What would you like to do?
What is a saucer-like depression on the surface of the Moon?
Foot prints, a flag and some dust....
craters from hits by meteors.
What are the these depressions called moons in the solar system commonly have depressions on their surfaces that formed from impacts with other solar system bodies such as asteroids and meteoroids?
The question seems a bit mixed up, but you could mean "craters".
The moon's surface is regolith (ground up rock).
Impressions on the moon are caused by meteors crashing into it, and they're called craters.
The moons surface is covered with regolith. There are 2 main kinds of surface; maria and highlands. There are lots of craters and dust. the moons sky is always black.it h…as no air or water
According to Neil Armstrong, "the surface appears to be very, very fine grained, as you get close to it. It's almost like a powder. (The) ground mass is very fine. The s…urface is fine and powdery. I can kick it up loosely with my toe. It does adhere in fine layers, like powdered charcoal, to the sole and sides of my boots. I only go in a small fraction of an inch, maybe an eighth of an inch, but I can see the footprints of my boots and the treads in the fine, sandy particles. "The "powder" Armstrong was referring to is called "regolith". The regolith covers the entire surface of the moon. When they returned to the Lunar Module and took off their helmets, Armstrong and Aldrin noticed the smell of gunpowder, which came from the lunar dust on their suits.As would be expected, the lunar surface is covered with rocks and craters. Most of the craters have craters within craters.
The surface of the moon feel SANDY and the moon is made out of ROCK xx

There are two distinct landscapes on the Moon, these are the Highlands and the Maria. The Maria consists of 20% of the Moons surface. They are the dark areas which were form…ed by lava flows millions of years ago. There is no longer any volcanic activity on the moon, so no more Maria terrains will be made. Most of the rocks in Maria terrains are variations of Basalts. The Highlands (also known as "Terrae") consists of 80% of the surface. The Highlands are littered with craters, large and small, caused by meteoroid impacts. Most rocks found in the highlands are anorthosite rocks, which are mainly formed of calcium. The Moon, mostly the Highlands, is layered with powdery, rocky soil, scattered with rocks, dust and globules. This loose layer is called Regolith. These loose layers actually cause problems for Astronauts because it can clog space suits and equipment. If it is breathed through the lungs, it can cause silicosis (most likely to be breathed through the lungs on Earth, when samples are brought back for analysis, since it's impossible to breathe normally on the Moon). It's not yet known what lies underneath the dusty Regolith layer. Removing the layers to analyse the solid surface of the Moon would be a daunting task, not just because the negative effects of the dust to suits and equipment, but because gravity will simply just refill the hole or cause hazardous dust to float around the excavation site. There are also many natural mountains on the Moon, not just those caused by meteoroids. Many of these mountains were also volcanoes. But the volcanic activity on the moon died out millions of years ago. Which also means no new mountains will be formed. It has also been discovered that the surface of the moon contains ice. Mostly hidden in dark, cold craters where the sun cannot reach. Believe it or not, you can actually get a look at the surface of the Moon yourself. No telescope needed. Thanks to a partnership between NASA and Google. See the related link below and explore the moon for yourself.
Its called a crater, Impact craters are the remains of collisions between an asteroid, comet, or meteorite and the Moon. These objects hit the Moon at a wide range of speeds, …but average about 12 miles per second
