Quick Follow-Up on Hoagland’s Lunar Ziggurat

Just a quick mention that I have created a video version of my debunking of Hoagland’s alleged ziggurat on the Moon. It’s up now on YouTube in HD resolution, if not quality (YouTube compression and all that).

This is my first published foray into video editions of stuff related to my podcast, so let me know what you think. And, FYI, those 4.5 minutes took me about 3-4 hours to put together.



  1. That was good and succinct. Made the point well.

    I think the only thing that could have made it better was to be able to find the source for the building that was added to the original photo. Though I suspect that could be very difficult.

    I imagine an hour of work for each minute produced is probably at the lower end of the ratio for some videos.

    Either way, I appreciated your effort.

    • Thanks Limey! I had initially thought that the video would be shorter, and it would have been just over 3 minutes if I left out the title sequence and the actual Hoagland clip. Title sequence took around 90 minutes to render, but I was working on other parts during that time.

      An hour of work per minute produced is at the low end? Sigh … I’d kinda hoped to make more of these. They’re kinda fun, I think, and do illustrate the point better than a blog post since it’s really images we’re talking about.

  2. Thanks for all your hard work. I was actually listening to the coast to coast your talking about and between fits of laughter I couldn’t help but think you would be on the case, you didn’t disappoint. Just another Hoagland hoax dismantled by science.

  3. I am a new listener and it looks like my timing couldn’t be better. The podcast is great and your foray into video was very interesting and well produced. Thank you for taking the time to put together such a great resource.
