One of my very best images of this intriguing feature. The feature is pure albedo based and not by relief. The lunar soil tend to darken due to solar radiation. However due to local magnetic field some areas are protected from radiation, much like the magnetic field around earth protects us from solar radiation. Due to this the soil locally doesn't darken as much.
