The Enigmas on the Moon
Anomalies in Copernicus Crater 
Catalog By Grid Map Reference
"Shuttle Rock"
GRID I-4 to I-5
This rock formation has an uncanny resemblance to the Space Shuttle. Looking at it from above in C #5 {below} it soon becomes clear it is only shadows. However once again this makes a good orientation landmark.
"Shuttle Rock"
GRID 5I-9a


"Crane 1"

This crane/steam shovel is taken from Image #1 in Area "F". It has the appearance of emitting steam or smoke from the back. There is what appears to be a cable slung in front {left}

"Crane 3(5)"
GRID 5I-6a

This crane/steam shovel is taken from Image #5 . It is the same crane as the one in J-3a on image #2.

"Manhattan Square"
GRID 5I-7a

If you look at the general area that the crane above is located in you will see several oddities that do not appear natural. The best one is here. If you zoom in on the original image #5 rotated right 90 degrees you will get an uncanny feel of looking down on a city block.

"Manhattan Square"
GRID 5I-7a

In the center of this picture there is a group of rectangular 3-d objects not yet identified. To the left of it you can see two groups of three spheres and some thin lines. On the top right, more spheres and another oval tank. This area on C #2 is washed out and blurry.


We have highlighted the important areas but you have to zoom in on the original to get the scope and scale of this anomaly

"Crane and Pipes"
GRID 5I-6b

The area to the left of the crane is full of odd tubular shapes. It is difficult to determine what they represent but the big tube to the left has ribs on it. On the left are some interesting "structures" one is square.

"Enigma W"
GRID 5I-6c

The inside of this area has many unusual shapes but what they might be cannot be determined at this time. The look is interesting enough to include for further study.

"Corporate Center"
GRID 5I-7b

Very symmetrical formations. These are either structures or very unusual rock formations. The overall impression is of an office complex

"The Pipe Line Bridge"
GRID 5I-8a

Here we see a pipe line crossing a crater. Halfway it goes into the sunlight but you can still trace it until it is shadowed near the top. 

"The Monolith"

This  "tower" stands out in both C #1 and C #5. Looking at the brightness and the billowy structure, this is most likely a column of smoke or gases. In either case it would be a couple hundred feet tall. I have seen this column in other low res photos of Copernicus. When I relocate them I will add them to this section

"The Monolith"
GRID 5I-9 to 5I-10

This is the same area in C#5. The fact that the "tower" has changed form is significant and makes a good case for a plume of venting gases.

GRID 5I-9b

This little critter is most likely a "puff" of vapor or trick of shadow, but we just had to include it.

"Tracks in Area H"
GRID 5I-12

This one if you look back from a distance you will see a white "roadway" that traverses from the lower left at 45 degrees to the upper right, going through the pass by the strange "spire with even stranger shadow. 

The red highlighted enigma's will have their own detail section. The yellow highlights the possible "paths" or "roadways"
