I myself had not been introduced to the Ina Crater and its amazing blue hue until our Forum Administrator Todd wrote his forum page about it!  You want to make sure you check out the link to the forum so you can see all of Todds files in the .png full format.  I have adjusted them down to JPG for the article. There is so much still to learn about our own planet and the Moon.  I hope that we can build the base that whipers around Washington have been talking about since the election of Donald Trump to the presidency.  Imagine what is there to find in all of the strange areas and what look to be abandoned mining facilites that we have found over all the years. (See previous Moon articles).  The helium 3 alone on the moon is worth looking into mining.  Personally I feel as if the moon was placed in its current possition for a reason by a very advanced civilization.  Everything is so perfect how we have solar and lunar eclipses that look like no others on any of the planets around us.  The distance and size away from Earth is no coincidence.  Various scientfic experiments speak to the Moon ringing like a "bell" which NASA now attributes to "Moonquakes".

Have you seen the amazing bright blue crater on the Moon?  I hadn't until one of the Administrators at our website whatsupinthesky.com Todd did an amazing job formatting these images from various sources from Apollo and LROC and shared them on our forum at WUITS http://www.whatsupinthesky.com/index.php/forum/the-moon/3145-ina-from-apollo-lroc#_=_

Here are the links to the images as the appear right to left on the top bar during the video..  This ones worth a good look!

Lunar Object Thought to be Apollo 10 Debris, Taken First by Apollo 8

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

There are three Apollo 10 70mm frames which show some kind of debris above the Moon. The frame identification numbers are AS10-28-3988, AS10-28-3989 and AS10-28-3990. The pictures were taken just above the far side crater of Ventris. The notes on the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal reference that the object is "almost certainly" a piece of mylar insulation that tore off from the top hatch as mentioned by John Young at 118:41:31. To me, the object resembles a chunk of dry wall. Below are crops from each frame showing the object in question.

I myself, in the past, had thought that the explaination was fairly resonable, or I thought it might have been a piece of accumulated ice from the spacecraft. Well, it appears it's not. Below is an Apollo 8 70mm hasselblad shot (AS08-13-2319) of the far side crater Aitken, the deepest crater on the moon located along the northern rim of the south pole. Below is a small version processed from the NASA/JSC/ASU raw tif scan.

When I originally looked at the Apollo 8 scan full frame, I noticed a prominent white spec in the upper right corner. When enlarged, you probably already guessed, it appears to be the same rogue object that was taken by Apollo 10 about five months later. A larger, enhanced version from the NASA/JSC/ASU scan below.

 Update 06/01/16:

I rotated the cropped version of AS08-13-2319 180° and turned it backwards to match the Apollo 10 perspective of the object (below). It's likely the Apollo 8 image shows the opposite side. Compare this one with the cropped version of AS10-28-3988 (top). The object appears to hover somewhere between the craters Ventris and the westen edge of Aitken on the Lunar far side.

The Strange Terrain of the Descartes Highlands

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

 

Apollo 16’s Orion landed (after about six hours) in what was named the Descartes Highlands, a bumpy region north of Descartes crater, featuring the Cayley formation, overlapping plains once created by volcanic flow. Descartes crater is an ancient impact crater, so collapsed and worn, that over time it has become more of a bumpy mountainous region. The Apollo 16 panoramic frames AS16-P-4558, AS16-P-4559, and AS16-P-4560 were taken between Descartes Crater and the Apollo 16 landing site 50 km north in the Descartes Highlands.

These panoramic frames in particular are littered with strange and unique topography. There are groups of what appear to be structural complexes and smaller unique formations present which generally don’t match the standard topographical model local to the region. I have processed some examples below from the NASA/JSC/ASU raw tif tiles.

Below, from AS16-P-4558, of Descartes Crater, a winding row of ascending levels with some strange formations on the embankment.

One of the unusual formations enlarged below. Whether it is a geologic formation or an ariftical construct, its form appears to be exotic.

(Cropped from AS16-P-4558, processed from the NASA/JSC/Arizona State University raw tif tile 4.)

Below, an enlargement of what appears to be a structure (center) just under the embankment edge. There also appears to be smaller structures on top and a “bridge” or "ramp" connecting to it. The structure has dark square markings along the side, resembling hanger entrances.

The image below is from AS16-P-4559, just east of Descartes in the highlands. The highland rise appears to be one complex of solid structure.

Structures Near Vitruvius?

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

 

I think among some of the best Apollo imagery, the Apollo panoramics that were shot of the Taurus / Littrow valley and the surrounding areas near Vitruvius crater, are perhaps the very best. The solid exposures and unique topography of the area make for a really interesting series of images. The series I’m referring to is from about AS17-P-2300 to AS17-P-2321 taken during orbit 15. I have posted a number of images in the forum from this particular series (below).

Image AS17-P-2301 taken near Littrow F and Vitruvius A, is of course, no exception. The image itself has many isolated patches of darker terrain which are similar to the image below cropped from the NASA/JSC/Arizona State University tif tile 5. In the center of the cropped image is a step “C” shaped platform with slightly higher elevation on one side, slightly lower on the other.

2301 1

(Above image processed from the NASA/JSC/Arizona Stae University AS17-P-2301 raw tif tile 5.)

On the platform, there appear to be structures resembling buildings. The largest structure visible (below, center) appears as if it might have an A-frame construction design. Other structures appear more traditionally square and a couple of structures appear to have tipped over. (Below, center left).

2301 2

(Above image processed from the NASA/JSC/Arizona State University AS17-P-2301 raw tif tile 5.)

Below, also from AS17-P-2301, an odd arrangement of structures and objects resembling statues casting a shadow on the lunar suface behind them.

Pytheas Crater City?

On the moon, in the Southern region of Mare Imbrium, lies a 19 km wide impact crater called Pytheas, named by Riccioli & Grimaldi after the Greek Philosopher and explorer.

(Above, Pytheas crater from AS17-M-2443. NASA/JSC/Arizona State University Original)

The crater morphology has something of a duel identity. The southwest half has terrain that appears to have been “slumped around.” The northeast half has a slightly higher crater rim and inside the crater there is an outer embankment. The embankment in that area of the internal crater bowl keeps the angle of descent from dropping off vertically, so it keeps it from being a steep angle like the southwest edge.

The Apollo panoramic frames AS17-P-3077, AS17-P-3080, and AS17-P-3081 appear to show the most detail from the northeast half and the features are quite anomalous. The first thing I noticed was what looked like engineered structures possibly placed right on the northeast crater edge (below).

 3080 7 crp1b

(Above, images processed from the NASA/JSC/Arizona State University AS17-P-3080 raw tif tile 7.)

There also appears to be a three dimensional grid sitting on top of the inner embankment just inside the northeast crater rim (below). The grid does not match any other terrain in Pytheas crater. It has the appearance of an engineered rectangular structure making this section of the crater a good candidate for the existence of an arcology. For those unfamiliar with the term, it is essentially a three dimensional city sometimes referred to as a city in one complex.

(Above, image processed from the NASA/JSC/Arizona State University AS17-P-3081 raw tif tile 7.)

The LROC has imaged the opposite crater wall, but I have yet to find a LROC image of the enbankment /grid side. Below are some other notable miscellaneous features within Pytheas crater, starting with this group of objects from AS17-P-3081 sitting on what looks like a square patch of outlined terrain.

Amazing New Color Moon Image & Artifacts - China's Chang'e 3

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

China has done something that has really taken me by surprise.  They have released high resolution images from the three Chang'e missions that they have currently completed.  Not only have they released high resolution images to the web, they have allowed the public to download the actual RAW data which is much crisper then almost any of the images we have received back to the moon until this date.  Below are links to the article that links you to the blog that has downloaded the images for you already.  I also have setup an account on the Chinese servers that allows me access to even more!  Check out the amazing colors in the soil.  There are no jpg images in these like we are used to in the Mars images.  The strange shapes in artifacts out on the fridge look like really cool rock formations or possible artifacts!  Enjoy and decide for yourself as always!

Description:

China has shocked us all by adding a huge amount of images to the public from all three of the Chang'e missions.  The one we are looking at was taken from the Jade Rabbit Rover on the Chang'e 3 mission.  We had thought the rover had died but it was still sending back images!  Look at the beautiful color!  There are about three or four artifacts in this image that look like they have been made by some sort of intelligent civilization.  Check it out and let us all know what you think!  As always the link to the image is below as well as a link to Enhanced images on the WUITS website!

Todd did a great job reworking these images from the .img and .lbl files over at the PDS.  I am sure someone has found this before but it was new to me for sure.  I didn't know what to call this video!  Best sand castle on Mars?   There are so many what look to be manufactured items on these two images that they were totally worth a video if you ask me!  I am trying to bring you all the best and boy do we have a couple saved up for you!  Much love to everyone as I have been busy with work and around the house and haven't had time to put as many videos as I want out.  I am going to bring the stuff that I really enjoy for now and this year after the new year I will be back to where I can publish more!   So what did I miss on here?  I have a bunch of great enhanced images on the article for this one.
