Despite there being no scientific evidence to support the notion that aliens live on the Moon, some conspiracy theorists are still convinced by the idea. And the latest image which supposedly shows a base on the surface of the Moon will do nothing to dampen enthusiasm of proponents of the alien-Moon theory. The image seems to show a large opening on the surface of the lunar satellite, partially covered by a large structure.
Prominent alien hunter Scott C Waring goes one step further and suggests the large structure in part base, part space ship.
Mr Waring wrote on the website ET Database: “The structure has 90 degree angles and you can also see its incredible thickness.
“This is a ship and a building combined. It wasn't designed for looking sporty or for battle, but instead appears to be made mostly for being a mobile home of sorts, able to move from planet to Moon at a whim.”
This is not the first time such a structure has been claimed to have 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 the 1970s.
They suspect findings such as this pyramid and other anomalies could be monuments built by an ancient alien civilisation similar to the pyramids and other structures on Earth.
Similar UFO hunters have found what they believe could be pyramids on Mars and other parts of the Moon.
One popular, but far-fetched, conspiracy theory claims our ancestors who built the pyramids were visited by superior aliens who helped them construct them.
However, sceptics and NASA say the pyramid 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 in patterns or textures such as a rock surface.
The supposed UFO or unidentified flying object was spotted over Thornton, Colorado, on April 13 this year. The UFO video was filmed and shared online by the Kuroda family who saw bizarre lights darting through a dense patch of clouds around sunset. In the video, an unusually bright source of light can be seen hovering in the sky. A woman’s voice in the video says the light “looked like two things” before it reappeared as “one thing”.
And a child can be heard yelling out: “Where are you going UFO?”
Since the Kuroda family shared the video on YouTube, popular conspiracy theorist Scott C Waring has confirmed its authenticity.
Sharing the clip on his website ETDatabase.com, Mr Waring argued the UFO is a prime example of alien spacecraft frequently seen in these part of the US.
The UFO expert said: “This sighting is 100 percent real and I am very excited I finally get a decent video of the Colorado UFOs.
“Famous for their white ball shape that changes shape and moves many times faster than a jet, changing directions suddenly.”
According to Mr Waring, the white balls of light are the most commonly seen type of UFO in the US Rockies.
These types of UFOs are fast moving and appear over the US on a nearly monthly basis.
The UFO expert also claimed they are most commonly seen around the time of sunset because the Sun lights them up like “roman candles.”
Mr Waring said: “Watch this video and listen to the father holding the camera while trying to keep the children around him cam.
“The family is talking about the UFO after seeing it fly into a cloud to hide.
“The UFO obviously sensed that it had been spotted because it stayed there for a few seconds, then decided to leave to a larger cloud.
“That’s when the family really got excited and everyone knew from its speed, colour and shape that it was an alien craft.”
Reports of glowing orbs or balls of light are frequently made all around the globe, and in particular in the US.
The National UFO Reporting Centre has collected seven reports of glowing lights on April 18 this year alone.
One of the reports from Virginia described a “large bright green orb with flashes of blue” appearing out of nowhere.
Another report, from South Carolina, described eight “red-orange spheres flying low at night”.
Nibiru, also known as Planet X or Wormwood, is a supposed wayward planet hellbent on destroying life on Earth as we know it. Doomsday preachers and conspiracy theorists who believe in Nibiru, bizarrely claim the planet orbits the Sun once every 3,600 years or so. Nibiru is said to be 10 times the size of Earth and its arrival will herald the start of the apocalypse. Despite assurances from the world’s leading scientific authorities and astronomers, many conspiracists still peddle the doomsday hoax.
In the past, Nibiru experts warned the rogue planet will arrive over Earth in December 2012, on September 23, 2017, and on April 23, 2018.
So far, Nibiru has failed to materialise on any of these dates and there is little to none evidence to say Planet X will ever show up.
An unearthed video clip recorded at the Los Angeles Public Library, on February 4, 2009, proves scientists have been battling the Planet X hoax for many years now.
The video shows renowned astrophysicist and TV presenter Neil deGrasse Tyson challenge an audience member over Nibiru.
In the video, Dr Tyson, who is the head of the Hayden Planetarium in New York City, said: “There is no such thing as Planet Nimburu or whatever they say.
“It’s just fiction and they cite sources that cite NASA sources, they don’t cite NASA.
“Check the websites and you’ll see and it’s all related to the doomsday predictions of the year 2012.
“Yes, that’s what you’re getting at, that what’s behind your question.”
The scientist went on to argue the reasons behind why so many people support unscientific doomsday scenarios, citing failings in schooling.
Dr Tyson blamed people “who didn’t’ take enough science at school” for spreading the Planet X theory and 2012 apocalypse hoaxes.
According to US space agency NASA, there is no credible evidence to support the claim a wayward planet is barreling towards the Earth now or in the future.
NASA’s scientist Dr David Morrison also said: “There is no credible evidence whatever for the existence of Nibiru.
“There are no pictures, no tracking, no astronomical observations.
"I can quite specifically say how we know Planet X or Nibiru does not exist and does not threaten the Earth.
"Firstly, if there was a planet headed into the inner solar system that was going to come close to the Earth, it would already be inside the orbit of Mars, it would be bright, it would be easily visible to the naked eye - if it was up there it would be easy to see it, all of us could see it."
And allowing the 2012 doomsday scare, NASA said the story of Nibiru has been around for years and is periodically “recycled” by conspiracy theorists.
And in a now-viral thread that Dan Fogelman, creator of “This is Us,” recently shared on Twitter about his friend and “Game of Thrones” superfan Alex Hanan, it seems that life imitates art.
“It was the stuff that really only happens in a movie,” Fogelman told HuffPost. “But on top of that, for Alex’s sheer larger-than-life personality to have willed the connection to happen … it made it all a little magical.”
In honor of the HBO hit show’s eighth and final season on Sunday, Fogelman tweeted about Hanan, whom he described as “handsome and charming as hell, with the best head of hair you’ve ever seen” and also “obsessed w Game of Thrones like no one you’ve ever known.”
Hanan loved to give away spoilers about the show, Fogelman told HuffPost.
“He would announce that he wasn’t going to tell you something, then tell you because he couldn’t help it,” he said.
Fogelman began his story by explaining that he and Hanan were meeting up to see Bruce Springsteen’s Broadway show about a year ago. Hanan got to the show early and called Fogelman while he was on his way over in a cab.
“…[Hanan] never listens to anyone so I just KNOW he’s going to go accost George R. Martin,” Fogelman wrote.
Ends up, Hanan did exactly that.
During the entire show, Fogelman said, Hanan fretted about whether to text Martin. Fogelman said he tried to discourage his friend because he didn’t think Martin would text back and Hanan would be disappointed.
Despite Fogelman’s best efforts, he said, Hanan did exactly what he wanted to do.
Fogelman said they showed up at the pizza place and that he was convinced Martin would ghost them, but thought, “At least it will be a funny story.” Plus, the pizza was bound to be good, since Martin is a huge NYC pizza fan.
But then … Martin and his “lovely wife” arrived, Fogelman recalled.
This is when Fogelman’s story took a somber turn.
“Alex had been having a tough year. He refused to wallow in it (or even admit it) but his health was failing,” Fogelman told HuffPost. “I think it was a real spark for him at a time when he needed one.”
Fogelman stressed how much the dinner meant to his friend.
“After the night with George, Alex occasionally texted with George,” Fogelman told HuffPost. “Nothing about his health — I don’t think George ever knew — just an occasional message here or there. George always wrote him back, never knowing Alex was sick.”
Fogelman said he learned an important lesson from that experience.
He ended his thread on a beautifully affecting note that honored his dear friend.
A mutual friend also provided photographic evidence of the encounter, which Fogelman retweeted.
Fogelman also noted to HuffPost that he kept in touch with Martin himself, and their interactions have had a lasting effect on him.
“George and I kept in contact. Not a lot, but I’d see him at awards shows a few times, or we’d exchange texts, and it was always such a treat for me,” he said. “Not just because he’s such an icon and invented my favorite characters on TV, but because hearing from him instantly reminds me of one of my favorite people ever, and one of the favorite nights of my life.”
Now, excuse us while we grab some tissues.
This story has been updated with additional comments from Fogelman.

Osundairo Bros Jussie's 'Attackers' Can't Land Acting Gigs But Abel's Landing Punches
4/22/2019 1:00 AM PDT
The men who allegedly "attacked" Jussie Smollett at his behest are feeling the pain in the aftermath of the whole debacle ... because their acting careers have taken a major blow.
Sources close to the Osundairo brothers -- Abel and Ola -- tell TMZ ... the 2 have come up empty trying to land an agent in the past several weeks. We're told they've reached out to about 10 of the top agencies in Chicago and none have been interested in signing them.
This especially hurts right now because it's pilot season in the TV biz, and actors like the bros can't even get auditions without an agent.
What's worse is Abel actually HAD signed with the Gray Talent Group about a month before his involvement in the Jussie drama became known, and got dropped shortly afterward.
The reason he was given, according to our sources, was generic and didn't mention the Smollett case ... but it was obvious. We're told the agency told Abel it couldn't provide him the opportunities he desired, adding ... "parting ways with talented actors like yourself is a difficult decision and not a direct reflection on your character or your abilities."
Unfortunately for the Osundairos ... their fitness biz has tapered off as well. Our sources say while it seemed to be booming about a month ago, many of their potential clients turned out to be feigning interest in getting in shape and were really looking to get details on Jussie's case.
Tonight at the Chicago Golden Gloves Finals — Abimbola “Abel” Osundairo overpowered his opponent from the start.
After the match he told me he’s just boxing for fun, training 5 days a week.
Tonight was all about his win; he didn’t want to discuss anything else. pic.twitter.com/BqnS9JItE9

The good news -- at least for Abel -- is his boxing career is on the rise. He followed up his win in the semifinals of the prestigious Chicago Golden Gloves Tournament last month by winning the whole damn amateur competition last Friday ... in the first round.
So, congrats on that at least.
A team of scientists from the UK, Germany and France suggested they could have downplayed the importance of surface ocean currents. Debris from the aircraft was carried to shore by the currents, known as Stokes drift. Analysis of objects washed ashore could have allowed the MH370 crash site to be located according to the study, published in the Journal of Operational Oceanography.
In total nine bits of debris from the stricken aircraft have washed up along western parts of the Indian Ocean.
However investigators failed to establish crucial information including how long they made landfall before being discovered, their exact buoyancy and how long they spent floating in coastal waters.
Lead investigator Dr Jonathan Durgadoo commented: "Ignoring Stokes drift in the simulations can lead to major errors, as we have demonstrated with the MH370 example.
“For any application where surface drift is studied, Stokes drift should be included to provide more precise tracking results."
Investigators had sought to calculate the path of the debris across the ocean, in order to find the crash site.
However they had insufficient information to do this effectively.
The study concluded that just five pieces of debris could allow a future crash site to be located, if enough details are recorded.
Dr Durgadoo added: “The different tracking approaches provide a robust methodology and enable an assessment of uncertainties.
“These can be minimised by simulating sufficient numbers of virtual objects."
“The exercise of estimating the surface drift of debris from MH370 has led to an improved preparedness for future applications.”
Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 went missing on March 2014 whilst flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
It had 227 passengers and 12 crew on board at the time.
The apocalypse is said to be a future destructive end-time scenario proposed in the Bible before the return of Jesus Christ. Described in the Book of Revelation, the final book of the New Testament, this doomsday event details the apparent final destruction of the world before the second coming. Christians believe they will then face divine judgement, where a decision is made whether they live for eternity in heaven or face the terrifying wrath of hell.
The event is believed to occur once the messianic prophecies quoted in the religious text are fulfilled.
However, during Louis Theroux’s BBC2 “Weird Weekend” series, Christian pastor Randy James claimed we are now living in the end times.
Mr James, who runs the GOTEL Ministry in Cleburne, Texas, US, is a former marine and revealed why he expects an imminent doomsday.
He said in 2000: “I expect him [Jesus Christ to return] constantly, momentarily.
“Right now I expect him.
“There is nothing that has to be fulfilled for him to return and save people like me and my wife.
“You will be left here on Earth because you are not born again.”
Mr James went on to reveal why he thought he would go to heaven and Mr Theroux may not.
He added: “We are going to be called up.
“The Bible says the dead in Christ will rise first – those who have died as believers
“Their bodies will be raised from the graves.
“They will have a new body and come up out of that grave – fitted for eternity."
While Mr James claimed he expected an imminent doomsday, he could not explain what he thought would happen.
He continued: “Nothing else has to happen, in prophecy for the Lord to call up his Church – it has all been done.
“I don’t question it, it is God’s plan.
“In an instance, in the twinkling of an eye, the trumpets shall sound and the dead in Christ shall rise.
“You will know, it’s going to be very different.”
The claim comes after archaeologists believed they uncovered the true identity of the Devil discussed in the Bible.
In chapter 13, the Number of the Beast – 666 – is described as an antagonistic creature that appears briefly about two-thirds into the apocalyptic vision.
Since then, 666 has become one of the most widely recognised symbols of the Devil and is used to invoke Satan.
However, the numerical value may have a secret hidden meaning, revealing the true identity of the Devil, it has been claimed.
She said in 2017: “There’s been a lot of debate about what this number, in particular, 666, refers to.
“There is a strong argument to be made for 666 referring to Nero – the emperor of Rome from 54 to 68AD.
“When you apply numerical values to the name Kaiser Neron and you add them up, you come to 666."
A miracle is an event that does not fit natural or scientific laws, which may seem almost supernatural. What happened to Alcides Moreno on December 7, 2007, certainly seems to fit that bill. The Ecuadorian, 49, fell from the 47th floor while cleaning the windows of the Solow Tower building in Manhattan's Upper East side of New York City, US.
Mr Moreno revealed during Morgan Freeman’s “The Story of God” series how the terrifying ordeal played out.
He said in 2017: “I woke up in the morning took my car in and commuted from New Jersey.
“I got to the building and took the elevator all the way to the top – 47 storeys – and then climb onto the platform.
“We just began to lower the platform when one of the cables snapped.
“I just grabbed the scaffold and held on until another cable snapped.”
Mr Moreno then plunged 472ft, surviving only thanks to the platform he was working on getting lodged against a neighbouring building.
He added: “The paramedics, they found me right in the middle, the scaffold snapped in half and was lodged between the two buildings.
“It was right in the middle, they picked me up from there and took me to the hospital.
“I didn’t wake up from a coma until December 24, right there in the bed and my wife was there.
“I was [eventually] able to walk and everything, the doctor told me ‘you are a miracle’”.
During the incident, Mr Moreno broke 10 bones, his lungs collapsed and he needed 43 pints of blood and plasma.
Only half the people who fall from three storeys survive and from ten storeys almost no one does.
However, Mr Moreno is not convinced what happened was a miracle, as his brother – Edgar – who was on the platform with him, did not survive.
He continued: “I still don’t know [what I think happened].
“My brother is a big loss, we were really, really close.
“That was a great man, I just wanted to bring him to work with me to help him out because he was younger than me and a good man.
“I think God saved me, but I want to ask him ‘why me? What happened? Why?’ Maybe it was a second chance to keep going.
“I am looking forward to finding out why.”
An investigation into the accident found that the scaffolding had not been properly maintained and that new motorised cables, which attached the window washing platform to the building, had not been properly anchored to the roof.
Accident investigators also concluded that although Alcides Moreno had stepped on to the scaffold without wearing a safety harness, this did not prove that he had refused to use it.
Since he had also not yet retrieved his window washing equipment from the roof they said that he might still have intended to go back and put on the harness before starting work.
Mr Moreno received a substantial compensation payout and he and his family moved to Phoenix, Arizona, US.
He says the warm weather there is good for his bones.
