ALIEN enthusiasts believe they have found the elusive evidence of extraterrestrials after spotting what they believe is a series of bases on the Moon.
Earth’s Moon might look dull and lifeless to the naked eye but some conspiracy theorists remain adamant aliens could reside there. And the latest image which supposedly shows a base on the surface of the Moon will do nothing to dampen the enthusiasm of proponents of the alien-Moon theory.
Many alien hunters are adamant extraterrestrials are developing mysterious technology on the Moon.
Some now believe they have hit the jackpot by discovering NASA photos from the Apollo 15 mission in 1971 supposedly showing a series of bases on the lunar surface.
Alien hunters have been prowling through NASA images and stumbled on the odd-looking building, which resembles a small city.
By analysing the images, UFO enthusiasts believe the structure is about half-a-kilometre long – and the sighting has sparked some out-there theories.
According to keen UFO hunter Scott C Waring, this equates to evidence of aliens on the lunar surface.
Mr Waring wrote on his blog ET Database: “I was looking in the old Apollo 15 mission photos when I came across this huge structure.
“The building is about half a km long and looks like a recently used base. I say recently used because the other structures near it are 90 percent covered in a thick layer of moon dust.
“The other structures are also white, but only a faint outline is visible of them.
“I can make out about ten other semi visible structures in these photos, but it does take a lot of experience to get your eyes use to focusing on the right details.
This is not the first time a mysterious structure has been found on the lunar surface.”
Some conspiracy theorists claim the Moon could be occupied by aliens and that is the reason NASA has not returned since the Apollo missions ended in 1972.
They suspect findings such as this supposed base and other anomalies could be monuments built by an ancient alien civilisation similar to the pyramids and other structures on Earth.

However, sceptics and NASA say the structure and other similar findings are just the effects of pareidolia – a psychological phenomenon when the brain tricks the eyes into seeing familiar objects or shapes where they do not exist.
NASA said: “Pareidolia is the psychological phenomenon where people see recognizable shapes in clouds, rock formations, or otherwise unrelated objects or data.
“There are many examples of this phenomenon on Earth and in space.”
