Compton-Belkovich Thorium Anomaly


Cameras aboard the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, launched in 2009, showed that the center of the Compton-Belkovich Thorium Anomaly was relatively reflective in visible light compared to its surroundings. The high-resolution cameras also revealed unusual features in this bright area. Credit: NASA/GSFC/ASU/WUSTL, processing by S. Wiseman and B. Jolliff
