V1 . It's a shame the focus is so shallow, but to my eye a circular feature in the lower-left corner is still coming into focus at the bottom of the focal range while the local surface is just going out of focus. All ...

I'd like to suggest splitting the 'I found something cute, funny or interesting thread into to two threads: 1. 'I found something cute or funny' 2. 'I found something unexpected and I don't know what it is' At the moment the thread seems to be getting both kinds of posts and it would be nice to have...

Not sure if it is a track but it sure looks like the one shown as a example by the team but a little deeper and not as dark as the team example. let me know what you think. http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/myevents_viewer.php?id=9559485V1 Hi Roy - to me this looks like a surface scratch, not ...

7030632V1 . on the left of the crack, when you focus you'll see a small bright dot not visible on the surface. Is it a track? If your looking at what I think you are looking at, I think this is just a dark feature on the surface going out of focus. (Notice how dark features become lighter and light...

If it is a camera shadow I would expect to see it in every movie and for it not to appear to come in to slightly sharper focus at the bottom of the focal range.

I can't tell if this:
9119685V1
has something in the aerogel way below the bottom of the focal range or whether the large dark circular patch in the upper centre right is simply an artefact of the lighting/compression. What do you think?

That looks good to me as what in the last update were being labelled as potential interplanetary dust particles or fragments from the probe itself.

I agree with jcbc; the track-like blob comes into focus and goes out of focus at the same time as all the other dust on the surface, so is probably something lying on the surface. That said the two most clicked on movies that have been taken to further review look similar, except the surfaces on tho...
