Here is a nice oblique view. Sorry I don't know the source of the image. Apollo 16? Has the look of LROC about it though.

Wikipedia article on magmatice water:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magmatic_water

If I understand it correctly, and I'm not sure I do, but the magmatic water on Bullialdus' central peak was brought up from deep within the Moon when the central peak rebounded from the projectile impact. This gives us a small look at the composition of the lower layers of the Moon's crust. Please some one correct me if I'm wrong.

Sorry, I'm getting a little carried away here. Ha! Don't know why particularly, but Bullialdus is one or my favorite craters to observe in my telescope, Ron
