3-Mile-Tall “Artificial Spire” Structure Was Found On Moon’s Surface
Little is known about the three-and-a-half-mile-high “moon spire” obtained in high-resolution photos of the Moon’s surface (see photo above). Optical illusion, gas plume, natural geologic formation — and a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ construction are all possibilities.
The mysterious structure identified by a Mexican researcher is not the first odd high-rising object observed on the Moon’s surface.
The Moon Spire, which is estimated to be 3.6 miles tall, was spotted by Mexicogeek on YouTube while searching through Google Moon imagery.
The item appears to be an artificial antenna, with a slim, smooth, uniform base and a huge circular object on top. It’s relatively straightforward to rule out natural geological creation (it defies all current geological theories), and the height and width of the tower-like structure seem to rule out a massive gas plume from an outgassing event.
Except that additional similar structures have been located on the Moon’s surface and photographed in profile, an optical illusion is a viable option (i.e. from the side).
The structure below is referred to as “the Shard.” It was photographed by the Lunar Orbiter LO-III in 1967 and stands close to the Bruce crater.
The uneven, spindly-shaped object is estimated to be more than a mile tall when viewed in profile. The picture analysis indicates that the object is made of a highly reflective material, nearly like glass.
Ice crystals were proposed but rejected because each crystal would be the size of a city block. Scientists have thus far been unable to explain the object. Although the Shard’s jagged surface may lead some to believe it is a natural creation, a frame from an Apollo 10 movie (Frame As10-32-4822) captured something much more mysterious.
This object, known today as The Castle (or Hoagland’s Castle), resembles a massive, multi-columned artificial edifice – except it is nearly 9 miles tall!
Theories about the Moon Spire structure’s likely purpose differ. Some believe it’s really an A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ relic from a previous culture that colonized the moon thousands or millions of years ago (perhaps before colonization Earth?). Others say it is a docking station, a communication antenna (a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ or manmade), or an advanced surveillance gadget. Whatever it is, it is one of several mysterious high-rise abnormalities discovered on the surface of our nearest neighbor.
