U̳F̳O̳ h̳u̳n̳t̳e̳r̳s̳ believe they have spotted an a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ base on the Moon, which they claim is hard evidence of e̳x̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳s residing on the lunar surface.
Earth’s Moon might look dull and lifeless to the naked eye but some conspiracy theorists remain adamant a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s could reside there. And the latest image which supposedly shows a base on the surface of the Moon will do nothing to dampen the enthusiasm of proponents of the a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳-Moon theory.
Many a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ h̳u̳n̳t̳e̳r̳s̳ are adamant e̳x̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳s are developing mysterious technology on the Moon.
Some now believe they have hit the jackpot by discovering NASA photos supposedly showing a series of bases on the lunar orb.
Inside the Tycho crater, one of the Moon’s biggest craters found in the southern hemisphere, conspiracy theorists believe they have spotted a strange structure.
A̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ h̳u̳n̳t̳e̳r̳s̳ have been prowling through NASA images and stumbled on the odd-looking building, which resembles a small city.
By analysing the images, U̳F̳O̳ enthusiasts believe the structure is about half-a-mile long – and the sighting has sparked some out-there theories.
There are two other objects which prominent conspiracy theorist Scott C Waring says he discovered, one being a fungus and the other being a spaceship.
According to Mr Waring, this equates to evidence of a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s on the lunar surface.
He wrote on his blog ET Database: “The black structure above is about half-a-mile long but looks to be almost new.
“It is made of a black material to keep it hidden and make it blend into the shadows.
“There were two other structures near this black one. One looked very old and fungus-like and the other looked like a ship, since it was sitting above the surface.
“Many structures have been reported over the years in Tycho crater, and this just adds to that evidence.”
This is not the first time a mysterious structure has been found on the lunar surface.
Some conspiracy theorists claim the Moon could be occupied by a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s and that is the reason NASA has not returned since the Apollo missions ended in 1972.
They suspect findings such as this supposed base and other anomalies could be monuments built by an A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ civilisation similar to the pyramids and other structures on Earth.
However, sceptics and NASA say the structure and other similar findings are just the effects of pareidolia – a psychological phenomenon when the brain tricks the eyes into seeing familiar objects or shapes where they do not exist.
NASA said: “Pareidolia is the psychological phenomenon where people see recognizable shapes in clouds, rock formations, or otherwise unrelated objects or data.
“There are many examples of this phenomenon on Earth and in space.”
