During a specific phase of illumination of the disc's surface, a few specific craters catch light and form an "X" and "V" pattern at the terminator. Happens once per lunar cycle, so every month approximately, at a specific time frame.

Here's an example: https://flic.kr/p/J7vP​GC (external link)

Very best,

Isn't there a famous Ansel Adams that looks like this one?

And here is a stack of the above moon. Best 10 frames of 64, all 99% + quality.

A lot of work... for less detail some would say (and they would be right) .... but as a photograph - I like it better. I wish it stacked better... but there was some turbulance.
