SUPER "TLP" CAPTURED IN CHINESE MOON PHOTOS AS "RAINBOW UFO" BUZZED CHINESE LUNAR LANDER "CHANG E 3" ON XMAS EVE 2013
CHINESE LUNAR PHOTOS REVEAL AN INEXPLICABLE "SUPER TLP"

WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT???
SUPER "TLP" CAPTURED IN MOON PHOTOS AS "RAINBOW UFO" BUZZED CHINESE LUNAR LANDER "CHANG E 3"
CHRISTMAS EVE On The MOON - 2013
"TLP" is a NASA acronym for:
Transient Lunar Phenomon
However, as readers will see below...
This Transient Lunar Phenomenon was not really so "Transient"!

Chang'e 3 Data: Lander Terrain Camera
Credit for these images goes to Chinese Academy of Sciences / China National Space Administration / The Science and Application Center for Moon and Deep Space Exploration.
See also the Rover Panoramic Camera (PCAM) data.
These data were downloaded from China's Science and Application Center for Moon and Deepspace Exploration on January 21, 2016.
The Chang'e 3 lander Terrain Camera (TCAM) is a color camera with a CMOS detector, 2352 by 1728 pixels in size, with a Bayer filter array for color.
There appear to be one to three versions of each image, denoted 2A, 2B, and 2C. 2A and 2B are both grayscale, 16-bit images that have not been demosaiced. 2C are color, 8-bit images that have been demosaiced. Wherever a 2C version of an image observation exists, it is shown on this page as a color image, and clicking on the thumbnail will take you to a PNG version of that color image. When there is not a 2C version of an image observation, it is shown on this page as a grayscale image, and clicking on the thumbnail will take you to a PNG version of the 2A image.
Below each thumbnail is a link to each of the available PDS-format versions of each image. The 2A and 2B images appear virtually identical. Wherever there is a 2C (demosaiced) version of the image, I also provide a link to the 2A (grayscale, undemosaiced) version of the image. You may obtain better color results by trying various demosaicing algorithms on the 2A images.
Observation 0011 (December 24, 2013)
All was dark and quiet, another "Silent Night" on the Moon on Christmas Eve 2013, when suddenly and precisely at 17:19:08 UT (Universal Time) on December 24th, 2013, at approximately 1:16 p.m. Eastern Time Zone in the US, a brilliant light radiated and passed over and across the Sinus Iridium (or "The Bay of Rainbows"), situated in the northernmost region of the Mare Imbrium (also called "The Sea of Rains").
As to the celestial event of Christmas Eve 2013, 17:16:12 UT, nothing could be more appropriate than "Silent Night" to describe the scene at that very moment in the Sinus Iridium (The Bay of Rainbows) where China's Lunar Lander, Chang E 3 had settled to release its rover, JuTu (Jade Rabbit) to begin exploring the local lurain.
Then suddenly, less than 3 minutes later at precisely 17:19:08 (UT), the entire region was illuminated as if in daylight, when a huge and brilliant light suddenly emerged, as if from nowhere, flooding the area in a supernal iridescent light, brilliantly illuminating the entire region.
The resplendent light endured and it moved slowly over and across the landing site where Chinese lander Chang e, named after a Chinese demigoddess, and its rover, the "Jade Rabbit" (JuTu) recorded its passage in digital imagery.
After the RAINBOW UFO'S Passage ...
ALL RETURNS BACK INTO DARKNESS
At the moment that I saw these photos, he first thing that I said was:
"God! What the Hell was THAT? ...
And More questions remain!
"What the Hell was THAT?"

Author's Note to the Noteworthy
Wm. Michael Mott wrote:
Looks like a lens flare. There's usually a prism inside of every electronic camera that can produce that effect, if the light hits it just right. Even if from a micro-meteor burning up (the moon has a slight atmosphere).
Robert Morningstar: I might have agreed except that a micrometeorite would not take 6 minutes and 4 seconds to traverse that quadrant of sky, it would pass in an instant.
As can be seen, the Chang e lander took photos approximately every 2 seconds. That 6 minute trek is so slow that a meteorite traveling at such a slow velocity would not incandesce, especially in the rarified atmosphere.
The real mystery for me remains not what the refracting agent was, but "What was the source of the slowing moving light?" Another explanation could be that the object is an orbiting satellite of high reflectiivity and immense size that reflected sunlight at the camera. The final photo gives us a clear idea of its quadrangular-cornered (not round) structure. It also suggests that the object changed course and came closer to the Chinese lander than it was in the first 6-7 photos. There is a lot to study and to learn from analyzing these 9 remarkaable photographs.
The time element alone (6 minutes 4 seconds elapsed) eliminates the Sun and meteors as a cause. ->M*
Hearkening back to his earlier statement when Wm. Michael wrote:
William Michael Mott You have no way of knowing how close the light source was, what it was, or how it moved in order to cast the refraction. This is a digital camera artifact, nothing more.
