There has been photographs like this of the Moon for least 50-60 yrs. It's very exciting tho when you discover about it (I did a few yrs ago), so I can see the "sensational" part.

Where did you find the first image? I've looked around and can't locate it...any links at all please?

I've seen a lot of threads like this, and in every one of them I always wonder, why does the OP assume that the highlighted item is actually a real object and not a photo or scanning artifact?
For that I don't have an explanation, at least not yet.
Strange shadow - I can't pinpoint the source of it though(possible eruption/outgassing? help me out here):
Here is high albedo object with a wobbly trail behind it that looks like a mountain or hill-road - but it is probably just as peculiar boulder trail, if anything:
I think I have seen some of those.
Now check out this one, it is quite colourful. I have never seen a print flaw like it, if that is what it is:
I have never seen any signs of mining or signs of any activity (besides the expected meteor and geological activity), and I think it would be hard to do it without being known.
Some people say that the moon is being mined, or that there is an alien presence on the moon. Could some of the lunar anomalies which are available online be evidence of these things?
I don't think we have ever seen the photos that are really censored (if they exist), the best way is not to publish them.
If NASA censors images as some claim, how did these ones get past? Is it because the truth so weird that they could afford to miss a few anomalies?

There are some very interesting features in them! Our Moon is certainly one heck of a fascinating subject to dig into, isn't it? I also definitely get what you mean about the LO 1 and 4 frames that are not available from the ASU archive (or anywhere else) in high res. I wish they were as well, because there are plenty of those frames that I want to get a closer look at! Plus, for LO 2, 3 and 5, there are a ton of frames in that ASU archive that are not even there and are missing entirely, so those missions have not been fully cataloged there either. It definitely is frustrating, considering we are talking about film shot 45 years ago, before Apollo ever went! You are probably familiar with the LPI "Lunar Orbiter Photo Gallery" archive already, but just in case anyone else is interested in checking that LO archive out as well, here is the link to it. www.lpi.usra.edu... They offer some of the images in larger resolution tif format there (usually downloadable as 14 to 18 meg gzip files I think), but their selection of those HR tif files does not include all the frames, just select ones it seems. It is kinda strange how so many decades after these missions, we still are waiting for complete catalogs of their high res scans of this imagery, and it is not just the LO-series they are holding back on. Many, many frames of film shot through the various camera systems employed during the Apollo missions for example are still not available in high res format anywhere online yet. Thousands of images of the Moon shot by those Apollo flight crews have never been released in the online catalogs in anything larger than 450x450-pixel "large thumbnail" framecaps of the NASA archive images - and I literally mean "framecaps" of the raw NASA archive images, because interestingly, the NASA LPI archive - www.lpi.usra.edu... - did not build their low-resolution online "Apollo Image Atlas" by actually using a scanner to digitize the raw archive frames they show us. Instead, LPI and NASA/JSC admit they constructed their low-res Hasselblad archive by getting the original raw NASA frames and putting them on an easel. They then focused a video camera (a video camera that only had about 700 lines resolution) so it was aimed at each of the NASA archive frames of film. This was the way NASA/JSC digitized the imagery for the LPI online "Apollo Image Atlas", and using this ugly technique, each official archive frame of film from the Apollo Program was just frame-captured using a video camera and turned into a "Targa" format image file - a 24-bit color image with the dimensions of 756 x 486 pixels. Then, NASA/JSC processed that Targa image file down to 640x480 and converted it to a jpeg file, dialing up the compression when they did so. After that, LPI (Lunar & Planetary Institute) took those files from NASA/JSC, cropped them, applied further color alteration and resized them even more, shrinking them to the same final 450x450-pixel size imagery that they still offer us in that archive today. So, I guess that raises the obvious question - does anyone happen to have a scanner that NASA can borrow for a week or two? Very Happy Very Happy My mother just got a new scanner, and it took less than a day for her to scan all of our old family photo albums into digital format (a few thousand images probably), yet the LPI archive is still showing us official Apollo imagery shot four+ decades ago that was not even scanned in - it was just framecapped off a video camera then resized and compressed as a jpg file for God's sake! dohh Anytime I hear skeptics try to defend this kind of stuff, I just have to laugh, because the truth is that it would cost NASA next to nothing to provide us with decent high res scans of all the Apollo imagery if they wanted to. Hell, unpaid interns would be lining up down the hall for an opportunity during summer break to do old archive scanning like this for NASA for free, just so they could put it on a resume! My mom, not the most computer literate of individuals, proved that it certainly is not hard to put an original photographic print into a digital scanner and click a mouse button. If there was really nothing to hide in the Apollo imaging archives, then we would not have a problem finding HR examples of every single frame. Do not swallow the excuses NASA gives, because it is not a question of a lack of money or manpower not being available to do the scanning that is the reason we still do not have a complete HR archive of all the Apollo imagery ever shot during those missions. The reason this evidence is not out there and readily available for anyone to look at is because there are things in many of those HR frames that they simply do not want us to see.
