MILLINOCKET, Maine, May 31, 2015 – In 1976 George Leonard published his book “Someone Else is on the Moon,” in which he made a bold statement: “… the Moon is occupied by an intelligent race or races which probably moved in from outside the solar system.”
He made this assumption after poring over thousands of NASA photographs and finding what he considered to be evidence of non-earthling habitation on the moon. He identifies structures and machinery that, to his mind, could only have been purposely assembled.
Original copies of “Someone Else is on the Moon” are rare and pricey, so in 2013 Ross Marshall published a reprint of Leonard’s book retitled “Somebody Else is on the Moon.”
Marshall takes a somewhat tongue-in-cheek approach to Leonard’s work, but faithfully reproduces the original material. If nothing else, it has a sizeable collection of early NASA photos, and whether or not you buy the premise, the book makes for interesting reading.
But Leonard and Marshall are but two of the many people who have been enchanted by the anomalies of the moon.
Since the telescope was invented, numerous observers have seen lights in the dark parts of the moon, luminous straight lines, triangular light formations, geometric shapes in or near craters, even smoke on the moon’s surface.
Books, plays, songs, poems and movies have been inspired by the allure and enigma of the moon.
For eons to come we can expect that the moon will continue to spark the creative spirit of mankind.
