UFO truth seekers have long claimed that we do not return to the Moon… because it was already occupied by aliens with buildings constructed on the lunar dark side.
Tyler Glockner, of YouTube channel Secureteam10, now claims to have found evidence that the structures exist and may even be mobile.
In a video uploaded to the channel today, he claims photos taken by NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter which circled the Moon, may actually show some of the structures.
He points to a number of circular objects that can be seen on the lunar surface.
He said: “This object on the surface almost looks like part of some sort of nuclear reactor – with these long smoke stacks.
“It’s been called a satellite dish of some sort.
“It’s an amazing piece of photographic evidence showing these massive installations on the moon.”
He then talked about UFO allegedly seen previously circulating the moon in earlier video footage.
He said: “When I discovered this UFO and this moon photograph and then was reminded about the other photograph – it looks identical.
“I think we may have the same object and that maybe this structure may not have been a stationary structure.”
NASA categorically denies finding any evidence of aliens during the lunar missions or in any of the pictures.
Sceptics say claims such as these are just the results of pareidolia, a phenomenon when the brain tricks the eyes into seeing familiar objects or shapes in textures or patterns such as a rock surface.
In other words people see what they want to see.
Viewers tended to agree with this.
One YouTube user posted: “Am I the only one that can’t recognise how it looks like a UFO.”
Another wrote: “They’re obviously just craters.”
One believer added: “This is just further proof that structures, crafts and even extra-terrestrials are on and around our moon.”
Mr Glockner’s channel appears on a number of UFO website blacklists which were compiled by hoax busters and more sceptical researchers.
He is accused of using hoax footage or misrepresenting objects he knows to be rocks as aliens or craft.
Mr Glockner denies this and says he is a committed UFO researcher.
UFO hoax buster Scott Brando quickly claimed to have debunked the new video.
He said he identified the alleged structure in the Secureteam10 video as just a crater – the Greaves Crater to be precise.
He provided Express.co.uk with a sharper NASA image showing this crater.
He said the image used in the video of was poor quality and in low resolution.
Mr Brando, who runs website ufoofinterest.org, said: “A crater seems to look like a ‘satellite dish’but it’s just an optical illusion.
“Also, a crater can look convex, instead of concave.”
He later tweeted about his findings.
