Quite a few people spotted and shared this story, but frankly, I probably would have blogged about it anyway even if it was only one person who saw it and shared it. When I saw what it was about, it vaulted straight into the "finals" folder right way, no need to wait for my normal "Sunday email sort-and-blog" routine, for it immediately conjured all sorts of high octane speculations. But before we get to those, first, the story itself:
'Mystery rocket' that crashed into the Moon baffles NASA scientists
Note what is being claimed in the article:
NASA has discovered the crash site of a "mystery rocket body" that collided with the Moon's surface earlier this year. The impact left behind a widespread "double crater," meaning it wasn't the average rocket.
However, since its crash landing, none of Earth's space-exploring nations have claimed responsibility for the mysterious projectile, leaving NASA scientists baffled as to who was behind its launch. New images shared on June 24 by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter show the unusual impact site.
Astronomers anticipated the crash after spotting the unidentified rocket on a collision course with the Moon late last year. It finally hit on March 4 near the Hertzsprung crater, a "complex" impact crater on the far side of the Moon.
Needless to say, we're all probably thinking more or less the same things, but just for the sake of setting down my two major high octane speculations for the record, we can divide the possibilities for the origin of the mysterious "moon rocket" (if rocket it actually was... note that the article is long on assertion and short on telemetry data) into two basic categories: terrestrial origin, and extra-terrestrial origin.
The "terrestrial origin" category can be further sub-divided into two basic possibilities: (a) a covert launch by one of the space-faring powers for whatever purpose, or (b) a covert launch by some other terrestrial organization, i.e., a corporation, paramilitary group, intelligence agency or "cartel", a criminal organization, &c. Obviously, if it was any of these two possibilities, we're faced with a large problem: how can its origin be unknown? Any launch of a rocket large enough to reach the moon from Earth would most likely be detected by at least the USSA or Russia, not to mention the other nations with major spy satellite capability such as France, Japan, Germany, or the UK. About the only place to conduct such a covert launch would be Antarctica, and this would require either a power with access and a permanent presence on that continent, and a covert launch facility, or a very powerful and limited circle of corporations with a presence on the continent, such as Lockheed-Martian (thank you for that one Catherine Austin Fitts).
Even after a launch, the ring of satellites around the earth would presumably have detected the rocket during its burn phase... and this brings us to our first problem: assuming the crashed craft was a rocket with a standard rocket signature, how does it get launched, and go undetected from the burn/boost phase? Answer: either they're lying and it was detected, or someone is able to launch rockets from the earth without being detected. One can imagine the national security analysists' nightmares the last scenario must project.
If it's a "someone" on this planet and not one of the major space faring powers, then who it it? Musk? Branson? Some sort of international fascist organization like SPECTRE....er... I mean, World Economic Form? And if the latter, and they can launch rockets without detection, what else are they capable of "without detection"?
Then there's possibility number two: an extra-terrestrial origin. I must admit that when I read the article, I also could not get Morris Jessup, Carlos Allende, and certain remarks of Richard C. Hoagland many years ago out of my mind. Jessup was, of course, the astronomer who also wrote the early 1950s Ufology classic, The Case for the UFO, a copy of which was bought, read and copiously marked with various colored pens by Carlos Allende, who sent his marked up copy to Jessup. Jessup read the strange notations, and promptly forwarded the marked up edition to the US Navy's intelligence, which in turn thought the annotated version of Jessup's book worth a special edition. Accordingly it contacted the Varo Publishing Company in Garland Texas, which printed the book with annotations in a short run, and distributed the book throughout the US military and intelligence community. In my own research for Secrets of the Unified Field, I note that Dr. Wernher von Braun was probably one of the recipients of the Varo edition on Jessup's book with Allende's notations.
Now why am I going "around Harvey's Barn" about the Varo edition? Because in his annotations, Allende refers to a very ancient cosmic war, in which "asteroids" were used by "the gods" to bombard planets in the solar system, an act which Allende calls "the great bombardment." The idea of using "mass drivers" for bombardments of mass destruction is not new. In fiction, there is Robert Heinlein's The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, and of course for Babylon Five fans like me, there's the Centauri bombardment of the Narn homeworld with mass drivers. In non-fiction, there have been studies since the 1960s of "rods of god," kinetic weapons launched from satellites to the earth's surface.
Years ago, Richard C. Hoagland pointed out, during one of his public speaking engagements wherein he discussed lunar anomalies, the phenomenon of "double craters" that dot the lunar surface, often in a regularly linear pattern, i.e., the phenomenon of double craters was artificially produced, as if the Moon had been targeted for some sort of bombardment.
And now, we have another double crater that was not there before, which NASA says was left by a "rocket" whose origins it does not know, but whose trajectory they have been tracking... of course, one can assume that the trajectory was no dramatically altered, and "run it backwards" to plot a presumed source of origin.
Why won't NASA say if they know?
Well, the final possibility is, of course, that an extra-terrestrial narrative is being deliberately suggested, not by explicit mention, but by suggestive "leading" and careful omission...
Or perhaps, indeed, Allende's gods are back, and sending a little reminder message of their capabilities...
See you on the flip side...
Color me skeptical.
I wonder if ( or how ) all this Moon rocket striking affects the Earth’s trajectory and climate…
Maybe there is a Shadow War underway in Space – between the Earth and the Moon (perhaps between the USA and an ET civilization – like there is on Earth between Israel and Iran?
I still stand by my previous postings over the years to Joseph on GDS that the Moon is already colonised by an ET civilization under the surface in the many Swiss cheese holes, caves and caverns.
A possibility it was from Earth is if it was a test of a nonchemical rocket propulsion system I thinking of a laser-propelled spacecraft from the 1990s.
By this time in the Psycho Pandemic who would believe any information put out by any governmental agency that has any affiliation (what so ever) with the USG?
Billy Bob is right on!
Nothing with this government is on the up and up…
No data, just a narrative to suggest to the reader what to think? Doesn’t seem on the up and up to me.
It was a CCP missile mishap landing of construction supplies for Chinese restaurants up there.
Apparently, they’ve staked claim to the entire thing.
This is strange. NASA sees this rocket on a collision course with the moon late last year and impact does not occur until March 4? Apollo 12 mission duration to the moon and back was just over 10 days. That is one slow boat to China. The little rocket that could. Huffing and puffing all the way to the moon. NASA has over two months to track this rocket’s trajectory and they can’t (won’t) tell us where this rocket came from? Where it was located when first spotted by NORAD, NSA, NASA, or any other US agency? Did this rocket slow down once it escaped earth orbit? Are both craters impact craters, or is one a blast crater? Did we not have satellite footage of the crash? Impact on the moon? Because if we see something on a collision course with the moon, you would think we might want to see what it does on arrival. If it is such a mystery rocket and all. Unknown rockets not being an everyday thing. Maybe it was carrying a payload that landed on the moon, or a satellite that is now in lunar orbit? And we get a photo of the crash taken on June 24? Three and a half months after the March 4 impact? NASA probably figured out the rocket’s lunar ETA back in December. This story has more holes than a moon made of Swiss cheese.
Precisely my points… the story is, if true, asking us to swallow a lot.
Mooning Earth News has reported a “mystery crash” of a “mystery rocket” on the Moon.
Was there a crash? Was there a rocket? I mean it comes from “Mooning Earth News”[NASA]?
Looks like “they’re” doubling down on the agreed upon narrative; all the way from the double crash site to the mystery rocket to creating a storyline for the mushroom Earthlings to describing NASA scientists as “baffled”[scientists NASA, an oxymoron to be sure(jumbo shrimp, military intelligence, or customer service/in the algorithmic 20th-Worst Century]
The only certainty, w/what I terming “Mooning Earth News”, is that when it comes to the press:
a double cross, is a given.
How do we know it was a rocket?
Again, precisely my point about the absence of any data in the article that would suggest it is.
Who could know my experimental new rocket fuel and rocket design would go that far, LOL. However slight a possibility, it could be from an amateur rocket enthusiast, LOL.
Khazarian movie moguls are wagging the dog, with an old shoe, to deflect attention, away from the box-office bomb in the Ukraine, because the movie “Return of Khazaria” isn’t selling tickets, and is being canceled because of empty theaters.
Movie-goers are voting with feet, by vacating theater seat, because gender swap is dead meat, according to grassroots drumbeat.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s:
The key to this mystery is the double impact crater that the object created as it crashed into the Moon.
Amateur astronomers first pointed the finger at SpaceX, but then recalculated that it was likely to be from a 2014 Chinese lunar mission (Chang’e 5-T1) which went to the Far Side of the Moon to explore and collect samples with its lunar rover – Jade Rabbit 3. The mission consisted of 4 parts – Orbiter, Lander, Ascender and Returner. China has contested this, saying that the booster in question had “safely entered the Earth’s atmosphere and was completely incinerated”.
The double impact crater was created by an object that had heavy mass at each end.
The debris field of used space vehicles is expanding. Which of course will require additional expenditures on space and lunar reconnaissance and methods to counter the potential threat. It is also easier to sabotage a competitor’s lunar foothold if bombardments can be disguised as unintentional trajectories or consequences of evasive maneuvers.
