Finally, SETI Checking The Moon for Alien Evidence...

The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) has been searching the heavens for intelligent life since 1984. Close to 30 years later, they are now aiming their sites to our closest neighbor.... our own Moon (FINALLY... duh). 
Indeed, due to the moon's pristine environment, any modification of lunar surface features will remain preserved for eons -- the lack of an atmosphere means features are not eroded away. Unless intelligent aliens came, saw and then covered their tracks, perhaps they left something as basic as a footprint for us to find. If these hypothetical aliens are advanced enough to traverse the vast distances between the stars, and ifthey decided to pay the Earth-moon system a visit over the past few million years, they may have used the lunar surface as an ideal observation post.
Some speculate if there is any evidence it would most likely be in the form of an abandoned craft, moon base or simply tracks/footprints left from a previous visit... sounds logical, right?
