If there were bases on the moon we'd be able to look at the moon during new moon and see at least ONE light someone forgot to turn off. ...
In respect of these signs of moon bases, mostly they supposed to exist on the dark side of the moon, but are numerous examples and recordings for
centuries of this anomalous lights.
I will quote bellow from a chapter from Ingo Swan's "Penetration" book:
"In briefly turning to the matter of lights on the Moon, we encounter a situation that, simply put, is absolutely hilarious.
To get into this, the compendium by William H. Corliss entitled The Moon and the Planets has been referred to in the preceding chapter. This
compendium contains a section entitled "Lunar Luminous Phenomena," and begins with a brief Introduction.
In it Corliss points up in that while the Moon has long been considered to be a "dead world," it nonetheless "exhibits a surprising variety of
He goes on to briefly discuss the Dead Moon Dictum long held by scientists, and indicates "that luminous phenomena were seldom reported in the
scientific literature" because "they couldn't exist" according to that scientific Dictum.
Corliss then points up that the "arrival of the Space Age brought the moon under detailed scrutiny; and both professional and amateur astronomers
began reporting flashes of light, transient color phenomena . . ." and so forth.
To begin making the point of this chapter, it is necessary to elucidate the fact that the lunar light phenomena are NOT rare. They number in the
thousands and some of them have been so robust as to have been observed by the naked eye.
Well, the arrival of the Space Age and the arrival in the vicinity of the Moon by Orbiters and later by manned Apollo missions ought to have brought
further enlightenment about the nature of lunar light phenomena - especially those which have been reported as having motion and as moving about in
Yet, the official silence since 1968 until today has been thunderous on this particular matter.
The history of observations of lights on the Moon is rather long and, throughout it, accounts of the luminous phenomena were consistently logged
In large part, the accounts were ignored by various branches of the developing sciences.
But even so, up until the advent of the Space Age the luminosities could continue to be seen at rather frequent intervals..."
and "That the Space Age decision-makers were aware from the get-go of the lights was clearly established by NASA itself.
In 1968, a document was published entitled Chronological Catalog of Reported Lunar Events (NASA Technical Report R-277.)
The catalog documented 579 lunar events between 1540 and 1967, about 75 per cent of which referred to lunar "luminous phenomena." The remaining 25 per
cent referred to phenomena consisting of Moon hazes, mists, fogs and clouds that sometimes obstructed good telescope viewing of the lights, unless the
lights moved beyond the foggy obscurations.
The authorship of the report was attributed to the joint efforts of four researchers, one each from the University of Arizona, the Goddard Space
Flight Center, the Armagh Planetarium, and the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory.
Here it should be remembered that an "event" is actually a happening - i.e., something going on - in this case, going on with regard to the Dead Moon
where "events" are not supposed to happen.
While this may be true as far as the document's four authors are concerned, the catalog most certainly DOES NOT contain all available information.
Even after subtracting hundreds of reports known to be spurious, many more than 2,600 or so events rather then 579 events might have been included
with complete justification.
For example, during the latter part of the nineteenth century, the Royal Astronomical Society in Britain recorded 1,600 lunar events over a mere
two-year period by utilizing a 13-inch at the Royal Observatory at Greenwich.
So, the NASA catalog DID NOT contain all available information, but merely a selection of certain types of events from among it. "
So there is something going on on the moon.
