And still they refuse to listen. Too busy caught up in their little theories for which they think are clever. This case was closed conclusively by Soboro and yet some of you are still debating over whether a piece of debris caught in a lens is actually a base on the moon. No wonder they don't take us seriously.

I vote that the same group that sent a balloon up and took a picture from space of the earth redirect their camera to the moon this time.
Or what about one of those big telescopes that sets on top of a mountain, isin't their one in Arizona by Flagstaff somewhere?
Excellant find s&f

hmm, just noticed something, not sure if anyone posted this in other threads as i dont have time to go through all of them but...
when you switch to the "lunar orbiter mosaic" imagery taken back in 1960's, the thing disappears, it's only visible in the "visible imagery" which, if i understand it correctly, was taken in 90's...
not sure if this is caused by lower resolution or because it was put there only recently... whatever it is.

2. How accurate are the maps?
Because the Moon is so far away, it is hard to measure exactly where things on it are. The Visible and Elevation layers were created using images and data that were aligned to the
The Unified Lunar Control Network 2005, the most up-to-date understanding of exactly where things are on the Moon, created by the experts at the U.S. Geological Survey. These maps are designed for mission planning, but they will probably still need to be updated once the next generation of lunar mapping satellites arrive at the Moon. The Charts layer includes maps that were made before these updated coordinate systems existed, and so the positions of features in the charts are only approximate. The high-resolution maps used in the Apollo layer are similarly approximate.
3. Can I see the Moon data using the Google Earth client?
Not yet, but we're working on it.
4. Where did all this data come from?
The data used to create the Visible and Elevation layers, as well as some of the high-resolution maps used in the Apollo layers, are courtesy of the U.S. Geological Survey.
Much of the rest of the material for the Apollo layer is derived from NASA's Apollo Lunar Surface Journal. The USGS Geologic Atlas of the Moon, the Lunar Chart (LAC) Series, and some Apollo imagery are provided by the Lunar and Planetary Institute, managed by USRA.

Google moon 19 58 48.31 N 21 11 35.57 E (on version 5.x) has been brought up in 3 previous posts about moon anomolies and whilst everyone has an opinion regarding some odd shaped moon rock that may or may not be say, a trans dimensional galactic battle cruiser, an old alien space base, space mining or for all I know Elvis' grave, everyone appears to body serve explaining this nearly 300m long do-da.
And if Nasa can point to a pixel or 2 and go "Lcross crash!" then this has to be well worth a look and discussion.
I'm not going to post a pic as it's already on ATS (do a search with the co-ords) , but I'd like you to look at this via Google and feel the WTF and FFS as you zoom in.
