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.

    Very interesting, how tall do you think it is. I don’t have nor have ever been on Google earth.

      Oh, I’m not sure. An object would have to be pretty tall to cast a shadow that large/visible, though. And if it were a shadow, the biggest problem is the fact that it’s cast in the wrong direction.

    vril or thull…. impersonating a humanoid… or the insect like zeta reticulai (the gray ) and its shadow… same thing is in the Apollo 17 utubes capturing the vril or thul impersonating an ape like creature, ” and Satan attacked with an army of apes, from the moon… etc etc The moon is wormwood.. as we will find out soon eneough, the ruins of a steel stud framed airport is actually America.. and Kennedy, trying to outwit America and build on the moon anyway… but they were blown up, and Kennedy was assassinated because of it.. AMEN

    Occam’s Razor, guys. It’s Slenderman.

    Why does the rover or whatever is on Mars not take video instead of pictures, then If it was whatever you could see it walking. And that video would answer the question unless they don’t want to tell us..
