The Mother Ship: Why The Moon Is Not Made Of Cheese

So you know the moon’s just a hollowed-out planetoid alien spaceship, right?

Well: if you believe the USSR equivalent of the Reader’s Digest, it is, anyway.

And one would also have to believe the two contributors, Michael Vasin and Alexander Shcherbakov, who were eminent members of the then Soviet Academy of Sciences in July 1970 when they published their Spaceship Moon Theory in Sputnik, the magazine published by Soviet Press Agency Novosti.

You can read the text here. It makes extraordinary reading.

The gist of it is this: they posit that once upon a time, huge machines were used by a technologically advanced alien race to melt rock and create cavities in the moon. The magma created spewed out onto the moon’s surface, creating a rocky outer layer. And then, for some reason known only within the giant crania of the aliens themselves, they put this masterpiece in orbit round the Earth.

The evidence cited by the two scientists is rocky. Look at the metals found in the rock, they said. these are tough industrial metals: chromium, titanium and zirconium. They are refractory, mechanically strong and anti-corrosive. And some moon rocks are older than anything found on earth.

And those craters. Their shape troubled the pair. they were too shallow to have been created by a meteor or other natural occurrence, the scientists elaborated.

I look up at the moon and I smile indulgently and say to myself: No, I don’t think so.

But that was before I learnt that their spaceships are blue and yellow.

It hit the Scottish news yesterday: a plane approaching Glasgow Airport on December 2 last year had the strangest thing happen. The pilot of an Airbus 320 was flying along, minding his own business, when a large yellow and blue object passed clearly about 300 ft below the aircraft. The guys in the cockpit said it all happened so fast that by the time they registered it it had gone: but the risk of that thing hitting the airbus had been high.

So high, indeed, that the conversation recorded in the cockpit reveals the team were adamant they would report the near miss to the UK Airprox Board, the airspace governors.

Yet here’s the thing: Air Traffic Control down below did not register a thing. Not a dickie bird: though the radar at Prestwick did spot an “unidentified track history” 1.3 nautical miles east of the A320’s position 28 seconds earlier, the BBC reports.

Airprox investigated what the explanations could be. And they admit themselves baffled. “Members were unable to reach a conclusion as to a likely candidate for the conflicting aircraft” the report concludes.

The object was blue or yellow in colour with a ‘small frontal area’. beyond that, in the split second of perception possible, the pilot could not say.

So, was it a little reconnaissance from The Mother Ship?

Better hie over to Moscow and start asking some questions.

  1. Maybe they had recently read Neznaika on the Moon by Nikolay Nosov. He was a Russian author who wrote for children. This book was written in 1965 and featured a hollow moon. Or maybe they read H.G. Wells – The First Men in the Moon.

  2. A child of the 1950’s, I’m exercising “duck and cover” under my desk, just in case, though I’m now sure the moon is made of cheese as that UFO was surely a very large chunk of blue cheese!

    1. I’d say ones like this get picked up becaus eof the whole proximity thing. The others…well, if I were a pilot I’d not be admitting to seeing any extra terrestrials…

  3. Any reason offered for the 5-month delay in reporting this strange sighting? If the blue and yellow UFO flies so f-a-s-t . . . just imagine all the places it’s been during the interim.

    1. Good old fashioned British bureaucracy, I imagine, Nancy….the incident had to come before Airprox and I believe it was the Airprox hearing where journalists heard the story. If I read it right.

  4. A new phenomenon enters the UFO literature – a UTH! I would like to have a definition of a ‘track history’ other than that of Roger Bannister and Co.

    I thought the composition of the moon had been established quite satisfactorily as a specific dairy product from Wensleydale? 😕

  5. I can hear the Twilight Zone theme song playing in my head right now…

    On a side note, I have to say you impress me with the number of posts you publish and the amount of research you do. I’m lucky to manage one post a week. Kudos to you!

  6. Wild story, Kate! Too bad there wasn’t some way for that flight crew to have photographed whatever it was that was in such a hurry to get to wherever it was going.

  7. We see chemtrails in the sky so routinely that I’m inclined to hold to the “anything is possible” theory. Of course, Southern Californians aren’t routinely held up examples of superior intelligence. 🙂

  8. The Russian interpretation of the moon and its cratered appearance is not really any more wild than the volcanic theories propounded in Sir Robert Ball’s The Story of The Heavens – the first astronomical book aimed truly at the ordinary person rather than the scientist.

    As for near misses… ATC “Be aware that the Red Arrows will be passing close to your position, below and to your left”… Pilot “They did – 5 minutes ago…”

    I once saw a fast moving object in west Wales below me and travelling very fast and low along a valley. It clearly wasn’t a standard aircraft (not a Hawk, Jaguar or a Tornado) and my suspicion is that it was a drone although the MOD weren’t admitting to the existence of such vehicles at the time – I was around 30 miles to the east of Aberporth at the time and (if memory serves me) at around 4000 ft.
