First, thanks for finally getting around to my questions I asked a week and a half ago.
There is only one reasonable explanation for this light-scatter phenomenon. The intensly bright areas have to be major population areas which appear
to be constantly illuminated. The source of the power for this artificial lighting has to be provided by electricity.
reasonable explanation"? And the explanation you offer, you consider to be reasonable?
As eriktheawful has said the moon does not emit or produce light on its own it only reflects light . There are no artificially illuminated areas
visible during new moons or by telescope viewing or satellite imagery.
Then you say you even know what enregy source they use to do this illuminating of these population centers...electricity. IF there were people living
on the moon ( there aren't) and IF they had artificial lighting on all the time (they don't), you still wouldn't be able to tell what energy source
they were using to power those lights just by looking at some photographs.
The scientific world tell us that there is no atmosphere on the moon and the only people who have been in the atmosphere are the Apollo astronauts.
The problem here is that the astronauts had no idea whether there is an atmosphere or what the atmosphere comprised of as they were wearing space
suits and air was provided by respirators.
As to whether there is an atmosphere on the moon, it is entirely possible to determine if there is one or not. Simple how the light reflects
off the surface can tell you many things.
And once again, as eriktheawful has said, many things would behave differently on the moon if it had an atmosphere.
Plus, for a body to hold an atmosphere around it, that body must have enough mass to create enough gravity to hold the atmosphere around it. The moon
has very little gravity, and if it was possible to hold any sort of atmosphere it would be very thin and shallow, easily blown away by the solar wind
because the moon does not have a magnetosphere.
