Moon Anomalies: The Castle

On the 2nd November 1966 The Washington Post ran a front page article entitled “Six Mysterious Statuesque Shadows Photographed on the Moon by Orbiter”. NASA Lunar Orbiter 2 had photographed an area on the moon (Mare Tranquilis) of approximately 30 by 50 kilometres. Photographs showed six or seven towers, appearing in a specific geometric pattern, rising from the lunar surface. Their pointed shadows indicated that they were either conical or pyramid-shaped. NASA countered that the photographs did not show anything of any interest. The Russian magazine, Argosy, published a communication from the Russian space scientist Alexander Abromov. He stated that the Russian Luna 9 probe, on landing on the Moon on the 4th February 1966, had taken some strange photographs of structures that stood out of the landscape in a precisely defined pattern.

An extraordinary object, in the Sinus Medii region of the Moon, was photographed on one of the Apollo lunar missions using a hand held Hasselblad camera (photo number AS10-32-4822). The structure, commonly referred to as the "Castle" is extremely bright and plainly visible at normal magnification. The photograph shows a remarkable stacking of segments that point to it being of artificial, rather than natural, construction.

The one-mile-long structure appears to be hanging some seven miles above the Lunar surface. It has been speculated that it could be the remnant of a huge glass dome. A cable appears to be passing through the tip of the structure.

Scientist and former NASA specialist, Richard Hoagland insists that there are other intriguing photographs of strange moon anomalies that are currently hidden deep inside NASA. Hoagland speculates that this information is being kept secret because NASA feels the public is not yet psychologically ready.

Moon Anomalies: The Shard

The Lunar Orbiter photograph and the three sequential photographs (NASA catalog SP-232: AS10-32-4822, AS10-32-4854, AS10-32-4855, and AS10-32-4856) taken from the Apollo 10 spacecraft show two massive anomalous structures commonly known as the Shard and the Tower. The photographs were taken in the south western area of Sinus Medii from different angles. A photograph taken by Surveyor 6 shows anomalous geometric structures extending to the north of the Tower for about a hundred miles.

The Shard towers to a height of more than one mile above the Moon's surface. No known natural process can explain the presence of such a structure. Computer enhancement of photographs shows an irregular outline. The amount of sunlight reflecting from parts of the Shard indicates a composition inconsistent with that of most natural substances. Only crystal, glass and highly polished metal can reflect light with the intensity of that emanating from the Shard. As a consequence, the Shard may be a remnant of an artificial structure, possibly an enormous glass dome.

The star-like object above the Shard is a camera registration mark. The Shard casts a shadow in a direction consistent with it being a real structure and not a photographic artefact. Blow-ups of photographs suggest a module-like internal structure. Above and behind the Shard is the Tower. This is an enormous 5 mile high structure with a central "cube" suspended by a tripod like base. Photographic enhancements of the Tower show a similar modular construction to the Shard, but with more of a hexagonal pattern.
