Yep, this one's already on the Alpha Listing and has been confirmed by Berkeley as a fiducial mark.

Nice ones. Yours is already on the Alpha listing, tudorbug. I'll add yours, tiburd. Both look fiducial to me, but one never knows. Best of luck!

Gads, Martin, someone's been busy! Those all look good to me. I've added them all to the Alpha List. Some are fiducials, of course, but there are several good-lookin' candidates there. Best of luck.

Thanks Mike! I have been accumulating those for some time actually. I believe that I was first to click on the two first ones only.
I like to post all the good candidates that I come accross (even the fiducials sometimes), these are like gold to me... actually it could be something way more valuable than gold hehe.

I think I've found a clear TRACK---right side middle. But, it went to my events---I didn't get a point. Will try to upload a screen shot.

Hi, Evelyn. Nice find. That one has already been confirmed as a fiducial mark. You can find it on the Alpha list. Sadly, you get no points for finding those. Hopefully, your next find will be a real track - no points for those either, of course, just fame and fortune without the fortune.

692924V1: Similar to Evelyn’s - ? horizontal fiducial, but can’t find it referenced on the forum or in the Alpha List (there is a 6929240V1 there, but it’s different). First to view, at least in phase 5.

Nice, John. I've added it to the Alpha Listing. Looks rather 'fiducial' to me, but it's on an angle so maybe not. Good luck!

Well, 5120607V1: yet another almost-horizontal track (in very top-left corner) with similar multiple blobs to those above, which though differing in precise details is, I guess, most likely due to a fiducial needle. Again, there’s no mention of it in the forum nor on the Alpha List. First to click on out of 7 views so far.

This pattern is becoming so familiar that I wonder, if definitely fiducial tracks, we should be told to ignore them like trackless inclusions (for all I know that's why the first 6 viewers more wisely didn't rate it!)
Don’t the team have a record of where the fiducials were inserted, so could exclude such movies and reduce their growing burden of potential tracks yet to be analysed, or do they actually welcome our help in locating them?
No problem if so, but it would be good to have the official view.

I promoted it to the Alpha listing, John, but agree with you that it's a probable fiducial mark. Mike
