The Unknown Moon


     It is already evident that the Moon will soon become a controversial object of different interests from the earth. Issues of colonization and other types of commercial exploration of our satellite are under serious discussion in some countries, including Russia and the United States - pioneers of the initial lunar exploration of the mid-20th century. It is also evident that something very important and precious can be derived from further exploration of the Moon, especially now, when technologies are far more advanced than ever before in the history of humankind. Recently, the US space agencies, such as ESA, NASA, and NASDA, as well as the official Russian Space Agency, have shown a highly elevated interest in new lunar programs, including plans to establish a human lunar base. NASA intends to return to the Moon in 2014 with a test flight of Orion spacecraft, while its new manned lunar mission is scheduled for 2019. As for Russia, there are plans to collaborate with China in a new wave of lunar research, including sending robotic probes and manned expeditions to the Moon in the near future. In addition, a European Meeting on future space exploration, that was held in Athens in May 2007, identified further close research of the Moon as one of the priority issues of the coming space programs.

     The lunar plans of humankind are obvious, at least those, which are aired for the general public. However, what do we really know about the Moon and how does that ignite such a hot new interest in further lunar research? Obviously, we know only what was made public from the Luna and Apollo eras of lunar voyages. Both Soviet and American lunar programs of the mid-20th century were space ventures of a high level of secrecy, and only bits of information were revealed for public use. Let us consider, for example, NASA. It might be a civilian agency, however, most if its astronauts and other employees have to obey strict military security regulations, and most of NASA activities are funded from the defence budget. NASA carefully screens and stores all images from the Moon and keeps many of them, as well as some contradictory lunar artefacts, in secret archives. Only a handful of images are open to the general public, and only a part of lunar material and samples are available outside of secret laboratories of NASA.

     It is admitted even by NASA officials that the Moon could hide a possible presence of alien life. Big domes standing on mighty basements, long lines of ruins, tunnels, and remnants of other constructions of unknown origin, which were found on the surface of the Moon, cannot be explained just by a play of natural forces, due to their even and complex geometrical designs. If we look closer at the artefacts scattered on landing sites of human lunar modules and caught on camera, we can notice that some of them resemble ruins of artificial constructions. Photographs from the lunar orbit show terrific rectangular and square lines of once geometrically designed formations that look like destroyed ancient cities. Those structures with even patterns are located in the areas of random geology and a chaotic landscape, as if they were deliberately placed there. If they were not created by lunar aboriginals, who placed them on the surface of the Moon? Numerous myths and legends of different historical cultures and nations of our planet speak of a gods' race that once populated the Earth. Could it be that the lunar artefacts and constructions have terrestrial origin and were created on the Moon by a human race that lived long ago and was definitely more advanced than we are now? It is interesting to add that we even do not know for sure the true origin of the Moon. Samples of lunar and earth rocks and soils reveal striking differences in their material and composition, which fairly contradicts to the prevailing scientific hypothesis of the "Big Whack" formation of the Moon. Who knows, maybe our satellite once was a part of a planetary structure with an advanced civilization originated somewhere deep in space, which colonized the Earth and gave birth to modern human races many thousands of years ago?

     In this connection, let us consider the issue of a lunar atmosphere, as breathable air is the most critical thing to sustain protein life forms as we know them. We are taught that the Moon does not have air, or at least that the lunar atmosphere is too scarce to breath. However, our current technologies of measuring an air level on the lunar surface are not advanced enough to produce unquestionable results. In the opinion of John Lear, an influential UFO specialist, the Moon sustains quite a tangible, yet thin, atmosphere, which is even suitable for short-term breathing!

Aristarchus Crater     The truth about the Moon is hidden, and some of it is hidden deliberately from the public in secret laboratories of NASA and other space agencies. Let us consider, say, a controversial enigma of much debated lunar Aristarchus Crater. Have you ever heard anything about it? Aristarchus Crater enigma is one of numerous so-called Transient Lunar Phenomena (or TLP). It is one of the brightest lunar occurrences, which changes colors, sometimes producing a red or bluish glow of electricity, and emits carbon gas. Among others, Aristarchus Crater's mysterious phenomena were closely observed in 1958 Aristarchus Craterby Russian astronomer N. Kozyrev and were reported by the crew of Apollo 11. No one really knows what it is, but the nature of the Crater's activities gives grounds to the theory that it could be some sort of a power device, possibly, a fusion reactor. It is interesting to point out that the Soviets had conducted a number of observations and research of Aristarchus Crater, and in 1950 came out with an invention of the first fusion generator, called Tokamak... However, the Aristarchus Crater phenomenon still remains an unexplained lunar mystery.

     The most frequent official explanation of terrific TLP is attributed to "astronauts' wild imagination", which, of course, does not explain anything. Numerous astronauts' reports of strange lunar "fleeting clouds", "flashes", and other brief changes of light and colour on the Moon's surface are just ignored by officials, or at least not covered much is the mass press. However, in 1968, just a year before Neil Armstrong first stepped onto the Moon, a NASA catalogue of TLP was published. That document featured almost six hundred unexplained lunar occurrences, which had been observed since the pre-telescopic year of 1540. The catalogue included the 1871 - 1896 reports from England's Royal Astronomical Society members, who observed lighted geometrical images on the Moon, later confirmed observations of oval moving lunar objects, and astronomers' reports on bridge-like constructions in the area of Mare Crisium. The NASA catalogue also mentioned a big and shiny cylindrical object that both Soviet and American researchers saw upon the surface of the Moon in 1958. By publishing that unprecedented set of documented evidence, NASA clearly acknowledged that the Moon might not be a dead world, but, actually, could be a cosmic body with some potentially dangerous and unknown phenomena.

Copernicus Crater     Later on, observations of unusual lunar occurrences became even more numerous. One of them, a huge lunar enigma, is hidden in Copernicus Crater anomalies. The site appears to resemble an ancient, or even a currently operating, strip mine. As the Moon lacks wind, air and water, the soil erosion cannot be involved in producing such a landscape, which reminds of a vast mining operation site with debris and rock piles and angled terraces. Numerous details of Copernicus Crater, such as ridges and mining ramps, look exactly like those of earth strip mines. Closer observations of the Crater photos reveal other phenomena, such as vapours of dust or smoke and shapes of buildings, platforms, giant excavators, village sites, and even an archway system. Terrific, indeed!

Copernicus Crater

Ukert CraterAnother riddle of the Moon is its Ukert Crater - one of the most obvious lunar phenomena of visibly artificial origin). The crater has an unusual triangular shape and its form remains unexplained. And what about the Shard, that was first photographed by the Apollo mission? The photographed object of a spindly geometrical shapeUkert Crater with some regular patterns is about 1 mile long and rises above the surface of the Moon. By analyzing the reflection of sunlight from the construction, researched have concluded that the Shard cannot be composed of a natural substance. The construction could be made of artificially-created polished metallic blocks and huge glass crystals. Also, it has to be noted that there is no natural force that can produce such an object and, if it is of natural origin, then the Shard is one of the greatest wonders of the entire Universe. Most probably, the Shard represents a partially eroded and artificially constructed ancient structure.

     There are many more unexplained lunar images, and we can only guess what they mean and who erected those mighty structures and created those fantastic Moon's TPL. Was the Moon a base of an ancient civilization or a prehistoric colony, or maybe it was a giant plant, an observatory, or a spacecrafts' launch site? Who knows, what if the Moon is still alive, but that life prefers to be hidden from us? Let us hope that future voyages to the Moon will reveal some of those still unexplained lunar mysteries!
