For the record, I normally don't get very excited about every supposed anomolous object people think that they see in any given NASA photo of the
moon or Mars. In reality, I either can't see what they're talking about because they're just trying too hard to see something that isn't there to
start with or they are misidentifing a rock.
However, I've lately read the most recent installment of the Richard Hoagland series of books about Mars and the moon. I'm not doing a book review
here, so I'll skip to the chase. There was one photo from the moon (Apollo 17) that I thought was especially intriguing, so I downloaded the photo
and had a closer look. After a bit of brightening to better bring the object into view, I, now, must admit that there appears to be a real tangible
object in the photo that has no business being on the moon. The photo catalog number is AS17-136-20767 and I downloaded it from
Here is the original version (object in upper left hand quadrant barely visible just above the hillside)
Here is the slighty brightened version
And here is a cropped version that shows a closer view of the object
To me this looks like something (a metal beam of some type?) leaning against the distant hillside. I'm not 100% sure of the scale, but whatever that
thing is it's at least hundreds of feet long and maybe thousands.
