Ancient Moon Bases


There is hard visual evidence that there are artificial constructions and areas on the Moon's surface that are being intentionally obscured from view due to image tampering by NASA and the US Navy. Some of these structures have slipped through the censors net and are clearly visible on photographs taken by the Apollo missions and the Clementine satellite. It is only a matter of time now before the public at large finds out that the remnants of an ancient civilization, considerably more advanced than our own, have been discovered on the moon. The implications are seismic.

Twenty first century missions to the Moon

The establishment of bases on the Moon and commercial exploration of the surface of the planet will soon be a reality. NASA intends to return to the Moon in 2014 with its new Orion spacecraft, while the construction of an actual manned lunar base is scheduled for 2019.

Russia’s booster rocket maker, Energia, has a more ambitious program; to build a permanent manned base on the Moon by 2015. Russia says that the base will be built to develop the industrial production of Helium-3. The non-radioactive isotope of Helium, Helium-3, is a powerful fuel that can be used in nuclear power generation. It is believed that only six tons of this fuel could provide enough energy to power a large European country for one year.

India's space program successfully launched its first lunar mission (Chandraayan) in October 2008, joining what is looking increasingly like a 21st century space race. Japan (Selene) and China (Changle) already have survey craft in orbit.

A meeting on future space exploration that was held in Athens in May 2007 identified detailed research of the Moon as one of the priority issues of the European space program.

NASA and the Moon

Both the Soviet and American lunar programs of the 1960’s and 1970’s were undertaken with a high level of secrecy, and only a portion of the information compiled was released to the public. NASA might be considered a civilian agency, but in reality most if its astronauts and other employees have to adhere to strict military security regulations. The majority of NASA’s activities are funded from the defense budget. NASA screens and stores all images from the Moon. Only carefully selected and censored images are open to the general public and only a small proportion of lunar material and samples are available for scrutiny.

So why the cover up? - Most probably because the US government has been trying to buy time. There are structures on the Moon built by a highly technologically advanced civilization. If word got out that these lunar structures existed, a new and vastly expensive space race would be triggered. The cover up has bought NASA and the US 30 years – but now the race is on! Has somebody spilled the beans? Or is this just the start of a new space age ‘gold rush’ for Helium 3? Either way, it is only a matter of time now, with so many nations getting involved in lunar exploration, before the cat is let out of the bag and the world is told - Somebody got to the Moon many thousands of years before us!

Amazing structures on the Moon

Looking at the old Apollo photographs and more recent pictures taken by satellite, ink spots and blurs can frequently be seen. NASA and the US military censors have carefully inspected every single photograph and have blurred some areas while applying black ink to others. What are they trying to hide?

Technology has moved on since the days of the Apollo missions. Computers and their software are now vastly more sophisticated. Features that were not evident on lunar photographs released to the public in the 1960s and 1970’s, and thus missed by the censors, can now be discerned using modern image analysis software. Detailed analysis of photographs released by NASA has revealed evidence of what appear to be ruins and artificial constructions of various types. Photographs taken from Apollo space craft in lunar orbit show rectangular and square shaped objects in the Aristotle crater. These structures are most definitely not of natural origin.

Below is an image taken from the Clementine satellite image browser at latitude -35 and longitude 208. Note that the obscured angular image is still partially visible.

Numerous myths and legends from different historical cultures and nations speak of a race of ‘gods’ that once inhabited the Earth. Could it be that constructions on the Moon were created by a highly advanced human civilisation that lived 12,000 years or more ago, before the catastrophic ending of the last ice age?

Lunar enigmas

The Aristarchus crater enigma is one of numerous so-called transient lunar phenomena (TLP). It is one of the brightest lunar occurrences, which changes colour, sometimes producing a red or bluish glow, and appears to emit gas. In 1958, Aristarchus crater's strange phenomena were observed by Russian astronomer N. Kozyrev. They were also reported by the crew of Apollo 11. The nature of the crater phenomena has given credence to a theory that there could be some sort of a power device, possibly a fusion reactor, in the crater.

In 1968, a year before Neil Armstrong first stepped onto the Moon, a NASA catalogue of TLPs was published. The document featured almost 600 unexplained lunar phenomena, which had been observed since 1540. The catalogue included the 1871-1896 reports from England's Royal Astronomical Society of lighted geometrical images on the Moon. Later astronomers confirmed observations of oval moving lunar objects, and reports of bridge-like constructions in the lunar region called Mare Crisium.

Another lunar enigma is centred on Copernicus crater. The site appears to resemble an ancient strip mine. As there is no wind or free flowing water on the Moon, erosion of the lunar terrain cannot be involved in producing a landscape which resembles a vast mining operation site, with debris and rock piles and angled terraces. The topography of the Copernicus crater (see below), such as ridges and ramps, resemble those of strip mines seen on Earth.

The Shard

A strange object rising above the surface of the Moon was photographed by an Apollo mission. The object has a spindly geometrical shape and is about 1 mile in length. It is highly unlikely that the Shard is a natural phenomenon.

Other lunar anomalies

There are many more unexplained lunar anomalies. For example, in the upper part of Rima Hadley, not far from the place where Apollo-15 landed, a construction surrounded by a tall D-shaped wall was discovered. A transparent dome raised above a crater edge was apparently discovered near the Copernicus crater. Many structures in or close to craters have been deliberately obscured in lunar photographs.

Apollo-10 astronauts took a photo (AS10-32-4822) of a one-mile long object called ‘Castle’, which casts a distinct shadow on the lunar surface. The object seems to consist of several cylindrical units and a large conjunctive unit.

Former NASA scientists speak out

In March 1996 it was announced for the first time that artificial structures and objects had been discovered on the Moon. The briefing was given by former NASA scientists, engineers and other researchers, under the aegis of ‘The Mars Mission’, a grassroots space research and policy group of specialists and citizens. They stated that they were acting independently of NASA, and that their briefing had not been sanctioned by the space agency.

At the briefing in the National Press Club in Washington D.C. it was stated that, in addition to NASA, the Soviet Union had photographic evidence proving the presence of ancient ruins on the Moon. Video films and photos made by US astronauts during the Apollo program were shown at the briefing. Representatives of the media were extremely surprised as to why the materials had not been revealed to the public earlier. It was indicated that this was due to censorship by NASA.

These official mission films, analysed using scientific techniques and computer technologies unavailable to NASA 30 years ago (when the original photographs were taken), now provide compelling evidence for the presence of ancient artificial structures on the Moon.

Startling Apollo lunar allegations

The former manager of the Data and Photo Control Department at NASA’s Lunar Receiving Laboratory during the manned Apollo Lunar Program, Ken Johnston, has released a number of sensational statements recently in the USA. The specialist said that U.S. astronauts found ancient ruins of artificial origin when they landed on the Moon. He said that the U.S. government had been keeping this information a secret for 40 years.

Johnston's incredible allegations have recently appeared in a new book, ‘Dark Mission: the Secret History of NASA’, co-authored by former NASA consultant and CBS Science Advisor, Richard C. Hoagland and Mike Bara, an aerospace engineering consultant.

Towers on the Moon

Massive towers have also been discovered on the lunar surface. Below is an attempt by the NASA censors to smudge out one of these towers from an Apollo photograph.

Attempts to conceal the towers have not always been successful. As can be seen in the photograph below, a massive tower is clearly visible on a NASA photograph enhanced using modern image processing technology.

Ancient spaceship on the Moon?

An anomalous object was captured on film in 1971 by the Apollo 15 astronauts at an altitude of about 70 miles above the lunar surface as they passed over the ‘dark’ side of the moon. The image shown below is from the official Lunar and Planetary Institute’s Apollo Image Atlas AS15-P-9625.

This object bears a striking resemblance to the cigar shaped Vimanas, or ancient flying craft, described in ancient Indian texts.
