on the Moon
I have to tell you from the beginning that I am somewhat
prejudiced about the subject of Dark Mission: The Secret
History of NASA, the new book by Richard C. Hoagland and
Michael Bara. My own investigation of the high strangeness
that exists on the lunar surface began in 1992 and dovetails
with Hoagland's search for answers.
In the mid-sixties, before the Apollo missions, NASA compiled
a report of astronomers from the past who had witnessed
anomalous activity on the surface of the moon through their
telescopes. Titled R-277 and found here, each page of this
report is filled with weirdness. Flashing lights, moving
objects, even clouds are seen on the moon by astronomers
as famous as Messier, Herschel, and Bianchini. These compiled
reports go all the way back to 1540.
My own interest in the moon initially came from the moon
symbol on the Cross of Hendaye mentioned in Fulcanelli's
mysterious book Mysteries of the Cathedrals. I vowed to
myself in 1986 that I would examine every facet of this
mysterious monument rightly believing that it held many
answers to the mysteries of our world. Through the course
of my initial investigation I discovered the aforementioned
NASA document. After reading it I knew that something odd
was on the moon.
I first interviewed Richard C. Hoagland on my public radio
show "Mind Over Matters" in 1992. At the time
he had been combing through many NASA photographs which
showed the weird anomalies that are apparently all over
the moon's surface. We spent many hours examining these
photographs and discussing the implications involved with
their discovery. The conclusion that we reached was that
NASA had found something of such importance that it had
to be covered up. It could be one of the greatest discoveries
of all time. But what were they? How had they been built?
And by whom? These were the questions that vexed us all
those years ago. I watched as Hoagland developed a brilliant
theory that explains most of the curious things that Apollo
found on the moon.
In Dark Mission we get Hoagland's blow by blow account
of NASA's discovery and subsequent cover up of this most
astonishing find. This book courageously reveals the unexplainable
anomalies that have been found all over the lunar surface.
Well written and exciting, Hoagland and Bara have made
an important contribution.
Isaac Asimov once said that the weirdest object in
the universe is the moon. He didn't know how right
Dark Mission successfully leads the reader down the rabbit
hole and into the labyrinth of evidence of humanity's
real past and the promise of our destiny.
In Stanley Kubrick's film, 2001: A Space Odyssey, NASA
discovers a mysterious black monolith, obviously intelligently
designed, buried a few feet beneath the lunar surface.
The monolith is a device left there millions of years
ago waiting to be discovered by us when we are finally
enough to find our way to the moon. According to Hoagland,
Stanley Kubrick's fable is the real history of NASA.
It is probably just a strange coincidence that Kubrick
was making his film during the same years that NASA was
planning and executing the Apollo missions.
Or maybe not.
If one comes away from Dark Mission unconvinced all I
ask is that you look at the evidence for yourself. Ask
how there can be objects and refracting light sitting
above an airless lunar surface? Ask yourself why NASA
to explain this? Ask yourself why the Apollo 11 original
video tapes have mysteriously disappeared?
When the ships from Europe first arrived on the shores
of the Americas over 500 years ago the native people
didn't understand what they were seeing. It wasn't until
were taken aboard the ships by the Europeans that they
came to understand what the ships actually were. Because
they had no context, European technology seemed alien
and strange to them. When looking at the evidence of
lunar objects, try not to make the same mistake that
those Native Americans made so long ago. When looked
new eyes, one can only reach the conclusion that Hoagland
is right and there is something very strange about the
