Apollo 20 - Pseudo Spaceship - Localization

TOPICS:

  • Pointed localization as Ruler to help the interpretation and localization of the "spaceship's" sorrounding area.

  • Coordinates of focused area where the "object" is located

  • Relevant Craters that sorround the "object"

  • Moon Atlas - Localization

AREA MARKED AS RULER TO EASILY LOCATE THE ALLEGED SPACESHIP:

 

This is an area south to the Far Side of the moon, the side that one cannot see. Its pointed north-east of Mare Australe and It references the localization of the controversial "object".  The trapezoid (blue triangule vertexes plus small yellow circle's vertex) is the key to measure the ruler as a reference.

 

The big yellow circle is like a ruler to find the precise localization of the presumed spaceship. 

Inside the small yellow circle on the left there's a red circle pointing the phenomena.

the blue triangle gives a reference to understand better the localization of the phenomena on other views and perspectives

huge red circle - FERMI crater.

other red circles - craters: DELPORTE / LUTKE / DIDEROT

RELEVANT CRATERS THAT SORROUND THE "OBJECT":



 

Latitude and Longitude for relevant craters - Image took from Lunar and Planetary Institute - Apollo Image Atlas.

The search engine of Apollo Image Atlas also goes for feature names (HERE).

 

Lunar and Planetary Institute - Digital Lunar Orbiter Photographic Atlas of the Moon. Photo Number I-136-M.  

Again, marked inside the yellow ruller is the key (trapezoid) to the localization of the controversial phenomena. This is the zoom of the same area. The Latitude goes between 10º and 30º south (-) and the Longitude goes between 110º and 120º East (-). These coordinates are much more generic and better for a more extensive search. Keep following the yellow circle:

Here you can see A large blue circle refering to Mare Australe. Northeast of it's arrow there's the yellow circle, pointing to the coordinates of the "object".

 
COORDINATES TO THE AREA OF THE "SPACESHIP"

 

  • latitude: 19,5º South to 18,5º South

  • longitude: 116,5º East to 117,5º East

  • North and West could be represented by plus (+)

  • South and East could be represented by minus (-)

  • NOTE: It seems the sign atributions (-,+) to cardinal directions is not totally consensual. So for example, in one place you could find East associated to (-) in another to (+) and etc. Lunar and Planetary Institute coordinate search engine is using the system above

Schematized ruler. Humongous map by Lunar and Planetary Institute. Here

  • latitude: 18,5º South to 18,9º South

  • longitude: 117,2º East to 117,4º East

  • North and West could be represented by plus (+)

  • South and East could be represented by minus (-)

  • NOTE: It seems the sign atributions (-,+) to cardinal directions is not totally consensual. So for example, in one place you could find East associated to (-) in another to (+) and etc. Lunar and Planetary Institute coordinate search engine is using the system above

 

So, if you want to insert the coordinates should be something like this:

 

I sugest when you use a searching coordinate system like the Apollo Image Atlas coordinate search engine BY Lunar and Planetary Institute (here) you rather use more including and generic coordinates - tends to increase the probabilities of finding what is specific - as exemplified on the example above.
