I just had to re-post another version of the fresh white crater that JF posted on the boulder repellent thread  :)  It appears to have a mystery ejecta blocking feature in one quadrant of the eject pattern.   Notice how the ejecta is piled up on both sides of the open wedge near the crater.  8) 8) 8) What are your thoughts?

Lat  6.473  Long 66.925

I don't have anything to add to what we already know about these craters - courtesy of IreneAnt but the difference between the two types of material in this image is striking. You would expect the contrast to be greatest with a high Sun angle anyway but this is really is intriguing.
