Part 1:  “Humanoid Shadow” in Google Moon

© 2014 by Linda Moulton Howe

 


Close-up of “humanoid shadow” oriented in a “standing” position.
Is the odd Google Moon shadow produced by gullies or depressions
in moonscape? Above NASA image from “Odd figure
on the Moon?” posted July 18, 2014, on YouTube by wowforreeel.

 

August 15, 2014  - The U. K.'s MailOnline headlined this question on August 13th:  “The ‘man’ ON the moon?” Next were six bullet points related to the article in which the YouTube user name, “Wowforreeel” was misspelled, but images from Wowforreeel's YouTube video were reprinted of an unusual humanoid-shaped shadow in a hilly area at 27°34’26.35″N 19°36’4.75″W.  See Websites below.


U. K.'s MailOnline, August 13, 2014.

 

Google Moon Search

I forwarded the Mail article to retired U. S. Navy Captain Mark Wood, now 65. Mark graduated in 1971 from Georgia Tech in Atlanta with a Bachelor of Engineering Degree in Aerospace Engineering. The next year he trained as an overwater navigator qualified in celestial navigation and after being designated as a Naval Flight Officer was assigned to a U. S. Navy P-3C squadron at Moffett Field in California. For the next twenty-five years, Mark flew over 3,000 flight hours in three P-3 squadrons as a mission commander and tactical coordinator ultimately becoming both an Executive Officer and Commanding Officer of two U. S. Naval Air Reserve units.

I asked him to investigate the latitude and longitude in Google moon. Here is what he found:

August 14, 2014:  Linda – here are a number of images of the “human shape” from the Moon. They go from 212 miles down to 1400ft. The orientation is correct with North at the top of each frame. One thing that I found unusual is the direction of the shadows from the other features from the high altitude view compared to the close up view. The sun is shining from the East (right) as you can see from the 212 mile view. Since there doesn’t appear to be any high elevation structure to the east of this feature, then I presume the shadows are a result of “gullies or depressions”.

Google Moon is a service similar to Google Earth that shows satellite images of the Moon. It was launched by Google on July 20, 2009, the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing. The landing site of each of the Apollo missions is shown on the satellite image, providing more information as the user zooms in.

The images used to create the lunar images for Google Moon originate from NASA. So far, the space agency has not commented on exactly what lunar surface feature is producing the strange humanoid-looking shadow pattern.
