How come this page doesn't refer to anything from Luna 10? On the Luna 10 page it is stated that Luna 10 was the first to notice Mass Concentration, yet no mention here?
Smythii is mispelled in the figure. I think it would be best to show one of the type mascons, such as Imbrium.

Does this mean if "I" enter a positive gravitational anomaly/mascon weighing 200lbs before entering, that i will be heavier than 200lbs upon entry?
- Yes, your weight would change as you walk over the surface of the Moon. Same happens on the Earth. See the World gravity map Robert Walker (talk) 11:38, 17 August 2015 (UTC)
Lunar Masscons explained by asteroid impacts
This article has had only minor edits since 2010 and I think it might be a bit out of date.
Probably should mention this research from 2013:
"The mass concentrations form a target pattern with a gravity surplus at the bulls-eye surrounded by a ring of gravity deficit and an outer ring of gravity surplus. The team found that this pattern arises as a natural consequence of crater excavation, collapse and cooling following an impact."
Hello fellow Wikipedians,
I have just modified one external link on Mass concentration (astronomy). Please take a moment to review my edit. If you have any questions, or need the bot to ignore the links, or the page altogether, please visit this simple FaQ for additional information. I made the following changes:
- Added archive https://web.archive.org/web/20120218232128/http://sse.jpl.nasa.gov/missions/profile.cfm?Sort=Target&Target=Moon&MCode=Luna_10 to http://sse.jpl.nasa.gov/missions/profile.cfm?Sort=Target&Target=Moon&MCode=Luna_10
