The standard cliche regarding evidence is the so-called "smoking gun"; that one crucial piece which, by itself, clearly "proves the case."
Well, in terms of NASA -- and what they've been hiding on the Moon for over 40 years -- we finally seem to have that piece--
Our long-awaited Smoking Gun.
To understand the true dimensions of this startling and very recent development, we have to begin "at the beginning"; we have to start with the launch of NASA's first unmanned return mission to the Moon in over ten years ....
This is an infrared image of the Moon, taken by one of the two "mid-IR" LCROSS cameras during the initial swing-by. This is exactly as this IR image initially appeared on the official NASA LCROSS website, in the early hours of June 23rd.
Study it carefully--
For it contains essential clues to, not only a tumultuous "inside NASA" revolt apparently now on-going within the LCROSS mission itself ... but, extraordinary visual evidence confirming the existence of our Enterprise model of "a set of ancient lunar domes" ....
Behold, our "smoking gun."
A preliminary mosaic of images from the far-side of the moon taken by the LCROSS the mid-infrared camera. These are the first thermal images of the far-side of the moon. The colors represent measured lunar surface temperatures, with reds being the hottest (+158 F or +70 C) and the bluish-purple being the coldest (-148 F or -100 C). Temperatures are effected by several factors including shadows, like those cast by crater central peaks and walls, and by surface properties, such as reflectivity. The images were taken during the mission's lunar swingby on June 23, 2009 as the spacecraft flew from the south pole north.

Why do they need all this time to study them they could Release them and still study them unless they are just making sure there is nothing in them.

...I'm no expert when it comes to spacial bodies showing examples of being a smoking gun. All I can see is an IR image of what I presume to be heat and radiation emitting from the surface.
Why this area is important is a bit of a mystery to me seeing as the crater these craft are going to crash into is in the 'always dark' side of the moon.

I'm a little confused as to what exactly is being presented here but I think that the idea is that the 'dome' (crater) is hot in the thermal image so is therefore not natural, If I've totally missed the point here then let me know!
If that is the case however, My interpretation would be that the crater in question has possibly absorbed slightly more thermal energy than the surrounding terrain because of the smaller particle size and therefore larger surface area of the lunar dust within the crater. Just a thought, but a logical one.
