Anteriormente se consideraba la hipotesis de que un periodo de actividad volcanica y magnetica se habia iniciado en la Luna hace 4 mil 200 millones de anos, y se pensaba que esa actividad habia cesado hace mas de mil millones de anos, sin embargo, esta hipotesis pareciera desmentirse con la aparicion de resplandores esporadicos en la superficie lunar, dentro del crater Langrenus.
You can gaze across the near rims and floors of the limb-hugging craters Moretus, Pythagoras, Langrenus, and Zucchius to the bright rim-crest scarps and the jumble of terraces below on their far walls.
Langrenus is a 136-km-diameter crater near the eastern limb of the Moon.

By observing Langrenus when it's away from the terminator, you'll see that it also has rays, but they're less bright than those radiating from Copernicus.
