A UFO expert spotted a massive alien base in one of NASA’s images of the Moon. The UFO speculated that private space companies such as Elon Musk’s SpaceX and Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin could take over the base and turn it into their own lunar mining facility.

Self-proclaimed UFO expert Scott Waring of ET Data Base discovered the alleged alien base through Google Earth, which features NASA photos of the lunar surface.

While scanning through images of the Moon, Waring came across a huge structure-like object sitting on a lunar crater known as De Moraes. He estimated that the structure could be more than 15 kilometers long.

Based on the images provided by Waring, a portion of the structure seemed to have a large dome for a roof. His followers on YouTube speculated that it could be a mobile drilling machine used by aliens or a massive ventilation system for an underground facility or city.

Since it seems there isn’t any sign of activity around the structure, its previous owners or inhabitants may have already abandoned it. Despite this, Waring believes that whatever the structure is, it could still be operational.

The UFO expert noted that space agencies can use the structure as their own outpost on the Moon. Given its large size, it can even be used as the main location for a human colony on the lunar surface.

Since Waring strongly believes that NASA intentionally covers up evidence of extraterrestrial life, it probably won’t use the lunar structure for a human settlement since doing so will go against its stance regarding the existence of aliens.

Instead, Waring thinks that private companies such as SpaceX and Blue Origin will be the ones that will spearhead operations on exploring the facility. Once the companies have examined the structure and assessed it to be safe, Waring noted that they could begin converting it into a settlement for humans.

Through a human settlement, Waring believes companies can use the massive structure as a lunar mining facility. Aside from the resources they’ll be able to collect, they’ll also have access to the alien technology present in the facility.
