A triangular object, 125 by 90 meters in size, with seven dots has been spotted on Google Moon.
It was discovered by YouTube user WowForReeel.
The website Tech and Gadget News describes it as much too regular to be a normal crater on the surface of the moon. It is too symmetrical to be a random structure caused by erosion of the lunar landscape.
“The gigantic shape actually looks like the leading edge of an immense, triangular space ship, similar to, so far, super-secret Stealth aircraft technology, but is much larger than any airplane ever built on Earth,” the site says.
Ross Davidson, development team leader at OrangeBus, presents a less exciting explanation.
He told the Huffington Post UK, “Basically it’s similar to the thing you get in all those ‘UFO videos’ you see these days from people with digital cameras – when they use digital zoom too much, you get ‘artifacts’ as the missing data is recreated using an algorithm which create regular shapes simply because of the nature of digital.”
“If you look at the dark lines in the pic they all align in the same way – it’s just a shadow which pretty much aligns with the pixels and when compressed/zoomed looks perfectly triangular.”
Looks like it’s not such a mystery after all.
