A very odd bench crater indeed.

Here's your image:



It looks like a malformed crater to me - the sunlight is coming from the left in the image.
If it was coming from the right then it would be something standing up from the surface. Shadows on the Moon can be tricky!

That's a curious one. I've had a look at other NACS but there is no better image. I think Geoff is right - just an odd shaped crater casting a shadow but I have difficulty seeing it as so!

I see two craters, the one that looks like something standing is the lower one and the other one is a crater on top to the left.

I also had this one to classify recently - the object looks like a tadpole! Don't know what it is.

So, Marius once again, and more of these white deposits. Is it ejecta or something only found here?
http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-3-CDR-V1.0/M1106267144RC

New impact into old crater chain, or new impact and new crater chain?

http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/view_lroc/LRO-L-LROC-3-CDR-V1.0/M1106224230RC

"Fresh" impact into an ejecta plume.
