Hi Lan, All,

Has anyone mentioned the possibility that the bright object in
the photograph may be 'intra-atmospheric' and nowhere near the
surface of the moon at all? Bruce already made mention that even
rough calculations based on 'apparent' size, (assuming the
object is on the moon) puts the size at 'around' 100 miles in
diameter. Whatever the phenomena is, it would rapidly assume
more plausible dimensions if it was within the atmosphere when

Based on size alone, if the object/phenomena was close to the
moon, some unknown astronomical phenomena seems likely to be
responsible. That is, unless ET can built craft that is 100
miles in diameter. If the phenom is located inside the
atmosphere then we're looking at a whole other set of problems
in terms of making any identification.

Just a thought.
