I apologize if someone asked or stated this already, but is that crater archimedes?
Also interesting pic of it on p. 770 of this: articles.adsabs.harvard.edu...

Another try for the wikipedia link:
en.wikipedia.org...

It certainly isn't natural.


I looked at it and thats the first thing I thought, it's fake. It could be real, if it's not fake then it's an artificial structure for sure, but I think its fake.

im thinking it's fake... It just seems that the camera is very shaky and when it move back and forth it seem co cover a large percent of the lunar surface

It was cleverly done (it must be otherwise there's a lot of gullible people here).

But as posted before, the fact that there's no amtospheric distortion gave it away for me. That and it seems far too clear to be real!

Give me a high resolution image of the moon, a license of Photoshop and one of After Effects and I give you a video like that in two hours or less.

On a second thought a high resolution picture of the moon and a license of After Effects would suffice.

Until further evidence is provided I'm not buying it.

I call hoax. The shadow looks too long, but it is in the right direction.

This is just tragic. As if cameras on a craft would move just like a camera in a human hand. I don't get why people make these hoaxes. But if your gonna do it. Do it with style and real terror. I mean isnt that what we want? a real action horror?

The crater is definitely Archimedes, in the southeast part of Mare Imbrium. North is to the left, east is up, south is to the right and west is down. The image was taken mid-morning at this location. The lighting and shadow on the "building" are basically correct for the location and time-of-day.

Archimedes is ~83 km across and is easily visible with modest telescopes. The shadowed crater to the right (south) of the "building" is Bancroft, which is 13 km across. The "building" would therefore be ~25-30 km long and ~4-5 km wide. It too would be easily visible to most amateur telescopes.

I'm calling it a hoax.

The bottom pic is a still from the youtube video and the top is a picture from the wikipedia page on the archimedes crater. I don't see the rectangle in the wikipedia pic. Hoax?

I'm with Ophiucus and Lost Artistic. The camera wobbles about like a hand-held, inches from a 2-dimensional photo. That seems to happen a lot in YouTube 'Sydney Opera house on the Moon' videos.
It's the anomaly equivalent of shaky cardboard backdrops in low budget soap operas.
Added to which there's no location or NASA image reference given.
they couldn't even come up with a halfway decent anomaly! Rectangles are easy, and boring!

ExposeMagic — April 24, 2010 — Spotted this strange structure on the moon. Imaged with Skynyx 2.1 on Meade 12" sct with Astronomik IR filter.

zairman well if anyone would even read what he used to film this with, you would understand the reason for the video movement. Do your own research before calling something fake. 3 3 hours ago


Skynyx 2.1 (Scroll down)

Meade 12"

Astronomik IR filter

At first I thought it was a hoax but after seeing this post below, I wanted to take a second look:

Well gosh. I guess that settles it. He says he used a 12" Meade. Game over.


Must have been very good seeing that night. Not a hint of atmospheric distortion.

99.99% of these type of videos on YouTube are bull#. Using my powers of statistics I determine this as a fake. YouTube UFO videos should be banned from being linked on ATS.

your childish attempt at trolling reminds me of a very old episode of The Simpsons

But, since Youtube exists solely from the stupidity of poeple posting their worthless garbage there in hopes of becoming the next clown made fun of on Tosh.0, it becomes impossible to find the actual video, so we'll have to settle for a clip:


Doug: In episode 2F09, when Itchy plays Scratchy's skeleton like a
xylophone, he strikes the same rib twice in succession, yet he
produces two clearly different tones. I mean, what are we to
believe, that this is some sort of a [the three nerds chuckle]
magic xylophone or something? Boy, I really hope somebody got
fired for that blunder.
June: Uh, well, uh...
Homer: I'll field that one. Let me ask you a question. Why would a
man whose shirt says "Genius at Work" spend all of his time
watching a children's cartoon show?
Doug: [embarrassed pause] I withdraw my question. [starts eating a
candy bar]

There are obviously telescopes that can see these kinds of images. Can you go into your local walmart and buy one?

No.

But show me where i claimed you could, and then you'll have a valid argument.

Until then, you're contributing nothing what so ever. Go back under your bridge.


This is a hoax.

and your use of "wtf" makes me laugh. As if we were in some sort of 3rd graders video game.

Come on Man.

Are you serious? Really? You can't look at this footage and see that it is nothing but a camera that someone is scanning over a model of the moon and there is what apperas to be a model bus on it? This is just getting rediculous now.
Epic fail!

Idunno, its hard to say here.

There is atmospheric distortion if you look closely. The image wobbles and distorts as a real telescope would.

As for people wondering why there is no object there in the wikipedia pics? Well, maybe the object just got there? Maybe its a UFO hovering over the moon? Who knows...

Its probably a fake. There is one thing that is interesting and that is the blurriness of the image when he zooms in. But that could be due to the camera he's using.

All im saying here is lets not jump to conclusions either way.
