The theory of a spire on the surface of the moon is real. UFO researchers claim that the evidence of this theory exists.
YouTube channel Mexicogeek made the discovery and posted the video, which has been pounced on by Scott C Waring, editor of UFO Sightings Daily as proof of a myth dating back to the original moon landings.
He posted: “This is the legendary spire on Earth’s moon.
“It’s been seen before in 1967 Orbiter 3 photos.
“This spire is 3.64 miles tall according to Google ruler, but it is only an estimate.
“It may be off as much as half a mile more or less.”
UFO hunters have debated since 1967 what a number of so-called anomalies in NASA images of the moon could be.
Mr Waring appears to be referring to an object that has become known as the Shard in the 1960s pictures.
On Richard Hoagland’s Lunar Anomalies website, he said: “Poor resolution images like this one of the “Shard” have led some to conclude it is an ephemeral “outgassing” event.
That would mean the sudden release of a volatile gas from within its surface.
Mr Waring said: “The spire looks to be coming out of the centre of a crater, but these are not craters, but many small white shiny structures.
“The spire was probably built to accommodate a very large vessel so that it could dock safely without landing.”
