yeah I was thinking that...

But to be concentrated on one spot to make it look like a dot of light. What would be the instigator?

moon rock?

:D

I know most are crators, the one I'm most interested in is the one bottom left. It's seems to be concentrated on just that one spot.

I'm no astonomer, just took a photo and would like to know what is the phenomenom?

Obviously has something to do with light refraction and spotlights :P

The freshest and most recent craters appear bright white.

Craters.

[link to www.oarval.org]

I'd suggest you download the image and then rotate it 180° so that south is up and north is down to match your Australian view.

You'll then see, for example, that the bright spot in your image on the 4:00 line is #73 = Crater Aristarchus.

And, of course, #60 = Crater Tycho, perhaps the most noticeable crater on the moon.

The bright ones are relatively young impacts.
Aristarchus is estimated to be ~450 million y.o. so "young" is truly relative.
