Google Maps Anomalies: An Alien’s Shadow on the Moon

Posted by on August 8, 2014

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.

Want to see it with your own eyes? Download Google Earth and head to the following coordinates: 27°34’26.35″N 19°36’4.75″W

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 suggests, lint on the image itself.
