Post Lunar Anomaly
Took these two nights ago with a digital camera and a beginner's telescope after being struck by the excessively bright spot and *gaseous protrusion (?).

From what I can discern from Google's images, the area of interest is the Aristarchus crater [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aristarchus_(crater)]. A search here returned zero hits, but I'm curious whether anyone may have targeted it already.

What would be a good cue to approach this one?

[nnnn-nnnn] Earth's Moon/"Aristarchus Crater"/nearest artificial structure/current activity

Considerations:
Wiki says it's a relatively young crater (400 m years) which might account for the higher reflection. So, maybe it's just light focused by an effectively elliptical mirror illuminating suspended surface dust. Some other sites on the web contain images of apparent higher quality and a definitively geometric profile, as well as an abnormal light frequency spectrum signature.

At minimum -- this, plus Swann's Penetration could cause one to realize the absurdity of the atmosphere-less "dead moon dictum" pushed by NASA for so long.

Any topside revelations may be pretty intriguing, obviously.

Start by defining exactly what you wish to know. What is the primary question you want answered.

If this happens to be your source of interest, then, perhaps taking one of your digital photos and putting a TRN on it, then drawing a line directly to the area of interest to you would be a good starting point. No need to create a cue in this case.

BTW, forgot to mention that your suggested cue is faulty from the get go. For starters, dont use quotations within your cue structure-gross/general/specific/detailed. Quotation marks are only used to define a topical search term.
