SHOOTING THE MOON
In an article from the January 26, 1994 edition of the Bakersfield Californian, "An unmanned spacecraft roared off the launch pad Tuesday for a seven-month mission to photograph the moon as part of the first U.S. lunar exploration mission in 21 years.
"Clementine I will use sensors built by the Defense Department for missile defense to create strip photographs of the moon and an asteroid called Geographos.
"Data collected when Clementine I points its instruments at the moon next month and at Geographos next summer will be merely a by-product of a $75 million plus mission primarily intended to test new defense technology."
UFO researchers have learned that Clementine I will also be sending detailed photographs of the "artifacts on the moon" first reported in the early 1970s.
