Aristarchus was excavated by a huge meteorite impact “only” 450 million years ago. You’d almost call that recent in lunar years especially considering that most of the moon’s craters are some nine times older, having formed nearly 4 billion years ago. Sunlight and solar radiation darken the lunar surface over time; Aristarchus hasn’t been around long enough for that to happen.
