'So far, mission scientists haven't offered any indication as to the nature of the colored substance and have said only that it is "gel-like" and has an "unusual color."'

Isn't this usually where the horror movie starts getting interesting? Cue the suspense music...

'One possible explanation, outside researchers suggested, is that the substance is melt glass created from meteorites striking the surface of the moon.'

Yeah, sure. :P

The most recent reports are that no photos of the goo (gel-like substance) have been released yet. Only photos of the crater itself from a distance. Some opinions are that it may be a glass-like material that formed by heat from the impact that formed the crater. The crater looks pretty small, maybe a couple of feet or so wide.
