Is This the Lunar Crash Site of a 1967 Spacecraft?


news.discovery.com

A strange-looking impact crater has been spotted by NASA's current lunar satellite.




THE GIST

- Lunar Orbiter 2's mission was to map out potential landing sites for the Apollo landings.
- The spacecraft is known for its "picture of the century" photo of the moon's landscape.
- A strange-looking impact crater has been spotted by NASA's current lunar satellite, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.

"The impact appears much too large (approximately 85 meters in diameter) to be the result of an impact from a spacecraft only a few meters tall" "The truth is that we are not sure what caused this impact feature," Ashley added.


What caused this peculiar-looking impact? The feature is very asymmetrical. Maybe we can ask the Chinese to check for us, when they get to the moon in a few years.


A new picture from the LRO details a strange, butterfly-shaped pattern that indicates a pile of lunar rubble -- but is from it a comet impact or the crash landing of a space probe? Not even scientists studying the image are sure.


In other words, they think they see splat marks but no debris?

Volcanoes, crash sites, interesting the amount of news coming from the moon lately.

They don't - they are speculating because of the unusual shape of the crater, as you would know if you bothered to read!!

Because it's so conclusive as being some proof of aliens or something along those lines?

It's an odd formation, that's for sure. I guess nobody knows what caused it as of now, but I don't see anything that would indicate it as anything incriminating as far as ETs or advanced human spaceships visiting the moon would be concerned, which is what I assume you are talking about?

I'm guessing that this here is the crash site of lunar orbiter 2:

Can I ask why you think this?

If I don't guess now I might miss my chance to be right.

I don't think they've found the crater caused by LO2, so if I pick one nearby that roughly matches some of the criteria then I can claim the credit if it turns out to be the impact crater.

I have everything to gain by guessing and nothing to gain by not guessing.
