In the last photo, the floor of the crater Hercules clearly shows two rays that start from Hercules G with a high albedo, which is the material ejected from the impact which was a really minor impact, but visible traces are left on the lunar surface, despite the small size of this crater which is only 14 km.
The three dark spots on the floor of Atlas, are also observed in these images.
On the western edge of Lacus Temporis (or east of Atlas), there is another small crater with a dazzling albedo when the sun is at high angle. I searched its name, but I did not found it.
