Spaceflight Revolution was the first of five unmanned Lunar Orbiter missions sent to map the majority of the moon's surface and scout locations for the forthcoming Apollo missions. This image, taken by the Kodak photo system on Lunar Orbiter 1, was first published by Sky and Telescope Magazine 1966. The project was led by NASA, and the aerospace photographic laboratory of the Boeing Co. Seattle Washington. The work was produced by extracting the film developed from Spaceflight Revolution, consisting of 60+ strips of 35-mm high speed negative film, each segment cut 16 inches long, and then edge-matched to create the resulting film array. The negative has not been retouched in any way. The final composited film array produced a 16 x 44 inch image that was called "the picture of the century' and "the greatest shot taken since the invention of photography.”. My father brought a copy of this print home when I was around eight years old. He was very proud of this work and described that he “put film together to make the photo”. I could only see what appeared to be three seams visible on the framed print. At this age, and understanding, I had no idea what the true significance of what his role was and what he did with this project. The Moon print hung on my family’s den wall for over 45 years - long after his passing, and it was often the first subject of conversation whenever someone entered the room. This story has a couple layers of evolution beyond the original framed print coming home in 1966, 1) the process of scanning and reproducing prints for my family, then 2) years later the discovery of intelligent made geometric structural objects, colony or base type structures that are scattered across the landscape. These details are only visible and apparent by careful and critical examination of the image at very high magnification. Some structures stand out clearly, and others are more challenging to see. Even after studying the image numerous times, more objects still seem to reveal themselves. This is undeniable truth that the moon has been inhabited all along - Truth hidden in plain sight. As an illustrator, creative and graphics professional, I began scanning and reproducing family estate photos and paintings for my family 20+ years ago to pass images of family heirlooms on to future generations. In 2009, my mother asked about scanning the Earth-moon print. I removed the print from the frame and discovered it to be a special four page foldout special reprint produced by Sky and Telescope magazine. The backside of the reprint contains the story of why and how the shot was made and how print was produced. I later acquired an original copy of the same Sky and Telescope Magazine Issue and discovered that the foldout featured in the magazine is NOT the same as what my father brought home. Our version is what I have learned is a special reprint that was given out to government VIPs, dignitaries, and project members. In my initial examination of the print after removal from the frame, I discovered the two seams I had easily observed as a kid was simply the folds in the reprint. I scanned the image at high resolution, 1000 pixels per inch and carefully processed the image for reproduction. My focus was to simply reproduce the image in its original state and at this time I still had not yet realized the real magnitude of what my father did in creating the image. My realization of what was done came during the first test print output on a large format printer. During processing, I sat down and read the article of the backside of the print. It described the process of edge-matching the strips of film. As I prepared a test print (just a narrow strip of the print) I saw the film edges, then recalled the words my father had told me describing what he did – I now realized the full impact of what he did for the project. The hair on my arm stood up - wow. Note, I still had no reason or thought to zoom into the image to examine details on the moon’s surface for the possibility of life or occupation on the planet. I was just impressed realizing that my father did in creating the image. So I produced a number of prints for family and my files were put away and went into archive. Fast forward several years, I have always had a special interest since childhood in UFO and ET phenomena, ancient sites on earth and other planets etc. and in recent years my desire to learn more and research the many subjects of hidden knowledge has increased dramatically. I started frequenting related websites and YouTube video content and came across some image downloads of the Lunar Orbiter and other projects with claims of the existence of alien structures on the surface of the Moon and Mars. I thought immediately of dad’s print. So I pulled the files out of archive and this started the second layer of evolution to my story. Zooming into the file digitally I started finding countless unusual patterns and geometric details of unnatural looking lunar terrain. Then realizing I never had a reason to sharpen details of this image, I decided to duplicate the file and start a process of enhancements to the image. I applied a series of value curve enhancements to improve highlights, midpoints and shadow areas, then applied advanced sharpening techniques. This revealed even more patterns and structures that were previously undetectable visually – the numbers are astounding. Now think about the fact that this image was taken in 1966 - 52 years ago. New testimony tells that some areas of the backside of the moon looks Manhattan NY in the number of building and structures. Discoveries and what to look for Here is a list of things I have noticed: craters that look different from the rest; they look newer or like excavations, with more defined edges, lighter in value; there are large craters that have what look like built up ground, roadways or pathways running through the middle of the crater for-which to operate and move heavy equipment; there are geometric buildings, clusters of buildings, odd looking structures (not naturally formed); structures that look like they were made to appear natural but are not, actually being compounds that are just under the surface and the only visible clues are that there are patterns that a critical or trained eye can pick up; some objects and structures appear damaged, objects that look like it could spacecraft, one in particular looks like very large craft lying inside a large crater (there are detailed images on the internet that may be this object, remains of a past ancient galactic battle. I understand there are many objects from this battle that were left as monuments to remind all races to never allow this type of war to be repeated; a strange elongated snake looking object raising up out of a crater; behind this a tower with a ball at the top; off on the horizon there a what look like huge complexes, some towering above the surface, there are transparent looking structures difficult to see; In my search for photos from the Lunar Orbiter program and others, I have not found many images that provide quite as much detail over such a large surface area. The Orbiter program mapped the moon in detail so shots must have been in existence with amazing detail of these structures and bases. If anyone reading this article has knowledge or links to more high resolution imagery available, please contact me and share them. Most versions you will find of this famous NASA photo, has been faithfully retouched and “enhanced” by our trusted souls at NASA to rid the prying publics’ eyes of all those unsightly and unnecessary details that existed on the original image … Who needs to see that old insignificant crap anyway? Screw the public’s right to know, RIGHT? So with that thought, I have decided to share this image as a whole and as an array grid of details for the viewers’ collective benefit. Eventually I will be uploading this to a dedicated site. It is my hope that this view of the photo from Spaceflight Revolution, Lunar Orbiter 1, brings some awareness and confirmation of truth to those new to this subject and enjoyment and appreciation to those who have known these truths all along. When I look up at the sky and the moon I see it all in a whole new light, and the term “Revolution” brings on a whole new meaning. Seek the Truth, and Be the Love and the Light of our One Infinite Creator.

    Spaceflight Revolution, Lunar Orbiter 1, August 23, 1966

    Spaceflight Revolution was the first of five unmanned Lunar Orbiter missions sent to map the majority of the moon's surface and scout locations for the forthcoming Apollo missions. This image, taken by the Kodak photo system on Lunar Orbiter 1, was first published by Sky and Telescope Magazine 1966.

    So with that thought, I have decided to share this image as a whole and as an array grid of details for the viewers’ collective benefit. Initially, I may have to limit the number of details to a smaller number due to the shear number of files and file size constraints of the system. Eventually I will be uploading this to a dedicated site. It is my hope that this new view of an old antiquated photo from Spaceflight Revolution, Lunar Orbiter 1, brings awareness and confirmation of truth to those new to this subject and enjoyment and appreciation to those who have known all along.

    “Revolution” brings on a whole new meaning.
