That's not the "real" photo, that is another photo, taken with a lower resolution, when the probe was at a higher orbit.

EVEN WHEN obvious things are put up, we get the idiot posts....YES!!! I said it! IDIOT posts (and I am not naming names....we all can see for ourselves...)
OK...I will get flamed for this....but I take the criticsm proudly....because SOMEONE needs to say it.
Flaming arrows to my chest...let the fly now.....

Does anyone remember the Fox special they had on whether or not we really went to the moon? Why would they air something like that when you have pictures like these?
It is a known fact that there was a government film studio in Houston around the same time as the Apollo missions though. It's almost as if NASA had a contingency in case they were not able to land on the moon.
The satellite is about 380000 km away from us. It is about 50 km above the surface of the Moon.
Two narrow-angle cameras on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) will make high-resolution, black-and-white images of the surface, capturing images of the poles with resolutions down to 1 meter (about 3.3 feet). A third, wide-angle camera (WAC), will take color and ultraviolet images over the complete lunar surface at 100-meter (almost 330-foot) resolution. These images will show polar lighting conditions, identify potential resources and hazards, and aid selection of safe landing sites. The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC), developed at Arizona State University in Tempe.

so we can see this "thing" but couldn't see the lunar detonations?

If there are satellites that can read license plates from earth orbit, assuming that's not a myth, why is half-meter resolution the best imagery we have of the moon?
By the way, anyone who says that dark dot is a flag is making a leap of faith.

What are the most likely options, that being a natural outcrop of the lunar landscape, or a spaceship from a nearby planet?
entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem to you all!
Nonsense, we know exactly where the flag should have been. Had it appeared somewhere else we would have known something was wrong. It's not as simple as seeing a "dark dot" just anywhere; it must meet a very strict criteria and standard of evidence, which is why "faith" has nothing to do with it at all.
