so it might be that the 'light' that travels through space is in the EUV range, and the thin lunar atmosphere is creating the UV that the instrument detects

The images were taken a few years ago by cameras on the Chang’e 3 lander and Yutu rover. In December of 2013, China joined the ranks of Russia and the United States when they successfully soft-landed on the lunar surface, becoming the third country ever to accomplish this feat.
What made China’s mission especially remarkable was that it was the first soft-landing on the moon in 37 years, since the Russians landed their Luna 24 probe back in 1976.
Today, anyone can create a user account on China’s Science and Application Center for Moon and Deepspace Exploration website to download the pictures themselves. The process is a bit cumbersome and the connection to the website is spotty if you’re accessing it outside of China.
I look forward to more pictures from China! Now, I wonder, who here thinks this is another faked Moon landing?

What are these? Is this the area the Chang'e-3 lander platform landed?

I'm a little hazy here, correct me if I'm wrong, but the last time I checked I'm pretty sure the whole moon fakery issue pertains around actual humans running around on the surface of the moon does it not ?? sometime around the late sixties / early seventies using the technology of the day was it ???
If there is not enough atmosphere on the moon to create visible light for the camera, then how do you explain the visible light photographs?
We report that the sintering at 1000 °C of silica nanoparticles (an average diameter of 14 nm) produces a transparent sample that exhibits a bright visible emission under UV excitation.
Both Apollo 14 and 16 photographed Venus from the surface, and not with particularly long exposures. It's a very bright planet.
But that's not how this works. That's not how any of this works. UV isn't created from EUV by atmosphere. Scattering doesn't affect frequency AFAIK.
This can be discussed further here www.abovetopsecret.com... for as long as it takes, and be perfectly on topic. Are you up for it?

Earthshine mostly, and at certain times the beam created by the fine lunar dust by way of solar UV excitation.
There is no visible light from the Sun, the light is created in the atmosphere, a full spectrum visible light is produced by silica nanoparticles when UV bombarded, that is an accepted fact now.
The lunar surface is covered in nm sized silica glass particles created by impactors over billions of years. ( I say from ekectrical discharges not impacts, but that's another story) The dust is lofted into the atmosphere by charging of the dust by solar UV radiation. The beam of light, obvious in both Apollo and Chang'e images is created in the lunar dust atmosphere, and not by scattering of Sunlight by the dust. There is no Sunlight to scatter, there are no images of the Sun from cislunar space.
Yet none of the astronauts reported seeing this very bright Venus from the Lunar surface. And don't give me the dark visor, bright lunar surface nonsense. If they could see Earth, and Venus was close by it should have been blindingly obvious. Has Chang'e imaged Venus? You're probably going to tell me they have no reason to, they are not there to take images of stars or planets at visible wavelengths, for some reason I can't figure out.

Of course, stars don’t appear in the images because the light reflecting from the surface blocks them out, like how you can’t see stars in the night sky when you look at a street light.

what are those? They look like debris, because they are multiple colors, brown, green, red, yellow...
they are mostly purple/blue and some green/brown/yellow. Is there any better ress and size for the images? Nothing special the way it is 72dpi and we cannot create nice crops, just pixels.
Have you seen the new project by a guy ufologist in the news? He will send a mini-cube sattelite, with hd cameras to hunt ufos and with open platform for all to watch live (he claims)... We may see good stuff.
