if you see a Dino in that video my suggestion to you would be to go see an optometrist and have your eyes checked. I have done this with a small telescope myself. No where near the power of the one used in the video but you can see strange things on the moon if you look for yourself. Before you debunk and ridicule get your own telescope and camera and look for yourself. And anyone who says that this man must have went to the moon himself as a joke poking fun should definitely keep there opinion to themselves because everyone knows that cared to actually watch the video that the effect is a camera through a telescope. Use common sense in your comments please, and if you don't know, don't try to answer the question.

yall are really dumb cause the man put a camera on a telescope. I do it all the time to send pics to our local news station

It looks like Ejecta to me, stuff blown out from an impact, the debris thrown out of the crater. What kind of telescope was this guy using? And it seems a bit odd that anyone sees 'towers' or anything out of the ordinary. My main question, what kind of telescope would give this definition....?

Where do yo see this tower? what minute/second on the video ? I could not define anything as you said "tower"? Maybe if you could provide the second/minute I could freeze-frame it to observe it too.

I would believe 5 miles. I think its a plateau or something. Yep I drive a 74 volvo wagon. I've been considering painting it green and mounting a turret on the top.

Man, I don't see it? even if I throw in a bunch of imagination..... sorry, I don't see anything except an odd shadow that might.......might be construed as anything?

He says a celestron 130.so a 130mm mirror that has a 650mm focal length so using an 18mm eyepiece thats 650/18 = 36.1 times magnification then a 2x barlow lens so that 72 x magnification,its not a tower


Many members on here have or have access to equipment way better than that! if there was a tower we would have seen it a LONG TIME AGO!

More shaky videos and shadow chasing

Thanks, I only went down about 7-8 comments, and discovered later scrolling on down further, that I had missed this info you just posted.

Scientists Say We Should Search Moon for Alien Traces
Instead of just looking for radio messages, we should search for traces of alien explorers in the celestial bodies of our solar system. These are the highlights of their research paper:
• Alien civilizations may have sent probes to our region of the galaxy.
• Any mission to the solar system would probably have occurred a very long time ago. The lunar environment could preserve artifacts for millions of years.
• Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter provides a photographic database to search for artifacts.
• Searching the LRO database would make an excellent educational project.

********************************************************
A thought occurs to me... if some extraterestrial had wanted to probe and had sent a craft to explore, could they not also have put a self destruct device on it to leave no trace. Certainly earth would have been more interesting unless they were looking for an observation point to observe earth with and monitor out progress. I'd think the moon much less interesting if they had sent this ...?craft?... all these lightyears for discovery.

There's no way you could see such detail with such a small telescope.

I have a 150cm reflector which is larger, I can see nowhere near such detail. I doubt even Hubble could.

I think it's made up, certainly looks that way.


I tend to agree with you. Even with a barlow on top magnification it would be difficule, and then only on a full moon would you get enough light for that high of a magnification. Just guessing, you'd need something in the range of a 5-6" refractor or a 24" dobsonian. I had a 13" and could never see that diffinative on the lunar surface.

Cool Video! If thats really the moon that structure is freeking huge! A real good or professional telescope costs big bucks, I guess if you have the money you can buy one and look at the moon in very fine detail and if so then objects like this must be seen on a regular basis by astronomers however they are not talking about it much.

Its just a matter of time , and we all can take a peek what's on the moons surface, if true, it looks like a g... damn observation tower , to monitor us all... And all the sightings lately of objects leaving our moon surface .. I don't know man , But why is it that I don't see any comments from Phage or Armap to this subject its mostly their territory, to come with some logical explanation ???

great find S&F

you have to multiply the scope zoom with the camera zoom here... as he stated he had a 72x zoom camera mounted to the scope... so that would make the difference.

Like wow, man!!! Far out!!! How did the THOUSANDS of amateur astronomers (with equipment that dwarfs the toy-r-us crap this was using) miss such an obvious thing? Crazy right? I mean, the moon is only the MOST VIEWED thing in space by every amateur telescope enthusiast on the planet. And they all missed it. But you....man, you got it. Way to stick it to the man. Not to mention your breaking the obvious conspiracy that must be in place for the THOUSANDS of average folks who must be in on it for something so obvious to be hidden from us for so long.

They can hide no more now that anyone with a cheap telescope and internet access can show the world what they are hiding!!!!

Sarcasm aside, no one should bother replying in this thread unless they have a telescope and fully understand the basics of the optics they are using. Some of the comments in this thread make me weep for the future.

Look how many pages have been written here. Your embarrassing yourselves. Seriously. never mind the point that ANYONE with half a brain and grade school ability to use logic, reason and common sense can IMEDIATLY dismiss this video without ANY knowledge of optics, telescopes, video compression or human idiocy. How's that you ask? Well, if you have to ask, you wouldn't understand, but try reading the top part of my post a few times and see if it starts to sink in.

And people wonder why those interested in fringe topics are viewed as total ignorant nutjobs. In this day and age, you guys are ignorant not from lack of opporotunity, but by pure choice. And that is the worst ignorance of all.

there are many better telescopes out there than the one he is using, why no one has said anything similar to him,

I smell something and it ain't roses

For those interested in seeing what different telescopes can do with different eyepieces, go to the Telescope simulator site. It uses the moon for simulation and you can use a 4" to 16" scope with various eye pieces from 56mm to 3mm lenses.
When using it, be sure to click on the moon itself and you have to drag it into view in the circle because it is not of the full moon, otherwise the circle will be black.
Forgot, you change it to full moon or change the object...my bad.

what the hell was that?!!!
looks like the person filmed a ball of plastasine thru an empty toilet paper tube with his cell phone while he was drunk!!!

If those are towers maybe they would explain some of this?

Talks about space warfare....

Read this ats thread and you too will see why I am intrigued

Thanks for that site. Too bad there is no way to account for the additional zoom of the camera though. That seems to make a huge difference.
