Combine this information with a look at what happens to the "UFO" pixels when you change the conditions of Google's moon globe settings and you can see why those pixels appear.

They're actually corrupted transparent pixels; anything beneath the terrain mesh at those pixels shows through. Normally what shows through is Google moon's standard moon globe, which has much lighter pixels at much lower resolution at those spots. If you switch on the day/night simulation, the pixels fade while the rest of the texture remains the same. If you switch to a terrain height heat map mode, those pixels turn blue just like the rest of the globe hidden beneath the terrain model, but the rest of the image stays the same (since it's just using a static texture from Kaguya).

But still people write things like "oh I bet its an automatic spacedock used by the Venusians to land their triangular crafts".


And so what if they do?

What difference does it make if people are having a bit of fun, even if they're wrong.

This isn't a pure science website, and never was...too many members treat it like it is though unfortunately.


What members like YOU should remember is the motto of this site which is DENY IGNORANCE so if it has been shown that the op is mistaken in his assumption due to the quality of the image others are quite right in pointing it out to members that don't bother to read posts made after the op before replying to it.

Well explained, I also had some notion that the pixels had something to do with a reorientation of the newer pictures. The same effects can be seen all over that section and probably elsewhere, either singularly or in patterns.
It's a pity in some ways the other thread was closed though, since the big story there was the two unknown spacecraft, although there was no way that Turner radio could make the 'V' in the crater a cogent part of the story, as they did try to.

It's the result of image artifacts, and has been covered before here on ATS.

Here's an example side by side comparison of a poor image from Google Earth, to a highly detailed image by the LROC:



Not a UFO....not a structure......not a cave.

It's image artifacts.


My thoughts exactly! Thanks for your input.


What's the chance of seven image artifacts all lining up in two straight lines? Are you so desperate to find a 'rational' explanation that you are content to ignore features that fly in the face of any natural formation or process creating image artifacts.
The trouble with the logic of such an explanation is that it is ad hoc, being concocted with no supporting evidence merely to avoid having to take seriously the possibility that the anomalous image indicates the presence of some kind of sophisticated intelligence on the Moon. Implausible, ad hoc explanations explain nothing despite creating the illusion of doing so.


NO whats obvious is YOU don't have a clue how digital images work!!! As the level of zoom in the op picture is CLEARLY showing the pixels/jpeg artifacts etc of the picture and NOT details.

Please if you are such a expert on digital images. Explain how these artifacts are made.
If its just pixelation why dont we see more artifacts of that shape?
I have no clue if this picture shows a entrence or other structure, but it looks odd.
And where do i find other examples of a triangle with light dots, that can only be pixel artifacts?

EDIT! i think my questions were explained a few posts back.

That's what I think. If this is pixels or Jpeg artifacts, then why aren't they all over the place? Although I have no proof to back up my opinion, I think this is something more than just an optical illusion. The seven lights are too distinct, IMO.

Check out the video in the first post on this page, as it should help answer your questions...

Dr Astro of glp seems too insist its just a crater. He linked images that seem too support that its just a hole. hes got a bitchin telescope i believe him.

On January 10, NASA's Wallops Space Facility in Virginia made a sudden announcement, with only three days advance notice to the public, saying THREE rockets would be launched from Wallops between January 13 and 15, between 1:00 AM and 5;00 AM on a classified Department of Defense Mission.


Why do they always have to launch rocket to UFO and things like that? Of what are they scared? Do they attack us when they come around?! NO! If these civilations can come to us by the universe they probably can destroy us in seconds! Im sure that they could be very helpful here on earth with their improved technologies, it's sad to see the human acting like this, we need help very bad here.

Below is a link to a higher quality image, and map of the crater in question. It is Belyaev, on the edge of the Mare Moscoviense, on the farside of the Moon. It is 54 kilometers in diameter.

I can confirm they are here to pick me up. I don't have an interstellar vehicle anymore due to the insurance, so I had to bum a ride from a buddy of mine.

I don't know why the image in the link won't enlarge. Even at the size available it seems to clarify the matter somewhat. Another, larger image of crater Belyaev is available at:
planetarynames.wr.usgs.gov...
scroll up to coordinates at top of image. Then center image at 142 to 144 degrees, then scroll down to Belyaev, which is marked with its name.

Now you know your not supposed to be here without a visa from the intergalactic council earth is a protectorate you need to get permission from the science bureau. Im currently doing a study on primitive life form development and it too me nearly 10 yarns to get permission. If you do not have your visa i suggest you immediately vacate earth before i inform the authorities. If you need assistance please see the embassy on the moon they will help you book passage just activate your emergency homing device. If you are just a teenager from alpha centauri out joy riding and just in general wreaking havoc on indigenous populations i refer To section seven paragraph nine about the consequences of of contaminating primitive cultures. You could spend along time in the prisons on rigel seven and as we both know thats no picnic.

it reminds the spacecraft in the usa, HUGE triangle shape that the whole town saw and their governor refused after, but he admitted after he resigned. I can't remember the name of the incident, but it was the same shape of alien spacecraft.

anybody remembers this?

People want proof of non terrestrial artificiality in space there it is....it receives little media attention and every attempt is made by main stream science to ignore it. There it is however and it doesn't look like pixilation or a mirage, and so people stop talking because there is nothing in there belief inventory system to explain it.

Well. i personally don't search proofs for ufo existence, or something to debunk it. Αm always searching for something more familiar, less hostile... because most of them we see, are rebels, bad ones. And cant wait for a cleaning service...
