"Double craters" likely to be imaging artifacts

 Back to Current Stories


These images represent but a few of the many anomalous images available from NASA archives. The noted features in the images below suggest a far more interesting picture of the moon than is typically painted by mainstream astronomy, which characterizes our satellite as a stark, bland, lifeless rock. So far no adequate explanation has been presented, by either the space agency or the astronomical community, for the curiosities contained within these official NASA photographs. The hypothesis that features such as the "double craters" and "square crater," which appear on Lunar Orbiter III frame 85HI and Apollo 10's AS10-32-4822, respectively, are the work of intelligence, is as valid as any standard theory.

Below are several enlargements of what I consider to be some of the most compelling anomalies in available lunar imagery. The first image shows a strange triangular "crater," Ukert, the unusual shape of which was first noted by Richard Hoagland of The Enterprise Mission in a Lick Observatory photograph (below left). The Pentagon's recent rush mission to the moon, dubbed Clementine, returned images of Ukert which confirmed its angular internal structure and three bright spots spaced approximately 120 degrees apart (below right).

The following image presents quite a puzzle. Peppered throughout the lunar landscape are dozens and dozens of "double craters," the likes of which can never be expected to be seen in any standard model of the moon. Further confounding is the fact that the "doublets" are almost always divided at their midpoint, and are similarly aligned. The doubling is clearly not an imaging error effect, as not all of the features in the image are duplicated. [4/19/00 revision - See "'Double craters' likely to be imaging artifacts" for opposing view] Note, also, that the two similarly sized large craters in the center of the image appear to have a hexagonal shape. Obviously, something is amiss in this photo. It has been suggested that the doublets are not craters at all, but rather two-pronged "braces" supporting much larger structures suspended above the lunar surface.

Following is one of at least 12 known versions of Apollo 10 frame AS10-32-4822. (Exactly why there are a dozen or more versions of this frame is outside the scope of this brief overview, though that fact begs some explanation by the space agency.) Though it is inexplicably blacked out in the official NASA image catalogue, frame "4822" can still be ordered from the space agency. The image shows a number of striking anomalies, not the least of which is a vast region of rectilinear structure looking for all the world like an extremely dilapidated city (hence its nickname "L.A. on the moon"). Other strange features include a peculiar square "crater" scored by razor straight notches and surrounded by honeycomb like "mountains."


More examples will be added in the near future.
