Someone on another forum had posted a picture of the moon(original photo), and I was looking at it, and looked at the space background and noticed some weird stuff. Like...I could see stairs and walls. It was weird. Some people couldn't see what I was talking about...so I edited the photo and changed it to Heat Map and filled in some light. And now people were beginning to understand what I was looking at. I'm not claiming anything, but rather want some help on this.

Original photo

Edited version

Am I experiencing the phenomenon where you look at a cloud and see something like a...bunny, or perhaps a dragon breathing fire? I can't remember the term for it. When looking at the photos, it's at the top to the right where the "edge" of the lunar surface is.

Who cares about the stairs-like thing, you actually photographed a cloud! Where is the cloud from, in the first place? The Moon has no atmosphere.

HM, I'll S&F you just for the fact that you photographed a cloud where there shouldn't be one.

Maybe the cloud is something in Earth's atmosphere and it showed up in the Moon shot?

Anyone can tell me how come there's a cloud in this shot? I been an astronomer for more than a decade but I've never seen that!

All I did was enlarge it, leaving the original black/greys and the black rectangles poking up above the far horizon seem obvious. Seem more like doors than walls to me

I don't see a cloud, I do see grains, fibers, and fogginess on the photograph that was scanned. It's actually a much cleaner scan than what I used to get many years ago when I was just starting out in astrophotography and scanning film prints.

Those would be some MASSIVE stairs, and that wall would put the Great Wall of China to shame.

Hm. I use digital and it pixelates but it doesn't make that kind of clouds. Maybe I never saw these clouds simply because I stick with digital. Thanks!

No kidding. Unless you're Frank Borman, Jim Lovell, or Bill Anders there's no way you took that photo since it's a photo from Apollo 8. Here's a cleaner scan of the photo (AS08-13-2244):

I think the stairs alone would put the Great Wall of China to shame. Well, the "stairs." So I'm pretty much reading into nothing? I was kind of expecting that anyways.

Thanks. That puts the thread to rest, since it was nothing more than a "dirty" scan.

It's a product of scanning a film print, I use to try to scan my film prints of the moon and this "cloud" is tame by comparison to the garbage I would get (even though you wouldn't see it on the photo itself). This was about 13 years ago though and the technology I had available to me at the time was much more primitive.

From Apollo, eh? That means the picture wasn't taken with a digital camera.

Oh. I don't do any scanning. That explains it.

Thanks again!

The "stairs" were no doubt caused when astronauts tumbled down the stairs while holding unto the picture

i love the fact that everything posted never comes to anything but we always keep coming back hoping that one of the posts ends up being true

Not even close. Sounds like you're trolling. However, the thread has been solved. Ngchunter posted a link to a cleaner scan of the photo I posted. And those "stairs" and "walls" that I saw were gone.

There are many interesting objects to view in the image.

I spent a couple of hours today enhancing certain parts of the image and found that the 'cloud' effect is obscuring a lot of surface detail. Personally, I do not think this is the true original but a modified version.
