Yep, that one's already on the Alpha List, and when I rated it I marked it as a probable fiducial mark. The Berkeley Team has not yet confirmed that. Average rating so far is 7.333.

What about 186168V1, bottom right corner, going in a NE direction?
It’s only had 6 clicks out of 120 views so far, and hasn’t been mentioned elsewhere in the forum or got to appear on the Alpha List.

Although the few high-contrast ‘blobs’ appear marginally off-kilter to the possible low-contrast ‘track’, and there is a similarly-aligned feature to the left, it looks to me as though possibly ‘diving into’ the aerogel surface at a shallow (sorry, high) angle.

I see what you're looking at, but that one appears to me to be a surface feature. I'm one of the 114 that took a pass on it. (The fact that I recall seeing it means I stared at it a while.) We'll see if any of our other Red Team colleagues think differently.

This looks like a possibility to me but out of 37 I was the only one to click on http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ ... =8263120V1

I see creases or wrinkles in the aerogel, but only surface features, nothing that looks like a track candidate to me. Perhaps someone else will spot something.

I found it on the Alpha List, but as yet unrated by Berkeley. Worth a look I think, but probably lower priority.

Hi guys, I'm a newbie and I think I've found a track. What do you think about it? It's in 125,340 position in the movie 7415297V1:

PS: being a newbie, is there a smarter way to link a movie page here, rather than copying the URL?
Thanks everybody!

Hi wanny,

To post a movie you can look in the post above you, open their movie and then copy their URL. Just change their movie number to yours. :)       easy

Here is their movie:
http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ ... d=186168V1

And here is your movie:
http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ ... =7415297V1

You will notice that your movie is a calibration movie, not a real movie.

6699048V1 is also a calibration movie.

Hey Wanny, thanks for being part of the program.

That one looks like dust (the non-stellar kind) or some other thing on the surface of the aerogel to me, but not a track. Wonder what fjgiie thinks.

9012914V1: another needle poke? (1/4, not listed)

I remain unsure whether the team welcome us continuing to post such probable fiducial tracks, and whether they are (or deserve) being added to the Alpha List or not.

We do John! In fact, this one's odd enough that I put it up for review.

Danz, I believe this might have am actual track in it. When I clicked on this movie, it went into my "Events." 68 or the 129 dusters who viewed it, have clicked on it. Upper left quadrant, inside "circle" on gel. ERSTRS
