Also of interest to me is the bright flash like thing at the top.
Aristarchus is a prominent lunar impact crater that lies in the northwest part of the Moon's near side. It is considered the brightest of the large formations on the lunar surface, with an albedo nearly double that of most lunar features. The feature is bright enough to be visible to the naked eye, and is dazzling in a large telescope.

This appears to be a fake. Your "anomaly" has colors around it, while the original image is black and white. The so-called anomaly was probably added later.

First off, a 300mm lens on a Nikon D80 is actually around 12.9X megnification. The D80/s DX sensor provides a 1.5x crop of the image from the lens compared to a 35mm size sensor. So 1.5*300=450, and 450/35=12.9.

I also don't believe these photo's were taken with a 300mm camera lens. A 300mm lens only has about 4.5X magnification. The detail in the photo's would need around 400X magnification to resolve. Just my opinion.
