“ALIEN ACTIVITY?” : NASA footage of crashed ‘UFO’ on moon sparks WILD conspiracy theories


NASA astronomers discovered an unidentified spacecraft heading for a lunar collision late last year. However, the rocket crashed into the moon near the Hertzsprung Crater on March 4, 2022. NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter captured the resulting crater. Amazingly, the resulting crater created a double impact crater. An eastern crater (diameter 18 meters, approximately 19.5 meters) is superimposed on a western crater (diameter 16 meters, approximately 17.5 meters), as reported by NASA on June 24.

According to a report by the New York Post, the shared footage has sent conspiracy theorists wild on social media, with some calling it evidence of “alien activity”. However, there could be a simple explanation that the dent was left because of the uncontrolled rocket. While astronomers believe a giant piece of metal may have hit the surface of the satellite on March 4. But the origin of the rocket remains a mystery. At first it was thought to belong to SpaceX, but then it was pinned on the Chinese space agency. NASA said images of the crash site that produced a rare double-impact crater could help astronomers identify the spacecraft’s origin.

“The double crater was unexpected and may indicate that the rocket body had large masses at each end,” NASA wrote. “Typically, a spent rocket has mass concentrated at the end of the engine; the rest of the rocket stage consists mostly of an empty fuel tank. The origin of the rocket body remaining uncertain, the dual nature of the crater may indicate its identity. No other rocket body impact on the Moon has created double craters,” the space agency said.

It is the first time that a man-made object has crashed on the moon without being directed there. According to NASA, the double crater he left behind is about 29 meters (95 feet) wide.

In January, astronomer Bill Gray reported that the junk was a SpaceX Falcon 9 upper stage launched from Florida in February 2015, which was on a mission to deploy an Earth observation satellite called DSCOVR for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. However, he later retracted his claim and said the rocket part most likely belonged to China. “In 2015, I (mis)identified this object as 2015-007B, the second stage of the DSCOVR spacecraft,” said Gray, who developed asteroid tracking software Project Pluto, at the time.
