A plume of lunar swamp gas (LSG) that is obviously in the ascendant phase and passing right in front of the distant planet Mars which is exceedingly bright owing to the very low relative angle between the sun, mars and LSG.
The Solar Wind Composition Experiment was performed on Apollo 11, 12, 14, 15, and 16. It consisted of an aluminum foil sheet, 1.4 meters by 0.3 meters, that was deployed on a pole facing the Sun. On Apollo 16, a platinum sheet was also used. This foil was exposed to the Sun for periods ranging from 77 minutes on Apollo 11 to 45 hours on Apollo 16, allowing solar wind particles to embed themselves into the foil. The foil was then returned to Earth for laboratory analysis.

It appears that the "shadow" doesn't line up with the shadows of the other objects in the photo. This shadow maybe the outter most rim of a crater in the distance.

There is no atmosphere on the Moon and this causes very distant objects to appear clearer and closer to the human eye.
The moon is 2000 miles across and this structure is on the horizon many miles away. Thats 6-12 MILES AWAY! Im guessing 500 ft tall and not NATURAL. Please help experts!
...that doesn't look like any ASLEP equipment that I know of.
