Is this a photograph of an alien base on the dark side of the moon?
The most incredible news in Ufology would be confirmation that Unidentified Aerial Phenomena seen and reported by thousands annually in America and across the world is in fact craft piloted by extraterrestrial entities. A landing on the White House lawn would go a long way, but don't expect that to happen. Why would an alien intelligence wanting to make themselves known to the inhabitants of Earth pick any one nation to make contact with when the goal would presumably be to establish a relationship with the entire world? Short of a landing on the White House lawn, convincing confirmation would be corroboration of an alien base on the moon...THIS HAS ALREADY HAPPENED!
According to the book "Above Top Secret" by Timothy Good, both Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin observed what appeared to be a large base and mining operation on the far side of the Moon during the Apollo 11 flight. In a communication with NASA's Mission Control in Houston, Texas, ham radio operators overheard the following exclamation, "These babies are huge, Sir! Enormous! Oh my God! You wouldn't believe it! I'm telling you there are other spacecraft out there, lined up on the far side of the crater edge! They're on the Moon watching us!" Neil Armstrong himself confirmed the statement, referring to the base as a "moon city" and noting that Apollo 11 was warned off by an alien spacecraft..
If this is true, why haven't other astronauts reported possible alien spacecraft? Joining Armstrong and Aldrin in their informal UFO sighting club are:
When an investigator receives an assignment, it is given the most sober consideration. Most of the time, a story is conveyed with little to no corroboration. The investigator has to hone their interviewing skills to ferret out the honest observer, who might also have been affected emotionally or spiritually, from the hoaxer who might want attention or to thwart MUFON's investigative ability by bogging hardworking investigators down with un-credible yarns.
Occasionally, a typical investigator will be assigned a case that presents multiple witnesses and possibly some photographs or video. This raises the credibility factor and requires a greater investment of time in checking and cross checking facts. You see many of these cases on internet sites and places like You Tube. More is done within MUFON than just posting pictures and trying to raise the incredibility and excitement level. Such postings are generally amateurish in nature and usually result in little more than encouraging "enthusiasts" to tell more outrageous stories.
