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.… Read the rest
