It’s been called an alien, a colossus, a shadow.
The figure, a humanoid blob on the surface of the moon, was brought to the Internet’s attention last month thanks to “anomaly hunter” Jasenko and Google’s satellite imagery program Google Earth.
On July 18, the images were showcased in a video uploaded to YouTube by user wowforreeel.
“An irregularly shaped dark spot he noticed on Google Moon looks like it could be a cast shadow from a massive standing object, or figure. At first I thought maybe it was something drawn into the picture but after going to G. Moon, whatever it is or isn’t.. uh, is there. You get the idea. Go check it out and of course decide for yourself. Debunk it, shred it, figure it out.”

Current possible explanations for the strange shadow include Space Nazis, giant aliens, Sasquatch, the Slender Man, or an elusive Moon Wizard. Or, as one commenter at Examiner.com suggests, lint on the image itself.
