I posted this earlier on the Alien/UFO forum recently. I was advised by many to also put it here. So here it is....

Here’s a pic of the famous Copernicus crater on the Moon. On the far side there seems to be a massive tower! Check out the enlargement and you’d be able to clearly see it.

Here’s the image enlarged…



Is it a geological formation or an artificial tower?

The next set of pics in the same area seem to show a fairly large artificial looking construction resembling drilling equipment. I have added a little extra contrast to both images. Again, does it look natural? As for me, I have an open mind!



Enlarged….

Amazing photos. These are the kind that NASA declines to comment on. Right behind the anomaly on the floor of the crater, I also notice some sort of rectangular structures. Good one mike.

Yeufo, is this the one you noticed? Another tower-like structure. Check it out!



Cheers!

What is the source of those pictures? Are they from the special lunar set from John Lear? You can see I lot of funny things in Lear's photos.

That's because John Lear's photos were taken, developed and released before NASA airbrushed the anomalies out. You don't see them in photos nowadays because they're heavily sanitized and all these little anomalies are carefully removed before they are released to the public

Thanks! I already knew that. You must trust him, even if it would be great to have the originals to do a bit of comparison. Things I saw in crater Copernicus made me lost my sleep for days.

Looks like another good find that NASA failed to airbrush this time. Nice find.

nice find mike

funny im not really surprised by these anomalies anymore. at least not as surprised as i used to be when i first started reading about them

I have a hard time trusting anyone 100%. I think John Lear is genuine. What I mean is, I believe that he believes in what he says. I don't think he's a disinfo agent and I don't think he's desperate for attention. I don't think he has any mental disorders or anything like that. I think he's an honest, sincere individual with impressive credentials that we all should respect him for, regardless of their stance on his opinions.

Do I think John Lear is right about everything? No way, no one is right about everything. However, until I started researching him, I believed the moon was a cold, dead world. Now, I believe it's alive and occupied. That much I'm very confident in.

Keep these pics coming. That's a pretty darn convincing pic of the possible "tower." I read recently that Space Adventures is beginning to compose a list of people they will take AROUND THE MOON IN ORBIT! That means civilians may soon (in the next few decades) be able to visit the moon. That'll open a whole new can of worms for sure.

Here's the source of the 'tower' pic. From the 'horses mouth'! That's NASA itself! Probably they forgot to airbrush/tamper with this image before they shoved it on the net.

Heck! Their airbrushers need to be sacked! OK, here's the untouched original from..

I just don't know, I could never get into these Where's Waldo moon shots. I can't really see anything in any of those pictures. A white blob 20ish pixels high could be just about anything, especially when there is nothing in the scene to gauge size and distance by. As for the drilling equipment, I'm thinking that odd white formation is not much more than a ridge or something in the crater, and I'll tell you why.

Going with rough figures, we can make an informed guess as to how large that object is. Copernicus is 93km wide. I grabbed the large image of the crater that you linked, and the crater is 730 pixels wide. Rounding that out, we get roughly 800px equaling 100 real world kilometers. Now, the enlarged image showing the "drilling rig" is about 4x the resolution of the larger image, as eyeballed by me with both images open together. This means that the enlargement is sitting at roughly 3200px equaling 100km. Now, the "rig" is pretty near 25px tall in that image, putting it at 0.78km tall, or 780m. Which is just over 2560ft, or 256 stories tall. This is almost twice as tall as Taipei 101, the tallest building in the world.

Now you can jump on these figures all you want as evidence stating how massive this alien structure truly is, but one detail is left out. How could a structure, a massive, half mile high drilling complex, not cast a shadow in a flat-bottomed, well-lit crater?

You may be correct regarding the gigantic dimensions one can found there. But I guess that, if even that particular structure with its bright color is hardly visible on the distance, its shadow is harder still to spot.

That's ridiculous. The sunlight in the shot is coming from in front of the camera, off to the right, meaning the shadow of this huge structure would be behind it and to the left, in between the camera and the structure, making it fully visible in the photo. Just because something blends in with its background doesn't mean its shadow will miraculously do the same.

As I said before, the resolution used doesn't help much. I can see a bright spot afar because something is reflecting the light that's coming from the right. Period. I tried to zoom-in and got only a grainy image. I know, you're correct, that must be a shadow on the left of the reflecting object, but I believe is too much to maintain that there is none or otherwise it's visible. You assume there is none. I'm only saying that I'm in doubt.


Note.: I'm talking about the first photo. It seems you're talking about the next. Sorry.

Amazing Photo's there.

It is often considered by conspiracy theorist that on the dark side of the moon there is a base which is run by a secret organization in the US.

Could this be a possibility?

I agree, you will see what ever you want to see.....As for a tower, and a rock drilling machine.. err... .... hey wait is that the virgin mary's face in the left corner of the picture?

Holy CRAP!

Ah, if you're talking of the first photo then yes, it would probably be impossible to see any shadow, given the object's position on the horizon. In that we're in agreement.

Some good obsevations here regarding the shadows and the size of the objects.

Now where on earth are you, John? I wonder what you have to say to this?

Cheers!

Maybe on vacation!?? It's hot damn summer...
I haven't seen him posting since 3 days allready.
Anyway it could be very good if ATS could involve or invite some more Conspiracy UFO masters here to have some more "credible" opinions...!

Copernicus Crater as photographed by Hubble Space Telescope.

There are a couple of anomalies that I have tried to highlight previously. I am going to try again. Both anomalies are just within the rim of Copernicus crater at the 10/11 oclock position and the other at 2 oclock.

Here is the link :
