The 3-miles high “moon spire” revealed in high-resolution images of the Moon’s surface is a mystery (see photo above). Optical illusion, gas plume, natural geologic development — and extraterrestrial construction are all possibilities.
The mysterious structure, identified by a Mexican researcher, isn’t the first peculiar high-rising structure seen on the Moon’s surface.
Mexicogeek of YouTube spotted the Moon Spire, which is believed to be 3.6 miles tall while looking through Google Moon photos.
The item resembles an artificial antenna in appearance, with a thin, smooth, uniform base and a huge circular object on top. The height and breadth of the tower-like structure appear to rule out a massive gas plume from an outgassing event, and the height and width of the tower-like structure seem to rule out a natural geological formation (it defies all current geological theories).
Except that additional comparable 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 Shard” is the name given to the building below. It lies near the Bruce crater and was photographed by the Lunar Orbiter LO-III in 1967.
The uneven, spindly-shaped object is believed to be more than a mile tall when viewed in profile. The device appears to be made of a highly reflective material, almost like glass, according to the photo.
When it was discovered that each crystal would be the size of a city block, ice crystals were considered but dismissed. Scientists have been unable to describe the item to this point.
Although the jagged surface of the Shard may lead some to assume it is a natural creation, a frame from an Apollo 10 movie (Frame As10-32-4822) showed something more stranger.
This object, now known as The Castle (or Hoagland’s Castle), resembles a massive, multi-columned manmade edifice — except its nearly 9 miles tall!
The purpose of the Moon Spire construction has been the subject of several theories. Some people think it’s really an old extraterrestrial relic from a culture that inhabited the moon thousands or millions of years ago (perhaps before colonization Earth?).
Others speculate that it may be a docking station, an extraterrestrial or human-made communication antenna, or a sophisticated monitoring gadget. Whatever it is, it joins the ranks of other inexplicable high-rise abnormalities that have been discovered on the surface of our nearest neighbor.
An astronaut on one of the Apollo lunar flights captured this weird item below. It appears to be manufactured.
It appears to be cylindrical in shape, but we don’t have any way of knowing how big it is. It might be as tiny as a can of soda, as large as a barrel, or as massive as a farm silo. What exactly is it, and who placed it there?
The three-mile-high “manufactured spire” is not an isolated example, as we can see. There are several strange photographs from the moon. There is only one question: why isn’t anyone explaining where these buildings and items came from?
