Interesting animated gifs!

Evidently I didn't see all LRO's images of Apollo sites, because I recognized only few frames.

For what it's worth, you have to take the idea that "UV light will surely destroy the nylon" with a grain of salt-- I've never seen anyone say for certain whether UV light can destroy nylon in a vacuum.

Good call. Many of the corrosive forces that take place on the surface of the Earth, rely on oxidation. Degradation by UV is a form of sloww cooking.
Lets say the flags have survived? That can be a big plus for future Moon exploration. We could use 'plastic' habitats and machines and be confident
that they can survive the harsh Lunar enviroment. Gotta take a closer look!
