The NASA Apollo 12 mission was the second to land men on the Moon. Launched in November 1969, Apollo 12 made headlines around the world only months after Neil Armstrong became the first man on the Moon. Now, almost 60 years after the historic space flight, UFO hunter Scott Waring believes he has spotted an alien UFO looming in the background of a re-examined photo from the NASA Apollo 12 archive. Waring took to his etdatabase.com blog to speculate about the strange lunar anomaly.
He said: “It is kind of mind-blowing that these objects are still in NASA’s Apollo 12 index.
“Fortunately for us these anomalies have not been edited out by NASA.
“That does not look like a figment of my imagination or a glitch in the camera.
“The rest of the photo looks fine and it does not look like it is a shadow underneath a black rock.”
The anomaly on the horizon is so small in the photograph, it has to be significantly enlarged with digital manipulation.
The self-proclaimed UFO expert continues by speculating about the anomaly’s provenance.
Waring said: “It does look like a piece of alien technology – the shape of it suggests it is something that was created.
“But it is does not resemble anything built with human technology, it instead looks like some sort of sophisticated bio-technology.
“Bio-technology has been designed to grow itself so aliens never need to waste their time with building it.
“It resembles the disk (fellow UFO conspiracy theorist) Bob Lazar said he worked on, which he thought was 3D printed or grown.
“Lazar said the technology works even if you take it apart, the pieces can still connect and communicate with each other.”
However, the video ends with Waring admitting there could be a far more prosaic explanation for the stage speck, saying: “Could it be something stuck to the lens the camera? That would explain it, I guess.”
The image was obtained from NASA’s Apollo Image Atlas, and documents how the image under scrutiny was shot with a 70mm Hasselblad medium format camera.
And the photograph was shot in Milichius crater, found in the northern part of the Moon’s Mare Insularum.
The video quickly garnered scores of comments on YouTube, with many comparing supposed UFO sighting with the widely-discredited Black Knight satellite theory.
Terrys Theories wrote: “That is really cool Scott. Great find. The astronauts supposedly said that they where being watched, looks like you found proof. Could be the Black Knight or some other type of craft.”
And Corey Frady added: “Reminds me of the black knight satellite? Looks different at different angles. Its rumoured to an alien craft that shifts around.”
However, not everyone is as convinced by Waring’s outlandish claims, with Expattaffy1 writing: “Sheesh, another brain-washed idiot.”
