Well i'm no expert, but looking at the photo i can tell you what it is not. It is not a nude photo of a gorgeous earth woman.

Nasa, and google earth/moon aren't stupid. If this really was something, they wouldn't want you to see. AMIRITE?.
So, you think, multi-billion $$ companies, who have secrets that they haven't told us, would let a image, containing a "rocket part on the moon" slip pass them, and end up on a FREE program, available to EVERYONE in the public, EVERYWHERE around the world.
Do you see were this is going?
I mean really ATS, does everyone on here lack common sense nowadays? I'm not trying to be mean.... but seriously

Welcome. There have been some interesting pictures of the moon in the past year or so. I'm curious as to what's on the dark side of the moon.
I'm not sure it's a collapsed lava tube, it looks like there could be an impact crater at the upper left and another one just to the lower right of it. But it's definitely some sort of valley, instead of a ridge.

It's a rille, a trench. Collapsed lava tube perhaps.
Note how the lighting matches the surrounding craters.
Maybe ATS waived the 20 post requirement? Some people get around the 20 post requirement by posting news (that didn't have a minimum post limit), but you can usually tell if the thread started as a news post and this one doesn't look that way.
And how did the OP manage to start a thread?
I understand how laser altimeters work but are you saying they added a false shadow? They don't make shadows like that do they?
