I thought that that was due to the near side of the Moon having undergone volcanism _after_ most of the small bodies that would hit it had hit it, erasing many of the craters, and producing the "seas". Note: The other ("dark") side of the Moon _does_ get the same amount of light, but is called "dark" because its surface is made of darker rock. -- Simon Richard Clarkstone*rkst*n* / s*m*n_cl*rkst*n*
