This image is an overexposed 44x enlargement of Lunar Orbiter frame LO-III-84-M. Taken with the medium resolution camera at a distance of at least 250 miles, it shows an object dubbed by Hoagland the "Shard". The star-like object above the "Shard" is a camera registration mark. The "Shard" has a shadow cast in the correct direction for it to be a real object on the Moon and is aligned with the local vertical rather than the grain of the film, decreasing the chance it is an emulsion abnormality. Close-ups reveal a cellular-like internal structure. Above and behind the "Shard" is the "Tower", a massive 7 mile high structure with a central "cube" suspended by a tripod like base. Enhancements of the "Tower" show a similar cellular construction to the "Shard", but with a distinctly hexagonal pattern.
This extraordinary object comes from AS10-32-4822, an Apollo hand held Hasselblad photo. The "Castle" is extremely bright and plainly visible at normal magnification, making it nearly impossible for the astronaut taking the picture to have missed it. This UNENHANCED version of it shows the remarkable stacking of it's segments and belies a natural explanation, especially when you consider it is hanging several miles high in the Lunar sky. EM enhancements show a supporting structure, including a drooping cable passing through the tip, like a suspension bridge.
This enigmantic object from frame AS10-32-4822 is literally hanging some seven miles above the Lunar surface. This side by side comparison is from 2 different versions of the same Apollo 10 photographic frame, one obtained by Hoagland and the other by another researcher. In fact, Hoagland has now identified some nine versions of this photo in various archives around the world. Evidently part of "power winder" sequence of photo's taken by the Astronauts, this allows for posititve verification of the reality of this object. Not only does the "Castle" change position relative to the spacecraft - exactly as a real suspended object would - strange, glass-like "panes" evidently pass between the spacecraft and the "Castle". This is strong confirmation of a "glass" dome in the Sinus Medii region of the Moon. Note also in the enhanced image on the right a "cable" passing thru the tip of the "Castle". It droops under the weight of this object, precisely as a real suspension cable would. The unenhanced version on the left corroborates the cellular structure of the "Castle".
The largest lunar mountain range, the Apennines, and the prominent crater Archimedes dominate this part of the Moon close to the prime meridian. It was at the foot of the Apennines, close to Rima Hadley, that the Apollo 15 expedition landed. The object was reported by a Mr. Darling as, platform size 5 miles long, 1 mile wide, Elevation 5,000 ft.

True skeptic, could u elaborate about your challenge? As to more anomalies there are hundreds, possibly even thousands. Some anomalies though I chose not to post here for a variety of reasons. Most of them were of unusall shapes, etc that I felt werent up to par of being even remotely something. I am not an expert in topographical analysis though. As to the object moving up hill, one of the astronauts (I cant recall which) said he saw a light moving on the surface and when they imaged it this was the result. It looks like a rock, but how in the hell is it moving up that hill. The track pattern indicates either that A) Its not spheroid or B) Its changing directions slightly. I mean wtf on this one.
EsoTeach, not sure what you are getting at? In regards to our moon it does not spin on its axis; hence darkside of the moon
The Moon is in synchronous rotation, meaning that it keeps the same face turned to the Earth at all times. This synchronous rotation is only true on average because the Moon's orbit has definite eccentricity. When the Moon is at its perigee, its rotation is slower than its orbital motion, and this allows us to see up to an extra eight degrees of longitude of its East (right) side. Conversely, when the Moon reaches its apogee, its rotation is faster than its orbital motion and reveals another eight degrees of longitude of its West (left) side. This is called longitudinal libration.

Yea, unfort I don't think anyone of us have access to the size telescope needed to confirm some of the anomalies.
