|Take a look
at the photos below first if you prefer but the text analyzes and explains
what I think is in them. All off-site links as well as the images open
in a new window so you can do comparisons.
This next clip is of a relatively high-res Apollo 15 photo from 119km above the Moon's surface. While waiting for the LM to return, the Command Service Module Pilot Al Worden, was doing experiments and taking more photos. (70mm Hasselblad, Mapping Metric and Panoramic) He also used hand-held 35mm SLR cameras from inside the CSM.
It looks like there are two structures similar to operations where I've worked at one time.
Other areas in the image could be related. There are two versions of this photo.
Here's the actual two versions at original resolutions from their respective sites:
NORTHEAST OF TSIOLKOVSKIY
is a very low-res version. All the photos in this magazine were scanned
at lo-res. and there isn't any real detail in any of them.
They seem to have straight-line 3D symmetrical shape in a configuration I'm familiar with. Shadows and shading are consistent with the images light direction. The outer edges of these "structures" conform to the surface terrain around them. The left structure's north end looks like there's industrial pipelines going into the ground.
The resemblance of NASA and other industries designs is very close. (comparison below) I was employed in the early 70's at an underground mining operation in NT, Australia that had a similar type of surface-to-subterranean layout. We used underground to surface conveying systems, protected within the pipelines.
Other shafts and pipelines contained
access and personnel corridors, equipment transport and side-connected
tubes for workshops, engineering offices and break-rooms. Self contained,
climate controlled and some large enough to drive through.
Much like these underground and
in-mountain inserts and connectors, being constructed at
See the huge crane under the camouflage netting?
After verifying all the components
fit properly, it's disconnected in smaller sections for transport. Then
depending on the underground configuration, "T" and /or "Y" connectors
(I have place marks at these in Google Earth titled: Large Tube & Larger Tube)
Many people have asked us how can they hide things, especially since Google Earth can see everywhere. Discounting the fact that Google Earth can easily be edited ( I am sure there are sensitive areas in the world the government will not let them look at) here Jack has found clear visual proof of just how easy it is to hide things from space cameras. Below you will see camouflage netting that has been only partially deployed and you can see a huge machime, bigger than buildings on the site, partially hidden. Notice the texture of the tent... if it was complete, it would look like a piece of natural terrain. It is noteworthy at this point to mention that Guy Cramer, one of the three people who own most of the mineral rights on the moon owns HyperStealth Biotechnology Corp a company that specializes in camouflaging large structures. One of their contracts is the H.A.R.R.P facility in Alaska.
So if we are assuming that they
are hiding things from us on the Moon and Mars, you can see how much more
difficult it is finding anomalies, never mind any editting or touch up
on photos afterwards.
My Theory On What They May Be
Underground Mining and Processing Sites. Along with habitat and laboratory modules. And possibly support sites in the near areas.
Before you call the nearest institution on me, consider this... The caption in the version from the Apollo site reads: "Lunar Orbit View: Lobate Landslip Outside Northeastern Rim Of Tsiolkovsky" The landslide debris is the "chunky" area at bottom left in the photo. What better mining conditions when you have a massive section of wall several miles wide and hundreds of feet high already collapsed?
On one of the largest ejecta blankets on the planet....(more on that below) And Tsiolkovsky is considered one of the more recent impact craters, in geological time.
The first site is just above
the bulk of the rubble. The second site looks to be 3 to 5 miles to the
east in this images orientation. Because of the Command Orbiter's flight
path, east is actually NNW in the Hi-Res photo. The scaled image width
of the photo is approximately 15 miles.
So what's being mined?
Any number of minerals and elements. Titanium, Helium3, Regolith, Gold and possibly elements or minerals that don't exist on Earth.
Scientists and astronomers have already confirmed that craters are disappearing from the surface. Past large impacts splattered sub-surface material and what's left of the meteor, asteroid or comet in what's called ejecta all around the newly formed crater. Astronauts brought back crater ejecta full of oxygen. It makes sense that this can be mined and stored in underground silos or containment vessels for later use.
The term ISRU is something you need to get famliar with... it means In Situ Resource Utilization... in otherwords what IS on the Moon , STAYS on the Moon..
The NASA Moon Photos
My Story of dealing with NASA in the 1970's
by Vito Saccheri
"In 1980, another puzzle piece fell into place. A friend had shown me a special congressional subcommittee report on moon rocks brought back by the astronauts and a feasibility study on colonizing the moon. The document was dated 1972 or `73 and concluded that moon colonization using giant plastic air bubbles was unrealistic and that we would need to transport air from the earth. The congressional report concluded that there was plenty of oxygen on the moon trapped in the rocks. The recommended solution: pulverize the rocks on a large scale with major excavations. The liberated oxygen would be stored in underground caverns and tunnel systems and the debris from these pulverized rocks dumped into the existing craters. Naturally, the craters would eventually disappear, an observation made by astronomers long before the first moon landings and, ironically, one that had initially prompted Leonard and other scientists of the 1950s to analyze early moon photos".
More information if you can find it:
"Somebody Else Is on the Moon"
written by a former NASA scientist, George H. Leonard. Leonard had been working in the photo intelligence division of NASA. My note: Why would NASA have the need for a photo intelligence division? I can think of only one reason....they have photos they don't want us to see. I have seen this book (paperback version) and it doesn't show anything in the grainy photos that he sees but the info in it is interesting.
However, not one person in the scientific community or NASA circles has explained to me in any uncertain terms as to what these shapes are! So I'm allowed. One more point. Now the question is...
Who is doing the mining?
Well...if astronomers have been watching craters disappear long before we sent our first Moon landing....?
And then there's these... Operations
in progress today...
The following is the text for these two photos:
#1: "Gloria "(shaft name) combined a vertical shaft for personnel and materials hoisting with a long incline shaft for vehicle access and conveyor hoisting of the ore to a surface crushing, screening and washing plant".
"The new expansion follows this design, having a 2,200m-long incline shaft and the 500m-deep No.3 personnel shaft. There is also a new ventilation shaft, and a workshop located on the 400 level".
#2:For the new area, Assmang requested a three-boom rig fitted with two rock drills for face work plus one for roof-bolting, so the mine can drill holes for roof bolts and face-blast holes from the same set-up. Atlas Copco has supplied four purpose-designed Rocket Boomer M3D rigs.
In Copernicus Crater (See
The Living Moon pages) we found evidence of just such a tube structure...
The resolution on the copy of LO-III-162 that we have from an original
unretouched 16x20 negative is extremely high res, but because of the scale
objects are still difficult to find....
The reflectivity of the shapes are consistent with other areas in the image and not overly over-exposed. It can be determined the shapes are in the photo and not on the glass or negative by analyzing the focal point. If on the glass or negative, after being re-photographed and later scanned, the shapes would be over exposed into a "blooming" effect, giving the edges and the bulk of the shapes a bright Gaussian type blur. Much brighter than the images brightest feature. The focal point being the surface terrain, shows these objects consistency of pixilation with the area around them when enlarged.
Debris on the glass or negative would pixilate at different levels. And if debris, it would be closer to the scanning light than the subject being scanned, making them blurrier and brighter. And here's something everyone should know. Like most new technologies, scanners were available to the military long before they became available to the public. Although most were re-photographed in smaller sections from the large mosaics into 16x20 prints.
The AS15-94-12741 photo is not from a mosaic, it was taken with the 70mm Hasselblad. You'll see what looks like hair or fibers in the scanned Hi Res photo. On closer inspection, they are actually rilles and channels created by smaller impacts in the area. I first thought the shapes were common errors created from debris on the scanner glass or an anomaly in the negative until I enlarged it and took a closer look at the two shapes that are visible without enlargement. Some of the smaller specks, smudges and dark lines scattered around this image, are probably from the scanner glass, on the camera window or negative itself.
Why I Think The Shapes Are Not Scanning Or Other Errors
On the Lunar and Planetary Institute(LPI) site, there are dozens of mosaics (of the Lunar Orbiter images) that have developing and scanning errors. Some are caused by developing solutions drying on the negatives. Some are oily fingerprints transferred to the negatives. Others have sticky-tape residue on them.
I'm sure cosmic radiation had a hand in creating film anomalies.
Some look like an airman spilled beer on them. (Karl Wolfe)?
Others show tape or clips that were used to hold the
print strips in place when creating mosaics.
And numerous other causes.
But most of them are dried condensation on the negatives and prints from poor
storage practices before and after the mosaics were created.
When scanned in visible light scanners, these errors get
overexposed and create the blurry patterns.
But it's hard to tell which came first, photos that were scanned then re-photographed...
or re-photographed prints that were scanned and then digitally re-photographed.
It really doesn't matter, the
fact that they have these errors is the point.
And I've seen some web sites that claim these patterns are bases. They are not.
It's too bad some people manipulate photos to "enhance" the area.
And when it doesn't look quite real enough, all boundaries are crossed
in the name of sensationalism and authenticity. And no matter
how many sets of letters are behind someone's name, detail can't be created
by making it bigger than it was meant to be viewed.
If the original photo doesn't show any detail at just 100%, there isn't any!
The more you enlarge any photo,
the less detail you have and more pixilation at the same time, resulting
in shapes seemingly taking on transmutations but usually with some help. The same goes for
hi-res scans of lo-res photo
Even in this hi-res scanned photo I found. In fact, I've removed all the enlargements
I've made on other pages because they really don't bring out any detail, just larger pixels.
(with the exception of the Wisps and the circular object which are only 2x enlargement)
But this AS15 photo does show detail at just 100%
so enlarging it doesn't alter its shape or form.
And everyone should know, I'm not claiming anything in these pages, and haven't.
Just sharing my observations, theories and experiences as well as knowledge on photography and optics.
There is only two ways to confirm what's real or not...
The authority that created it comes forward with all the data or
we go there ourselves.........I'll
In another section below, I've include a few to show you what these common and uncommon errors look like.
You'll see that the errors extend into space, well away from the surface and some, off the edge of the negative itself.
(These web sites don't show you that part)
You'll agree they all are completely different from the two shapes in this photo.
I have looked at every photo (thousands) on these two sites over the years
and there isn't one other photo with the same shapes as in AS15-94-12741HR.
If anyone has, I would like to
know the photo # please.
One more note: I was so intrigued with this photo I emailed the authority
that scans the negatives in a very high resolution .tif format for the public. (57Mb).
When it's ready, assuming they have the requested negative, they send you an email with a web site to download it from.
(In my case it took only one day before I was notified)
I was really excited while I waited for it to download. Then reality. It looks like a blown up copy of the lo-res version.
Nothing in it. Not even the smaller impact signs. And it was so dark that when I lightened it up,
it barely looks like the same photo.
So I won't post it here, it's not worth taking up my space.
Just blow up the lo-res version to 57Mbs and you'll have the same thing.
Or you can request it yourself from the above link.
(Here's a tip: They want to know what you're going to do with the images....I'm sure for copyright concerns.
"Research on... or for...." is the correct answer...you fill in the rest)
Knowing optics and techniques of developing, scanning and photo analysis, the scanned negative
image made for me looks
to be altered. Or at the very least, scanned at lo-res then enlarged.

it has a "cut-out" above it's center. Notice the top end of it is a little wider than the rest of it.
At our processing site we also had a 50ft deep, Exactly like the two TBM's below.
100ft wide trench, 200ft long where waste material was And to me it looks like there's a jointed boom attached to it.
dumped then loaders filled trucks to haul away and bury.
I'm not suggesting the material is being trucked-out.
But if this kind of technology was in place back then,
there would be technology for a kind of lunar transporter too.
Whether it be on wheels or having flight capabilities or possibly both.
Or how about a deeper trench, reinforced on the inside to prevent collapse?
That "slot", is darker than the surrounding area.
If the waste material is being relocated somehow, we should all be checking
old and new photos of the surrounding areas of
Tsiolkovsky for smaller insignificant
craters, to see if any have filled up.
A design from the early 70's.
This type is expandable to any configuration.
The similarity of the components to the east site is astounding.
And the scale of the TBM-looking cylinder is correct.

Well, well, look who
owns this one 60's model
Although it's been suspected nuclear powered TBM's
would do the job by melting the material and fusing it
to the inner walls as it passes, eliminating the
need for underground tube inserts. I haven't found
any photos of one though. But I'm willing to bet
fission powered TBM's do exist.
TBM's are remarkable machines so here's a few more variations.

It seems logical there would be support sites.
We had them at the remote location in Australia for exploratory teams,
logistics support sites, security, transportation and local resident personnel.
So I looked even closer. I can't believe what I'm seeing.
Although these other areas are very small, some have a little detail.
I made this context image for easy location outside Tsiolkovsky.
It took some time having only the above photo for reference.
Like the shapes, the landslide rubble has a unique pattern also.
That's what I looked for and eventually found it's location.
It's about a twenty five mile diameter sink-hole.
Now we know what a "Lobate Landslip" is.
If they had said, "a sink-hole outside Tsiolkovsky", I
would have found it in a second instead of the two hours trying to locate it.
Lobate is not a term used in mining or any other profession
with the exception of medical which it's used for describing the lobes or
condition of...according to Webster's.
Modern space exploration has given NASA and the scientific community a new and
confusing vocabulary. Most of the new terminology they use are derivatives of foreign languages.
Which makes them even more confusing if you happen to know those languages.
Another little frustrating effect this has on me is...
Just because the Moon is a foreign planet doesn't mean we have to give all it's features foreign names.
Craters and features named after people is fine but the rest is
Greek, Latin, Roman, Biblical and about a dozen others.
I think I'll create a Moon map

An AVI Version Implicating A Certain Organization.
This is one of the flight path revolutions and photos from Apollo 15's approach to the area.
What's interesting to me is... they were interested enough to take this HiRes photo of the sink-hole.
(although I'm sure Commander Worden wasn't watching the surface all the time. He was busy with other experiments
and had scheduled duties to perform) Also, I don't know if the cameras were taking photos automatically or manually.
And then eventually this photo was chosen to be posted at the Apollo archive.
But no others of the surrounding area. That could suggest they didn't want to hide it.
I've also noticed the Apollo archive hasn't posted any other photos showing clear errors.
The way the archive is set up, they have the photos in close sequence in each missions time frame with what looks like
selected photos that would fit within that time frame. So....they were able to be selective in what was posted.
So why would they post only one that has errors in it and not mention that little fact?
Or why didn't they select the next or previous sequential photo?
The AS15 photo was taken with the 70mm Hasselblad which has a 5 inch wide negative.
The prints this can produce and still be clear is more than half the size of your average poster.
But they most likely used 16x20 or the largest at 20x24 prints for ease of search. Someone had to see this.
Another odd note is...on the Lunar Orbiter site, the previous sequential photo, #12740 is the same photo rotated.
What's at the lower end of this sink-hole?
I haven't been able to locate any other photos around this area of Tsiolkovsky from this AS15 group.
Except for the group from the Lunar Orbiter site which are all lo-res.
And the wider-angle mapping metric high altitude passes.
After my experiences with the scanning authority,
I want to find another source.
They probably do exist but they aren't readily available
online, unless you want to trust the above library.
And there are other agencies
that have copies.
The video below is the mapping metric photos as is the context image.
These are beautifully clear and free of any anomalies.
And this is the only video on my site that I do recommend viewing in full screen.
Because the video is mostly hi-res
A little bonus I found in Tsiolkovsky. On the mountain inside the crater, there's a "Face of Kong".
I realize it's a natural geo-formation but thought it amusing none the less.
It retains its formation in all revolutions of the CSM no matter what the angle or shading.
I find that fact interesting. In some it actually looks like it has eyes.
I found about 15 images of these fly-overs where you can clearly see the face.
Here's 5 from progressive revolutions
at different angles.
Match the four digit number in the files with the revolution magazine.
Full image and close-ups.
Full images are 3Mb JPG's and close-ups are less than 1Mb.
Apollo 17 took the same flight paths in revolution numbers 62, 66 and 74.
Why? With all the missions combined, including Clementine, the Lunar Orbiters, Rangers and Russian, only 20% of the Moons surface was
photographed with hi-res close ups. Wouldn't it make more sense to take a different path for more coverage?
That also tells me there's something there of great interest.
There are two more posted 70mm Hasselblad photos of the sink-hole from Apollo 17 but from farther away on their approach and low-oblique.
There are no more posted from directly above as in the AS15 photo.

Why these were posted is anybody's guess. Possibly to show us
mistakes were made. But they look like the end of a roll.
Here's the Introduction document that tells you about
the imperfections in the Lunar Orbiter photos.
Scroll half way down to the section titled: Imperfections
It does include an explanation for condensation on the camera window but not on the photos themselves.
The above photo is about the "tower" at the top of the image.
This mosaic of Copernicus has been misinterpreted and lied about for decades also.
This is from one of the Lunar Orbiter mosaics.
Itís made up of numerous print strips that are taped to hold the strips in place.
These werenít imaging experts doing this, they were airmen doing a job they were assigned to either
because they had some photography experience before the service or were trained in this field by the AF.
And remember, this was the 60ís and early 70ís analog technologies that were in place.
High-end scanners weren't available to the military until 1973.
And they were not negative scanners. These "high-end" scanners were hand-held photoelectric cells on a wand that took a
steady hand to perfect a good scan. And the entire cell array was only six inches long and one and a half inches wide.
But early film drum scanners were the choice of scanners. Updated and much faster ones are still used today.
And only about 10% of the photos were scanned with these new instruments.
Mistakes were either overlooked or half-hearted attempts were made to correct them. This image is a good example.
After the mosaics were completed,
they were stored after copies were made.
The large mosaics were photographed again but in sections that created 16x20 prints.
These sections were for ease of study and handling.
On the Lunar Orbiter web site, these prints were re-photographed yet again using an
Olympus D600L digital camera,
with any errors in them or not.
One can immediately see the degradation in the image from numerous attempts to sharpen it up.
There are much better versions of Copernicus. And they're 70mm Hasselblad, not numerous strips taped together.

But some dimwits have convinced talk show hosts and publishers, that only care about ratings and sales,
into thinking these errors
are something else.
This version has been rejoined at the vertical splices, re-photographed in a smaller size and
scanned in a higher resolution this time. And done poorly.
How do I know this? Because this image was originally featured on NASA's site as, "Photo of the Century" as
PIA00094.bmp....a common scanning format. Why this was done I don't know.
They should have used one of the AS17 images above.
The vertical joins have gaps in them that when scanned, light escapes through the
gaps and create a bright spot in the shape of the gap.
These insets I overlaid into the photo show how they tried to correct that by darkening the areas.
They are in the same vertical line as the "tower" at the top. And that thing doesn't
look anything like a tower anyway. It looks more like the alien in "Independence Day" than a tower.
And if you look at the top of it, you'll see a broken and dashed white line going straight left across the images
outer space area. This is the last upper most strip that was joined with a space background image
or just a black color panel to give the illusion of space. You see this in the .bmp first version.
The .jpg version has been "cleaned up" a bit more.
Iím sure they didnít attempt to correct that white spot at the top because of its location and
probably wasnít considered an area that would be under study because of its extreme
distance in the background. And there are clearer photos of that area as well at higher resolutions.
That area is the mountainous region of Montes Carpatus NW of Copernicus.
If you look at the original image and check the placement of the other vertical lines, youíll see a few more of these.
The horizontal lines are where the original joins meet that made up the entire mosaic. And may have
gaps at those junctions as well.
These triangles are indexing marks in the camera. Some have been darkened, most are white
and some have been manipulated to make you think they are something else.
I thought they were in my context image of Tsiolkovsky. But after checking the next and previous photos,
they show only one black triangle
also. It's a piece of debris on the camera window.
I believe they are adjustable in width for reference, depending on the application.
I couldn't find a description on these in the camera information but I've seen these before.
And they were in photos taken on Earth.
Ones that seem to cross the join lines of the mosaics below are because of blooming.

THE TSIOLKOVSKY 500
Actually, I have no idea where this feature
is located but since this page deals with Tsiolkovsky....
This feature's name is Wallace, (Hey, an English name)
located in lower right section of Mare Imbrium, directly above Sinus Aestuum.
A little NE of Copernicus.
So I guess it should be called "The Wallace 500"...
....nahh, Tsiolkovsky has more pizzazz. And we have Rusty, Kenny, Mike and Steve already.
By the way, this is the Russian physicist Konstantin, the father of modern rocketry, (before Braun)
and not the composer, Peter Tchaikovsky. Spelling is slightly different but pronounced the same I believe.
Another note is the Lunar Orbiter
site mistakenly spells his last name with an "i" before the y.
I rotated both photos 90° for better orientation.
