On February 13, 2014 a full moon glowed eerily in the night sky. Armed with his HD camera, an amateur astronomer was determined to get a closer look.
A deep zoom revealed the intricacy of the moon’s landscape. But it also revealed something unintended: an illuminated stretch of land in the southwest quadrant.
The unknown mass is large, and flashes conspicuously. It appears multicolored in an otherwise grayscale frame.
The videographer continued to film the moon in a variety of shots, yet the anomaly consistently prevailed.
Does this illuminated area show evidence of untold life? Perhaps the moon is more habitable than we were originally lead to believe.
