Hi Bruce,

I also agree with you and Ted about the dust and debris
hypothesis about the star's misinterpretation and it is my
mistake.

I don't agree in your guess of a 100 miles arc longitude because
the bay named SINUS MEDII closer to the 'print's light' measures
350x350Km/212x212Miles. The light spot in the 'print' measures
about 50x50Km/30X30Miles almost the same size of PALLAS crater.
(info bellow SINUS MEDII)

See SINUS MEDII picture:

See PALLAS crater and craterlets:

( this image is not very clear but I'll fix it tomorrow)

The size of the suspected meteor's that hit the Moon was
approximately 20 meters (65.6 feet) across as Dr. Bonnie J.
Buratti asserted

I posted two hours ago that the light of the 1953 image from Dr.
Stuart is located between the following craterlet points south
of PALLAS crater and north west of BRUCE's crater. It's not a
joke. :)

PALLAS crater
Position:
Longitude: 1.6=B0 West
Latitude: 5.5=B0 North

PALLAS H craterlet
Position:
Longitude: 1.5 =B0 West
Latitude: 04.60 =B0 North

PALLAS B craterlet
Position:
Longitude: 2.6 =B0 West
Latitude: 04.20 =B0 North

PALLAS C craterlet
Position:
Longitude: 1.1 =B0 West
Latitude: 04.50 =B0 North

PALLAS E craterlet
Position:
Longitude: 1.4 =B0 West
Latitude: 04.00 =B0 North

PALLAS F craterlet
Position:
Longitude: 1.3 =B0 West
Latitude: 03.40 =B0 North

PALLAS X craterlet
Position:
Longitude: 3.2 =B0 West
Latitude: 05.20 =B0 North

BRUCE crater
Position:
Longitude: 0.4=B0 East
Latitude: 1.1=B0 North
