A YouTube user first spotted the figure on Google Moon, which uses millions of images taken by NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbital Camera. Could it be a trick of light or a camera lens glitch? Tom Rose of the Examiner wrote: “But, if those explanations are ruled out, it still leaves the question of what this object is, since it appears to be rising a great distance from the surface of the moon.”
The Examiner drew a comparison between the object and a large statue in ancient Greece.
In January, another object was spotted on the moon that was thought to look like a spacecraft. It was L-shaped with what appeared to be seven lights dotting its edge.
