Why is it that every picture from Moon (those that I've seen) has no stars? I live in a big metropolitan city and even in downtown, which is very well lit at night, if you look up at the sky you can still see plenty of stars. When you get out of the city during the night and look up - you can see millions of them (the stars that is). All those picture from the Moon have a pitch-black sky (or nearly so). I get it, lights from the craft and whatnot, but come on - pitch black?
So the question is... why are there no visible stars?
Please excuse my ignorance on the issue. When it comes to space I know little to nothing.

And to the person who mentioned the flag seemingly wafting about, wasn't that proven to be air conditioning or cooling fans in the astronauts back pack?

Sorry for my crappy English, but you don't seem to understand that you have just given proof that the OP's UFO was indeed an actual object. What I'm saying is:
1. You showed us a freeze frame of the live feed with the object in it.
2. There is the OP's pic that was taken on the moon with a camera and the object is at the same spot as the live feed.
Conclusion: the object is not a lense flare, but a real object. I hope my statement makes sense.

Astronaut Edwin E. Aldrin, Jr., lunar module pilot of the first lunar landing mission, poses for a photograph beside the deployed United States flag during Apollo 11 Extravehicular Activity (EVA) on the lunar surface. The Lunar Module (LM) is on the left, and the footprints of the astronauts are clearly visible in the soil of the Moon. Astronaut Neil A. Armstrong, commander, took this picture with a 70mm Hasselblad lunar surface camera. While astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin descended in the LM the "Eagle" to explore the Sea of Tranquility region of the Moon, astronaut Michael Collins, command module pilot, remained with the Command and Service Modules (CSM) "Columbia" in lunar-orbit.

A skeptic would say: comet.
It certainly does not look like a comet, it is round, see the big images here, here, here and here. Does not comets have tails?

2). someone forgot to turn off the light blub in the studio
As for why it's not in ALL the pics ....hmmm..yea.. it's NASA.....
The fact that there is a similar-looking spot on the astronaut himself makes me think both spots aren't really there.
