Please take a look at http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ ... =5860637V1.

There are multiple events - I counted 6, or even 7. They are pretty small. Do you think those are tracks or just artefacts?

Hi there,

I think I found couple of events that to me seem very realistic. I wonder if my finding are just artefacts, as agreement rate is very low? (2/80; 6/86 and 12/96 respectively) I would like to hear what others think about these findings. Please, let me know.

Here are the movies:

Some of those look very interesting. For instance, in 9337800V1 the spot you marked must be rather large. Find the focus, find any little spec, and start focusing upward. You will run out of focus, or your spec will totally disappear before it gets as large as the circled spec.

So your circled spec must be very big, its not just an inclusion out of focus.

The only problem you can't go further down, as it is the very last image in the movie below surface :-(

Guys/Gals, what you think of this? A possible track or a tiny nick?

Closest thing to a training movie or CM that I have seen. Right down to the absence of any mark on what appears to be the surface.

Definitely not a track - it is on surface.

If you believe that, bring it into SHARP focus, then focus UP, and explain that clump that comes into focus ABOVE what you choose to call the surface.

plexuz, nope, it is not on a surface. After some careful examinations, it looks like more like an air bubble.

I agree, it could be a bubble. Come to think of it, lots of CMs look lile
bubbles too. Oh, wait... No air in space.

I also see (or imagined) an entry hole in the top surface. More of a slit than an hole.

I was 31 of 95 to notice this one, but nobody posted a link to it yet so here it is.

http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ ... d=862370V1

You can see what looks like a thin track going in at an angle, then a clear, black speck at the bottom of the track.
As far as dust goes, this is pretty cool. If this isn't a real one, I'll be surprised.

It really looks good. The groove leading to the speck is very linear and indeed slanting.

It looks like a surface feature to me... There's a dip in the surface but I'd still say it's on the surface.
