The Moon has fascinated human beings since the dawn of time. As well it might. It truly is one of the most mysterious celestial bodies, not only in our solar system but anywhere in space. With that in mind, then, it is no surprise that as soon as we obtained the capability to travel there, we would do.

Why have we never returned to the Moon?

Why, though, have we not returned? After six successful missions to our cosmic neighbor, with several more missions already planned and budgeted for, the missions to the Moon suddenly stopped. And what’s more, despite advancements in technology and space exploration, no further manned missions have taken place.

When Gene Cernan, Jack Schmitt, and Ronald Evans, set foot back on Earth in December 1972 following their successful Apollo 17 mission to the Moon, they would become the last humans to have trodden on the lunar service.

We will look at some of the possible reasons, and conspiracies, regarding why we haven’t been back to the Moon (at least not to the public’s knowledge) shortly. And indeed, what was behind the sudden drive to get there. First, however, we should look at some of the bizarre anomalies of our nearest cosmic body.

Indeed, these anomalies, if accurate, might indeed suggest an altogether alternative NASA agenda other than mere space exploration. One that would not only change what we know of the Moon but our entire reality and those in charge of it.

Before we delve into this fascinating subject take a moment to check out the video below. Footage from the first Moon landing in July 1969.

Anomalies Of The Moon

While it is essential for supporting life and seasonal conditions on Earth, something ancient people were seemingly well aware of, it is also an object of bizarre coincidences [1] that just might be anything but.

For example, the Moon is exactly four-hundred times smaller than the Sun. Its distance from the Earth, in relation to the overall distance to the Sun, is exactly 1/400th. And these figures are not approximate – they are exact. It is these precise measurements that allow for us on Earth to experience total eclipses, something which wouldn’t happen if the measurements were “out” in any way. Just for perspective, the chances of that occurring “naturally” is literally zillions to one. It is also perhaps worth noting that, to the best of known knowledge, no other moon acts in this way.

It isn’t just its size either. Even its rotation around the Earth is so exact and without deviation that one side of the Moon is permanently hidden from us. What’s more, its orbit is perfectly circular as opposed to elliptical as all other known moons.

Even the many craters on the Moon, which most of us are aware of, are anomalous. More specifically, they are all of a similar depth. This, according to accepted science, shouldn’t be the case. In fact, the craters should look completely opposite to how they appear, with greater variation in depth.

Some researchers and conspiracy theorists have suggested the reason for this is that the Moon is an artificial structure with a metallic “casing” underneath the rocky surface. We will examine this in a little more detail later, as well as the notion that the Moon might even be a hollow object. Mainstream thinking suggests these crater anomalies are due to the “high velocities” of the striking meteors.

What Was The “Something” That Put The Moon In Orbit?

Further still, how it came into being in the first place is unknown. Accepted thinking that it is the result of a small planet-like object colliding with the Earth millions of years ago is guesswork at best. And not very likely, particularly given the Moon being much younger than the Earth. In fact, there are ample reasons to pursue the idea that the Moon was “placed” into orbit.

Perhaps we should note the writings of William Roy Shelton who would state:

It is important to remember that something had to put the moon in or near its current circular pattern around the Earth. It is very unlikely that any object just stumbles on the right combination of factors needed to help an object stay in orbit. ‘Something’ had to put the moon on its altitude, on its course and speed. The question is, what was that ‘something?

Indeed, much of what we “know” about the Moon is theories and guesswork. While many mainstream scientists will dispute that notion, it is perhaps the only hard fact about what we know of the history of our life-giving and vital satellite.

In fact, some researchers, perhaps most notably Russian scientists, Mijail Vasin, and Alexander Shcherbakov, suggest that the Moon is not a naturally occurring celestial object at all, but the result of extraterrestrial intervention.

In a 1970 article in Sputnik magazine titled, Is The Moon A Creation Of Extraterrestrial Design? they would claim that the Moon was “placed here” long ago and was “not completely natural”. [2]

The short video below looks at this notion a little further. Might the Moon actually be of “intelligent design” and not a natural object? And, as we will examine later, might those of high-rank in the NASA Apollo missions have been aware of this?

Is The Moon Too Good To Be True?

Russian professor of biochemistry, Issac Asimov would write:

…we cannot help but come to the conclusion that the Moon, by rights, ought not to be there. The fact that it is, is one of those strokes of luck almost too good to accept…Small planets, such as Earth, with weak gravitational fields, might well lack satellites…In general, then, when a planet does have satellites, those satellites are much smaller than the planet itself. Therefore, there would be every reason to suspect (the Moon) would be a tiny world, perhaps 30 miles…but it is a giant satellite, 2,160 miles in diameter. How is it, then, that tiny Earth has one? Amazing!

He is certainly not alone in questioning the “facts” of the Moon. Other scientists also offer their apparent frustration and not being able to explain the existence of our cosmic neighbor.

For example, Irwin Shapiro of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics would state, “The best explanation for the Moon is an observational error”. Similarly, Robin Brett, a scientist for NASA would claim that “it seems easier to explain the non-existence of the Moon than its existence”.

Might it be that there is ample reason to keep the true nature of the Moon a mystery? Might the Apollo missions have succeeded in uncovering proof of a previous civilization on the Moon? One that must now remain out of the public conscious? After all, the instruction in the Brookings Report stated very clearly that “if they (the astronauts) saw anything”, they were “not to talk about it” as it would undo the fabric of our civilization. [3]

Before we examine some of the reasons for such a sudden stop to the greatest human achievements in space exploration, let’s look at some of the conspiracies that surround the Space Race and the Moon landings themselves.

The Politics Of The Space Race

In the years following the end of the Second World War both the United States and the Soviet Union, as well as locking themselves in a war of ideologies in the Cold War, would enter into a battle to reach the stars. Indeed, international politics and jockeying for positioning on the world stage was as much behind the desire to get to the Moon as anything else.

Indeed, the ‘Space Race’ was one of the biggest preoccupations of both the United States and the Soviet Union for much of the 1950s and 1960s, and then, albeit, at a slightly intense level for the remainder of the Soviet regime. Initially, the Soviets appeared out in front of their American counterparts. That, of course, was overturned dramatically with the Moon landing of July 1969.

The goal to land a man on the moon was solidified when Kennedy announced the US would accomplish it by the end of the 1960s. The Soviets never made a serious effort to try for a manned moon landing, instead concentrating on developing the Salyut and Mir space station programs. The Americans themselves began to explore the concept of space stations, particularly in the 1980s with Reagan’s infamous ‘Star Wars Program’.

Perhaps it is worth noting the conspiracy claims that the reasons for wrapping up the Apollo missions was to allow for secret, black budget programs away from public scrutiny, and secretly working with the Soviet Union, no less.

While the Americans and Russians would ultimately work together on what would become International Space Station, for decades after the war that notion would have been almost unthinkable. If any proof should ever surface of such secret collaborations between the two during the Cold War period, it would bring into question an avalanche of other issues.

The Science And The Multiple Benefits Of Space Exploration!

Landing on the moon produced many benefits, of that there is no doubt. Practically every electronic device in use today had its beginnings in the space program: transistors, digital mobile devices, breast cancer screeners, heart defibrillators, weather satellites, automated teller machines, to name just a few. Indeed, the argument against the exploration of space – of “money being better spent elsewhere” – is a tired one, and ill-researched at best.

Again, while there is no absolute proof, rumors have circulated for years that secret space programs were taking place. And while we have examined some of the more outlandish claims of time-traveling super soldiers and secret space colonies, there are others that revolve around the testing of terrestrial weapons in a “space environment”.

Of course, the fact that such technological advancements gripped the second half of the twentieth century has led some to question where such technology came from?

For example, while there is no doubt that the American government, military, and intelligence agencies benefitted greatly from the “brilliant minds” of some of the top Nazi scientists and engineers through their transplantation to American soil through Operation Paperclip (something we will come back to a little later), many firmly believe the (now) infamous Roswell Crash gifted the American military with a plethora of advanced alien technology that not only assisted their journey into space, but helped turn America and many other countries of “The West” into the technologically advanced collection of metropolises they are today.

While the space race certainly provided society with all manner of conveniences there are some who firmly believe the origins of those technological marvels were the result of the crashed Roswell UFO. And what’s more, as we will look at shortly, they believed they would find more of it on the Moon.

Transient Lunar Phenomenon

Even before humans began to even imagine they might walk on the Moon’s surface, humans have noticed strange phenomena and bizarre activity.

For centuries a series of “transient lunar phenomenon” have been reported on or above the moon’s surface. These anomalies include unexplained flashes of light, strange clouds of various colors, glowing spots and more. In 1178, several monks noticed a huge flaming torch on the moon. In 1787, Sir William Herschel, a well-known British astronomer, detected three red glowing spots on the dark portion of the moon. J.F. Julius Schmidt, noted lunar observer, noticed a significant change in the Linné crater in 1866.

Soviet astronomer Nikolai A. Kozyrev saw a half-hour long eruption on a peak of the Alphonsus crater in 1958. In 1968, NASA published a summary of an investigation into these phenomenons. Known as Document R-277, it listed 9600 strange occurrences on the lunar surface over hundreds of years. And the mysteries continue. As recently as 1992, French scientists detected anomalies on the floor of the crater known as Langrenus.

The New York Herald Tribune science editor once related his observation of a 12-mile long bridge-like structure on the edge of a crater. It appeared out of nowhere. In preparation for Apollo missions, Orbiter 3 was sent to get advance photos of the moon. There have been many more since. We will look at some of these in detail shortly.

A Small Step Before A Giant Cover-Up?

While the world looked on in celebration and fascination at the astronauts over 200,000 miles away from them, on a piece of rock careering around the planet at hundreds of thousands of miles per hour, the astronauts themselves were taking in their alien surroundings. And that, according to some UFO researchers, is a statement closer to the truth than most might at first suspect.

The television audience could hear the exchanges between the astronauts and mission control at Houston, Texas. What most were unaware of, was the astronauts had access to another line – one that the audience couldn’t hear. The reasons for this were simple enough. If they had any kind of emergency or simply anything of a personal nature that they didn’t want millions of people to hear, they could switch to this channel. It was also open to use for other, predetermined purposes.

According to one former astronaut, Neil Armstrong, the first man to set foot on the Moon would switch to this channel and state to the medical officer in Houston that:

They’re here, they’re parked on the side of the crater (and) they’re watching us!

Buzz Aldrin would also claim to have witnessed bizarre activity:

I saw this illumination that was moving with respect to the stars. We were smart enough to not say ‘Houston, there’s a light out there that’s following us’. So technically, it is an unidentified flying object!

You can view a short view clip below that features Aldrin speaking a little more about his experiences on the Moon.

The “Two Minute Silence” Conspiracy

During the broadcast, a total silence of two minutes ensued. Many at home feared the worst. Relief swept the nation when their heroes voices came back over the airwaves. Many UFO researchers believe a hasty conversation was taking place on the “other” line. And what’s more, it concerned what the men could see – huge saucer-like craft, watching them.

Was there an alien presence on the Moon that the first Apollo astronauts were immediately aware of? Had they been briefed on the very real possibility of such a scenario or was this a genuine unforeseen development?

And what of the five missions that would follow theirs? If, as some conspiracies suggest, this alleged alien presence was the reason for the sudden halt to the Moon missions, then why were five further missions allowed to proceed?

Many HAM radio operators would claim to have picked up on the frequency. What’s more, some of them claimed to have recorded the conversation. According to the rumors, claims, and conspiracies that followed, Buzz Aldrin would state that UFOs were “lined up waiting for us!” This would corroborate the apparent claims made by Armstrong on the private broadcast line.

Whether the recording of Aldrin speaking during this mysterious two minutes ever finds its way into the public domain remains to be seen, if indeed it was something more than just a mere technical malfunction.

As we will examine in a moment, the following two missions to the Moon courtesy of Apollo 12 and 13 in November 1969 and April 1970 respectively, would raise further questions about the Moon. And its true nature.

The video below looks at some the alleged interceptions by HAM radio operators.

The “Music” From The Far Side Of The Moon

The Two Minute Silence is far from the only conspiracy surrounding the Apollo Moon missions. In May 1969, two months before the historic Moon landing, the crew of the Apollo 10, who would orbit the Moon over thirty times, would report hearing “outerspacy” sounds or music as they went around the dark side of the celestial satellite, and out of signal of the NASA team on Earth.

You can listen to that recording below.

What’s more, it wasn’t until 2008 that knowledge of the incident entered the public domain. The astronauts themselves found the incident unnerving, to say the least. So much so that they were reticent to mention it to their superiors when radio contact was reestablished several minutes later.

NASA would claim that the “music” was, in fact, interference between the VHF radios of the Lunar Module and Command Module. This could very well be the case. However, perhaps to be expected, some believed a cover-up of the sounds was in place. After all, they remained secret for almost four decades. Indeed, why did NASA feel the need to remain quiet about what was seemingly just “radio interference”.

You can watch a little more discussion on this below.

“If There Was Something Recorded, Then There’s Something There!”

In truth, the audio files have been available since the early-1970s. NASA simply hadn’t mentioned it. And, at a time when the Internet was still a dream of the distant future, such information could quite easily, as it has here, remain hidden for decades. Was it, though, as some claim, a case if hiding such incidents in plain sight?

Might the “music”, for example, have been an intercepted signal? Perhaps an extraterrestrial one? Might it have even come from the Moon itself. As we will examine shortly, there are several theories and claims that suggest the Moon is inhabited, maybe even hollow.

And what’s more, it isn’t only conspiracy theorists who making such claims. Al Worden, an astronaut on the Apollo 15 mission is on record saying:

Logic tells me that if there was something recorded on there, then there’s something there!

Furthermore, what were essentially gagging orders on astronauts of the Apollo missions meaning they could not speak publicly of any strange incidents they may witness on the missions, do nothing to quash such rumors.

While it is an incident that on its own is interesting but something that can easily be put to one side. However, when put alongside the plethora of conspiracies and claims that envelope the moon missions, it is certainly an intriguing recording.

The Dark Side Of The Moon

Although some people call it the Far Side of the Moon, the Dark Side is so-called as it is a part of our cosmic neighbor that we have yet to fully explore. As we will look at a little later, China would land a probe in this far side of the Moon in early 2019 and send back possibly the clearest images yet.

The reason we do not see this “other” side of the Moon is due to it rotation matching that of the Earth. This means that only one side is visible to us. Of course, if we subscribe to the claims that the Moon is an artificial creation, then such a unique orbit would perhaps be understandable.

While we will examine such things as an alien presence on the Moon, and even the remains of extraterrestrial bases residing in this dark area, other theories suggest that some kind of secret mining operation is taking place there. Or even top-secret testing of nuclear weapons.

Other claims suggest that a secret space program has established a human colony on the Moon from where it builds space operable vehicles – spaceships. While this is speculation at best, it is certainly interesting. Might UFO sightings be the testing of human-made spacecrafts based on the Moon? And if so, where did this technology come from? And why all the rampant secrecy?

This part of the Moon has been the subject of numerous conspiracies. Might there be good reason for that? If we return a moment to the unique physical aspects of the Moon, it leads to claims and theories, as outrageous as they are to some, that force us to reexamine what we think we know of our celestial partner.

Might The Moon Have More Secrets To Divulge?

Indeed, while most believe the Moon came from a “Mars-like” object crashing into the Earth, sending what would become the Moon blasting into orbit as a result. However, recent studies suggest that the size of the Earth itself by comparison to the Moon would mean the new satellite would submit to the pull of the Earth and crash back into its host shortly after formation.

The fact is, that most of what we “know” about the Moon purely guess-work, much like the rest of the Universe. And while that doesn’t mean that we are free to apply whatever outrageous version of events fits our own respective narratives the best, there is ample room for speculation on such matters.

As we have already examined, the dimensions of the Moon are so precise, as its location, that to some it is a purposeful creation. One that without which, life on Earth, at least as we know it, would be drastically different, perhaps even impossible.

Perhaps there may be some truth, then, however partial or fractured, that such a vital part of life here on Earth was purposely planned and not merely the result of luck and random happenings? Might the Moon be of more interest and hold more secrets about our collective history than most of us could imagine?

Before we move on and examine some of these, to some, outlandish theories and suggestions about the true origins and purpose of the Moon, check out the short video below. It looks at the Dark Side of the Moon a little further.

A Hollow Object?

Even before the Apollo missions began the many experiments and tests as part of their remit, as far back as the early-1960s people were questioning the composition of the Moon. In 1962, NASA scientist, Dr. Gordon MacDonald would write:

If the astronomical data are reduced, it is found that the data require that the interior of the moon be less dense than the outer parts. Indeed, it would seem that the moon is more like a hollow than a homogeneous sphere!

As Apollo 12 left the Moon’s surface on their way back to Earth, they purposely jettisoned their rocket boosters. They crashed into the Moon’s surface close to where the astronauts had left seismic measuring equipment. What followed would stun NASA scientists.

The Moon “reverberated like a bell” and would do so for close to an hour. This could only happen to a hollow body. On the following mission, Apollo 13, the experiment would proceed again, only this time the rocket boosters were purposely heavier. The result though was much the same, only this time the reverberating continued for over three hours.

Does this suggest that the Moon might indeed be hollow? Had the “ringing” happened on one occasion only then it might be possible to write it off as an anomaly. However, the fact the same result occurred on each of the Apollo 12 and 13 missions suggests, as bizarre as it sounds, that the Moon is indeed hollow.

If that is the case, what does that say about our cosmic satellite? If the Moon is hollow, does that offer credibility to the claims that NASA’s real intention to reach it in order to explore and obtain for themselves, ancient extraterrestrial technology left on, or within, its surface.

The video below looks at this theory.

Secret Societies And A Continuation Of The Nazi Hunt For Alien Technology?

We mentioned earlier that many of the scientists and engineers who would help the Americans win the space race and reach the Moon before their Cold War nemesis Soviet Union, were relocated (and in some cases their crimes glossed over) from Nazi Germany where they had made the Third Reich the most formidable and advanced force on the planet for several years.

We know, for example, that many of the MKUltra programs, at least the basics of them, began in the Nazi concentration camps. Some of those doctors undoubtedly continued their work for the American government as the twentieth century unfolded. We would imagine, then, that would very much be the case for their race to the stars.

Much like Wernher Von Braun, who is considered the father of the US space program. While there appears to be no links of actual Nazism to Von Braun, as their leading rocket engineer, would have had access to the Nazis most secret technologies. Some researchers insist that technology was not all terrestrial.

We have examined previously claims that much of the Apollo landings, specifically the Apollo 11 mission, was awash with Masonic rites and ancient esoteric rituals. And while such things could be coincidental, when we realize how much importance certain members of the “elite” place on esoteric leanings (to which many Nazis belonged) it again raises the question of how much credence such bizarre claims might actually have.

Indeed, if we accept the idea of secret knowledge remaining out of the public arena and instead traveling across generations through secret societies and bloodline, then it very much might be the case, given the connections to Masonic beliefs, that those in charge of the Moon missions may have known exactly what was awaiting them once they arrived on the Moon.

Artificial Structures

Although there are various claims of airbrushing photographs, NASA has uploaded a plethora of images online. Many of these have gone under intense scrutiny by eagle-eyed enthusiasts, and the claims of “alien bases” are plentiful. And when you view the highlighted images, it is easy to understand why.

‘The Shard’ for example, has many researchers more than enthusiastic and appears in NASA Photograph Lunar Orbiter frame LO-III-84-M. It appears to show an artificial structure of some kind. Researchers have theorized it to be anything from an “alien outpost” to a huge relic of an ancient alien civilization. The fact it appears to cast a shadow rules out it being an “optical illusion” as offered by NASA.

Another image that appears to show something far from natural on the moon’s surface is one known as ‘The Tower’, whose location, coincidentally or not, is near the above anomaly. Estimates state the height of The Tower to be around seven miles. This would likely not be achievable on Earth. But due to the considerably weaker gravity on the moon, such accomplishments would arguably be possible.

NASA photograph AS10-32-4822, which was a product of one of the Apollo missions, appears to show a castle-like structure, hence its moniker in UFO circles is simply, ‘The Castle’. What is particularly strange about this bizarre picture is that the structure appears to be floating above the surface of the moon.

The video below looks at just some of the alleged artificial structures on the moon.

Aliens On The Moon?

While there is little to back up the claims of what the astronauts were speaking about (if anything) during those two minutes, it is widely accepted in the UFO community, even by some of the most skeptical of researchers, that “something” was happening. If reports are accurate, within thirty minutes of the historic landings, rumblings and rumors were careering around NASA’s control room that “there was something else there!”

Although the date is unclear, at some time in the early 2000s, alleged leaked footage from Project Blue Book appeared online. It shows a tall, alien being looking at the astronaut’s position. While it is highly likely to be a fake, it is worth including here. If only because, as we will see shortly, there are claims upon claims of alien beings inhabiting the moon.

According to the source, these events happened during the two-minute silence, with the video feed blocked from going out publicly. You can check out the video in question below. Below that is a piece of footage from the Apollo 8 mission. As always, make of them what you will.


In 2012, footage also surfaced online that appears to show several crafts leaving the Moon’s surface. And then jettisoning off into space. An experienced astronomer would capture the footage. He himself would state he filmed “thirteen orbs probably starting from a secret alien moon base!” There are many more such pieces of footage. And a simple search of YouTube, for example, will return many results.

You can view the 2012 video footage below. While the footage below that is the same piece but increased in quality.


Human, Extraterrestrial, Of Both?

The many mysterious pictures of the Moon’s surface are not definitive proof of alien bases or even top-secret military bases. They are, though, too numerous and too defined (relative speaking) to ignore and dismiss entirely.

If we assume for a moment these images do show artificial structures, then who built them? Are they the product of a secret space program? One operational since the second half of the twentieth century? Some people find the notion completely crazy. There are, however, numerous documents and whistle-blowers that state such projects are true.

Or might they be the remnants of a long-ago civilization? If secret space programs do exist, perhaps these ancient structures are of use to the military complex today. Perhaps there are reverse-engineering programs taking place there.

Or might these structures belong to an unknown terrestrial civilization of Earth? One who ventured out to the celestial body some time in pre-history? Might either of these potential civilizations have been responsible for “placing” the moon where it resides today? In order to “settle” the planet? Many ancient texts have references that allude to “a time before the moon” for example. Many Zulu legends tell of the dragging of the moon into position from somewhere far away.

These are all questions still without answers.

What, Or Who’s Inside The Moon?

If we return to the Hollow Moon theory, it does answer a lot of the anomalies and coincidences that we have discussed earlier. It also makes some of the conspiracies surrounding the moon a little more plausible, perhaps even likely.

We have written before of the Project Redsun conspiracy and the alleged finds of “Mona Lisa”. We have also delved into such claims as those of Alex Collier. He would state the moon was a transport ship. One that brought “reptilians, human-reptilian hybrids, and the first humans to set foot on Earth!”

Going back to some of the anomalies we looked at in the opening lines of this piece, if the Moon was “placed into position”, and “designed” to the exact specifics for its predetermined purpose (which would appear to be the stabilization of Earth), then those who carried such a mammoth task would have to not only have the technical capability but the advanced knowledge. Barring an unknown terrestrial civilization, that would only leave an extra-terrestrial race.

As far back as the 1970s, two ex-NASA specialists said that NASA astronauts had repeatedly told the space administration that they had seen aliens on the surface of the moon. One expert named Marchant claimed in a 1978 book that a couple of UFOs were hovering in the area just before Apollo 11 made the famous landing. In his book Our Cosmic Ancestor, Maurice Chatelain, a former NASA insider, shows transcripts of radio transmissions between several Apollo missions and the mission control base. The astronauts describe alien spaceships lining several craters, observing the Armstrong moonwalk.

Around the same time, admittedly when such notions as the ancient astronaut theory were beginning to spread into the wider populace, several NASA insiders would claim the Apollo missions had found evidence of a “past civilization”.

The Moon – An Ancient “War Carrier” From Elsewhere In The Universe?

If Alex Collier is correct, and the Moon was essentially a space station that was “maneuvered” into position while doubling as a huge transportation ship bringing humans and reptilian beings to “seed” the Earth with, then what is inside the Moon now? Is it merely the remains of such ancient transportation of a bygone age? Or might it still be “functional” today? And for what purpose?

Collier writes in Letters From Andromeda:

The Moon is hollow. It contains huge underground facilities built by E.T.’s and later humans from Earth. There are seven openings into the Moon’s crust and the underground bases. Conservative scientists have wondered why so many craters seem so shallow, despite their size. The Andromedans say it’s because much of the surface was built on top of a metallic shell of a circular space crest; or “A War Carrier”, as the Andromedans describe it! [4]

Many conspiracies state that is exactly the case. And Collier himself asserts around 30,000 people and extraterrestrials currently reside at bases on the moon. What’s more, there are plans to move more selective elements of the Earth’s population there.

Collier also, whether intentionally or not, lends credence to the idea of secret societies and government elites carrying out secret-agenda driven missions to the Moon. In the same publication he writes:

When the Apollo astronauts landed on the moon, the World Order had been there for some time. This knowledge and technology was withheld from the lower levels of NASA and our military. NASA has been used as a blind to keep people from truly knowing what was going on there. The astronauts were silenced under threats and remain so today!

We should note that many dismiss Collier’s claims unreservedly.

The short video below that briefly looks into this theory a little further.

A Chilling If Speculative Connection?

If there really is a joint alien-human presence on the moon, what purpose would it really serve? We have written before of the alleged meeting between President Eisenhower and various extra-terrestrial leaders in 1954.

If that meeting did take place and the details of the apparent deal are true, then such bases on the moon begin to make a little more sense. As do some of the details given of abductees.

One question always put forward by UFO skeptics is the logistics of traveling through deep space. This could be overcome (theoretically at least) by use of advanced propulsion systems. Or with knowledge and use of portals or wormholes. Of course, if an alien civilization (or a deployment of one) existed on the moon, there would be no need for such logistical challenges to be solved.

Again, assuming their crafts still had some kind of advanced propulsion, it would surely be possible to take abductees to secret, secure bases on the moon.

Many abductees also speak of being able to see the Earth through some kind of “portal” or “window”. Might it be that they really did see the Earth? However, from a base on the surface of the moon? Many speak of endless rooms, like medical bays, that they either awaken in or walk into through a long corridor. Are these rooms not on the crafts themselves, but in an actual lunar facility?

Some abductees also speak of a “human, military presence” during their abduction, often low-key and in the background. If alien abductees do end up at these facilities, does this also offer some partial proof of joint alien-human lunar bases? As well as cooperation by the military in the human abductions?

China’s Moon Mission And Claims Of A “Military Base”

More recently, as China pushes ever onward in their attempts to reach the Moon, come further claims of a “base” visible on its surface. According to Dr. Michael Salla, there is a “military-industrial extra-terrestrial complex” on the moon’s surface. Furthermore, Salla, like other researchers, states that this alien race is working alongside human beings. Or at least a chosen few of them.

The official release of a picture that claimed to show an “industrial complex” operating on the moon went viral. As you might imagine, the image received a mixed response, to say the least. It is interesting perhaps that the Chinese have invested so heavily in the technology they have recently. And currently, have one of the most sophisticated telescope systems in the world. Is their sudden interest in landing on the moon something that should make us wonder what they might know?

Their probe touched down recently on the dark side of the Moon. There were plenty of eagle-eyed space enthusiasts back on Earth who were quick to analyze photographs from the Chinese authorities.

As you might imagine, there were quickly some interesting claims. The short video below is one of many available online looking at these recent pictures.

Wikileaks Revelations

In early-April 2019 in the wake of the arrest of Julian Assange in London, stories began to appear online courtesy of the Wikileaks website of an intentional destruction of a base on the moon [5] by NASA and the United States government.

What made this apparent leak interesting was that even media platforms that would generally stay clear of such leaks of information also carried the story. And while many in conspiracy circles have made similar claims for decades, suddenly such claims appeared to have an air of authenticity about them.

According to UFO researcher, Scott Waring:

…I found this information pertaining to a secret Lunar base that the United States destroyed in the late-1970s!

He would go on to explain that the cable had “only the details of the document”, which because it was handwritten was not put into digital format. Waring then goes on to claim that such a leak of information, if true, very well might explain why the Apollo moon missions suddenly stopped after Apollo 17.

Remember, it is worth remembering once again that several more Apollo missions were already authorized, planned, and budgeted for following the official last mission to the Moon in December 1972. Might there be more authenticity to the claims that the Apollo missions continued in secret than most of might think?

What Would Prompt Such A Mission?

And if so, why did they feel the need to actively destroy such a structure on the Moon? Why not, for example, explore them? Or might such search missions have taken place as part of the Apollo 18 and 19 missions? If this is true, what did they find to warrant the destruction of it? Was there a threat? Or was it simply to remove evidence of such an alien existence?

Or, as Waring theorizes, might the technology have been stripped and looted by the secretive missions and then destroyed in order to “keep it out of the reach of other countries”, many of whom are now beginning to explore our cosmic neighbor for themselves.

This, of course, would lead to even more questions. Were these apparent secret missions an American venture? Or, as many conspiracy researchers claim, were they part of a joint US-Soviet mission? And if that is true, what would that say about the reality of the Cold War? And what the powers behind the East and West were really doing behind closed doors?

Or, as other researchers suggest, was the base destroyed by the Soviet Union? And if so, was this against the wishes of the United States? Some researchers have even suggested that NASA was secretly operating out of this base at the time of the destruction.

Perhaps by design, these recent leaks of information regarding secretive activity on the surface of the Moon seemingly clouds the waters even further. Or, given the accuracy of leaks from the same source, should we take these leaks much more at face value? After all, declassified documents also show that members of the US government, if behind closed doors, were actively discussing and looking to initiate a base on the moon several years before the first landing.

“Specific Projects” For Moon Bases Actively Discussed Behind Closed Doors

A declassified and electronically available document from the CIA [6] from the early-1960s states clearly that “specific projects” were concentrated on “the construction of various structures under the surface of the moon”. These would include the storage of missiles under the Moon’s surface as well as the employment of “various versions of pneumatic structures”.

Close-up of the Moon's surface

Close-up of the Moon’s surface

Again, what should we make of the fact that high-ranking members of the US government, answerable to very few individuals, were actively discussing storing weapons – with significant fire power no doubt – on the surface of the Moon? What reasons would there be to do so? Was there an expected threat coming from outer space? Or were these missiles – if indeed they were ever transferred to the Moon – targeting destinations here on Earth?

We know there are a plethora of UFO sightings near the Moon’s surface. Many of which find their way on to social media and online platforms. There are also an equal amount of UFO sightings courtesy of the International Space Station.

In light of this leaked information of extraterrestrial bases on the moon now coming from a source seen as extremely credible in terms of other information they have released, should we perhaps start to ask with a more serious and demanding tone just what this persistent activity in and around our planet is? And just how does it relate to the decisions made here on Earth?

NASA Moon Mission “Not Acceptable” To The Extraterrestrials

We have written before also of the claims of Gary McKinnon of “Non-Terrestrial Officers”. And the suggestion of a secret “space force”. We have also written of the claims of Apollo 14 astronaut, Edgar Mitchell. Whose e-mail would claim “the war in (the) space race is heating up” as well as mentioning “our nonviolent ETI from the contiguous universe”.

These statements could perhaps be taken with a large pinch of salt. If it wasn’t for the fact that more and more high-ranking people are coming forward. And all are saying increasingly similar things.

For example, Colonel Ross Dedrickson’s duties would include knowing where every one of the nuclear weapons of the United States was. He would claim recently that in the late-1970s, the US government transported several nuclear weapons into space for testing. He would state clearly that these were “destroyed by the extraterrestrials”. Such nuclear tests, according to Dedrickson, were “not acceptable” to them.

It would appear, then, if we are to believe Dedrickson and Mitchell – and there is no reason that we shouldn’t – these apparent extraterrestrials are very calling the shots. However, they are not actively looking to do humanity harm. He even claims that a “spacecraft went to the rescue” when the Apollo 13 craft found itself in trouble. In fact, according to Dedrickson, the astronauts were preparing to evacuate the craft and board this alien spaceship. Ultimately, however, the mystery vessel managed to guide the Apollo 13 crew “safely back to Earth”.

The video below features Dedrickson speaking about this incident a little further.

Plans For Future Missions To The Moon?

Perhaps spurred on by the moves of the Chinese, many private companies are also looking to venture to the Moon. It would further appear that NASA once again has its site on landing astronauts on the lunar surface. And what’s more, they plan to leave them in attempts to establish a colony.

These plans are still several years away. It does, however, beg the question as to why there would be a sudden interest to return to the Moon. Nearly fifty years after suddenly deciding there was no longer a need to do so.

Might the move be one spurred out of wanting to protect what only they know is there? We know, for example, and coincidentally or not, almost immediately after the end of the Apollo Moon missions, the intelligence agencies began experimenting with remote viewing.

Much of this was for Cold War measures. At least one remote viewer, however, Ingo Swann, claims to have witnessed bases on the Moon. What’s more, the coordinates came to him from the intelligence agencies. This not only suggests that such “alien bases” are real and exist on or under the Moon’s surface. But that the shadow government is aware of such activity. Might this, at least in part, be the reason we have made no attempt to return to the Moon?

Incidentally, many Swann to be credible in his remote viewing skills. During one “trip” to Jupiter, he made several announcements about the planet. Ones that wouldn’t have confirmation until years later when space probes finally reached the gas giant.

Check out the documentary below. It looks at the Moon and just what it might be.

    Why have we never returned…because we never went there in the first place!

  • Richard DelCostello says:

    The world we live on is not the world we think we live on !!

  • Don Lodge says:

    I enjoy your articles. They are well written, except……
    Why is it that no ufo journalists (except Richard Dolan) use “phenomena” and “phenomenon” correctly. “Phenomenons” does not exist. Hope this helps, keep up the good work. Don

  • Ratul Nandi says:

    It may sound a bit weired but i think that if enquired humbly, these phenomnons can easily be explained by any of the indian “siddhas” like my extremely loving gurudev AVDOOT BABA SHIVANAND or SADGURU JAGGI BASUDEV & so on (they r the scientists of the science which is beyond our perception i.e ascience beyond our physical science, they r the cosmic players).

  • Waldo Devore says:

    When we moved Nuclear Testing from Nevada to Bikini Islands in South Pacific, the cover story was “testing”. You’d think the scientists knew better than to pollute the oceans with radio active fallout. But the real reason was that the US military discovered aliens on the ocean floor and they decided to use their newly invented A-Bomb testing cover story as the way to destroy the bases they found in the south pacific.

  • wiley says:

    I don’t think we are being watched by aliens nor do I care if we are. The moon does not have an ozone to deal with and less gravity, It is the perfect launch platform for deep space missions. It will take much less fuel to send a massive rocket from the moon depending on what resources can be found on the moon.

  • gamorgan says:

    are the Clangers on the moon & the soup dragon & froglets ?

  • D says:

    I just wanted to know why we haven’t been back to the moon… lol 🙂

  • Dodge Ball says:

    Could be aliens, but most likely our own bases. People think the moon is some spaceship or something, but planets like Jupiter and Saturn have moons that formed naturally. People believe in ghosts but I never see any. People also believe in god, but I never saw him. People also believe in a flat earth, but I’ve never seen one picture of it, and it makes no sense. The only thing we know is that we are on this planet and we should try to live a healthy life. Other than that, when I see aliens for myself i will believe it.

    • Ace Jam says:

      I’ve never seen a spherical earth either other than pictures supposedly taken by nasa showing a history of anomalies on the blue marble. But I do know we live in a world of historical liars and therefore refuse everything man has printed and rely on my own innate concepts through my mind’s reasoning, which so far has been pretty reliable and getting better because i feel we are born with these gene tools that keep humanity’s conscious excelling and learn to be in tune within this realm in which we live whether it’s a plane or plane(t). I do know you can spell level backwards and it’s still level.

      • Zack Simmons says:

        I think all of you “people” are really just elaborate figments of my imagination.

  • Omar A. says:

    Then we are pretty much screwed. If the government(s) want to keep us in the dark and unprepared so they don’t list their grip on their dominance over us, when and if they (aliens) decide to strike. We will all die because we where unprepared.

  • Sheila Mughal says:

    I have never believed in aliens existing in the nearby vicinity – mainly because I didn’t want to. The very thought scared the life out of me. Hey, I spent my childhood hiding behind the settee when Dr Who’s Darleks screamed “exterminate”. Films such as “War of the worlds” did not help matters.I even saw a black triangle in the sky once. but convinced myself it was an Aurora/ stealth like spy plane. Nope..me and aliens did not get along.

    However, as a science fiction writer (the paranormal was more my bag)… My next book (The Unbeknown – out Feb 26th 2017) involved historical alien invasions and their interference with the human genome. Every author has to do research, and so I was forced to watch documentaries and read lots of reports, about my least favorite subject – ET. I became fascinated. The more I read, the more I became convinced they exist and they are close by. I think the footage that swung me the most was the interview of the Apollo 11 astronauts after their mission. They looked shocked. I have a great instinct, and I just knew they had seen something.

    However here is my take on it – and I will return to my comfort zone of the paranormal. Anything not of this earth is an extra-terrestrial, & that includes God and of course angels, demons and maybe the fairies at the bottom of the garden. As a sci-fi writer, I have to open my mind to all possibilities, and the truth is – if not of this earth, it is alien. If I can stop being terrified, I may even find this all very interesting – but the odds are that if they were hostile they would have blown us all up a long time ago. Mythology, legends and history says they have been here a long long time- so lets hope that is a good sign.

  • Stephen Hawking says:

    yep i believe in aliens that they exist

  • Tim says:

    I am an alien!

  • mick mere says:

    I recently wrote something about aliens and my experiences and it was reloaded the page by itself am i being spyed on!!!

  • anonymous says:

    Amazing footage, I know there’s life out there!. I once had an experience/seen paranormal thing’s that where actually real…..
    my grandfathers trapline there was a long pipe object that was really light weight, it wasn’t heavy at all/ 28′ feet long maybe 4 or 5 inch diameter around hollow, should have been really heavy but was super weightless like unreal material.
    7 people who i know who are honesty and reliable in words and honesty %100 percent trustworthy said they seen little people running through the darkness at 1:00am at night, they where laughing and running into the bush/forest. HERES THE LOCATION OF SIGHTING OF THE SMALL PEOPLE 55°04’36.9″N 105°17’46.0″W 55.076918, -105.296109

    Here’s another location where they are seen mostly but rare sightings 54°58’07.0″N 104°49’25.9″W 54.968626, -104.823869 Ufo sightings are most common in that area of both lakes, experienced seeing a red glowing object, people where on that other lake division 18. wapawekka seen the same red glowing object, this time it was following there boat on the lake, scary experience of the intelligent being’s flying around!!…………

    Lot of history of sighting’s / experiences of other life.
    Around 2012 there was a ufo sighting witnessed by 28 people first hand HERES THE LOCATION 55°04’27.0″N 105°18’20.3″W
    One of the witnesses seen 12 foot tall alien seeders in the creek!…….. i live near that location it was an orange object hovering still for 10 minutes………..
    The aliens where searching for something to transplant to another planet to see if it can survive it could have been a frog catching or some kind of little organism they where searching for at night using flashlights!!……..

    All of this information i know makes me believe there are aliens out there.

  • zalachenko muay says:

    it’s interesting readn this article.am just mind boggled and open minded to the outer limits.i’ve always thought of other beings apart from us.

  • Bob says:

    I think that there are other forms of life out there. We are not the only beings in the whole universe. To say that would be egotistical. Who ever is out there knows of us and would not bother us because we can not get along with each other. so how would we get along with another race of beings. the people of earth are too ignorant.

  • esh thathu says:

    Loved it

  • Ski Jackson says:

    I believe in aliens because we live in a huge universe so there might be a planet out there that dogs keep humans (aliens to us) as pets !!! Who knows !!! I want to be a astronaut when I get older (I’m only ten years old ) so I will get a bunch of food and fly as far as I can !!!

  • Mike Tame says:

    I’m a bit concerned that someone thinks that all Americans came from England. That really is the thought of an alien. (probably from England!

  • Scott says:

    THEY NEVER WENT!! Lying people. Wake up people.

    • Hank Lowery says:

      Thanks Scott. I can’t believe how gullible people are. NASA still says it’s impossible to go to the moon because of the VA Belt radiation. Don Petitt is a phony lying ****.

  • Mariana says:

    I thik that there are a lot of arguments about the creation of the human been or the earth, the goverment should tell us the information they know, someday we’ll know that.
    This theme is so interesting.

  • beeker says:

    How about this theory: We are an alien colony. We have been interbred with apes tens of thousands of years ago (the interbreeding was probably necessary due to the elements in the atmosphere and so that we can have natural defence against earth viruses). The moon is a good place to have created the genetics lab and testing/observation site. This site, in this day and age is very likely abandoned to a degree but still serves some purpose. (mining ,observation, meeting point, ship repairs and maintenance)
    Many scientists(even Steven Hawking) insist that we must spread out into space in order for the survival of our species. Perhaps the aliens from another planets already thought of that. hmmm
    We have technology for 3D printers that work in 0 gravity. They could very easily have a massive 3D printer that they drag around in a huge space shuttle. They very likely have unfathomable tech that we haven’t even skimmed the surface of.
    I am not surprised NASA would not want to share this info because the religions of the world would take a huge hit financially(it’s always about money) and some fundamental beliefs would be questioned.
    Were we created In God’s image? How about in a grey alien’s image? Walking upright and mixed with the closest species which would make a hybrid species possible.
    There are so many questions…and we are not getting any answers because many people legitimately cant handle it.
    I can handle it. Heck I’ll be dead eventually and it will not matter to me in the end, but I would not be surprised.

  • Mr. Yinzer says:

    There are many resources on the moon. Nasa found mining equipment. gentleman, there is a substance called helium-3 in great abundance on the moon, while just a little bit of it on earth. this gas can be used to power nuclear fusion power plants. I have no doubt that this powers UFO’s or is their version of a new fuel. All they want, are these highly valuable resources. Other than that their is great amounts of uranium & titanium on the moon as well. do some research, that is why they are their. i have no doubt they spy on us and have been cheching in on us. but if they really wanted our resources on earth, they would just come down and take it.

  • Kslice says:

    Speculation beyond fact doesn’t make it fact.
    Why the **** would aliens travel the immense, inconceivable distances of space (especially from other galaxies)to sit hiding on the other side of the moon making 5 mile high towers for the past hundred of year. There are so many points to make about how idiotic this article and the supporting comments are, I guess there’s little point in arguing any of them with any of you but c’mon people use your brain and think about it.
    I don’t doubt there’s an abundance of life out there, but secretly watching us from the uninhabitable waste of the moon and space whilst our governments and more importantly our scientists avoid contact with them despite spending billions on trying to find them through some kind of fear of their really tall towers… this i highly doubt.

  • LALA says:

    OK, first of all ,there is no dark side of the moon as suggested in this article. That says that aliens exist on the “dark side of the moon”
    The moon rotates around the Earth in a 360 degree, which means all of its parts are at various point exposed to the sun and exposed to Earth. There is always a part that is “Hidden”. But there is no complete part that is just dark. This is absurd.

    • GoogleFU says:

      LALA sez:

      “The moon rotates around the Earth in a 360 degree, which means all of its parts are at various point exposed to the sun and exposed to Earth. There is always a part that is “Hidden”. But there is no complete part that is just dark. This is absurd.”

      Since the rotational period is exactly the same as the orbital period, the same portion of the Moon’s sphere is always facing the Earth.

      Don’t take my word for it. Google it

      Or just go outside with a camera every night for one month and see if you ever see a different side of the moon than is facing you on the first night.

  • Kaydie says:

    Honestly the governments of the world are hiding much more than just extra terrestrial life from us. I firmly believe that the Vatican is also hiding secrets from the masses. Honestly I believe whole heartedly that the Vatican and the governments of all the nations should be forced into telling us the truth. I mean when we go on trial we’re sworn to tell the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth so why doesn’t that same principal apply to the politicians and church officials?

  • nirinedoromba says:

    space and the ocean depths are the ultimate frontiers to challenge the intelligent scientists and visionary citizens but then we know more of outer space than our ocean depths.There is need to enkindle students and pupils interests with interesting books, videos, websites,occupational information,summer camps etc on astrophysics,astronomy,rocket propulsion basics,oceanography,marine survey ,meteorology and climatology, environmental education dynamics etc.Such space age kids can make it to mars and the stars easily with advanced propulsion systems even if we are banned from coming back to the moon by lunar beings there are other vast areas in space and oceans to explore if we have the right eco friendly and non destructive technologies

  • Liz Parker says:

    I am starting to believe in aliens a bit more now, but I don’t believe there are aliens on the moon, I don’t believe that there is any alien life that was or is on the moon but if we keep searching on every planet we know including the famous dwarf planet Pluto there could be some alien life there as we have never been there before. <3

  • Daropale Olamilekan says:

    According to Yoruba people of Africa Human are aliens on this planet called Earth I strongly believed the moon aliens are the sky gods governing the affairs of the sky

  • stephen burton says:

    I’m from newcastle england the best place 2 live on earth and iv saw plenty of crazy **** in the sky I didn’t belive in aliens untill I listen 2 wot people said and thought why would they talk so much **** 4 no reason then I thought it has 2 be something now I Belive like no dought about it there here

  • Elmore says:

    I thought this was going to be a great article and at the very beginning under the heading Politics it appeared that the writer had nailed it. Then from that point on the rest of it deteriorated into silliness. To be sure the odds of life on planets in distant solar systems are excellent given the shear number of stars similar to the sun. But the enormous distances between stars make space travel between them highly unlikely except possibly for the most advanced civilizations and those civilizations would hardly need anything form us. Politics was the driving force behind the moon landings and once we beat the USSR to the moon there was no more reason to pump money into it. I followed the space program from the early sixties until 1969, but after the moon landing I realized it was nothing more than a huge political stunt to show the world that we were better than the USSR and I lost interest and never followed the space program again.

  • Doug says:

    People seem to forget that Apollo 18 and 19 were built and paid-for when the decision was made not to go back to the moon. When was money ever a real hurdle to the government? Answer: only when government wants it to be cover for a real problem.

  • chandrashekhar joshi says:

    Whatever this pohoto means,i alwawy see to the sky and think that some day i will see some alien UFO but i never saw something like that but i strongly bleive that the day will come soon when all the myth about aliens will come true and because if we exists here on earth then ofcourse many aliens life will be there on other countless solor systems we have no alien tech. so that we can contact with them but may be they have i strongly believe that soon they will contact with us.

  • Francis says:

    This article is very shallow.

    No evidence at all.

    Pure fiction.

    • Someone says:

      i agree

    • J Ross says:

      So I take it you have a valid hypothesis of what these structures are photographed on the moons surface, one in particular that is estimated to be over five miles tall?

      Personally, I believe it is likely alien life-forms are inhabiting the moon. The most likely scenario is they’re mining it from the inside-out for precious metals.

  • mthandazo says:

    you knw its always suspecious ,why did Nasa never returned to the moon ….the only people to answer that is only nassa because they having all the tools and materials of observing the lunar surface and the temper with the evidence and the photos that are being taken by orbiters.Another reason is why did Neil Armstrong refuse to swear on the on the bible that he walked on Lunar surface.The truth will come out sooner or later but the planet will be doomed

  • john says:

    The truth is out there

  • Angel Fernando says:

    I wish that all of the alien things are true but WHY ON EARTH WHOULD ALIENS WANT IN OUR MOON? It’s like, you all know, empty and deserted! Anyone, there maybe other reasons that we did not find out yet. But still It does sound odd why NASA stopped traveling to the moon. The truth will come out some day. We will just have to wait,

    • FBG DUCK CLOUT BOY says:

      They want space,maybe there other alien inhabited planet is full of capacity.

  • B.D. says:

    Disclosing the truth would shatter the illusions of millions of conservative religious voters.

    this commentor chris it seems is very limited in his or her ability to reason.language is a man made concept which can be learned or changed overnight.especially accents.dna, physical aspects, appearence and structure are another matter completly.humans have no control over these things,and it would take many millions of years for humans to naturally evolve such differences.i could create a language, accents included overnight.it is done all the time by writers as easy as creating a klingon language for star trek,and even have a dictionary to explain the words.now take a human and let him evolve physically into a klingon naturally,good luck! i hope ive put this debate in terms that you can understand chris,and i truly believe its time for humans,as a species to take an objective look into whats around us constantly,and derive some type of protocal to deal with it.



  • r3 dfdv says:

    Yeah, that “ufo”…”landing” on the moon? That’s actually just an occultation of some star by the moon. That happens all the time, everywhere, from every possible reference frame that actually exists in the universe. This one is very simple to understand.

    The other things you wrote were just too misguided to even address, or the physics of the matter would be over the top for you, unfortunately.

    • ***** says:

      Are you serious? A star by the moon. wow.

      • candytripn says:

        “By the moon” as in perspective. If a star is in the same line of sight as the moon. Occulation is when one object is hidden by another object that passes between it and the observer. Knowing the definition of the word would really help you with context.

  • Todd says:

    I hope the aliens will come here in peace. I would love to have an alien as a best friend. I would go everywhere with him and anthon smith you have a very good point and i believe that to.

    • rose says:

      Awwww me tooo let’s be best friends until they come

  • Bobby says:

    I just thought you should know, there is no such thing as the dark side of the moon. The moon is locked onto earths rotation, causing the moon to rotate once per orbit only showing earthlings one side. That does not mean that the other side of the moon doesn’t get light. And it’s not like we have never seen the other side of the moon, NASA has plenty of photos on their site, go take a look at them, you payed for them with your tax money.

    • Don't Worry About It says:

      The moon orbits the Earth once every 27.322 days. It also takes approximately 27 days for the moon to rotate once on its axis. As a result, the moon does not seem to be spinning but appears to observers from Earth to be keeping almost perfectly still. Scientists call this sychronous rotation.

      The side of the moon that perpetually faces Earth is known as the near side. The opposite or “back” side is the far side. Sometimes the far side is called the dark side of the moon, but this is inaccurate. When the moon is between the Earth and the sun, during the new moon phase, the back side of the moon is bathed in daylight.

  • Glen says:

    I agree with Anton. We are all supposed to have come from Africa during the early stages of homo sapiens (apparently as we are led to believe) but we have different skin tones, different languages, different facial structures. If we really did originate from Africa then why aren’t we one colour with one language?

      You’re an ***…All Americans came from England yet we have a totally different accent…and that only took a couple hundred years…things and people change with their environment over time…I have friends who moved to just a different state in the US and start to sound different after only a few months…stupid argument…

      • Jacko says:

        Yes, Americans are modern day Israelites. Israel today is only the tribe of Judah. America is the only country that has ALL 12 tribes in it and is the most blessed nation to have EVER existed as far as resources and power goes. Great Britain (if you trace the genealogy) are descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Manasseh) and his younger brother that would break off and out of his older brother in the latter days and become a “great multitude of people’s is Ephraim=USA-Israel’s lead tribe). There’s a reason the Brexit happened and that’s because The UK is an Israeli nation, not a gentile nation like modern Assyria=Germany

      If you had ever concentrated on geography you would see that farther you are from the Equator the lighter your skin tone is and the nearer you are to Equator the darker. It’s the evolution. Face it!

        I can’t believe how most of you live in denial!!! I saw 3 discs over Esso refinery Southampton and at least ten people watching and what comes along but two RAF jets like slow motion compared to when they got to close and the UFOs decided to speed off at incredible speed. I now know that the government chase them so that you can’t see them. There here and I now believe.

      Glen the same way there are different breeds of dogs, fish, birds, cats, etc…. Are they “aliens” too?…do they come from different planets because they “appear” contrasting.

    This must be where the crazies and mentally deficients hang out…

  • TheTruth says:

    Aliens are fallen angels dummies

    • like really????? says:

      how can u honestly believe that.. angels do not exist…

      • Jacko says:

        How can YOU honestly believe angels and God don’t exist? “THAT” is foolish sir! Aliens are nothing more than cursed interdimentional beings/pre-Adamite race that were cursed by God and wiped out before mankind took residence on earth due to their rebellion and wickedness. Otherwise known as: “Demons.” And yes, if you don’t believe in demons you are truly blind as they possess people, are territorial, can fake someone’s identity and can be interdimentional since their very definition is “disembodied spirit.” Man is not and has never been given immortality “yet.” Man is mortal and when you die you are dead until God raises you (Christ was the FIRSTBORN of a NEW CREATION). That’s why supposed hauntings are only demons “masquerading as deceased loved ones.” The devil/Lucifer/Satan heads the fallen angels and the legions of demons and their priority is to deceive mankind by transforming themselves into “angels of light” as the Bible said long ago.. to deceive even the very elect if that were possible! When you know the truth it’s easy to see what it is. I used to be terrorized by supposed aliens, but then Jesus showed up in my life and I haven’t been tormented since. Christ has authority over ALL principalities and powers… on the earth, under the earth and in the heavenlies as Yahweh God HIMSELF gave him this authority!

  • Anton Smith says:

    I believe we are aliens on this planet called Earth we Arrived A very long time ago Explain why we have Different language’s and we dont look the same and forget what people want to believe we are the Aliens of this planet …..

    • Omar A. says:

      That’s the lost human tribe theory…. Battle star Galactica

  • John Hankel says:

    Well you have a very loose definition of the word evidence. There are very few facts contained within this article. Even if some of this was true, you didn’t offer any credible facts and or refrences that would support your idea. Is this a religious website? Because I think you just want me to take all of this on faith.

    • Kamron Hiltunen says:

      Well in reality there is no “dark side of the moon” lol the moon rotates on its on axis. So that theory is debunked. Yes there are aliens, no there not on the moon. They probably have been I won’t doubt it. But now? Wtf would they even want to do on the moon. We’re all to ******* retarted for them to care about us at all. Aliens are out there you’d have to mentally ill to think other wise. But you have to be equally mentally ill to belive they have a base on the none existent dark side of the moon so they could monitor humans, what could they possibly want to monitor? Whose gonna be president trump or Hilliary? We can’t even get to Mars guys come on. Let alone inhabit the moon and live on it. So calm down lol. There isn’t a **** base on the moon you goons.

      • kevin says:

        There is a dark side to the moon.. if you simply Googled before commentoing, you would have read that the moons rotation on its axis is such that we only see one face of the moon.. the dark side is never viewable from Earth.

      • Voltara says:

        The moon doesn’t rotate on its axis. The same side of the moon faces the Earth at all times. It’s called the “dark side of the moon” because it can’t be seen from Earth

      • wayne says:

        LOL, it actually does rotate on its axis, it takes less than 30 days to rotate once.. But since rotation and orbital period are the same, we always see one side of the moon.. So yes, there is a dark side

      • J Ross says:

        They are mining it for precious metals.

    • Richard DelCostello says:

      This is simply a rundown of most known events – where there is extensive evidence for them. The article wasn’t supposed to be proof of every theory with every fact. The facts are out there when you decide to look at one of the things talked about in the article.
      If this was an article to include all evidence, footage, testimony etc… We’d be reading this article for years.
      Good recap for those just starting to realize the truth.

    This is a message not only to you Mr. Ian Stephens but to all who reads this. It has taken you people this long unbelievably to realize that you’re not alone. How much that has been done and how much has been show you over the years and due to the stout, stubbornness, and unbelief of heart you did not believe.

    Rather than taking a keen eye to search this out in the early stages when other life forms not from this planet, but visiting this planet on an ongoing basis and studying our planet going all over the world seeing your cities and people walking the streets in the cloak of invisibility, observing your way of life and testing the speed of some of your most sophisticated and fastest air crafts and leaving you in the dust as a form of mockery showing you that they have the capabilities of flying at speeds beyond your recognition.

    Seeing aero maneuvers that you couldn’t possibly define yet let alone do. Searching your ocean of all life forms and your land of all life forms. You yet could not come to terms there were other life forms beside yourself, living beyond your world and yet exploring your world. So many tried to tell you, but you would not believe because you didn’t want to admit to the very people of whom you’re surrounded by that there were other life forms far more advance than you and far more superior in technology than the technology you have, and with that pose a far more threat to your way of life.

    For how could you battle that which you could not catch nor yet understand. How could you battle that which could disappear before your eyes and become invisible to the naked eye and become visible again. Time and time again you have been shown this and yet you could not believe because of the stoutness of your heart of that you never seen.

    But your military knew they couldn’t out fly what they saw nor maneuver the way you’ve seen other life forms maneuver. They left you boggle in mind and shaken in density of impossibility that no human could endure such erratic maneuvers, for it would surely kill him. But you seen this and yet did not believe but could not deny.

    The military had no other choice but to acknowledge and admit in the cloaks of secrecy that there were indeed other life forms that were far superior and advance in technology as oppose to theirs. What were they to do? Can we surely tell the people that we encounter a species that is far advance than we. That our defenses cannot match up to theirs, that were defenseless against them: Match for match, What would that cause? Epidemic?! Fear?! Riot?! What chance do we have if they turned on us? How could we protect this great nation of ours if that happened. How would we defend the people of earth and our planet if such a thing occurred.

    Thoughts without question that have passed through the military’s mind of the one’s who lead and the heads of the military. These and other hard questions raised in their minds and as the old saying goes if you can’t beat em join em and that is exactly what our military did. They refuse to alert the public because of fear of knowing they could not match these life forms call E.T.’s on a defense level.

    As much as they the military didn’t want to admit they knew they were inferior in technology in comparison to these life forms and so they our military made a compact treaty with these life forms called aliens a treaty to allow abduction of human life form and animal life in exchange for their advance technology. I have much to elaborate on but time does not permit me.

    I just give you a few clues as to what has been happening and it gets deep much deeper than what’s been told and is true in every sense of the word and gets more grim by the minute. I would not take this lightly if I were you for there are far more sinister things happening that you have no idea about that’s going on right now and has been for some time.

    Nevertheless my time has expired and I must go but I leave you with food for thought. Something that if you want the truth and no lie then you will find it if you want it. I just say don’t turn a non ear when you find out how dark and grim this really is for it gets very ugly and I do mean UGLY!!! For now I wish all you readers well and specially you Ian Stephens. God Bless To All.
