Moon Anomalies: Giant Lunar Towers

There is growing evidence that, contrary to what we have been told, the US landed on the moon only to find that someone else had got there before them. This evidence may be disturbing to many, because it implies that a civilization, or civilizations, more advanced than our own has built enormous structures on the moon. This evidence comes not from some remote planet like Mars but from the Moon right above our heads.

Lobachevski crater.

In 1997 American researcher, Steven Wingate, discovered an anomaly in NASA image AS16-121-19407(H) shown below. The apparent structure looks like a huge tower standing at the rim of the Lobachevski crater on the ‘dark’ side of the moon. A distinct shadow cast by the structure is clearly visible on its right hand side.

More recently a probe launched by the European Space Agency (ESA) has also photographed a massive tower-like object on the inside perimeter of a crater on the far side of the moon. As shown below, the shadow cast by the structure is clearly visible on the left hand side. This image, taken by the advanced Moon Imaging Experiment (AMIE) on board ESA’s SMART-1 spacecraft, shows crater Lomonosov. AMIE obtained the image on the 30th January 2006 with a ground resolution of 190 metres per pixel. The imaged area is centred at a latitude of 27.8º North and a longitude of 98.6º East [AMI-EAE3-001856-00042-00038].

The Apollo 10 lunar orbiter photograph AS10-32-4822 and the three sequential photographs AS10-32-4854 - 56 all show two massively tall structures known as the "Tower" and the "Shard" in the southwestern area of Sinus Medii from different angles and different perspectives.

The Shard

The Shard is a structure which towers above the Moon's surface by more than a mile. Its overall irregular spindly shape, with constricted nodes and swollen inter-nodes, looks anything but natural. No known natural process can explain the presence of such a structure. Computer enhancement shows an irregular outline with more reflective and less reflective surfaces. The amount of sunlight reflecting from parts of the Shard indicates a composition consistent with crystal, glass or polished metal. Single crystals the size of city blocks are currently unknown. The Shard may be an eroded remnant of an artificial structure made of glass-like material.

The Tower

The Tower is even more massive than the Shard soaring to more than five miles above the surface of the Moon. It has been photographed from five different angles and two different altitudes (from 30 miles altitude, and from 70 miles altitude at three different distances). In all four photographs the same structure is visible and can be viewed from two different sides. The Tower exists in front of and to the left of the Shard in the Lunar Orbiter III-84M photograph. The distance from the Tower and the camera is estimated at about 200 miles, while the distance of the Shard beyond the Tower is estimated at about 230 miles. The top of the Tower has a very ordered cubic geometry, and appears to be composed of regular cubes (similar in size) joined together to form a very large cube with an estimated width of over one mile. There is apparent damage to the outline and surface of this structure. A narrow columnar structure appears to connect this cube with the surface of the Moon. The columnar support is at least three miles in height.

Six mysterious statuesque towers

Photographs of strange surface anomalies made the front page of a November 1966 edition of The Washington Post. NASA Lunar Orbiter 2 had photographed what appeared to be six or seven towers, arranged in a specific geometric pattern, in the Mare Tranquilis region of the moon. Their pointed shadows indicated that they were either conical or pyramid-shaped. One of the apparent towers measured over 200 metres in height. NASA countered that the photographs did not show anything of any interest… whatsoever. The Russian magazine Argosy published comments made by Russian space scientist Alexander Abromov. He stated that the Russian Luna 9 probe had, on landing on the Moon on the 4th February 1966, taken some strange looking photographs: structures that stood in the landscape in a distinct pattern. The tops of the structures appeared to have a profile similar to a pyramidion.

More lunar towers

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 air force 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.

Numerous massive towers have 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.

Image smudging to conceal a tower?

Attempts to conceal the towers may not have always been successful. As can be seen in the photograph below, a massive tower is clearly visible on an old NASA photograph enhanced using modern image processing technology. Many such photographs were taken out of the windows of orbiting NASA spacecraft at different angles and altitudes. The absence of shadow in the picture below could be explained by the sun being more or less overhead at the time of photographing.

Image enhanced lunar tower.

An investigator of lunar anomalies, Joseph P. Skipper, has carried out extensive searches of the Clementine photograph data base. He has come up with some very clear examples of attempts by censors to blur out images that look like massive towers. His website at is well worth a visit.


So what are the implications of the growling list of lunar anomalies that appear to be buildings and towers? Are these artificial constructions active or long abandoned? Who built them – men or aliens?

Why have the Americans kept quiet about these structures for so long? The most likely reason is that they still do not know what they are. Conventional archaeology does not allow for an ancient human super civilisation that was capable of space flight. The experts at NASA and the US military will therefore assume that what they have discovered on the moon is incontrovertible evidence that we are not alone in the universe – that an advanced alien intelligence is far closer to us than we ever dared to imagine.

Structures on the moon and Mars are a fact of the universe.
NASA and the government think we can not handle these and other truths. It is 2009 not 1949 and the people deserve the
truths and can handle them quite well.

I don't think so. Most people are panicky idiots. You and I might be able to handle it, but the whole of the population can't. Which is sad because it's painfully obvious there's intelligent life other than on Earth.

Actually I don't know that NASA and the government are all that concerned with how the people would be able to handle the information. More than likely, if NASA or any other government agency actually knew of the existence of intelligent aliens, they would probably keep that knowledge to themselves for their own benefit. For instance, it may be that they have some sort of agreement with the aliens that grants them access to special privileges or technologies. By keeping the presence of the aliens a secret, they would be able reap all the benefits of the special privileges or technologies themselves.

It's sort of like the proverbial guy who figured out how to make fire. If he didn't share his knowledge, then he would have been able to take advantage of his special skill and reap all the benefits of it. More than likely, if the government does have an agreement with some aliens, they aren't interested in sharing their advantages with everyone. They are motivated by selfishness, not concern.

If I were an alien visiting a world teeming with promising life, I might want to observe it for a while and to leave information where it could not be harmed and the natives had shown themselves advanced enough to use what was there. I might also want to establish bases for return observations. Establish contact? I think they might feel rather like the Chinese Emperor that if the barbarians are not advanced enough to come of their own accord, we have nothing worth saying to each other.

What if: The moon is a machine -- a lifeboat and "ark." It's hollow and "rings like a bell" when struck by space probes. It's the ideal space ship for transporting a large populations of dangerous outcasts (like humans) around the galaxy. It's huge, with mineral resources capable of sustained life-support and generating great power over long periods; and because of its uninteresting appearance, it's able to through galaxies without attracting attention from hostile forces. At 2,160 miles in diameter (6 x 6 x 6 in units of 10 miles),it's 108 times its own diameter from the earth -- as is the sun, an impossible ratio, which enables us to have statistically impossible total solar eclipses -- and that's what made astronomical confirmation of Einstein's theory of relativity possible. Also, despite a number of theories trying to explain its presence above us, the moon is not supposed to be there -- and yet it makes life possible on earth by providing the ocean tides necessary for plankton survival. The moon brought our ancestors to earth, and it will take our refugees somewhere else when the forces hunting us find us. Sounds like a plot for a great sci-fi novel -- or maybe it's the truth. :)

Amazing thought Roscoe! I do really believe we´re not alone, and wouldn´t be surprised if we would find out that "aliens" are humans in such a level of evolution lightyears ahead of us, that would be able to explore the mind in a very unknown way. We have many constructions all over the Earth that it´s hard to explain how they could have been built thousand of years ago, without the aparatus available today. Are we able to face the truth, even if we´re not ready yet?

If the sun is directly overhead in the last "digitally enhanced" photograph, then why are the craters casting shadows to the left? If the sun were directly overhead, you would be able to see the bottoms of the craters. Ergo, the photo has definitely had some "touchups" -- to add the anal bead tower thingy.

Come on guys! A hollow moon? Do you know how stupid that sounds? The FACT that we have tides proves the moon is WAY too massive to be hollow. I think maybe a few heads here are hollow though.

Very interesting comments here. I do believe there's more than us. More than just other intelligent life. I believe our science AND religions are ALL part of a BIGGER EQUATION. You cannot have one without the other. The religion gives science a need to explore for answers. The science is needed to solidify/justify the religion. If you really do your "homework" and study up on some science and religions, you'll find that there is a coherency between them. Science is now answering some of Religions oldest, unanswered questions. There's a theory that "Heaven" may actually be a REAL place in our universe!!! Possibly some 541 light years away. Not sure about the legitimacy of that one (cool thought though), but I've seen how science is now able to prove what our oldest cultures knew and how some of our greatest technological mysteries can be answered. I think there's a WAY BIGGER picture that we are just now starting see through clues left behind by our ancestors. Look up HD/Torsion physics. It's a new science that's being more or less "hidden" or denied by mainstream science and media. In reality, it proves that Einstein had actually created/figured out THE UNIFIED FIELD THEORY back in the 50's!!!! Problem was that no one knew how to understand it or what it ment(or maybe they did) and thus it was labeled as "unfinished". HD/Torsion Physics answers those weird anomalies that current science can't explain. Theory stands that utilizing this science, you could create a field in which an object within that field would "weigh less" or more plainly, is dramatically less affected by the forces gravity. With this new perspective, the Egyptian Pyramids seem rather simplistic to build and could have been done by as little as one man. Theoretically, a child could have built them if he had the right tools. Sounds odd/crazy, yes I know. I said the same thing :) Then I did a little research after I had an interesting conversation with a few good friends. Well, that little research has turned into many years of answering questions, and at the same time finding more questions to be answered. All I know is that we are living in some exciting times and I am anxiously awaiting to see the results.

If you must know Mr. "Anonymous"- last one- you gave us food for thought (at least for me!). I´m glad that little by little we find people that may have a ponit of view.

If I were an advanced race visiting the ancient people of the Nile thousands of years ago,I would want to teach the priests the origin of the universe in cartoon form using plays and dramas to illustrate and reenforce.I would leave a tradition of progressive steps in the process of our Stellar fusion that can be understood in the mythology I established using
masks and crowns to denote the nature of the character portrayed and the power they represent
in sequence as it is in nature.
This seems to be the case concerning the Eight
principles of Creation as taught at Annu.

Lobochevsky crater - are you trying to say that there can be no rock formations that jut from the surroundings? The color or brightness values of the "tower" are the same as the surrounding rock, so it is probably rock. If it were bright white, you might have something there. Also, if you were going to build a tower, why build it half way down the crater rim? I'd put my tower on the highest point around, or at least in the middle of a flat field. It makes no sense that anyone would build a tower in that position.

Lunar Towers - come on! I have seen these "smudges" many times. as a person with lots of computer experience I can tell you it is merely flaws in the data. See how regularly spaced the flaws are? Besides, if NASA wanted to edit out features on the moon, I can tell you now that it wouldn't be such an amatuerish job as that. get real.

The Shard - the photo is way too indistinct to tell what it is. Common sense tells me it is most likely NOT a structure.

Mare Tranquillis towers - It would have been nice to see a pic of these towers.

Image Enhanced Tower - Nice. So what did the original look like? What was done to "enhance" this photo? Without something to compare it to, or explanation of what was done, it might as well be a drawing superimposed on the picture.

Many of us would like to see some evidence of alien intelligent life, but blindly abandoning logic and common sense does no good whatsoever. Rather it calls into question the judgement of those who see what they want, when common sense has a much more believable explanation.

I have no doubt that the government has plenty of evidence of aliens, but to think that they would EVER be so incompetent to let something slip by several levels of security checks is very naive

Dear friends, there can also be a possibility about an extinct prehistoric race, the hindu scriptures if studied carefully seems as if they are talking practical quantum physics, many great scientists referred to the vedas as the ultimate knowledge pool being avoided by mainstream scientists, books have been found named vimanashasthra which literelly translates in to the book of ships, vimana meant sir planes,, they have detailed description and even flight manuals in those books, propulsion systems, the clothes that a pilot should wear,, and yaa there are numerous accounts of space flights to moon and even an account of an aerial combat on the moon with what hindus called ashwins(some believe a word for the atlanteans)..this can really be the case as they are not active bases, they are ruins,, and what if the UFOs that we see belong to our ancestors only

NASA says, "We can't tell you because you couldn't handle the truth." Translation: "We won't tell you because you're not in our secret club." Arrogant little snots we're paying to be in such positions of authority, aren't they?

I firmly believe in the possibility of civilisations having existed or are currently existing in this solar system.

However I'm also a scientist and I just wish that people would take the time to post links to the source imagery.

IMHO The original h-res image of guyot crater shows that the tower is an optical illusion. Nasa calls it a lava flow! but looks more like a landslip following a surface strike that has disloged some dark subsurface material.

heres the link, judge for yourself

Have you ever seen the history channel show, life after humans?
in 50 thousand years, there will be absolutely no evidence of our existence. who is to say that advanced societies haven't developed in the planet before? This might be remanents of an earthen intelligent race that went extinct, like we will.

When you say that the tower has been bombarded by Space rocks, I don't belive it, because it whould have been destroyed. I
think it is a Tower for ships to come into and the holes are portoles, and is probbly still in use. Why because I have a photo and tape ofa object that looks like a tower with hole in it for UFO to come in and do what they do, there Mother ships.

The "Tower" I'm referring to is the one on sinus medii
photographed by the orbiter mission of `62 that is purported to be aprox. seven miles tall,made of a sparkling black matrix of basalt silicate as the base it sits on,with a sparkling lighter-grey top structure
that looks like a pitted upraised cables and
lines can be seen draped from the top to the surrounding area.
I agree with JEFF,It's all about technology aquisition,application,replication and denial.NASA couldn't care less if people can't process this into their faith systems.

Thank you for posting this stuff ....hopefully lots more people will recognize it. People need to know the TRUTH!

Moon is our mysterious neighbor. More we know about other planets than moon.

No doubt,there are things found on the moon that could shatter humanity's homo-centristic tradition
of denial to any intelligence other than his own.
A planetary awareness will bring another Coprinicus
Revolution that we are not ignored or blundered upon,
but studied and effected by powerful interests not our
own.I recently saw a photo of a hole on the moon that was not created by meteor or volcanic activity.The width was hundreds of feet wide and deep.The bottom was lit enough to see it is conical with enough room for a craft to fly into and be concealed.Crater Shorty is my favorite because Hoagland says there is crash debris scattered on the floor of it;and it looks like it might on closer inspection.Our last trip to the moon went there.

There are compelling evidence of artifacts like giant towers, bulidings and small structures which are clearly visible

Check these images : AS15-82-11084HR, AS15-82-11085HR. You can see a clear image of artifacts. It seems to be debris of some artifacts or could have been an alien craft crashed there?

Check the link: Amazing Artifacts - AS15-82-11084HR

Chek this image of lunar Tower-3085_med from NASA website. You will be amazed. Its incredible! One cannot deny the truth that this structure is made artificially because no geological phenomenon can explain such type of structures

I beleive we need to know the truth, and yes we can handle the truth much better then back in 1949. But this would cause a huge issue which is why im guessing they dont reveal the truth and that is religion. As if it is proven that Aliens exist it makes most if not all religious groups obsolete, which i personly beleive would be a plus, but these would be the people that they refer to that couldn't handle the truth
