Alien enthusiasts browsing through NASA images from an Apollo mission and believe they have hit the jackpot in the hunt for extraterrestrials. The supposed proof comes in the form of a rock, which vaguely resembles a bottle top.
This was evidence enough for certain conspiracy theorists who believe it is an alien base.
The photo comes from one of NASA’s early Apollo missions, and according to prominent alien hunter Scott C Waring, it is “100 percent proof that aliens build structures” on the Moon.
Mr Waring made the claim on his blog UFO Sightings Daily, saying: “I found a strange looking structure on Earth’s moon today.
“I was in an old NASA site and found what looks like an empty plastic bottle top.
“Well if this photo of the Moon was not faked by NASA, then this photo is 100 percent proof that aliens build structures in craters on Earth’s Moon.
“Now, I believe this theory to be true. That a alien structure happened to look like a discarded, cut off bottle top.
“But from what I see, the photo looks authentic taken during an Apollo mission.”
Some conspiracy theorists believe the Moon is occupied by aliens and say the reason NASA has not returned since the Apollo missions ended in 1972 is because of an extraterrestrial threat.
Nonetheless, Mr Waring has made several claims that the Moon is home to aliens, and last month claimed to find an extraterrestrial space ship on the lunar surface.
He said: “I found a UFO, unidentified flying object hovering over an area of the moon map.
“The object is metallic, smooth and shiny. It measures 25 miles across according to the moon map ruler.
“The craft is hovering, as if parked but not touching the surface of the moon. Its even making a shadow below it. Sure 25 miles is huge, but sitting in the shadows of the moon can easily go unnoticed by anyone astronomers.”
