WHAT ARE TRANSIENT LUNAR PHENOMENA?

For centuries, people have reported seeing flashing lights on the moon. They come in different colors, all emanating from a specific area of the moon. The activity is intermittent. An amber colored light may suddenly appear and then disappear just seconds later.

Once telescopes were invented in 1608, astronomers became even more fascinated with the intermittent flashing lights.

The majority of this activity is around Aristarchus, a crater almost the size of the Grand Canyon.

What is this translunar phenomenon, more commonly known as transient lunar phenomenon? Could extraterrestrial life have anything to do with it?

In 1966, a transient lunar phenomena report was compiled for NASA by four of the top scientists and astronomers of the time. Barbara Middlehurst, a well-known astronomer, worked with her team member, Patrick Craig, and others. They prepared a detailed chronology of lunar events that occurred from June 1950 to October 1967. The report was published in 1968, prior to the first moon landing.

Middlehurst provided detailed documentation on sightings of moving objects, flashing lights and many other odd events on the lunar surface. About 60 percent of the activity was around Aristarchus or based on activity coming from the crater itself. Some examples of her entries include the following:

  • October 25, 1966: “Large bright area obscuring half of crater wall. It was not present on Oct. 24″
  • April 22, 1967: “Aristarchus so bright that it could be seen by the naked eye”
  • August 13, 1967: “Glow in interior in crater”

Naturally, the crater was an area of interest once manned missions to the moon began. Many audio tapes and photos of the moon missions, particularly the most important ones from Apollo 11, are mysteriously missing.

One copy of a debriefing log taken after the astronauts had returned from their first landing on the moon reveals a conversation with astronauts Neil Armstrong, Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, Michael Collins and an unknown speaker. They discussed that one request had been for them to look at the crater Aristarchus to see if they “could see any glow or evidence of observations that had been made by people on the ground.”

Aldrin concluded that the lights around and emanating from Aristarchus were brighter “than anything else we could see in either direction.” They also mentioned that the photos taken during the trip could shed light on what they had seen. But, the photos are either missing or of such poor quality it is difficult to use them in a meaningful way.

In 1994, a joint task force between NASA and the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization sent a probe to the moon as part of their Clementine Project. The probe had several tasks, one of which was to fly over the Aristarchus Crater and take photos. Astronomers who viewed the photos reported seeing a clearly visible blue dome-shaped structure when the Aristarchus “lights are on.”

Even though the photos are in low resolution and highly pixelated, astronomers believe there is a dome structure in the Aristarchus Crater. One photo, dated September 7, 2007, shows an “electric blue” color emanating from the crater with “dome like structures” in the crater itself.

There is a strong indication that the dome-shaped structure is a fusion reactor. A former NASA manager of the photo department claims that the government has evidence of ancient alien cities on the moon. These were discovered mostly during the Apollo program. If there is evidence of ancient cities, could the activity around the Aristarchus Crater indicate current extraterrestrial life?

The Alternative 3-Secret Space Program Connection

In 1977, a British television program titled Science Report: Alternative 3, part of an Anglia TV documentary series, aired and planted the seed of fear about an alien invasion in society at large. The program focuses on the disappearances of prominent scientists, engineers, and astronomers. The speculation is that the Earth is collapsing and will soon be unable to support human life, so these people have been taken by several governments acting together in an intergovernmental Secret Space Program (SSP) with the goal of developing colonies on other planets, using the moon as a way-station.

If you ever have a chance to view the program, it is so convincing that you will want to volunteer for the SSP, pack up your family, and head for Mars. However, there is only one known copy: it is in the possession of Alternative 3’s director. It is thought to be fading and grainy due to the passage of time. All other copies of the program were destroyed as were all contracts and any paperwork referencing the show as if the program never existed.

Although the TV program aired in June of 1977, the producers claimed it was originally intended to air on April Fool’s Day. Workers in the industry were striking, so the air date was postponed. When it did air, the reaction of viewers was reminiscent of the 1938 radio broadcast by Orson Wells of “The War of the Worlds,” which created civil unrest and havoc. The broadcast was meant to be a joke, but thousands of people in the U.S. thought the Earth was being invaded by Martians. They hit the streets in panic, not knowing what to do next or how to escape.

The program was so disturbing it was only shown once in England and once in Australia. The U.S. refused to air the program. It was never shown anywhere again. Even though the directors and producers of Alternative 3 were adamant that it was fiction, questions still abound. Is there some truth to the Alternative 3 theory?

Are there three alternatives for Earth inhabitants in case there is a catastrophic event that threatens the habitability of the planet? Thousands of people disappear every year, never to be heard from again. Could these people have been abducted to develop a Breakaway Civilization on the moon or another planet, like Mars?

Fact or Fiction?

Immediately after it aired, the producers of the program announced it had been fiction. The slot where Alternative 3 aired was one that routinely ran documentary episodes. The title of the series was Science Reports and Alternative 3 was the title of just one segment; it was the last program of the season of the Science Reports.

The program was created by reputable reporters and researchers who were well respected for their documentaries. Why would they risk their reputation by airing such a hoax? Was it really a hoax or was it a disguised message to the public about a secret space program?

A book with the same title, Alternative 3, was subsequently written by Leslie Watkins. It presented some of the theories of the alleged hoax as truth. The book and the television program promoted the idea that astronauts had landed on Mars in 1962 in a joint U.S./U.S.S.R. effort and definitively identified intelligent extraterrestrial life. It also promoted the idea that climate change was just one thing that could soon make the Earth uninhabitable.
