This has been generating a lot of stir in the popular media. A recent image spotted on Google Moon shows this weird humanoid shadow on the grayish terrain of Moon. While some are suggesting that this is actually an alien walking on the floor of moon, casting a shadow, others are finding odd resemblances to the Greek Statue called Colossus of Rhodes.
The video was viralized by YouTube user Wowforreeel, who posted a collection of Google Moon images showing similar alien-on-moon pictures to perform his analysis.
First claim first, the Daily Mail has once again stepped forth to add fuel to the fire, by calling the image a shadow cast by an alien walking on the moon. Apparently, they never paid attention to the little fact that an alien has to be huge, and I mean really huge, for its shadow to be so noticeable as to show up on a NASA satellite image.
The Examiner, a reputed online news resource, now claims that the figure is similar to the Colossus of Rhodes, an ancient Greek statue of a titan-god, that sunk into the ground during an earthquake in 226BC. Today, a similar looking statue known as the Modern Colossus can be viewed in New York.
What looks like a towering human figure striding the deserted plains of the Moon has been spotted on Google Earth and bears an uncanny resemblance to what the ancient statue, “The Colossus of Rhodes”, is thought to have looked like before it was felled into the harbor of the Greek island by a massive earthquake in 226 BC.
Currently, all these claims seem largely far-fetched, and right now, a simple camera glitch explanation seems to suffice. After all, such incidents have happened with NASA in the past. What do you think?17 comments
