I found this vid on youtube.

The users name is saintsdola and he/she has a few interesting clips.

Here is the alleged Tower




It does look like some kind of tall structure

so he took a trip to the moon and filmed it himself ?

Looks like a radar or communication tower of some sort. I would say to help guide in known and unknown missions if it is real.

Yes, that is exactly what he did!

Well, that is fascinating. The sun is clearly coming in from the left and the material from which the main tower structure is made is clearly something very different from the surrounding environment. Very nice catch, there.

SHENANIGANS!!


There, I said it.

I don't doubt that it's a tower but I do doubt that it's the moon he's filmin.

Would a simple pan-out be too much to ask?

You can't pan out when you're filming through a telescope.

Jeeze, the ignorance of the replies so far is mind boggling.

If this tower is real then it is HUGE

It looks like GI Joe figurines with weapons and in the middle of the screen at the beginning, when the camera pans out, you can clearly see a dinasaur toy of some sort.

EIther that, or there is an all out war going on on the moon with very large people.......and a dinasaur.

Pause it at :13. And look exactly in the middle to middle bottom.
Tell me that is not a dinasaur.

He must be a rich mother if he could afford taking a trip to the moon on his own dime.

Not sure if i am convinced that it is a tower. From the video it is difficult to tell.

I'll add some information I found on the YouTube page.

"Filmed January 5, 2012 @ 7 pm ....Tall water tower looking structure on the horizon of the moon. 4 clips in one. I filmed this using a celestron 130 telescope and a panasonic camcorder."

More specfic..."panasonic 78x zoom camcorder. i was optical zoomed at about 30. I used an 18mm eyepiece with a 2x barlow lense on the telescope"

"The only location i can tell you is that its on the southwest side of the southern pole of the moon, on the horizon. my telescope images things upside down"

He is answering all of the comments and participating in the discussion. I think it's an interesting video.

could of lost focus then.

what if it took him a long time to the focus ?

Selfish much ?

It appears to be rock formations, just that this one is unique in shape to appear tower like. It appears as though there are other formations not so toweresque as well when he pans right.

Here is an example of a similar style formation in South America.


Picture Source

One could postulate that if this formation was viewed under the same circumstances it would appear to be a man-made tower of sorts.

Very intresting, thanks for posting

im wondering what they are hiding.
if we could pinpoint the location of the nearby creaters, we could all take a look for ourself

I wonder if its one of the same towers covered up in this NASA picture

If the moon only had erosion like we do

I'm not one to jump on "moon tower" bandwagons. However, I assume rock formations are different on the moon than they are in South America. Which would make this explanation weak, unless information on moon rock formations being similar was provided to substantiate.

"The Moon, lacks both atmosphere and tectonic activity. Therefore, the only remaining process of erosion would be from impact events. The Moon's surface continues to be impacted by meteorite of various sizes. If the impacting body is relatively small, it will be vaporized on impact and throw some amount of lunar surface material away from the Moon. If the impact energy is relatively low, this cloud of dust, rock and vapor will be drawn back to the Moon's surface, making changes to the shape of the surface by cratering and by depositing drifts of rocky material called lunar ejecta. However, if the impact energy is great enough to throw the ejected surface material off with high enough speed, it may escape the Moon's gravity and continue off into space. Also, fine particles of ejected material may be acted on by the constant blast of subatomic particles from the Sun, known as solar wind. If the added push from the solar wind is able to speed these fine dust particles enough, they may also escape the gravitational attraction of the Moon and travel away into space. Evidence of ejected particle erosion has been confirmed by discovery of rocky meteorites found in Antactica which have been chemically identified as having come from the surface of Mars.

It should be noted that it is likely that the Moon receives more dust and rocky material from space than is blown away from it by impacts and solar wind. However, these impacts do actually erode the shape of the Moon's surface by cratering existing features."

So there is erosion and over time who is to say that something similar to the structure in South America could not have occurred. Sorry to ruin the fun...

There's no reference or context to this video.
It'd be nice if the videographer gave us moon map coordinates?

Otherwise, videographer could have just sprayed a big wad of Great Stuff foam in the yard, sprinkled some dirt on it, and went to filming it through a cardboard toilet paper roll tube with saturation dailed down to grayscale on the camera.

No context = this could be anything, or anywhere.

Indeed not like we do, but present nonetheless and is due to lunar ejecta. All sorts of impacts have occurred on the moon. The ejecta can mold the surrounding landscape. That, and the resulting resting place of any impact material that wasn't vaporized is any one's guess as to how it settles. Perhaps this is a piece of debris that settled just so.

Or it's an intelligently built tower, however personally I am sticking with Occum's Razor.
