Mysterious Moon Object

UPDATE: Debunked to my satisfaction at MetaBunk. There are lots of similar dots on the moon if you do the same zooming. And I reckon the originator of this meme knew that as well!

it seems these sharpening filters have created some noise along the boundaries between light and dark regions, and that is what has created these dots.

Object-on-the-Moon Because this is a NASA photograph (discovered via Google Moon), these are the possible explanations:

  • Weird effect created by digital photography (see Wikipedia)
  • Inserted by someone at NASA or Google for their own amusement
  • A relic from a known human mission (list at Wikipedia)
  • Part of a secret human mission
  • Aliens are real

One commenter says:

This sharper bit of imagery is only visible if you have the “Featured Satellite Images” layer checked. If you scan around and zoom in on many high contrast transitional areas like crater rims, you will see many anomalies. They show as light pixels against the dark shadows of the craters. Like the other light pixels this “object” is an anomaly caused by the imagery process and wishful thinking.

Add it to this NASA image of a building on asteroid 433 Eros (that NASA chose to visit), and you start wondering…


As weird as the moon object is, this iguana found in a NASA Mars photo is harder to understand:



Scientology’s Top Secret Trementina Base

This all comes from an article at the Daily Mail this week, where you can see many more photos. Seems that not only do the Scientologists have an underground vault behind a substantial building in remote New Mexico, but they also have a massive geoglyph that will guide people to it post-apocalypse / alien invasion – and a landing strip.

While no one knows the definite meaning of the pair of overlapping circles, each with a diamond in them, it is believed to have been trademarked by the Church of Technology, a branch of Scientology.

The aerial pictures taken from a helicopter show the house-like structure that covers the entrance to the vault.

Green and beige, the house is built against a flat, stone buttress that blends into the mountain itself.

Down a paved path is a mile-long landing strip, water storage units as well as several RV trailers. The entire complex of buildings and temporary structures sits atop 50-60 acres nestled in the heart of the New Mexico desert 20 miles west of the nearest town of Las Vegas.

During a recent flyover, the compound appeared uninhabited, except for a solitary dog walking the grounds. 

Tim Gallagos, ex-police chief of the Las Vegas, New Mexico, Sheriff’s Department, was given a tour of the vault by church officials in the late 1990s.

He is believed to be the only non-Scientologist to have ever visited the site.

He told MailOnline that within the stone walls are several machines for copying the works of Hubbard.

He explained: ‘They were transferring writings, speeches and videos. This vault is like a giant time capsule and they told me all the scriptures are being kept there.’

In his book The Church of Fear – Inside the Weird World of Scientology, he reports how he was told the vault ‘houses the lectures of church founder L Ron Hubbard on gold discs locked in titanium caskets sealed with argon. The cathedral is H-bomb proof, protected by three 5,000lb stainless steel airlocks.’

He adds: ‘Experts say the weird signs on top of the mountain will guide Clears, [high-ranking Scientologists] returning from space to find Hubbard’s works after a nuclear Armageddon wipes out humanity.’
