LUNAR COORDINATES OF THE ALIEN SPACESHIP AND
FEATURE OF THE FERMI WALLED PLANE





THE LM-15 FLYOVER SPREAD BY W. RUTLEDGE SHOWS ALMOST CERTAINLY THE FERMI WALLED PLANE, CLOSE TO THE IZSAK CRATER

THE LM-15 FLYOVER AND THE FAR SIDE OF THE MOON

   What can we understand about the astonishing footage of the presumed LM-15 flyover before descent on "Izsak D", spread on YouTube by William Rutledge on May 4, 2007? Is there any congruence between the visible details shown in the video footage and any lunar map of the far side of the Moon? For example, are recognizable the Fermi's details, or is recognizable any particular belonging to the lunar zone of the backside of the Moon, near the Izsak crater? In the comment posted by W. Rutledge ("retiredafb") on YouTube, we can read:
<<[...] LM passes over Tsiolkovski, Fermi, Delporte and Lukte before passing on the Izsak Y crater. [...] CDR communicates the South -East coordinates of the major parts of the spaceship, approximately 4 kilometers long.>>


  A friend of mine from New York City pointed out months ago that, first of all, it would be a good result understanding if the LM-15 flyover really took place on the far side of the Moon, and moreover if there is any other video footage from NASA space missions which shows those surface details of the Moon.

  What I have found is that there are some congruences if we compare the details shown in the frames of the LM-15 flyover footage, with an official lunar map available on the Lunar and Planetary Institute: the i_136_m.jpg picture which shows clearly the lunar details mentioned by William Rutledge: we have the Tsiolkovsky crater, the Lutke crater, and we can see the Delporte and the Izsak craters. Of course, it is visible also the large lunar crater by the name of Fermi, close to all the others and which belongs to the category named a walled plain.

 SOME FEATURES OF THE FERMI WALLED PLANE SEEM RECOGNIZABLE IN THE PRESUMED LM-15 FLYOVER

   The Fermi walled plane has a diameter of about 183 km. During the presumed LM-15 flyover, the CDR (Commander) of the crew <<[...] communicates the South -East coordinates of the major parts of the spaceship, approximately 4 kilometers long. Color distortions are caused by the rotating wheel inside the Westinghouse Color TV Camera.>> 

  What I asked to myself was if the there were something of recognizable. I watched very carefully the video footage entitled <<ALIEN SPACESHIP ON THE MOON flyover bef. landing APOLLO 20>>. The video footage lasts 5 minutes and 53 seconds. At a certain point I could recognize what, in my opinion, is the western border of the Fermi crater (a walled plane). It seems that the direction of the LM-15 is from Northeast to Southwest. As a matter of fact, when you watch the footage you should recognize the details of the western Fermi rocky border, high on the left of the screen, approximately after 2 minutes and 30 seconds from the beginning. The subititles of the footage which would be the radio communications between the Vandenberg AFB and the LM-15, say: 

  << [...] Izsak is visible on the upper left side of the window [...]>>, a statement from the astronauts which is coherent with their position, with their route and with the features of the lunar surface visible during the flyover.  

  In a former point of the footage in the subtitles of the dialogues among the CDR and the Vandenberg AFB, we can read:
  <<We passed over Tsiolkovsky, and we are over Fermi now [...]>>

  Again, it is a statement coherent with the fact that the two astronauts inside the LM-15 (W. Rutledge and A. Leonov) should be able to see on the lunar horizon the Izsak crater, on the upper left side of the window of their spacecraft. Now we can pay attention to the frames of the video footage. So, it is enough to take a couple of snapshots of the video footage, and rotating of 90° to the left. You will have, for example, the following frame: ILL.3.

  First of all, with a free software (the Gimp software, version 2.2.10) we can delete the information of the colours; we can get the following image: ILL.4.

  And then we can change the brightness contrast of the picture:

  Now, we can compare our little work with a detail of thei_136_m.jpg (changed in contrast), from the Lunar and Planetary Institute

  Even if the lunar zone is the same, because the shot equipment is different as well the date, the Sun position, the altitude of the spacecracft from which the shot was taken, it is obvious that we cannot have the same image results. 
  But it is very interesting that we can still recognize some paths in both pictures.  So, almost certainly, we can say that at least the first minutes of the flyover are a really flyover of the backside of the Moon, over the Fermi walled plane and just close to the Izsak crater.

  If you can consult the excellent photographic book Full Moon by Michael Light (© 1999 Jonathan Cape, Random House, London, © 1999 Michael Light), you can find a very important essay on the Moon by Andrew Chaikin (1950).
  Dr. Andrew Chaikin was a former JPL scientist and he is author of the important book A Man on the Moon (1994). Chaikin in his essay talks about the astronaut's descriptions of the lunar surface, giving prominence to the fact that the lunar surface colours change very much under different conditions of light.

  LUNAR COORDINATES OF THE ALIEN SPACESHIP ARE CONSISTENT WITH THE POSITION OF THE STRANGE OBJECT VISIBLE IN OFFICIAL NASA PICTURES

  William Rutledge revealed that one target of the mission was landing by "Izsak D". I could not find any reference to that presumed particular Moon structure mentioned by him. I can suppose it is a Moon detail very close to the Izsak crater, and named like that by some space specialists involved in classified missions. But what about the the South -East coordinates of the major parts of the spaceship? Can we get any information from the coordinates provided by William Rutledge, Apollo 20 CDR?
  The subtitles of the footage report the following data about the spaceship position: for the spaceship nose we have 17.3 deg S and 117.62 deg E, and for the spaceship cockpit we have 17.25 deg S and 117.62 deg E. So, it means that the presumed alien spacecraft is leant by the North-South axis, because what changes is the lunar latitude, while the lunar longitude of the two parts of the spaceship does not change. Moreover, the data tell us that the nose should be to the North of the cockpit.

  Now we can search for if there is any congruence among those data and the real position of the strange object visible on the official pictures taken by Apollo 15 and Apollo 17; strange and huge object that would be, according the story by W. Rutledge, an ancient and abandoned alien spaceship on the Moon. According to the index of the lunar charts of the The Atlas of the Universe (© 1970-1981, Mitchell Beazley Ltd London, Italian edition Cosmo, Istituto Geografico De Agostini, 1985) the Izsak crater has the following coordinatese: latitude -23 Deg, longitude + 117 Deg, where the sign + means North, and the sign - means South.

THE ALIEN SPACECRAFT'S POSITION REGARDS AS THE IZSAK CRATER AND "IZSAK D"

  William Rutledge in his comments on YouTube gave us some information about "Izsak D" (where the alien spaceship was): it is to Southwest of Delporte Crater. If you combine that information with the following: <<DELPORTE, SOUTHWEST OF IZSAK, NORTH OF>> (from the AS15-P-9630 data,  Apollo Image Atlas, NASA/LPI), we can understand that the spaceship is to North of Izsak, because in that NASA picture the presumed alien spacecraft is visible. Again, Rutledge's information are coherent with the position of the huge object visible in the official NASA pictures (taken from Apollo 15-17 missions). But for having the right position of the NASA picture as regards the lunar coordinates (latitute and longitude), we have to rotate of 90° to the left one of the NASA images of that lunar zone. If, for instance, we choose the AS15-M-1333 picture, we can get the following perspective: the illustration number 5 (ILL.5).

 I think that the operation is correct because I have compared the result to the already discussed i_136_m.jpg picture (from the Lunar and Planetary Institute)  which shows clearly the lunar details mentioned by William Rutledge (Delporte, Fermi, Izsak, ect...) If you pay attention, you can recognize the form of the Izsak crater, and its position regards as the strange and huge object leant on the lunar surface, not visible in the i_136_m.jpg image but visible in the photos taken by Apollo 15-17 crews.

    After all that I strongly believe the Apollo 20 mission revealed by the presumed William Rutledge, deserves the maxim attention of the scientific community, because its implications could broaden the mankind's horizons in every dimension, and also could reappraise the political and religious ideologies which have been still bringing on suffering and death on the Earth.

UPDATING - August, 5, 2007

NOSE AND COCKPIT OF THE PRESUMED ALIEN SPACESHIP 


  For example, the Delporte crater is to the North of the Izsak crater: and in fact the Delporte's latitude is about -16° (16 deg S), when the Izsak's latitude is about -23° (23 deg S), which makes perfectly sense. So, it seems there is a contradiction in the subititles. Were the subtitles made by mistake, inverting the data because of too much hurry in typing? 

  W. Rutledge told us in the interview that some people (not him) made them in a hurry. So, it is possible a mistake. It is also true that everything depends on what portion of the object you consider as nose and what you consider as cockpit. 


OTHER CONTRADICTIONS IN THE FOOTAGES

  A gentleman from USA, Mr. Charles Gilbert Wright, wrote me at the end of June because he found out that there is another contradiction that I had not noticed. He gave me his kind written permission to mention him: his discovery is analogous to that one I did about the audio coming from Apollo 11 lift-off, and put together to the presumed Apollo 20 lift-off (Vandenberg AFB, August 1976).

  The short audio that we can hear watching the video named <<Apollo 20 legacy part 1 The City>>www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbncnnygZwk, uploaded by retiredafb  on April 07, 2007 and that would be "Apollo 20 MET 140 22 29 the unscheduled trasmission rover TV" by the Station One, it comes from a radio communication of the Apollo 15 mission; you can check on the following link:


www.hq.nasa.gov/alsj/a15/a15.lrvload.html


where at a certain point they say:

121:05:30 Allen: <<Presto chango; there's the TV.>>

121:05:36 Scott: <<Oh, beautiful, I'm glad to hear that.>>

  It is just the audio, not the video, which is probably what W. Rutledge claims. But again, why there is an audio contamination? In my opinion it does not invalidate entirely his testimony. For example, if we give a look to the presumed <<APOLLO 20 ALIEN SPACESHIP ON THE MOON CSM FLYOVER>> video of the capsule interior, provided on YouTube by "retiredafb"  on June 24, 2007, we can see that it was shot in a zero-gravity environment. We can argue that looking at the white straps sticking straight out, as one friend of mine pointed out. From the video that gravity is having no effect on the straps.

  On the other hand, somebody could argue that the presumed Apollo capsule is in a museum. But in this case, who gave the permission to film such a fake? And why, if nobody is getting money from that?
  The Apollo 20 case is still open. I hope the Rutledge’s outstanding footages are a real effort of disclosure, in spite of there is something of controversial and contradictory.
If Apollo 19-20 missions took place indeed, other people involved could speak out for the advantage of the mankind.

THE IZSAK AND "IZSAK D" LUNAR CRATERS


 
I have almost for sure localized the "Izsak D" crater, the target for the landing of the LM-15 of the presumed Apollo 20 mission (August 1976). At the beginning I was a little confused, because on a lunar map the Iszak crater looks like the other crater near the huge and mysterious cigar-shaped object leant on the lunar surface, on the backside of the Moon. The name of the Izsak crater comes from Imre Gyula Izsák(Zalaegerszeg, Hungary, 1929 - Paris, 1965), a Hungarian-American astronomer expert of celestial mechanics.

  The Izsak crater has the following features:


Latitude: -23.3°
Longitude: 117.1°
Diameter: 30 KM

Source:
astrogeology.usgs.gov
www.lpi.usra.edu

But what about the "Izsak D"? But the "Izsak D" crater is not counted in the public lunar maps.

  When we consider the official NASA picture AS15-P-9625 (taken on Apollo 15, 1971) where the curious object is visible, the Izsak crater is not shown, but on the other hand the crater in the middle of the picture is not explained or commented by NASA. That picture, which shows the portion of lunar surface indicated by the lunar map (9625), has the following details: Southwest of Delporte, North of Izsak; Latitude / Longitude: 19° S / 117.5° E.

  If we compare that picture to the detail of the same zone of the lunar map available on the Lunar and Planetary Institute, we can see the Izsak crater is out of the borders of the picture. 
  So, it means that the "Izsak D" crater Mr. William Rutledge is reffering to, is probably the crater at the center of the AS15-P-9625 image.

   Moreover, that consideration is enough coherent with the presumed dimensions of the spaceship (about 4 km long) and its dimensions and position regards as the Izsak crater, which is to the South.
