Conspiracies surrounding the moon have swelled ever since Neil Armstrong stepped foot on the lunar surface on July 21, 1969.
There are those that believe the moon landing was faked, pointing to various footage as “proof”.
But others have claimed bizarre anomalies have been spotted in the region which could, they claim, suggest humans weren’t the first to the moon.
Ahead of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, Daily Star Online can reveal what have been described the “clearest ever” videos of UFOs appearing on Earth’s natural satellite.
Black object ’takes off from moon’ – October 2018
Back in October, an amateur astronomer was astounded to capture what appeared to be a black circular object lifting off from the moon’s surface.
The UFO then turned and bolted off at another angle.
“This is the clearest video you are going to see of a UFO,” narrator Moonshot23 exclaimed in the footage.
“We have a slow-moving one right there.
“And it turns, we’ve got a UFO.”
Viewers were quick to comment their thoughts, with some saying aliens “must be hiding on the moon” and another pointing out that “satellites do not act like that”.
But others were more sceptical, suggesting the video was simply showing a bird.
Mystery craft ‘leaves moon in best evidence’ – November 2018
Renowned alien enthusiast group Mutual UFO Network posted another baffling video just a month after Moonshot23’s clip.
It showed a bright white light hovering off the surface of the light side of the moon.
As the footage continued, the mysterious object appeared to flash brighter.
Behind the camera, a man was unable to hide his astonishment and could be heard gasping: “What the hell is that?”
The hard-hitting clip from the Mutual UFO Network gained more than 70,000 times and conspirators praised the footage as some of the most compelling evidence for life on the moon in recent years.
Just like October’s footage, viewers flocked in to label the footage “the best clear evidence to date of leaving the moon”.
White object hailed ‘best UFO footage ever’ – December 2018
Not to be outdone, YouTube conspiracy theorist mavi777 posted footage in December 2018 of a mysterious object hurtling across the surface of the moon.
In the video, a small white object appeared to burst from a crater on the lunar surface.
It then shot from left to right before disappearing from view.
Hundreds of people viewed the footage, with mavi777 himself labelling it “the best UFO footage of all time”.
Another viewer agreed, adding: “This is the best moon UFO video that I’ve seen.”
‘Fleet of UFOs’ pass moon – May 2019
It is not always singular objects that are seen across Earth’s natural satellite.
In May this year, footage emerged appearing to show numerous black objects flying in unison past the moon.
At certain points, the dots moved toward each other before separating again.
YouTube user Fotohota couldn’t believe what he was witnessing and noted that they were moving between the Earth and the moon.
Viewers quickly flocked to the comments section, with many unable to debunk the footage.
“Definitely the best evidence of the year,” one wrote.
“Curious to see how they will debunk this video.”
