Science may know a lot about the cosmos, but the existence of aliens remains unresolved. Ancient history mentions gods, who descended from the stars, whom we now call ancient astronauts, and others believe they were extraterrestrials. In 1972, Gene Cernan became the last man to walk on the Moon, and humanity has been attempting to return to this massive satellite of the Earth ever since. Meanwhile, a slew of videos and photographs claiming to show the artificial structures on the Moon flooded the Internet. According to researchers and academics, unknown civilizations might have landed on the lunar craters before us.
Mysterious Monuments on the Moon
In August 1970, the American magazine Argosy released a fascinating story titled “Mysterious Monuments on the Moon,” The author Ivan T. Sanderson explores the two unusual solid structures acquired on the Moon by Luna 9 Orbiter-2. According to the author, these things were arranged in definite geometric designs that appeared to have been placed artificially.
“The photo was taken on February 4, 1966, after the landing spacecraft. It showed two straight equidistant rocks, like markings on the exterior of an airport runway.” the author stated. “These round stones are all identical and lied at an angle that creates a strong sun reflection, allowing descending planes to see them.”
Russian scientists Dr. S. Ivanov and Engineer Dr. A. Bruenko examined the photograph. “We can confirm that the distance between stones one, three, two, and four is equal,” they said. In terms of size, the stones are identical. There doesn’t appear to be any nearby height or elevation where the rocks might have been rolled and strewn into this geometric shape. The objects appear to be ordered according to specific geometric laws when viewed in three dimensions.”
Orbiter-2 took the second batch of photos above the Sea of Tranquility on November 20, 1966, at the height of 29 miles above the lunar surface. The shadows of eight-pointed spires shaped like Cleopatra’s Needle (the ancient Egyptian obelisk currently in Central Park in New York) and the Washington Monument may be seen in images taken 2,000 miles away from the “runway” claimed by the Russians on the Ocean of Storms.
The Journal of Space Exploration published a scientific study titled “Image Analysis of Unusual Structures on the Far Side of the Moon in the Crater Paracelsus C.” The authors examine two strange features in the crater Paracelsus C on the far side of the Moon using photos from Apollo 15 and the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. It contains some abnormal structures on the Moon that are not the result of any known natural processes. The truth is that similar findings have been published throughout the years. Georga Leonard, who wrote the book “Somebody Else is on the Moon” in 1976, was one of the first to mention unusual constructions on the Moon. Five years later, Fred Steckling published “We Discovered Alien Bases on the Moon,” a book that strange detailed formations on the Moon’s surface.
NASA physicist Dr. John Brandenburg startled everyone with his comment on the Clementine Mission, which discovered evidence of ice near the Moon’s the South Pole.
Dr. Brandenburg said:
“Clementine Mission was essentially a task of photo investigation to see whether somebody was establishing bases on the Moon. Did they enlarge them?”
“Of all the photos from the Moon, I was impressed by an image of a large linear structure. This appeared to be fake, and it shouldn’t be there. As a member of the space defense community, I’m concerned about any such structure on the Moon because it isn’t ours, and there’s no way we could have created it. It suggests there’s another person up there.”
Footprints of the Gods
According to NASA’s Unexplained Files, scientists were left scratching their heads when it looked that an unidentified walk had taken place on the Moon. Harrison Schmitt, an astronaut from Apollo 17, was the most recent person to walk on the Moon in 1972.
When NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter returned high-resolution photographs of the Moon 40 years later, some footprints emerged 30 miles away from the Apollo 17 landing site.
“They appear like strange footmarks walking over the surface; you wonder what created them,” NASA lunar scientist Peter Schultz said. William Birnes, the author, took it a step further. “They look like footmarks. Someone might have been walking there, but the problem is that they are not human-sized.”
Even though scientists could not answer the mystery of the so-called “footprints of the Gods,” they did provide an alternate explanation. These linear lines of holes, they believe, are the surface representation of a subsurface lava tube that had carried magma billions of years ago.
