Are there men on the moon?

We've been teaching our children about the man in the moon through nursery rhymes for years, but perhaps we should have been looking for men on the moon instead.

One internet user believes he has stumbled on an image taken by Nasa that depicts a humanoid figure standing on the surface of our neighbour in the Milky Way, which even appears to cast a shadow on the grey rock.

The individual Wowforreel had been looking at pictures through Google Moon – which is just like Google Earth, but obviously shows pictures of the moon instead – when he noticed the anomaly and decided to post his findings to YouTube.

You can check it out for yourself on the video sharing site like two million other people have done in the past month – or on Google Moon at 27°34'26.35"N 19°36'4.75"W.

"At first I thought maybe it was something drawn into the picture but after going to Google Moon, whatever it is or isn’t … uh, is there," Wowforreel told UFO Sighting Daily.

It's not the first time he has alerted the world to unusual activity on the moon – in January, he posted pictures of what he said could be a secret alien base or spaceship.

Nasa has yet to comment on the discoveries, although it has said it doesn't plan to send anything or anyone back to the lunar surface until at least 2015.

Meanwhile, experts have thrown a dampener on the suggestions by saying this is likely to be a case of Pareidolia – the psychological response to seeing faces and other significant and everyday items in random stimulus, which comes about because of our need to make patterns and connections in what we see.

Who knows, though – it was 45 years in July since Apollo 11 sent men to the moon for the first time, so perhaps some of our alien neighbours are doing that too!

This week also heralded the arrival of August's 'supermoon', something that could have made things – or creatures – on the moon's surface more obvious.

To chat with us about interplanetary craft, just give one of our psychics a call.
