:Richard, for obvious reasons I was interested in learning more about :the
above message. I searched the net, but found no evidence such :press
conference had taken place. The message is not very logically :consistent,
I'm afraid it may be some kind of a joke. But, if you know :of any further
info I would be interested in it.

It's not a spoof. It could be spam but I think its unlikely since I
haven't seen it posted much.

It's not a spoof, but it's crackpot anyway. This "ancient sturctures on
the moon" business is the work of the same guy who did the "faces on Mars"
stuff, Richard Hoagland. Hoagland was a space reporter for CBS during the
Moon shots 25 years ago.

There was actually a press conference at the National Press Club, even
though it wasn't listed on the NPC's web site. The presentation did
receive some reports, from USA Today to the Seattle Times.

It's not a hoax because they haven't made up any evidence. They just took
old photos, found blurry spots on them, and re-interpreted it with their
vivid imaginations.

Rican yeti", the pets of aliens who supposedly visited Earthlings
thousands of years ago. These winged "pets" now maraud and harass cattle.
