The Internet’s imagination has gone wild since a shadowy figure was spotted on the moon’s surface last month.
The “figure”, with a shadow, could have been created by any number of geological formations on the moon’s surface. But as these sorts of things typically go, some are pointing to aliens and an ancient statue from Greece as the figure’s true identity.
Even The Examiner even urges its readers to set aside all logic before examining the mysterious shape:
Of course, the shadow might be explained in a number of ways, particularly as a trick of light or a camera lens glitch.
But, if those explanations are ruled out, it still leaves the question of what this object is, since it appears to be rising a great distance from the surface of the Moon.
Some say the figure resembles the ancient Greek statue, “The Colossus of Rhodes,” which is thought to have sunk into a harbor after a massive earthquake in 226 B.C.
Here is a picture of what the statue was thought to have looked like:
Wowforreeel seems to think it looks like an alien walking alongside its own shadow. Wowforreeel initially thought the ‘figure’ was something drawn into the picture, but after going to Google Moon, whatever it is… is actually there.
