Image Scientist Analyses Video of Three “Very Large” Objects Seen Flying Around The Moon

Could be real, could be fake. An interesting analysis within the article.

Who is this Image scientist? His name is Mark Carlotto. He has nearly 40 years of experience in satellite and digital image processing. He studied optics, signal, and image processing at Carnegie-Mellon University from 1972-1981, where he received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering. He’s held several positions within academia and industry, and currently works in the aerospace industry. Over the years he’s published work in a number of peer-reviewed journals and written more than 100 technical papers. You can take a look at some of his publications here if interested.

What Happened

A video (below) posted on YouTube in late March of 2020 shows what appear to be three, according to Carlotto, “very large” unidentified objects flying around the moon. The objects rise up over the limb of the moon, fly across the lunar surface and disappear into the moon’s shadow. The video was taken by a French-Canadian amateur astronomer named Jean-Michel Tenac using a telescope. Only a couple of media outlets covered the story, I have not been able to verify who Tenac is. The original video, which you can see below was uploaded to his YouTube channel.

According to Carlotto, who published a paper using simple mathematics to analyse the objects, “The objects are estimated to be between 5 and 15 miles in length and roughly 1 to 3 miles in width, and appear to be moving in speeds in excess of 30 miles/sec/ between 5 and 10 miles above the lunar surface.” Carlotto notes that, “What is immediately evident is that the objects in the video are large and close enough to the moon to be able to cast noticeable shadows.” His paper attempts to answer four key questions. How close are these objects to the moon? How large are they? How fast are they moving? What are they?

He concludes by stating, “Ultimately, it is impossible to prove that this (or any other) video of this nature is authentic. However, if these objects are real, they are between 5 and 15 miles in length and roughly 1 to 3 miles in width, and appear to be moving in speeds in excess of 30 miles/sec. between 5 and 10 miles above the lunar surface.” The first video comes from Tanec, it’s the original YouTube Upload, below that you will find the video analysis Carlotto uploaded.

Final Thoughts

As I mentioned earlier, there are more than enough “credible” pieces of evidence to share regarding the UFO phenomenon, but again, I believe it’s important to share a variety given the fact that many “amateur” pieces may indeed be real. It is no doubt hard to tell these days, the video above could very well be a fake. It’s so easy to manufacture a fake video these days that you can never really tell what’s real. This video cannot be debunked, yet it can’t be said to be completely authentic either.

Carlotto no doubt has an interest in the moon, and space anomalies in general. He co-authored a study published in the Journal Space Exploration in 2016 providing an in depth analysis of images taken from Apollo 15 as well as the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. According to the authors, there appears to be “two unusual features in the crater Paracelsus C on the far side of the moon,” the side that is never visible from Earth. By combining multiple images it becomes clear to them that what they are looking at are two walls “on either side of a narrow valley or passageway.” You can read more about that story here.

These topics, and the UFO topic in particular have the potential to expand human consciousness, and open the collective mind up to concepts of our reality that we have yet to acknowledge. I say it in many UFO articles I write, it truly leaves no aspect of humanity untouched.
