I recently came across an amateur astronomers video on youtube. He seems to have spoted something dare I say, amazing. Some comments on the video are saying its a crater however my (very much tired) eyes cant see it. what you guys think?

says the video is no longer available however you can still view it by direct link here:

Video Link

Its not hard to miss. Seems to be a four legged structure casting a massive shadow on the moons surface.

For those that cant view the video (which I suggest all try to) here is a frame from the video:

Yeah for some strange reason it wont play through the forums. So you will have to go to the link.

Hmm... Wonder what that is.

It does look like a structure of somekind, most be quite big also.

Does not look like a natural moon rock

tha is amazing.
i'd like to see this debunked...

Very interesting find there. I'll wait for one of the experts or more experienced users to post their thoughts. But for me, the shadow doesn't seem to match the structure? The structure seems very square and the shadow looks more circular. Could be just the moon's surface making the shadow odd but I don't know.

If it is indeed an object then it must be immense, reminds me of John Lear`s structures on the moon.

Excellent find!
I am dubious about the camera shakes, (sort of film of a film!)
However this is a grab of what we are talking about, it must be ginormous!

I don't see anything out of the ordinary, as I haven't seen when this was first posted sometime ago.

If I can find it I will post a link to it.

It looks like a portaloo....

Im flabergasted it looks like a structure....

Any one here able to use photo shop to change contrast highlight or zoom?

Unless I'm totally blind, the shadows are going the wrong way for this to be a vertical structure. Its shadow is going toward the left and down a bit, while the light seems to be coming from the right and down a bit. The shadows just don't match up with those on the craters.

It's Clavius Crater.

Its an amazing picture at first glance, and second too:-) However
only the shadows know which direction the illumination is sourced.
1. Its a Niphilim Tardis
2. As previous said Instead of a door with a Moon Its a Loo on the Moon
3. Its a real structure on the moon and NASA or whomever photoshopped all the shadows in the craters to make it look like an anomaly
4. Its a creation of light and shadows
I tend toward 4.

Hi Internos,
Do you think it is photoshopped!
(Now you see it, now you don't!)
Congrats btw - well deserved acolade from Springer!

I was all for this being some crazy temple or mining operation. But I went through some filtering and adjusting in photoshop and I now think it might be craters and a prominence of their rims. Here's a quick outline of what I'm talking about. Hey, if anything I hope I'm wrong, but I can see it being craters.

The white line is the outer crater rim. The red circles are where various craters may be and the green lines attempt to show the height of the rims, and how this produces shadows.

EDIT: ...spend a few minutes in photoshop and everybody solves it...

Looks like something that shouldnt be there given the land scape.
I thought it looked like a giant stonhenge type struture.

whats the person useing to look at the moon?
Any one else seen this with the same equipment?
Where can i buy this telescope to get that good a view?
Is it expensive?
Does any one know if we have satelites that can take pictures of the dark side of the moon?

Hi Internos,

Hi havalon, and thank you for your kind words.
What we can do is to look at better res photographs of the same area.
And it's PLENTY of photographs from Clavius.
Now this video doesn't say so much, because the resolution, (of course) is neither the one of a LO nor the one of some Apollo mission (not to mention Clementine): it's an Earth-based telescope.

By the way this is a video of a thing that i capture with meade lx 200 gps 10inc telescope on yhe moon seems to me
standing on its four legs it is the darkest obeject in the video I dont think you can miss it

IMHO, what i see is actually a more or less squared shaped object,
most likely a shadow, pheraps something else: but this resolution is far from being a source of reliable informations...
i love the Moon, but i'm looking forward to the whole Jaxa TC dataset to be released.
That will allow us to look at some 10 meters res pictures, and, then,
pheraps we'll be able to SPOT something out of the ordinary, who knows?

Now, about the video: what are we supposedly looking at?

This was a guy filming Clavius, right like some other thousands people in the world, scientists/astronomers included: i'd guess that what we see is just an odd-shaped shadow.
But i may be wrong.

Nicely done internos.
Oh what our eyes can see and not see. That shadow played a nice trick. Illusion at it's best. I really hope that people try every angle and do research on pictures before jumping to conclusions or illusions I should say. At the right angle pictures can be very deceiving. Like those sidewalk chalk drawings. Which are anamorphic illusions.

Thank you internos for the correct picture and angle of Clavius Crater.

Almost forgot!! Star for you internos.

Clavius!! Why did it have to be Clavius!! (well replace Clavius with snakes)

Clavius and 2001: A Space Odyssey

In both the film and novel versions of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Clavius is the site of a lunar settlement known as Clavius Base. Most of the Base is located underground. It is to here that Dr. Heywood Floyd goes to learn more about the discovery of an alien artifact referred to as TMA-1 (Tycho Magnetic Anomaly 1) at the nearby crater Tycho. Following his meeting with officials at Clavius, Floyd departed for Tycho in a Moonbus.

What does Sir Arthur C Clarke know and when did he know it?

PS - I also am amazed with the knowledge and perseverence of Internos

The object comes into view at about 1 minute and onwards, you can clearly see it. Looks like a massive square structure. Not sure exactly what it could be, but it could be photo shopped.
Watch further into the video, the subject filming zooms further in with the telescope he is using (meade lx 200 gps 10inc telescope )
