It comprises over 15,000 wide angle camera (WAC) photos taken between November 2009 and February 2011 by Nasa's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC).


A Nasa spokesman said: 'This WAC mosaic provides the most complete look at the morphology of the far side to date, and will provide a valuable resource for the scientific community.

Wait...!!! Where is the alien moon base that everyone talked about?

You mean to tell me it doesn't exist? Argh, now I feel like a dunce.

On a serious note, S&F, nice find.

they had to spray paint the cities out.
NASA = never a straight answer.

I find it hard to believe that the reason the far side is never visible from Earth

is because the moon spins once on its axis in precisely the same amount of time it takes to revolve around the Earth...these two intervals have been equal for all of recorded history, and probably for millions of years or longer.


Maybe the moon really is an alien spacecraft with intelligent control

This image seems a little tedious with the fact that they made it from multiple diffrent shots on the moon where they can crop out any "alien life". Another thing you can notice that it has a uneven aligning at the bottom middle.

So you're saying that they can't crop it out if it was taken as 1 pic? The fact that they used thousands of different pics is irrelevant. Anything can be cropped and edited out of any image.


I am kind of surprised by this image though. I expected it to have more and much larger craters. I would think that side would, in general, have been hit more than the side facing the Earth.

No what im saying is that it would be easier to erase something from the pic when there litterally thousands of diffrent shots, as in it would be easier to cover up any mistakes by blaming it on the way it was cropped or clonedstamped.

That is an intresting point though it would make sense if there was more craters on the surface. Theres still so much we dont know about the closest object to earth yet we are going beyond it.

Hell no it's not. Someone spraypainted on it. dam alien vandal thugs.

Seriously though, what are you pointing at? The obvious line down the middle?

I honestly hope that you are pointing at something more than that. I noticed that, even on the smaller pic the OP used.
