Hello,

Just found this via Rense.com



An Apollo photo enhancement by RDM* (above) reveals the mysterious shape of "The Sentinel," a massive object photographed in orbit on the far side of the Moon by Apollo 10.

Pic Here

Any thoughts real/fake

Cheers

if its in orbit, why is it never seen on the 'light' side of the moon? That is, the side always shown to Earth?

Well it could be in synchronis (sp) orbit,that could explain it.

I'm not a photo expert but that pic looks really bad. Also isn't the back side of the moon completely dark all the time? Even if there was a satalite behind our moon in orbit it would be impossible to see. And with a quick couple of searches I haven't been able to verify that pic. However, Robert D Morningstar (profile) is a pretty well respected author and is an editor of UFO Digest. He seems to have pretty good credability.

So pretty much I'm on the fence and trying to keep an open mind. That pic just doesn't look right to me.

I dont think you quite understand what geosynchronous orbit or "the dark side of the moon" actually means. You can not be in geosynchronous orbit around a heavenly body that has no rotation. Thats not an orbit. Thats just stationary.

If it were to be in an orbit that was constantly hidden from the earth, the object in question would actually need to be in an orbit around the earth that matched the moons orbit.

As for the dark side... Please look it up.

I think this was already discussed on here.

If memory serves, it was debunked as a rip on the photo....further, I believe the pic was taken of a Moon Poster on someones wall and that "object" was a rip in the poster.

I could be wrong but you may want to search ATS.

Thats not really correct either. It takes the Moon the same amount of time to rotate around once as it does for the Moon to go around the Earth once. Therefore, Earth-bound observers can never see the 'far-side' of the Moon. It is not stationary, it is constantly rotating... so maybe you oughta look it up there chiefy chief...

That photo was posted some time ago on ATS, I guess Robert D Morningstar is a little late with his find.


The photo posted on ATS was a better version, and if I remember it well, there are more photos like that.

I will look for that thread.

Edit: This is the oldest (November 2007) post I can find about those photos.

There are three photos that show that "space station": AS10-20-3988, AS10-20-3989, AS10-20-3990

Thanks ArMap. This photo looks much more like a rip in the pic. The quality is also zoomable. And there is also this little bit from NASA:



Command Module Mylar outside the front window. In preparation for a photographic pass over the planned Apollo 11 landing site, the crew re-oriented the Command Module while over the backside of the Moon. After regaining contact with Earth, John Young mentioned at 118:41:31 "This morning when we were turning around, first time, we had (means 'could see') about - I estimate maybe a foot-and-Êa-half or more of Mylar with that insulation coating on the back of it. It would appear out inÊfront of our window, and I guess it was from the top hatch which is where that insulation cameÊfrom in the first place. It Just sort of sat there for a while, and then quietly floated off. But my questionÊis, will this cause us any thermal problems?" The strangely-shaped 'blob' in this image is almost certainly that piece of Mylar, possibly out-of-focus. Scan courtesy NASA Johnson

history.nasa.gov

I'm still not sure... I've never really been comfortable trusting nasa but they claim that it's a piece of Mylar with an insulated coating on it.
