I firmly believe the artwork, which includes the figures and facial representations was sculpted into the landscape deliberately. The landscape was designed to create the impression, when viewing from a distance, of being a picture scene.
But in this case, it also means that "they" had to make it appear like that not only from a distance but also from this particular and angle to the surface.



So, if that's the case, those features would be very noticeable when seen from different angles (like from above), and that doesn't happen.


ArMaP, The images you posted are a good example of deceptive artwork.

The lunar landscape artwork is designed to be seen from different viewpoints.

If I can find a high resolution overhead view I will demonstrate that some of the features can be observed from above.

Here is a larger view of the scene which I have animated to highlight many of the figures and faces. There are other features in the view that I have not highlighted.

Also, something interesting to note is that when the image is inverted there are still recognizable features to be see within the circled areas. I will post an inverted animation later

I enjoyed it, FWIW.

No it's a Rorschach test chart.

As promised, here is the inverted view of the animation shown above.

Look at a feature within an ellipse then view it in context in the unmarked image.

You may notice other features that are not highlighted.

arianna

what do you see in this one?
use a graphics program and zoom/pan around in it.
that's from the color clementine set (by color i mean, one of the clementine cameras took photos and tried to approximate what it looks like in natural color)



super close up

Exactly wrong; that is a "false color" image. Clementine took photos through special filters that would detect characteristic reflections from minerals. The colors are deliberately exaggerated to make it easier to map these mineral deposits.

from the USGS website, the description is
The Clementine 'natural' color composite mosaic (5 UVVIS bands available) is presented here for browsing by utilizing three of the five UVVIS multispectral bands, combined in red, green and blue channels of a color image (see table below). (Note: The composite image is not truly "natural color," but mimics natural color to the human eye.) This multispectral lunar mosaic is a radiometrically and geometrically controlled, photometrically modeled global image mosaic compiled using more than 400,000 images from multiple filter observations of the Ultraviolet/Visible (UVVIS) camera onboard the Clementine Spacecraft (Eliason et al., 1999).

here's the "false" color for mineral mapping

The composite image is not truly "natural color,"


For one thing, the human eye cannot see ultraviolet. These photos are over-saturated, and do not accurately portray what the human eye would see. Not that it really matters, really, because I'm sure Arianna will see all sorts of things.

so just turn down the saturation a bit, and there you go.
besides, THIS FALSE COLOR MAP is the false color map from clementine

also the black and white clementine images, show the same exact features, only in black and white. so what part of that image would literally be invisible but is visible in the natural color version, because of uv? it's all still there in the black and white. so i'd be interested to know what features would disappear because they aren't viewable in visible light

thing is lit up like a christmas tree. so i'm guessing the glowy bits are the far ends of the visible spectrum, either uv or infra-red? i know it lists the infra-red border of the visible spectrum is the limit of the visible light the clementine took in infra-red. so neglible infra-red is supposed to be viewable in the natural color version.

a bit exaggerated, you can compare the numbers mentioned above...

for example...

www.lpi.usra.edu...

aristarchus @ “natural” colors (blue = 415 nanometers, green = 750 nanometers, red = 950 nanometers)

but there are bluer pix of that crater available..

yeah including one from an amateur astronomer. no uv or infra-red filters on his camera.
nasa's worldwind or whatever it's called, has a nice turquoise blue version of it.

OK. I see a whole bunch of freaky face-like things in the pictures of the moon. I also see a bunch of freaky face-like things in Rorschach picture. Please explain the difference between what makes what your pointing out alien art work and what makes the Rorschach a psycholgical effect.

and one last big one of the "womb" area. i think it's in mare tranquillatis or sea of tranquility. correct me if i'm wrong (check out the glowy gold thing at the bottom. scroll the image over, to see it))
