Conspiracy theorists have always been fascinated by dark secrets they believe are hidden on the moon. One YouTube user for example, believes he has discovered from Google Moon images, an alien like figure lurking in the deep crates of the satellites
Wowforreel shared a video that shows what he terms as an alien like figure seen walking on the surface of the moon. In less than a month, the figure has been seen more than two million times. It can also be seen on Google Moon at 27°34’26.35″N 19°36’4.75″W. The most likely explanation however, for this sighting would be a psychological phenomenon known as Pareidolia. It’s how the brain responds when it sees faces and significant objects in random stimulus.
Paranormal explainer, Tom Rose, explains that the figure resembles what the ancient statute ‘The Colossus of Rhodes’ was believed to have looked like before being felled by an enormous earthquake in 226 BC.
Wowforreel started his investigations on the shadow after Jasenko, another web user, gave him an online tip. “An irregularly shaped dark spot he noticed on Google Moon looks like it could be a cast shadow from a massive standing object, or figure,” he told UFO Sighting Daily. “At first I thought maybe it was something drawn into the picture but after going to Google Moon, whatever it is or isn’t…uh, is there.”
NASA provides the images used to create lunar images for Google Moon but they haven’t commented yet on what they think the image shows.
