From a lunar base to alien spaceships, the dark secrets hidden in the moon's surface have long been a source of fascination for conspiracy theorists.
Now one YouTube user believes he has made the ultimate find on images from Google Moon - an alien figure lurking in the satellite’s deep craters.
Wowforreel's video shows what he says could be an alien figure walking along the surface and it has already been viewed more than two million times in less than a month.
However, the most likely explanation for the sighting is a psychological phenomenon called Pareidolia, which is the brain's response to seeing faces and other significant objects in random stimulus.
The strange shape can also be seen on Google Moon at 27°34’26.35?N 19°36’4.75?W.
Tom Rose, a paranormal explainer, wrote in the Examiner the figure bears an uncanny resemblance to what the ancient statue, 'The Colossus of Rhodes', is thought to have looked like before it was felled a massive earthquake in 226 BC.
Wowforreel said he started investigating the shadow after receiving an online tip from another web user named Jasenko.
