ALIEN hunters believe they have spotted a UFO floating over the surface of the Moon in what is an equally extraordinary and bizarre claim.
UFO researchers have long looked at the Moon for signs of advanced aliens – despite numerous missions there highlighting it is void of life. Nonetheless, conspiracy theorists remain undeterred, and the latest sighting comes in the form of a giant UFO hovering over the surface of the Moon. Prominent alien hunter Scott C Waring made the latest claim, stating it is evidence aliens are living on the lunar surface.
Mr Waring wrote on his blog ET Database: “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.
“Absolute proof that aliens not only exist, but have massive ships on our moon.”
However, on closer inspection, the object in question is clearly a rock or a crater, casting a shadow in a way which makes it appear as if it is floating.
Some conspiracy theorists claim the Moon could be occupied by aliens and say 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.
UFO hunters have long claimed the Moon is awash with extraterrestrial activity, and some believe NASA knows all about the alien presence.
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 recognisable shapes in clouds, rock formations, or otherwise unrelated objects or data.
“There are many examples of this phenomenon on Earth and in space.”

Mr Waring has argued that humanity has the strength to deal with such a shocking alien revelation if NASA were to admit it.
He said: “Much like COVID-19 did to the people in each country as it spread, because the public once believed that such a pandemic would be impossible, and yet, the human race has changed their perspective on that very fast.
“That’s how disclosure of intelligent aliens would be, but it would not kill people or frighten them as much.”
