15.12.2010

Astronomers from Siberia performed optical observations of Earth’s natural satellite and detected a mysterious beam on its surface.

Researchers have performed a digital video recording of the Moon’s night side in order to detect flares, caused by meteorite impacts. They have noticed a diffused, but visible light beam.

The beam has cut the Moon’s surface at an angle of 45 degrees to a terminator, the line between the day and night sides of a planetary body. Nothing is known about the beam’s origin.

I find this very interesting, we already know Russia plans a manned mission to the moon by 2025 and a permanent moon base by 2032, of course Nasa already knows what is there, that's why they aren't so eager to return.

Thanks for the post, very interesting. I have tried to translate the rest of the article but it isn'r great...



On the night of December 14, conducting optical observations of the moon during the peak flight of a meteor shower Geminids, Novosibirsk Astrophysics recorded on video a mysterious beam on its surface, according to RIA Novosti. Scientists were digitally videotaped the unlit side of the Earth's satellite, to fix the flash caused by the meteorite. In the gray misty video stream was visible ray, a few scattered but distinct.





Spatially, he dissected the Moon's surface at an angle of 45 degrees to the terminator - the dividing line is illuminated and unilluminated side of the moon. In the studies, which will continue into the night on 15 and 16 December, will attend the famous Russian astronomer and astrophotographer Alexander Yuferev. In the first half of December, has one of the most active annual meteor showers existing Geminids.

Maybe there is alien activity on the moon right now that can be seen from Earth. From what I know, they usually stay on the other side so we can't see their vast network of bases.

It is difficult if impossible to know exactly what is being described in that account. To the best of my ability after looking up the position of the terminator at midnight on Dec. 15, is that a ray of some sort from the Earth's position would strike the Moon at about a 45 degree angle to its surface in the terminator's area.

Maybe it was a visible light laser fired from Earth and diffused at that distance?

Obviously, we need more data.

The truth about our moon must be very ugly that
we still today have to theorize what they are they hidding from us.
Someting of the things I want to know before
I leave this body is the truth.

Do you think its possible to project a image on the moon and make it appear as if a eclipse is happening?

What color was the beam?

It does sound like it could be related to the moon's terminator, I've read it can be quite volatile due to the sudden change between light and dark.

We need more info!

You can't project darkness.

I had an odd feeling about the moon a few months ago back around the time when people were saying that it had tilted. I can't rationalise it or explain it other than an odd felling that there was something not quite right with the moon at that time. As far as i know it hasn't tilted, but i have no idea why my attention was intensely drawn to it at that time.

Everyone has a profound connection to the moon, I get sad just thinking about it...

No doubt there are nefarious aliens based there. You know, the ones manipulating humanity for centuries.

Soon I hope we can be freed from lunatics and moon cycles, oh the joy it will bring women.

You haven't met my Mother-in-Law have you?

Seriously though, I remember a discussion on past threads about a faint, almost non-existent, atmosphere on the moon that gets agitated by the progression of the "terminator" line. the dividing line between night & day on the moon.
I wonder it this has some effect on the observation.

I wonder if it could be the equipment left behind during our moon missions. We left a reflecting mirror on the surface of the moon for distance measurements. Earth based telescopes can fire a beam at the coordinates, and they will get a return from the relfection. It lets us know the distance the moon is from the earth.


Lunar Laser Ranging Experiments


The ongoing Lunar Laser Ranging Experiment measures the distance between the Earth and the Moon using laser ranging. Lasers on Earth are aimed at retroreflectors planted on the moon during the Apollo program and the time delay for the reflected light to return is determined. Because the speed of light is known with a high degree of precision, the distance to the Moon can be calculated using this simple equation:

Distance = (Speed of light × Time taken for light to reflect) / 2
The distance has been measured with increasing accuracy for more than 35 years. The distance continually changes for a number of reasons, but averages about 384,467 kilometers (238,897 miles). The time delay in the reflected light is about 2½ seconds.


Mythbusters Moon Episode


The Apollo astronauts left behind special equipment on the Moon like reflectors that scientists can bounce lasers off of.

confirmed

The Mythbusters went to an observatory equipped with a high powered laser. They first fired at the bare lunar surface but did not detect the laser bouncing back. Then they pointed the laser at a reflector left behind by NASA and received a confirmed bounce.

Didn't mythbusters do a thing where they bounced a laser of some of the tools they used there?

Anyway, first thing I thought of was 2001: A Space Odyssey. But in the book it was a different wave I think (read it longggg ago).

It's not the reflectors, firstly because the Russian article states they spotted in on the night side of the moon and secondly, by the way they were talking the beam of light was visible to the eye whereas the laser rebounded from the reflectors on the moon's surface is invisible to the naked eye.

There is normal explanation,there is a increase in meteor activity of late and probably struck the moon as they struck jupiter in the recent past,just pray the ones that hit jupiter don`t hit our moon,sorry alarmist again,but its factually true and scientifically observed,search meteor activity recently to add to all the rest of the weird stuff ?
Make up your own calm or hysterical minds or just don`t give a damn,clark gable stuff from gone with the wind ,theres plenty of hot air ,but this is not.

If there is a low-angle geological formation like an archway with a hole in it, or something similar, it would project a very narrow beam of light at the terminator that would fit their description. If their equipment is sensitive enough to catch meteorite impacts then such a feature would be very obvious to them.

Now, whether or not this feature is a natural product of lunar geology or artificial I will leave up to the usual crowd.

Not really sure about a mysterious beam detection, but their moon photography is quite creative

I'm tempted to call [HOAX] on this story.

Apart from it making little sense, the only source it provides doesn't exist.

That might explain why it claims Ria Novosti as a source and doesn't link to the page? I've read through the stories at Ria Novosti: Science section and there's nothing there.
