Stop grasping at straws. Don't be the boy who cried wolf concerning things otherworldly.
Actually if you think about it looks very familiar. Apollo 16 was one of the later missions it is possible this is an image of a thermo-nuclear explosion in the megaton range. It would make sense that during the Apollo missions someone would want to drop a nuke on the moon just to see its effect. So I am suggesting that what you are seeing at center is what a mushroom cloud would look like on the moon.
It's a forest of static electricity caused by the imaging process

That's pretty trippy! I can't imagine what the heck that is! Waiting for Phage.
In my previous post, I never said it was anything to do with light. I have no idea what it is - except that the tramlines go across the image and run parallel. That makes it appear more likely to be an image artifact which has something to do with the cleaning or scanning process. Maybe it is a reflection of the internals of the scanner? Could be something as mundane as that. I do agree however that the plasma looks other-worldly and hi tech and the protrusions look like they are supporting the plasma tenticles. We have seen this plasma-like or fungus-like tendrils on other apollo images and people have thought they were some kind of alien too.
Maybe look at the actual light source producing those lines before looking at the lines to identify the source
Is it not possible the light source could cause a glare?

For those that truly believe that this is an alien feature, all I can say is that I can't believe our air brush section missed this feature ......just kiddin (or am I).
