THE "APOLLO 20": AN AMERICAN-SOVIET CLASSIFIED MISSION FOR AN ABANDONED ALIEN SHIP ON THE MOON?




RELEASED CONTROVERSIAL FOOTAGE ON YOUTUBE: LEAK OF INFORMATION OR SKILFULL FAKE?


by Luca Scantamburlo


UPDATING: ALIEN SPACESHIP'S COORDINATES ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE MOON

I've done a mistake in providing the Moon region coordinates of the cigar-shaped object: according to the dialogues between the Apollo 20 crew from the LM-15 and the Vandenberg AFB, the exact coordinates of the presumed alien spaceship on the backside of the Moon would be the following: Nose: 17.3 deg S, 117.62 deg E ; Cockpit: 17.25 deg S, 117.62 deg E; see the subtitles of the <<ALIEN SPACESHIP ON THE MOON flyover bef. landing APOLLO 20>>, video footage posted on YouTube on May 4, 2007, by William Rutledge (user name: retiredafb).

L. Scantamburlo, June 14, 2007
 


A recent controversial footage of about 6 minutes (which seems a digital transfer from a film, and that we can call the ?Apollo 20 footage?) released on YouTube is causing amazement inside the ufological public on the Web, all around the world. The footage would be the presumed shooting realized during a NASA classified mission, in the ?70s: the ?Apollo 20? mission or, as it is suggested by the subtitles of the dialogues between the crew and the Mission Control, the ?Vandenberg 20?. I remember to everybody that the last official landing mission on the Moon was the ?Apollo 17? (NASA), which took place in December 1972, and that the Apollo 20 mission was cancelled by NASA in 1970. For sure, if the footage is not a hoax or a fake, the purpose of that mission would have been to shoot close to a mysterious object for understanding its origin. And, maybe, to organize a secret retrieval if possibile.

  But the presumed footage of ?Apollo 20? is not the only material which came out in the last days: it was also released by someone a presumed studio for the flyover of the assumed alien spaceship (available on YouTube a socalled preflight study for Apollo 20). And moreover on YouTube we have also several shots of the strange object on the backside of the Moon (whose numbers would be AS20-1020, AS20-1022 and AS20-FWD-7250).

  Regarding the video, as introduction we have a sort of marking (with the presumed logo of the mission) and, as result of a former recording on the tape, just a second of another marking about a video of the Apollo 11 Mission. So, if the first seconds seem not to be reliable but strongly contradictory, the following part of the video looks like interesting, well done and cohering with an old space hand-made shooting  during a flyover of the Moon. Anyway, the video is an editing of at least two scenes, both of them apparently taken flying over the surface of the Moon.

  According to the file-card of the YouTube user (?retiredafb?) who uploaded the controversial footages and shots (a man of 76 years old who lives in Rwanda),  ?Apollo 20 went to the moon august 16 1976. Destination was Iszak D, southwest of Delporte Crater, farside of the moon. The mission was soviet-american. Crew was William Rutledge CDR, former of bell laboratories, leona snyder CSP bell laboratories, and alexei leonov, soviet cosmonaut former "apollo soyouz" (mission one year earlier).?

But the most interesting information are about the presumed alien ship:

  <<[?] the ship were very old, age has been estimated 1.5 billion of years. Meteorit impacts, and dust/hills coverings testified that. Note that the ship has already been explored before the first human expedition reached the lunar singularity.>>

Is this man an American or Soviet former technician, who worked as insider during the 70s on Space classified missions and that now lives in Africa? Even the ?Apollo 20 the legacy part 1 The City? is a very interesting and evocative footage. There is also the presumed lift off of the Apollo 20.

  I am not a photographer; neither an expert of special effects nor an informatics technician. So I am not in the position to say something about the features of the footage. But what it is very interesting is that there is really a strange object on the Moon, and its shape is very close to that one showed in the video: I am talking about the object visible in a couple of NASA pictures taken by the Apollo 15 mission. The cigar-shaped object looks like leant beside a crater, lightly oblique; we can argue this because the unidentified object casts a shadow on the surface. And the visible zone in the footage is very similar to the visible region in some originals NASA photos taken by Apollo 15: the Moon region coordinates where there is the unusual object are the following: Latitude: 10 S - Longitude:  117.5 E, Southwest of Delporte and North of Izsak. I have checked on a Lunar chart: it is on the backside of the Moon.

  The official NASA photos are available by the website of the Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI, in Houston), which is a <<research institute that provides support services to NASA and the planetary science community>>: the links to find the pictures (the AS15-P-9630 and the AS15-P-9625, from the the Apollo Image Atlas) are the following: 

  The pictures were taken in 1971 by Apollo 15, during the revolution number 38, from an altitude of 117 km. The two original photos have both the following features: Image Width:  45.24 inch - Image Height:  4.5 inch; Film Color:  black & white. If you pay attention to the center, move a little bit to the right and zoom the picture, you can see the mysterious object.

  Now we can ask ourself: do NASA classified missions really exist? Or did they exist in the past? The answer could be yes. First of all there are two sites for the launches of the Space Shuttles and of the spacecrafts generally: one is the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and the other one is the Vandenberg Air Force Base, in California.

  Moreover there are several witnesses and references: one given by Clark McClelland (ex NASA engineer) and another one given by Robert M. Collins, former USAF Captain. In Itay, for instance, I have found a very significant assertion made by two Italian university professors: Luigi Balis Crema and Antonio Castellani, both of them teachers at ?La Sapienza? Rome University, Faculty of Engineering. At page 71 of their brilliant essay ?L?esplorazione dello spazio?, which means ?The Space Exploration? and published in Italy in 1997 (Newton & Compton Publisher),  they write:

<<Infine nell?ultimo volo dell?anno il Discovery, con un equipaggio interamente militare, compie l?ultima missione ?segreta? per conto del ministero della difesa USA ponendo in orbita un satellite ?spia? di grandi dimensioni che riceve anche dei segnali laser da terra.>>

In the Italian text there is written that, regarding the 1992 year, the Shuttle Discovery made at the end of the year the <<last ?secret? mission>> for the DOD, with a <<military crew>>.

  About the two NASA pictures, authentic and showing the strange object, I made a short analysis using the Gimp software (version 2.2.10): my purpose was trying to give prominence to the edges of the huge object leant on the Moon surface.

  Apart from this controversial footage, it is undeniable that on that occasion in 1971, the Apollo 15 took pictures that showed a strange and cigar-shaped object, whatever it is. Somebody could object that a metallic artificial structure should appear different compared with a rocky surface. This is not the case, but the reflection of light on an ancient structure, maybe covered by dust raised in the past by impacts with asteroids and meteors, could be similar to that one of a rocky surface. Even if it is a strange huge piece of rock leant by a crater, on the backside of the Moon there are anyway many strange objects.

  Karl Wolfe, retired Sergeant with a top secret crypto clearance for the US Air Force (at Langley AFB in Virginia), witnessed about them during the NPC press conference occured in May 9, 2001, at Washington D.C.; the press conference was organized by dr. Steven Greer (Director of the Disclosure Project).

  In spite of he perhaps made a small mistake in recalling the exact year in which he faced Lunar Orbiter photos (the first Lunar Orbiter was launched in 1966, and Karl Wolfe talked about the year 1965; it is not possible; the last one, the 5th , was launched in 1967), Karl Wolfe spoke out in front of the journalists that an Airman Second Class told him at that time, by a photo laboratory at Langley: <<By the way, we've discovered a base on the backside of the Moon>>.

  After that, he showed to Wolfe photos taken by one of the Lunar Orbiter mission in which, according to Wolfe, there were structures half a mile in size. Some of them were buildings very tall, like towers; others were spherical and domed buildings, very large.
If somebody is skeptical and does not believe him, I suggest you to watch the outstanding documentary directed by Jose Escamilla: <<UFO. The Greatest Story Ever Denied.>> You will see some photos taken by the Clementine Mission, in which it is clear that some features were airsbrushed by NASA.
