  11. I-I Introduction
  12.  
  13. To give a brief introduction, this project is associated with askloona.tumblr.com/ and messages transmitted from the same. It appears to indicate that Luna is trapped on Earth's moon, while infected with a black "miasma" which continually leaks from her body. She appears to have had hostile interactions with astronauts, and is using or used equipment attached to lunar probes to transmit.
  14.  
  15. Since then, additional information has been accrued: Luna's banishment was apparently pre-planned in response to something Luna encountered or discovered on the moon. It also became clear that Luna is capable of visiting Earth at least temporarily. Critically, it also seems increasingly likely that Apollo 17 may have recovered Luna's gameboy, leading to hostile contact during Apollo 18, 19, or other missions.
  16.  
  17. Celestia appears at times. Whether this is literally Celestia or a manifestation of some portion of Luna's consciousness is unclear.

  21. I-II : Theoretical in-universe timeline, started at >>23791847 :
  22.  
  23. >Equestria, unknown date
  24. Official documents state that Princess Luna has discovered something related to the moon, became unstable, and was banished for the safety of Equestria.
  25.  
  26. >18 & 20 July 1967
  27. Luna is photographed by what may be Surveyor 4.
  28.  
  29. >23 July 1969
  30. Luna is caught on tape by Apollo 11.
  31.  
  32. >? November 1968
  33. Luna is spotted near Apollo 12's landing spot.

  44. Luna sighting, possibly by Apollo 17.
  45.  
  46. >11 - 14 December 1972
  47. Apollo 17 steals Luna's Gameboy, and it is taken back to Earth (notably as artefact 2). This might be what causes Luna to attack Apollo 18 and possibly Apollo 19. Luna recovers the Gameboy shortly thereafter, leading to closure of Byrd Station underground facility.
  48.  
  49. >? ? 1973
  50. Possible Apollo 18 attack. The mission is covered up.

  62. Luna reacts to the Apollo–Soyuz Test Project. It is speculated that she reacts because it marks an end of the Space Race.
  63.  
  64. >? ? 2015
  65. Luna visits Earth, and is briefly caught on a security cam. Presumably she visited an eastern European country, based on "CCCP" tag on video.

  76. I-III : Thread-by-thread archive.
  77.  
  78. From early threads; dates missing:
  79.  
  80. So, here's what we've got so far: (If the thread is gone, just plug the post ID into archive.moe)
  81. > Areicibo Luna variant message ( >>23730509 >>23738151 ) - see >>23790168 for a breakdown of individual elements.
  82. > A couple morse code messages in the thread ( >>23751950 >>23752526 )
  83. > A decoded SSTV image from that audio file ( >>23759958 >>23760206 )
  84. > 6EQUJ5 6 7 code (Wow! signal)
  85. > A fuckton of date references to various lunar- and space-related events.
  86. > Some generic spoopy messages in morse.
  87. > New document in >>23764347 - indicates cover-up regarding Luna's presence on the moon.
  88. > New image: >>23767489 - yielded name reference "Luna Probe 3" and date reference "4/27/1971"
  89. > New image: "Celestia" possible - >>23769909 - yeilded 3-digit code.
  90. > New image: "Sad Luna" - >>23771084
  91. > New video 1: www.dropbox.com/s/qydibab6e411xou/itsr.wmv?dl=0 yielded unknown gif code.
  92. > New video 2: www.dropbox.com/s/qh1llomtr2u4kv5/help00.wmv?dl=0 - yielded nothing so far.
  93.  
  94. Shit that might be a reference, but we aren't sure:
  95. > Possible reference to Lunar Module construction encoded in the "forever" response ( >>23761723 )
  96. > Possible indication that Luna is using one of the Lunokhod rovers to communicate ( >>23761784
  97. > Possible indication that Apollo 11 seismometers detected Luna's activity ( >>23761848 , note that it references the same post as #2 above)
  98. > Possible bar code hidden in image: >>23765527
  99. > Code - see >>23763499 >>23763546 - ROT13 refers to Apollo 13, date and time matches for onboard explosion. Messages read "LET ME LEAVE" and "CAN'T BREATHE" respectively. Note that these messages were not delivered in the same format as others from Luna; their authenticity is suspect.
  100.  
  101. And shit we still need to figure out:
  102. > 1/2/3 code - see >>23769909
  103. > Unknown symbol in the upper-right corner and 'rainbow' seen around Earth in >>23762543 >>23763800 - can anyone confirm if the latter does or does not appear in an open-source, original photo?
  104. > 24h18m10s ± 7s - see >>23762956 - possible geographic location?
  105. > Date references - 10/28/1972 - see >>23763552 , "Luna Probe 3" and "4/27/1971" ( >>23767489 )
  106.  
  107. > Possible star-based lettering - >>23772007 >>23772025
  108. > Unknown entity seen in image, see >>23803441
  109. > What is the role of "Celestia" in this? Is she a manifestation of Luna's consciousness, actually Celestia, or something else? If she is literally Celestia, what is her purpose?
  110.  
  111. Finally, we had a new post briefly go up on the tumblr containing image at >>23769458 → - contains unknown code and possibly URL fragment.

  119. Notable events in order of occurence:
  120.  
  121. > Images Received - unknown triangle or pyramid-based pattern and Explorer 1 outline, >>23773173 >>23773176
  122. > Image received - unkonwn lander or probe - >>23775033
  123. > Image received - possible LEM or CSM schematics - >>23775077 - note that the text is likely indicated to be a lie, based on earlier statements in the blog.
  124. > Image receieved - yielded schematics of Saturn V rocket. See >>23775377
  125. > Image received; "having fun?" - >>23775721. Attached code " 12113112321312 12222311111 " was formatted as Morse code, yielded message "LUNA 15". Brightening of image listed above yielded message "You are close. But I am closer." in plaintext and image of Celestia(?), plus unkonwn star pattern. See >>23775739. Note that 3-digit morse interpretation does not work with prior Celestia image above.
  126. > New morse code message on tumblr - a.tumblr.com/tumblr_nr8iy6APw71rtkb9do1.mp3 - vanished after a short while. Cleanup yielded message "FORGOTTEN TRAJECTORY HAS BEEN CALCULATED / STA EIGHT IS CONFIRMED DOWN / THE ANTENNA CONTINUES TO TRANSMIT DATA / PROCESSING COMPLETE / DELTA V CALCULATED / ERR UNCONFIRMED / COORDINATES TRANSMITTED / DATA COMPLETE / AWAITING SIGNAL ACQUISITION FROM ISS". Meaning of "STA EIGHT" and "ERR" unknown, may mean "stage eight" and "error" or "ETA".

  225.  
  226. > New image found submitted on other blog - >>23825848 - appears to show a camp or facility in snowy terrain. Coordinates from "thank you" image submitted in previous thread found to reference antarctic location on Earth, suspected to be the same location. "1112" ID3 tag speculated to be day/month or month/day combination in year 1978, possibly indicating itsr.wmv occurred on those dates, see >>23825972.
  227. > Coordinates found to match location of Byrd Station, a former antarctic station operated by the United States military. See >>23827261 or >>23827311 for general information on US Military activities on the site. Note that Byrd Station housed an underground facility until 1972.

  230. > Date referenced for solar eclipse image is also found to be a "supermoon" (unusually close approach of Earth and Moon) - >>23828713. Possibility that eclipses or supermoons represent Luna's window for travelling to Earth is speculated.
  231. > It is noted that a supermoon occurred in 1972 within a day Apollo 17 splashdown and a few weeks of Byrd Station's underground facility closing. See >>23829775. It is speculated that Luna retrieved the gameboy taken by Apollo 17, leading to facility closure.
  232. > New image found submitted on other blog - >>23830257 >>23830301 - found to show Luna standing in profile. No context or meaning.
  233. > It is noted that an early image showing an astronaut encountering Luna in a cave may show miasma appearing from elsewhere than Luna. It is speculated that this might be the "source" of the miasma. See >>23831642
  234. > Meaning of WH-08s possibly discovered: It may refer to the Westinghouse TV cameras used by the Apollo-series missions - >>23845549.
  235. > It is noted that the 2004 closing of Byrd station matches abandonment of immediate Moon-return plans. It is speculated that both of these events may be related to Luna being observed on the moon.

  241. > STA EIGHT portion of message found in in thread #4 linked to STA:7 reference found in seperate image - >>23855956 - it is speculated that STA may be a secret space mission identifier (as shuttle missions were labeled STS-#) or a reference to Apollo 17 sample stations 7 and 8 (linking to indications of secret or covered-up activity during Apollo 17).
  242. > Image in above point also noted to be tagged from 2004 - the same year that Byrd Station was closed, further indicating a connection with Luna being spotted and Byrd Station closure.
  243. > Askloona updates, text message "T-24" - presumed to indicate an update will occur in 24 hours.

  250. > Speculation: Dark spot seen around 0:44 may be a cave; Luna was previously seen being discovered in a miasma-infested cave; some claim to see smoke emerging from the spot. Scene of Miasma-infested gameboy speculated to mean that gameboy is either source or incarnation of miasma. Note that Luna previously referred to the Miasma as "life", giving double-meaning to text message.

  318. After a ~4 month delay, a new thread goes up. I will separately parse updates that went up during the interim period and those that occurred during the thread.
  319.  
  320. Prior updates:
  321. - robyreshy.tumblr.com/ now acts as a reserve of deleted Askloona posts and captured skype conversations. Invaluable resource; thank you!
  322. - 7/1/15: Askloona updates: Distorted image of distant astronaut on the moon, accompanied by text: "é̲̲û̶̲̲MM̶̲̲_̶̲̲Û̲¬̶̲̲¼̲̲ "
  323. - 7/2/15: Askloona updates: Another distorted image of an astronaut on the moon, accompanied by text: "▄̿▀̿▐̿ ))"
  324. - 7/7/15: Askloona updates: Third distorted image of astronaut; note that astronaut has been growing steadily closer. Accompanying text: " 9̶̲̲̅6̶̲̲̅ ̶̲̲̅4̲2̶̲̲̅ ̶̲̲̅30̲ ̶̲̲̅6̲̲ ̲4̶̲̲̅2̲ 5̶̲̲̅1̲ 2̶̲̲̅1̲ 7̶̲̲̅2 ̶̲̲̅2̲1̲̲ ̲̲__= "
  325. - Second update on the same day: Fourth distorted image of astronaut, in the same pose as previous image but shifted. Accompanying text: " 9̶̲̲̅6̶̲̲̅ ̶̲̲̅4̲2̶̲̲̅ ̶̲̲̅30̲ ̶̲̲̅6̲̲ ̲4̶̲̲̅2̲ 5̶̲̲̅1̲ 2̶̲̲̅1̲ 7̶̲̲̅2 ̶̲̲̅2̲1̲̲ ̲̲_   [][]CAM "
  326. - 7/13/15: Askloona updates: Close-up image of astronaut with severely damaged faceplate. Accompanying text: " ▐̶̲̅▐̶̲̅▐̶̲̅▐̶̲̅▐̶̲̅▐̶̲̅▐̶̲̅▐̶̲̅▐̶̲̅▐̶̲̅▐̶̲̅  "
  327. - 7/19/15: Askloona updates: 'Sketchy' image astronaut on the moon. 'Eyes' are seen above the moon's horizon. Accompanying text: "  ▀̶̲   ╦̶̲ ╦̲   ▀ ╪̲   ╦̶̲  "
  328. - 8/23/15: See ** post, Luna sends Skype user image of Celestia with background stars. No text, but file name is the same as the content of .txt file linked in earlier dropbox found via in-image code.
  329. - 9/9/15: See ** post; Skype user is sent sketchy image of 'sad' Luna. No text.
  330. - 9/13/15: See ** post; Skype user is sent sketchy image of miasma-active Celestia with 'eyes' in the background. No text.
  331. - See ** post, same day, Skype user is sent sketchy image of Celestia; gameboy is visible in background if gamma modified. No text.
  332. - 9/20/15: See ** post, Skype user is sent sketchy image of Earth. Luna indicates by chat that 'day' is somehow 'different'. Meaning unclear.
  333. - 9/26/15: Askloona updates: Color image with Luna in the foreground; an astronaut is seen in the distance.
  334. - 9/27/15: Askloona updates: Gif of 'sketchy' image of an astronaut. Vaguely similar to 7/19/15 update. No text.
  335. - Second update on the same day: Series of four images of an 'eye'. No text.
  336. - 9/29/15: Askloona updates: Audio file with repetitive 'beat' noise, unclear context. Maybe slowed down? Accompanying text: " —– – — - —– — ———– — — —— —- / —– — ———– — / —– — ———– — " EDITOR'S NOTE: If this is Morse, I can't figure it out. I tried treating the shorter dashes as dots and vice versa, but got nothing.
  337. - 10/4/15: Askloona updates: Heavily blurred image, light section vaguely resembles as '6'. Meaning unclear. No text.
  338. - 10/5/15: Askloona updates: Blurred image of Luna on the moon. Camera appears to be on the ground. Accopmanying text: " ▀̶̅▀̅▐̅▀̅|̅▀▀̅|̅▀̶̅▀̅▀̅▐̅|̅▀̅_ "
  339. - 10/21/15: Askloona updates: Text only, " -07▀̲̅  "
  340. - 10/29/15: Askloona updates: Sketchy gif of numerous 'eyes'. Text: " -1▀ " [Note: In light of the following update, these two are probably a countdown to a major post, as she'd done in the past.]
  341. - Second update: Video of an astronaut standing and walking on the moon, recorded from a camera held by the astronaut. Luna appears as a shadow next to the astronaut at the end; astronaut appears to be surprised and is visibly backing away from Luna. Image of Celestia appears for a brief moment at the end. No audio. Accompanying text: " █̲▐̲̲ ̲̲█̲̲▐̲_̲̲▐̲̲ ̲̲█_̲̲▐̲̲ ̲█̲̲▐̲▐̲̲_̲▐̲̲ ̲̲█̲▐̲▐̲̲_̲▐̲▐̲̲_̲̲█̲̲▐̲_̲█̲̲ ̲█̲̲▐̲  "
  342. - 11/1/15: Post by Sorel-estia; image shows Astronaut working with a tool on a sensor of some kind. Miasma 'tentacles' are visible on the lower border of the image, suggesting the camera was held by miasma. Accompanying text: " [̷̡͍̌̉]̶̨̻̅̕_̷̙̝̈͝[̷̨͎̀̑]̷̻̰̏͐_̸̗͚̈́̋[̴̢͎̀̊]̸̻̃̎͜_̶̘̼̅́[̴̛̼͉̃]̷̠̞͐̔_̸͓̟͑͝[̴̺̳̐̀]̸̗̙͋͆_̸͈̥̉̄[̶̨̛̭́]̴̗͕̌͗_̴̱̳̀͠[̴̺̻͛̈́]̵͙̃̓͜_̸̢̙̄͑[̴̪̘͑̐]̸̗͈̋̋_̴͚̭̎̚[̴̞̞̇̅]̶̭̙̈́̾_̷̘̞̒͝[̶̢̻̐̒]̶͓̫̑͘_̷̺̜̓͌  " Some similarity to morse?
  343. - 11/3/15: Luna posts to /moon/ - >>25311978 - no text, closeup image of miasma-active Luna staring into a camera. Although a gif, no animation appears to be present. No text.
  344. - 11/5/15: Askloona updates: In response to question "Do you wish you could see somepony/ponies again? If so, who?" image of Luna stomping on or pointing at an astronaut's footprint on the moon. Camera is held above her, looking down. Accompanying text: " ≡▀≡▀ ". Image is confusing in context of Luna's apparent ability to travel to Earth. Were Astronaut's special somehow?
  345. - Same day: Luna contacts skype user, indicates that Celestia 'knew'. Fits in context of older images indicating NMM was allowed to happen.
  346. - 11/10/15: Askloona updates: Distorted animation of miasma-active Celestia. Of particular interest is that her throat appears to be cut; the dripping line on her throat does not match her peytral.
  347. - 11/13/15: Luna contacts skype user, indicates Celestia is 'dangerous' but has not yet seen the other skype users.
  348. - 11/16/15: Skype user is sent distorted, static-ey image of Celestia. No accompanying text, but indecipherable text appears in the background of image.
  349. - Same day: ** post: Robyreshy updates a series of old images sent by Luna. For archival purposes, they have been backdated on this archive to their proper dates; see similarly notated posts.
  350. - 12/1/15: Askloona updates: Image of Luna looking at a camera. Text addition: " MTIyMzEzMjEyMTMxMjMyMTMyMzExMTMxMzEzMjMxMTExMzEzMjIzMTEyMjINCg== / MjMxMTExMzEzMjEyMjMxMjExMjMxMTMxMTEzMjMxMTEyMg==

Fed through base64 and then morse decoders, they produce: "WECANTSEETHEM2 / THEYEXIST3 / THEYWATCHUSALL9 / ANDTHEYRECALLING078990". Possibly refers to 'eyes'?
  352. - Same day: Skype user is sent image of orbital diagram; appears to show smaller objects in orbit of both moon and Earth, with dotted lines drawn from Earth to moon-object and straight lines drawn from moon-object to Earth-object. Luna indicates "not me", but that she likes the (the objects?) because "they see me". Then indicates they "see" the skype user, and that "they are calling". SPECULATION: Luna has already confirmed she has hijacked old satellites to communicate. Possibly indicates that the truthfulness of her communications depends on whether she is communicating directly to Earth or via Earth-orbit satellite?
  353. - 12/7/15: Askloona updates: Animated of Luna on the moon with 3/2/1 flashing in the background. No text. Code allegedly translates to "AONNECG" - not able to translate it myself, need the actual numbers posted.
  354. - 12/9/15: Luna sends skype user image of the Earth. Somewhat pixellated, no obvious background images.
  355.  
  356. At this point, the /mlp/ thread begins.
  357.  
  358. > Anon confirms that some of the text portions in updates can be translated - >>25775738 - 10/29/15 video's accompanying text goes to Morse and then "CALLING", 10/5/15 update reads "FIVE".
  359. > Askloona background image briefly updates, new images present. >>25775901 - images include Celestia next to the Earth, an eye with the word 'alive', an Apollo lunar lander, 2 sets of line graphs (meaning unclear).
  360. > Speculation: It is increasingly clear that the miasma and/Celestia is able to modify or interfere with communications.
  361. > 3/2/1 code in 12/9/15 update noted as being similar to a code encountered early on in the archive. That code also remains unsolved.

  365. Thread #20, run Thursday 5/12/16 to  >>27335509
  366.  
  367. Update of activity since previous threads:
  368.  
  369. - robyreshy.tumblr.com/ continues to act as an archive of Askloona posts.
  370. - 12/22/15: Luna posts to /moon/ thread on /mlp/ - >>25847617 - image of the moon's horizon with Earth in background. No text.
  371. - 12/24/15: Askloona updates; image of miasma-affected Luna looking at camera. Accompanying text, 'Begin'.
  372. - 1/26/16: Askloona updates; image of miasma-affected Luna looking at camera with a lunar mountain in the background. Accompanying text, "ty�cho��". Probably indicates the mountain is the peak at the center of Tycho crater. Note that Tycho crater was visited by Surveyor 7 probe; Luna has previously confirmed using the Surveyor-series probes to communicate.
  373. - Same day: Skype user is contacted by Luna, who indicates she missed the contact. When questioned on why she was absent, responds "ty c". Possible indication she was busy or hiding at Tycho crater.
  374. - 1/28/16: Tumblr "cookiesoupmusic" receives image of their OC in Loona's style. Numbers on image: "0632_674+18T"
  375. - 2/6/16: Askloona updates; image of saddened Luna laying on the moon. Accompanying text: "AS14 64 9088"
  376. - 2/17/16: Askloona updates; 'stuttering' stereograph image of Luna on the moon. Accompanying text: "F2c"
  377. - 3/2/16: Askloona updates; image of miasma-active Celestia looking at the user. Text on image: "FILE 023 UNNAMED". Accompanying text: "sta_Li4tLS0gLi0tLS0gLi0tLS0gLi4uLS0gLi4tLS0gLi4tLS0gLi4tLS0gLi4uLS0gLi0tLS0gLi4tLS0gLi0tLS0gLi4uLS0gLi0tLS0gLi0tLS0gLi0tLS0gLi4uLS0gLi0tLS0gLi4tLS0gLy8vLyAxMTMyMjMyMTExMzEyMTMxMTMxMTIzMjIvLy8gdHJfcyByZWMgbGFtYmVydA==", translates to "sta_dorsa //// imbrium/// tr_s rec lambert ?" May refer to a dorsal image from the Mare Imbrium; note that it was the site of 2 Apollo landings and a recent Chinese rover. Other meaning unclear, decoding required.
  378. - 3/17/16: Askloona updates; in response to the question "Does it even hurt anymore?", image of miasma-affected Luna showing her gameboy displaying 'YES'. Accompanying text: "Hadley" Note that Hadley crater was the landing site for Apollo 15.
  379. - 3/18/16: Askloona updates; black and white image of Luna accompanied by text "home".
  380. - 4/13/16: Askloona updates, image of Luna with a distorted black-and-white image of miasma-active Celestia in the background.
  381. - Same day, Skype user is sent contact from Luna. Provided are coordinates for 3 craters (-30.0686,-17.1030; -44.4755,84.6924; 7.6270,-69.9698). Note that Luna has previously incidated she is active in certain craters; may refer to where she lives.
  382. - Same day, Skype user recieves further message: "YOU ARE STILL HERE?", "CANNOT HURT YOU", "SHE STORY" / "SHES TORY"? (Third statement unclear.)
  383.  
  384. At this point, the thread begins again on /mlp/: >>27335509
  385.  
  386. > Askloona updates with a major video posted. Video found at www.tumblr.com/video/robyreshy/144242291985/700/
  387. > Latter half of video is accompanied by 'screaming' noise.
  388. > Text seen in video is as follows: "LIVE FROM THE SURFACE OF THE MOON" (accompanied by camera pan until Luna comes into close-up view), "HELLO" (accompanied by black screen), "WELCOME TO THE MOON", "OVEREXPOSURE IS IRREPARABLE", "SHADOWS ARE HAZARDOUS", "THEY FESTER IN LIGHT ABSENCE" (accompanied by video of astronaut working on the moon, with active miasma emerging from rock in the background; camera slowly zooms on miasma-rock), "THEY ARE IN CLOSE PROXIMITY" (black screen), "DO NOT LOCATE THEM" (pan and zoom into lunar landscape), "AVOID FINDING THEM" (black screen), "DO NOT SEE THEM" (image of Tycho crater mountain previously seen in 1/26/16 update), "COME TO US C" (video of miasma-active Luna, camera holder appears to be approaching her), "IT IS AWARE OF YOU" (image of Tycho crater mountain; the top of the mountain breaks off and drifts up out of screen), "ONE IS MISSING" (image of Apollo LM descent stage; stage flickers before vanishing), "THE MOON IS ALL AROUND US" and "IT HAS YOU" (black screen).
  389. > Video accompanied by the following text: " □▄██▌□▄██▌□▄██▌M102565253RE" Text found to refer to data from Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter pointing to Luna 13 landing site - see >>27335806 >>27336198
  390. > Several statements are relevant in the context of previous entries:
  391. > Images in the past have shown Luna encountering the Miasma in a cave or pit; video corroborates the miasma being active there.
  392. > OVEREXPOSURE statement along with Astronaut may imply what was assumed to be hostile contact with Luna was in fact her attempt at maintaining containment by killing astronauts exposed to Miasma.
  393. > ONE IS MISSING may imply two things: One, previously referenced secret Apollo 18 mission that made hostile contact with Luna, "missing" referring to the mission being absent from history. Two, it may imply one Apollo unit has been stolen by Miasma/miasma-Celestia for unclear purposes.
