I'm also taking another look at this - it is close to the Ranger 8 impact but can't be the impact itself as that left a crater while whatever this object is it is not a crater!

This is an image from QuickMap showing the region from the original post:

The rectangle is at the coordinates: Latitude=2.735  Longitude=24.627

I can't see any unusual features nearby. Will look at further NAC images.
