People on the Moon?


Our friend James Clark has a new article about the Moon, and people on it (perhaps).

Click HERE for Mr. Clark's take on how the Moon and its alleged inhabitants have been treated by media and writers over the years and even now.

  • Why does he ignore the Cydonia region of Mars, and the (in)famous face thereon?

  • Christopher:

    One can only attend to a few of the many alien hot-spots that exist all over the place, as you know.

  • Only because the article's about the Moon, not Mars.

  • James...

    CDA is just having sport with you I think.

    It's that Brit humor, which is so dry and wry, as you well know.

  • A few more comments:

    H.P.Wilkins was indeed a lunar astronomer, but it was not he who first spotted the 'bridge' on the moon. That distinction belongs to an American John J.O'Neill in July or Aug 1953. Wilkins confirmed it a few months later, but as James says, it was soon debunked an an illusion. Keyhoe talks about it in one of his books, but omits the debunking.

    I believe the phrase "mission control" was never used by the Apollo astronauts, or by ground control. It was always "Houston". If this is the case, that alone is sufficient to label the alleged conversation a hoax. I recall reading something to this effect decades ago.

    Yes it was about the moon, not Mars. Perhaps the next installment will be about Mars. Think of all the sensational discoveries there!

  • Thanks for the comments and additional info, cda. As for a Mars instalment, I'm glad you wrote that because I was indeed thinking of doing something along those lines. If I get the chance, it won't be for a few weeks yet but I do have something in mind.
