UFO Hall Of Shame : Jose Escamilla : Moon Rising 2012

In the highly controversial documentary movie, UFO-The Greatest Story Ever Denied Part II - Moon Rising, filmmaker Jose Escamilla quotes an unnamed BellCom/NASA Insider speaking about the Apollo moon landings:

"we lied about everything".

We have to ask ourselves, is Jose Escamilla also lying?

After researching publicly available U.S. government documents online and Jose Escamilla's cited resources for his documentary movie. "UFO-The Greatest Story Ever Denied Part II - Moon Rising", I am convinced his claims of UFOs on the Moon are misguided in the extreme.

Jose Escamilla's claim is :- When the Moon is viewed using the NASA colorized images you can see UFOs roaming over the surface.

I hope to demonstrate that when these colors are removed what appear to be UFOs are in fact craters. This can be seen in figure (a) where a crater does indeed look like a UFO but of course it is just a crater. I know people will shout NASA cover up but the images used in the trailer are from NASA as well so what is it to be UFOs from NASA images OK? Or craters from NASA a cover-up?

Why should you care about this? Well, if you are UFO advocate, these claims by the filmmaker only hurt the genuine sightings and the general public support of the possibility of extraterrestrials.

The Controversial Documentary

"UFO-The Greatest Story Ever Denied Part II - Moon Rising"by Jose Escamilla is a documentary movie that focuses on his claim that the U.S. government has been deceiving the world regarding the presence of extraterrestrials on the moon. His film movie trailer also discusses the claim that the Apollo missions to the moon were faked.

The following are some of his assertions taken directly from the site containing Jose Escamilla's movie trailer.

"The Moon is presented in it's full "natural" color"..."This is the real color of the moon. This is the first time in human history we are seeing the moon in it's full natural colors."

It should be noted that these images of the Moon quoted above can be found on publicly accessible websites cited below. This information is not exclusive to this Movie.

His assertion regarding the true color of the moon is correct. Although it has to be said NASA has put the word "natural" in quotations. One might then question if the word "natural" is to be taken literally.

The narrator claims the UFOs are "shining light onto the lunar surface". No this is not light this is ejecta from when the surface of the moon is impacted releasing a large amount of energy, resulting in material being ejected. Eventually, a characteristic crater forms surrounded by a blanket of the ejected material.

"The only clear and detailed photography ever released of real flying saucers". (Narrator's words in the movie trailer)

Or it could be the first time in human history optical illusions of the Moon have ever been used to sell movie tickets and DVDs.

My Investigation

With a life-long interest in fair and unbiased science, I found the movie trailer and began taking notes so that I could conduct my own research. I utilized the same resources found on the internet that he used along with others easily found by a novice.

One thing that should be pointed out is I cropped the images so the focus was on the the two craters only. I looked at most of the alleged UFOS in the movie trailer around that area and they all displayed the same findings. Again for those that doubt this I have included the website address so they are able to research for themselves.

Both sets of images are under the control of NASA so I must assume they would have tampered with both the monochrome image as well as the color if tampering as suggested took place at all.

To the right you can see (Figure 1) from his website that will become the reference point for my investigation. The second image (FIgure 2) is the image I located utilizing the USGS Map-a-Planet site. There are numerous references in these photos to indicate these two photos are of the same lunar location. The name of the larger crater with the smaller inner ring is called KUNOWSKY (18Km) Named after the German Astromnomer George k Kunowsky 1786-1846 (so long before NASA's time) and the alleged UFO crater is called KUNOWSKY A The approximate center of KUNOWSKY A is Longitude 329.29 and Latitude 4.31. Both of these craters are visible from Earth.

Source ( http://www.lunarrepublic.com/atlas/sections/d2.shtml.)

In the movie trail, one can easily see the USGS Map-a-Planet Website being utilized. The photos Mr. Escamilla uses in his documentary ARE from the Clem-UVVIS Multispectral Mosaic Version since the image I found (Figure 2) is shown in this format and appears very similar. There are other versions available on the same menu on this website, including the Lunar Orbiter Mosaic. The third image (Figure 3) shown below is the identical image in Figure 2, but shown in the Lunar Orbiter Mosaic alternate mode.

It appears quite obvious in Figure 3 that the object being possibly considered a UFO by Mr. Escamilla in his trailer is actually just a crater. This leaves me with considerable doubts regarding the validity of the movie in its entirety. Draw your own conclusions.

I wrote to Jose Escamilla inviting him to comment on this Hub but he replied declining my offer.

You can make a comment below, and all are much appreciated.

Addendum : Since first writing this Hub almost a year ago I have obtained a copy of the full movie and have watched it many times. My original opinions are still valid.

Thanks to everyone at Disclose.tv and UFO Casebook, and many more forums for your support. Keep spreading the word!

How can you use airbrushed NASA photos as a baseline comparrison? Look at the B&W "crater" and you see the un-natural edge and shadowing.

GreyMoon profile image

GreyMoon 7 years ago Author

If you remove a filter it does not make a floating ufo crash and turn into a crater. If you study the smaller craters around that area they all have the same shadow pattern. The moon is a very big place to airbrush every spaceship and besides if they had how come they are still there in color. Thanks for your comment but please use your brain before writing one next time. Id go visit the site and look for yourself they are all craters I just chose that because it was in the trailer i couldn't possibly have included them all. Sorry one more thing what baseline as you put could I use they are both NASAS images. Perhap a Chinese one of Mars?

I have heard of allegations that the moon landings never happened. Wouldn't it be possible to point a telescope of sufficient power at the location where the landings took place, and that question will be settled once and for all? Perhaps there isn't such a powerful telescope?

Well, I'm biased. My dad was in the Space Program at White Sands Missile Range and had a TOP Secret Clearance with the Government, so did my mom and so did my brother. Not me, I keep no secrets.

I grew up knowing we landed on the moon and tho I'm not sure what lies have been told and there always are some....I do believe we've been there, not sure however if there were aliens. I know some strange things happen in space and are on many other films.

Everything isn't a conspiracy, but I love this topic and Kudos to your great research!! Certainly there are many liars on the Roswell Incident, and many other space expeditions...so hard to filter out the truth, eh? I love curious minds, and have one myself. Keep us informed, I'll go check out the links!! Great Hub!!

Hi GreyMoon. my mom typed up many reports on the aliens and UFOs that hovered around White Sands...details were secret but the incidents were pretty well accepted. I like to think I'm a reasonable person, and I know we had many wonderful late night conversations in our house about aliens...and I just can't think we're the only "us." You know, it's fact if its repeated..so science says...and I don't see how we can be here and not be a repeat somewhere. Surely -- in all that space....only one earth? naaa We've got brothers and sisters somewhere or we're just dreamin' and none of this is real. besides, hubbell just showed a lot of other earth like atmosphere's out there....so....and I believe Hubbell. =)) I'm an Xfile person from way back!!! =))

Im sure my sister thinks of me as kind of alien already :) I Saw a UFO once but I haven't spoke about it in years as everyone thinks your just making up stories. I am not saying it was alien but... well that's a hubpage perhaps. Remember 'the truth is out there'. Just not in Moon Rising lol

Everyone is trying to make a buck and the UFO deal has been a money maker for fifty years. I wrote a hub explaining my position on the existance of aliens and UFOs. I believe that it is very likely that they are other civilizations in the galaxy but it is also highly unlikey that we have seen any yet.

Listen GreyMoon whoever you are. It's okay by me you trying to debunk my film, BUT when you use my last name Escamilla and profile SCAM in my name you are making an insult to my family name who have nothing to do with my films. This is Libel based on your own assumptions and I want you to REMOVE that blasphemy on my family name immediately. I am contacting the Hub Pages legal department about this. I want you to be stopped from posting this kind of harrassment and defamatory remarks about me and my family name. YOU are not getting away with this. Send me your real name and address so I can have my attorney contact you. People like you need to know that when you harrass people like me it's not the best thing to do. Especially when you spam my family name like you are doing. I am not offended by your claims - this goes with the territory, BUT I am NOT going to allow you to defame the name of my family simply because you disagree with a few points I make in my films. When you attack my family name - there's hell to pay. JE

JustPassingBYE 6 years ago

Grey Moon: I like how you are the devils advocate and in this case, rightfully so! Be very careful though, I watched the entire film many times myself and if Jose is right on just one and only one of his claims that is presented out of many claims in Moon Rising, then you should be praising Jose for not only putting his life on the line to make this film a reality, but for giving you and all people the pleasure of watching Moon Rising absolutely FREE! While 99% of the world’s documentarians spend money to make money, Jose with Moon Rising spent money to share a most powerful Truth. NASA confirms water on the Moon and I believe the underlining message for Moon Rising is that there is life on the Moon. Its not a hard concept to grasp to say the least, Water=Life.

GreyMoon profile image

GreyMoon 6 years ago Author

@ JustPassingBYE

I am commenting on his claim of UFOs on the Moon, which are clearly craters. If he is correct on other statements in his movie that does not mean then by default his correct on the craters being UFOs and it is irrelevent to this hub. As for providing information for free. Moon rising is now free on Youtube, but LUNA is $3.99 per view, The reissued version of UFO The Greatest Story Ever Denied is $4.99 a view. Moon views are $3.99 per view. Finally his movie Interstella is $2.99 per view. So don't talk to me about him making movies out of the goodness of his heart and the ridiculous statement "putting his life on the line" How would you know this to be a fact? Did Jose tell you this, or is this just another Jose comment? Remember when Moon rising was originally released it was $3.99 per view and around $20 dollars to buy the DVD. Here are links to his Youtube channel for those that doubt this.


And the link to his new Youtube Channel.


And as a final comment to yours. Water is a major part of Organic life. But if you do your research a little better you would know the water found on the Moon is so frozen it is harder than steel. So I can not imagine Jose's One mile tall giant aliens living in that. Keep on passing by. Notice no E in by.

GreyMoon profile image

GreyMoon 6 years ago Author


Hardly a just passing comment. So what your trying to say is that every Crater is really a UFO but in a spectrum of light that can not normally be detected? And these UFOs stay in the exact same position year in year out. As to give Astronomers the impression that they are not static UFOs but impact craters. Of course it is so simple now you have explained it. All UFOs and no craters on the moon.

You a mentioned to me in your emails that Jose's "Rod"s are also in this IR/UV spectrum, but Jose and other people. around the world manage to capture them using standard video cameras and still cameras? Wow how incredible is that? And totally IMPOSSIBLE, with standard equipment.

I think there is a lot to be said with regard to " A little knowledge is a dangerous thing" When you can explain to me why Jose is using known craters in his movie and claiming they are UFOs then feel free to comment again. If they were images of UFOs that were not the exact same size and location of these craters then I would take his fiction a little more seriously. Thanks for the long comment. Keep passing by.

JustPassingBYE 6 years ago

RGB: Your right, Standard Cameras don't capture IR/UV and I never said that they do to begin with. Even though RODS stand out as sore thumbs in the IR/UV spectrum, if you use Jose's Sky Fish protocol which is what I orginally stated, that a Standard Camera can be modified and adjusted to capture these things the human eye naturally cant. You can argue with me about it all you guys want and try to find holes in my argument that you can turn into molehills if it makes you feel comfortable at the end of the day, but you will never know for sure unless you go out with your own camera and find out, and its free to do so if you own your camera so no excuse is necessary if you choose not to. If you think I am typing nonsense then don't worry about me, just here to watch all the crabs roll around in the barrel.

Actually on further reflection I guess I was totally wrong. I guess I am trying to get everyone to prove a negative. It really is up to me to show evidence, and not for everyone else to prove me wrong. Greymoon if I leave anymore comments just delete me as my medication does not always stop me having my delusions.

@Oda Kinnewsky yes but also research how the most sourced and quoted cases of UFOs in paintings and drawings have rational explanations.

Anyway, thanks for being a curious mind, we need more of those : ) Just take care about how you communicate your point, because at some point it seems like you were talking contemptuously; you don't know if while he were trying to explain it all his research was as valid as yours.

SkepticalGuy 5 years ago

I understand your argument against Jose's claim, but may I point out a serious mistake that you make with this presentation? You use a Lunar Orbiter image from the late 60's to falsify Jose's claims for UFOs on a Clementine image filmed in 1994. Both images are authentic and genuine NASA imagery which you agree to, but there are major inconsistencies as far as optics and technology with the 2 images in question that you must address if your entire argument hinges on the comparison of one B&W analog image to one full color digital image taken 30 years apart from each other from 2 separate NASA missions, which you didn't do with this presentation. You showed that the area in question is a crater which Jose doesn't deny, but you failed to prove what the hell is that huge white, bright anomaly covering the entire inside of the crater, because if it was just moon maria inside that crater as expected, it would be the same color as the surrounding area which is covered with the same exact maria. Regardless, your presentation doesn't falsify Jose's claims, but in a twisted way adds credence to Jose's UFO claim by showing that older B&W images weren't advance enough for their time in capturing Moon anomalies that appear on more recent color images.

The 3 videos I had up were flagged for "Hate Speech - based upon race." I appealed but Youtube ignored it. I lost my channel. Jose Escamilla is a censoring bastard who will shit on anyone who disagrees with him.

George Coburn 4 years ago

Your observations on the b&w compared to the color images is valid. However you seem dubious on the issue of NASA and other space agencies practice of editing imagery prior to release to the public. I can tell you that I have researched this for over 20 years, and it is real. You obviously have no reason to trust what I say, but what about the other claims Jose made in his films? Do you say those other findings are bunk as well, or have you researched them?

My problems with this entire matter is that we don't know what to trust from the baseline imagery, and yes they can get pretty much all of it. Certainly some leak through or we wouldn't have found the incredible anomalies we have.

We DID go to the moon, and yes we also faked footage and pictures. This was done as obfuscation and to cover what we really saw...

GreyMoon profile image

GreyMoon 4 years ago Author

@ George Coburn.

They probably do enhance some images. But the point here is Jose Escamilla uses NASA images. He would not have a mockumentary without them. So who do you believe is what it comes down to. Jose tells us he colors the moon in photoshop, and what else does he do to make his stuff more appealing to paying suckers?

The concept of rational thought seems to escape some people. I'm getting tired of the same old argument "We don't trust the government; therefore, Jose is right about giants on the moon." or "NASA lies, therefore the moon is hollow just like Jose said, even though there is zero evidence for this fantastic claim." They would rather believe a fantasy tale just because they think everything the government tells us are lies. Some people just don't get it.

You believe the government doesn't lie to us? Why over the past 100yrs haven't we come up with a cure for cancer then? When if you do some research you find that cancer cells can't sustain themselves in oxygen rich environments? Or even aids or HIV? We are that smart we can go in space and come up with some of the best inventions ever, but can't cure an "infection"ha please with the technologies and money present to the government I'm sure they've stumbled across a cure in all that time.. But think if cancer was as simple to treat and get rid of, they wouldn't be a multi million dollar business and that there is the reason the world continues to suffer for no reason.. Greed!

well after so many years this page still gets comments, just goes to show the interest for such matters. my comments however is to agree with greymoon over there, not because of the images and evidence he cited, nor even including Joses' documentary. But rather my own opinion and my rather twisted logic.

There arent UFO's or alien races living on the moon, my opinion. and why you ask ? simple, if there were, we would've seen them already. Now you got to keep up with my twisted logic here, for some reason people agree in general that alien species are more advanced than us, i posit its possible, but that they dont suffer from basic rivalry? incapable of having accidents ? that their advanced technology ascends them to some morally induced godhood ?

Seriously , why do people subliminally think that ? consider mere bee colonies for a minute , masterpieces of the "hive mind" mentality, yet queen bees habitually kill off their predecessors. cannot the same be said for every species on earth ? they all kill each other in their survival. why cannot that simple attribute be assigned to any non terrestial species ?

That's my twisted logic there sorta roundabout, could use more clarification, but the gist and heart of it is in there, no aliens on the moon, we would have seen something of their innate "animal" instinct to kill, to make mistakes, to subjugate, hell maybe just blow shit up lol

Fair day to you all then :)

OK, since opinions are accepted here, I'll add mine... I'm no physicist and I suspect physicists don't waste their time even watching Jose's movies because they are so ludicrous. I imagine though, that if I were a physicist I could easily determine the mass and therefore the gravity that would be exerted on the Earth by a "hollow" Moon. I'm also convinced that that would show the tides being quite different than they are as a result. Finally, I probably could find that info by searching the web, but why waste MY time?

the fact that we are not basing our space program on the moon - tons of oxygen in rock for fuel and less gravity working against lift offs- and the fact that we have not returned even to explore for commodities or create tourism is pretty much all the proof any one needs to see something does not want or need us there- and nasa knows that.

i understand you have done you're research towards this documentary. Although it seems as though you only watched half the documentary. i agree that they are craters and such. But in all fairness you didn't argue the rest of the documentary. You focused extremely on the fact of the ufo/crater objects on the moon. Please don't say you debunked something that is someone's opinion and their way of showing proof. rediculous that people do this debunk crap over someone who supposedly debunked another thing. let the person who actually took the time to make the movie have some respect, he worked very hard on this and you took probably a few days to say what you had to say now get off you're high horse and go solve some real world problems.

Well its pretty sketchy how this movie has been removed from a lot of sites. What's the reason for that?

okay I have read every single comment from the beginning to the end cause after watching moon rising, I wanted to hear exactly what greymoon's response was for every remark and question provided to him. I am no professor or physicist or have any type of experience related to understanding and questioning the above topics or confirming or defrauding the movie, but I do understand common sense.

Whens the last time we went to the moon?

Why is it that the two men who actually went to the moon have statements confirming more of what Jose says then just a normal trip to the moon? (Neil/Buzz)

Why is it your only claim and standing point of your argument in defrauding Jose's movie is based off of only two picture comparisons and not referencing any of the other statements made within the movie?

I can go on with a list of questions that relate to this topic, you would most likely brush off, but the fact that you are fervently trying to prove this to be fake has me wondering as well. There are more sources on the web that believe this movie to be more fact then fiction and I stand with them on that. I wont say that 100% I completely agree with everything the movie states and shows but I lean more towards, there's something being hidden from us about the truth of the moon and all I want to do is find out the truth. The fact you have obsessed with trying to prove Jose's movie to be wrong in itself scares me and just confirms with me your goal in all this is not to find out truth but to try and defraud other peoples passion about finding out the truth. I am sure becoming an astronaut is not an easy process and only a selected few are accepted after many tests of mental as well as physical capabilities are completed. For two of the first people to go and come back from the moon with more to say related to Jose's theory then yours proves enough for me to question the same things Jose does. I mean come on two of the most famous and historical explorers (Niel/Buzz) come back from the moon, risk being ridiculed and laughed at as mad men to make up a UFO story?

Dear "Scribe" et al,

(@ "scribe04260: boy oh boy is that pseudonym a misnomer ).

P.S ... you didn't actually need to inform anyone that you are are "... no professor or physicist or have any type of experience related to understanding and questioning the above topics..." - that much is obvious.

Almost every single sentence you so painstakingly penned contains at least one logical fallacy, none of which are worth time explaining to you as you are quite obviously disinterested in any information contrary to your beliefs.

The only thing hidden from you is critical thinking and rational thought.

Chew on this, mull it over a while:

Nixon failed to hide Watergate and Clinton couldn't cover up a blowjob.

Consider if you will how many people were involved in either of these attempted cover-ups. A dozen a piece maybe ?

It took over 400,000 (FourHundred THOUSAND) people to get Apollo 11 to our nearest moon. (and yes there are at least 2, possibly 3 moons that orbit Earth).

Put that through your "Common Sense" filter.

As for Jose eSCAMilla - he is is neither a madman nor a wayward genius.

eSCAMilla is just another con artist selling snake to the credulous.

SCIENCE . It Works.... Bitches . Prof R Dawkins.

stop talking about each other. none of us has been to the moon. those who believe nasa are as silly as those who believe independent filmmakers. keep an open mind about terra incognita. there will always be reports from some claiming knowledge of the unexplored. reports are never substitutes for first-hand experience. in all this discussion has anyone contacted the people behind mapaplanet.org to ask why "natural" is in quotes?

"Natural" is used in the way that a person would air them to indicate a level of sarcasm. The basic colour of the Moon is brown. Well if you believe this article it is lol.
