Hi guys! Now I’m not for a moment contending that this IS incontrovertible proof of an artificial structure on the Moon. But after studying it in some detail, it does not appear to be a photographic glitch or a result of pixilation. But then again it could be. The most striking aspect is the dish-like structure on top of the tower!

This image was taken by the Lunar Orbiter and available on the Lunar Planetary Institute web site. The original image is linked below.


Image source: LPI

Mission: Lunar Orbiter 2
Spacecraft Position: Altitude: 52.68 km
Latitude: 3.49°
Longitude: -58.73°

Illumination:
Sun Azimuth: 91.64°
Incident Angle: 80.47°

The structure is toward the middle right of the image. What do you think?

Cheers!

Looks like someone is *beaming up* a hot dog.

Great find...

I hope...

I'll sit back and wait for the debunkers (or not)...

What do you think it's used for, if it is something man made?





...taps...

Thanks for the picture - I always enjoy these.

It appears to me to either be real or an artifact on the film. I assume this is film that was scanned or am I wrong? It does not appear to be an artifact of the scan.

My opinion would be that it would be one of the radio transimitters left on the moon by the apollo astronauts to measure, the intesity of moonquakes, or maybe it is one of the antennae of the many lost rovers to the moon.

Well, there are three explanations listed according to the degree of probability:

1. A photographic glitch.
2. Man made.
3. Alien made.

I feel it's the first, but we don't know for sure. If it's not, then this could be the smoking gun!

Cheers!

Now I am having second thoughts after seeing a object at the top right of the image and near the bottom right.


But what if all was a research equipment stacked on the moon for experimenting.


Considering the fact that the images are directly from LPI, I doubt it they would have uploaded the image to the website in the first place.


So, now whats your opinion.

peacejet, could you paste the images of what you're seeing, here?

Thanx!


Edit to add: Are you meaning those white crosses? Those are reticules within the camera lens.

Yes, thats what I meant, all I wanted to say, would they have posted this image on the LPI website if it contained some unknown object, frankly speaking.


Edit: As you say in the previous post, there is a possiblity of being man made, because if it was alien made wont it be cloaked by their advanced technology.

Interesting image, MikeSingh, thanks for posting. But in my opinion the image is to blurry to draw any conclusions from it. What seems like structures, towers or even antennes in different places in it may be (as you also said) just photographic glitches, fibers or scratches on the film and so on.

There is just no way of telling when the quality of the image is as bad a this. In my opinion.

But perhaps we one day get to see those really hi res images from those Lunar Orbiter tapes in that abandoned McDonalds...

Hi ziggy! Don't bet on that! It's just one big burger! You think those MIBs are gonna let us have an uncensored view of the Moon in all its glory?
Forget it and let's move on!


Cheers!

Ha, you can forget about it all you want. I have no intention of forgetting anything, you evil, evil man!

Ummm why would you sit back and wait for the debunkers AFTER you say a 'great find'


They will only say what they always say.."only rock or photo glitch"

:shk:

GOOD ONE


So lets go with that...

Lunar Orbiter II the one that took this photo... launched November 6, 1966

Apollo 11 'first' lunar landing launched July 16, 1969


By Ckricky you nailed it

Didn't you watch the spiral?... that was to erase your memory... worked for most


The Burger thread should RIP for awhile... trust me on this

It looks like something on the photo that was somewhat smeared.

The fact that we can not see any shadow of "tower" points to a photo glitch, but I don't know what it could be.

PS: no, it's not a rock, not this time.

Yep! That's what I thought at first. But if you look carefully, the shadow (which is as it should be, toward the left of the 'tower') is discernible somewhat. But the 'tower' being not very wide and which apparently looks like it's made up of a couple of thin beams, the shadow would not be more pronounced.

My two bits! By the way, thanks for your assessment of that 'UFO looking object' near the crater!


Cheers!

Thanks Mike...

I see the object in question, at least what would be the top of it...

But the bottom part seems to be transparent. Why would the top be so prevalent, yet the foundation so blurry/transparent...? The photo seems to be taken above it, but from a side angle as well - shouldn't that expose the foundation of the object as well...??

These damn half ass pix....

O.K....I now know what I want santa claus to bring me for xmas - thousands of hires photos of both the moon and mars...and I mean the real santa claus, not the one used as a cover word for our neighbors in the sky...

I viewed the full size image from the link provided in the OP post and it looks to me like there was something on the print when they developed it and it smudged a bit. A small fiber of some sort maybe. In those days they would have had to submerge the paper in a solution and I'm sure it would not take much to smudge the photo. I also noticed a whole lot of white dots on the photo in a pattern similar to graph paper but i'm sure those dots are part of the camera system itself.

Sorry, my intent is not to debunk your findings but it just looks like a small smudge from a fibre or spec of something.

Looks like something tracked across the image, leaving a vertical trail.

How were Lunar Orbiter images processed and transmitted anyway? My 2 cents are that this is a glitch/artefact.

Also, if this is an actual lunar construction, there is no shadow. Also, there are no support structures--it's just sitting out here in the middle of the proverbial nowhere... No shopping centers or spaceports nearby.
