This kinda stuff really gets my imagination going - I found this really crazy off the wall movie on Netflix a while ago called Lunopolis with summarizing VERY quickly goes into the idea that there are a bunch of time travelers living on the moon. It then goes on to basically say that a ton of very famous people throughout humankinds history were actually these time travelers - people like, Benjamin Franklin and Nicola Tesla, etc... anyway it's a pretty unbelievable story but I really liked the way the guys who made it did it - it's kinda like a "science fiction Blair Witch" or something, with people walking around filming things going on with their camcorders....
Then of course there's just simply Moon - ironically, almost came out in 2009, where an astronaut winds up being trapped inside of a moon base with it's A.I. system, voiced by non-other than Kevin Spacey (lol)
And then, Apollo 18 which "reveals the reason the U.S. has never returned to the moon."

It could be an image artifact caused by static discharge in the camera .
A bright, lightning-like feature is found on a small number of images. This type of blemish is the result of a spark caused by static discharge. As the film moves through the camera system (see Figure 1), static charge is built up and, when discharged, an image of the spark is captured by the film. These features typically originate at the edge of the image and branch inward. The sizes vary greatly, from small, discrete bright spots (Figure 3A), to encompassing an entire half of a Metric image (Figure 3B). In the affected images, the spark may take on many different forms, several examples are given below. This list is by no means inclusive of all the "spark" images.

Looking at the way it blends in and out of the entire image I'm inclined to believe it's either a reflection or some other sort of super imposed image.
Well all panorama images of the moon like those are a composition of super-imposed images. It looks like some sort of camera artifact to me, but who really knows... might be an alien base, might not be.
I am in no way an expert but the images containing artifacts gortex posted have the 'artifacting' on the edges of the images.
For four days every month the Moon passes through the magnetic field of the Earth and parts of the lunar surface are charged with static electricity. Dr. Mike Hapgood of the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory will present a model at the Royal Astronomical Society National Astronomy Meeting in Preston, which suggests that this charging may increase after the year 2012 and become an important issue for future lunar explorers.

That's pretty trippy! I can't imagine what the heck that is! Waiting for Phage.

Incredible, I wonder what it could be, almost look like lightning surrounding a alien craft
