these are from Galileo
and these from the The Living Moon
note the square shape in both photos around Aristarchus in the 2nd and 4th images posted
the date these photos were taken the Galileo ones sometime after 1989 and the ones from the living moon 2006 or 2007 if someone could help me with the
dates of both photos that would be great, but they are at least 15 years apart
what you are looking at is the Aristarchus
crater on the moon
"The region of the Aristarchus plateau has been the site of many reported transient lunar phenomena. Such events include temporary obscurations and
colorations of the surface, and catalogues of these show that more than one-third of the most reliable spottings come from this locale. In 1971
when Apollo 15 passed 110 kilometers above the Aristarchus plateau, a significant rise in alpha particles was detected. These particles are believed
to be caused by the decay of radon-222, a radioactive gas with a half-life of only 3.8 days. The Lunar Prospector mission later confirmed Radon-222
emissions from this crater. These observations could be explained by either the slow and visually imperceptible diffusion of gas to the surface, or
by discrete explosive events."
^^This is said about the "lights"
