Alien-Like Figure Spotted on Moon via Google Earth Map (Video)

Check out the video of what looks to be an alien figure spotted on the Moon this July using Google Earth map.

Regardless if you believe there's life on other planets or not, you might want to check out the video embedded to see what looks to be like an alien spotted on the Moon using Google Earth maps. Captured by YouTube user Wowforreal and submmited UFO Sighting Daily, the person claims, "An irregularly shaped dark spot he noticed on Google Moon looks like it could be a cast shadow from a massive standing object, or figure. At first I thought maybe it was something drawn into the picture but after going to G. Moon, whatever it is or isn't.. uh, is there. You get the idea. Go check it out and of course decide for yourself. Debunk it, shred it, figure it out."

The image was captured in July 2014 and from what we've seen of it from the video, it appears to be a shadowy figure of something. If you're still skeptical, go check it out for yourself using Google Earth with the coordinates provided in the video (hopefully, it hasn't "moved" by the time you check it). Whatever it is, it's certainly big; or at least big enough to be seen on the Moon this visibly.

Is this a sign that the alien apocalypse is upon us? Probably not. But hey, even if it is, we have the Guardians of the Galaxy to protect us, right? What do you make of the image? Could it be someone trolling people using Google Earth for alien sightings or could this possibly be the real deal?

Huh. Looks like Marvel was right. Uatu is up there watching over us.

Good to know.

Eh...if there's pictures of him doing drawings with his nose while someone says "Upside down upside down", then I'll be excited.

Well I'll go prepare for our alien overlords.

Wait.. Why does google EARTH have moon maps? That bothers me much more than it should to be honest.

So how long until its revealed it's just a rock?

Eh, alien or not not much I can do about it.
Just gonna wait it out, I doubt it's anything alive though considering how barren the moon is. And if it is a living thing that somehow survived on the moon with no spaceship in sight well I guess all we can hope for is that it's just a friendly stranded alien and our governments don't dissect the poor chap.

Why do everybody forget that their brain's primary function is to find patterns in noise, so you don't get eaten by a pack of wolves?!?

Of cause there's gonna be plenty of "false-positives".

It must be an alien!

Look at the craters around it, in them, the shadows are going almost exactly the other way.

Only an alien would have a shadow that goes towards the light source.

I'd like to imagine that it's Google trolling us, or rather, the paranoids that buy into the "no really, the UFOs are here and the governments are trying to cover them up" 'stuff'.

It'd be a pretty funny joke :P

If it isn't though, I'd chalk it up to coincidence, because in the amassed shared knowledge of mankind, there will always be coincidences. In this case, it's just a person wanting to see something where there is nothing.

My first thought as well. I wouldn't put it past the company that makes mini games out of their homepage.

You know what this reminds me of? The face on Mars that showed up ages ago

Turned out to be shadows cast by a bunch of rocks, but it still made lots of people suddenly believe that there was life on Mars trying to contact us.

So chances are likely it's not a person, not aliens, not a troll, or anything else like that. Just us finding a sailboat in the clouds.

figure with same shape and shadow appears on various parts of the moon acording to comments (repeating itself every 36km) of the video. so i would asume its ether prank done by google or something messing up the satellite that took the pictures (some small part on top of the camera part of satellite or mby even shadow of the satellite itself?)

It's the Watcher! Or Dr. Manhattan! Or the ghost of Neil Armstrong!

Looks like a zombie, on the moon. A Moon Zombie. God help us all.

They are effectively safe from decay up there, so the zombies are clearly using the moon as a staging ground in preparation for their inevitable invasion of earth.

Shiftygiant:

[ghostvoice] Give back my naaaaaads! [/ghostvoice]

...oh wait, wrong Armstrong.

*ahem*

Anywho, that must be one giant-ass alien, since the smallest classified crater size is about 5km wide and you can clearly see a few craters around this "guy."

You may be able to escape bacteria that cause decomposition, but you can't escape thermodynamics.

Whew, dodged another bullet.

Yup, that's definitely....a shape.

Especially since a false positive still leads to survival, whereas a false negative likely won't.

OR Satan!

Yes, well.. I'm not convinced we are safe yet. They could be... ( _)>⌐■-■ ...Zombie Alcoholics. (⌐■_■)

More likely a ridge like as even if it was a figure it would be about 100m tall. The shadow is also in the wrong place if he thinks the bigger shape is a man, zoom out and 40km to the south east there is a hill showing the shadow on the moon falling to the west, the shadow as the poster claim is falling to the east.

Its still an interesting find but sorry, no coconut.

And it's apparently hundreds of meters tall.

Alright people this post nailed it, time for everyone to go home.
No actually wait! If we can just get him back down to continue his inspirational work on children's television he can get back to promoting creativity and imagination in the otherwise slackjawed delinquent youth of today. Somebody find him his rocket ship...

"Hurry Up!"

You said it Blackboard.

I know I'm probably going to lose some serious geek cred for this...but what in the name of the Seven are you both referencing?!?

Looks to me like both shapes drape themselves over those mounds. That makes me think it's nothing but shadow.

I bet its the Nazis on the moon who have been stranded there for many years because they lost contact with their overlords on earth when the Nazis were defeated

Attack on moon titan!

(0o0")

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

My guess is that it's some weird rock formation giving an optical illusion just like that photo the rock formations on Mars which look like a face when the shadows are at perfect angles. Or it's some prank that Google likes to do with their maps.

Most people are either idiots, or ignorant of how the brain works.

Though I'm betting most people here are just having some fun with the idea rather than lending it any credence.

Like that... what was it again... man on mars thing a decade or so ago in other words. That too was something similar if I don't remember it too wrongly. I do recall how different it looked in proper high resolution images though.

Yes! I love that part of youtube with all the videos of big foot, the loch ness monster,ghosts, ufos and aliens.

Sometimes those people can get super creative and make up some of the coolest supernatural/sc-fi stories. Half the time I don't know if they are being are being crazy serious or are just trying to entertain people.

I was going to post the X-files theme, but I realized I had posted it within the last few weeks, so that is out.

Jesus, this reminds me of that horrible Sci-Fi channel documentary (I refuse to use that other spelling) that just came on. It had some stupid title, like "Aliens on the Moon" or some shit. It was basically an hour and a half of people coloring in various shadows on the moon and "finding" structures.

The world is ready. KNEEL BEFORE ZOD!

Goddamit, I so called it! When the news broke that Google would put together Google Earth style maps for the Moon and Mars, my first reaction was "In a few days some idiots with too much time will come out of the woodworks to find some smudges and claim that they are aliens/pyramids/faces/space-penguins en masse", and lo and behold, it happened.

Someone get me James Randi and his one million dollars. I am apparently a psychic. -.-'

Huh. It sure looks decidedly human for something that's supposed to be alien.

And you know...if I squint REALLY hard I can almost see the lawn chair it's sitting on and the Corona in it's hand(?).

Your claim seems more valid than most of the nut-jobs that attempt to nab the prize.

So we found another rock formation that looks like a guy? I do not see how this is news worthy. It is like reporting on that nut that "proved" the moon was a hologram.

Okay, I'm gonna say what we're all thinking.

It's the statue from Lost, isn't it? 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42!
