At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

No, by Moon Men I do not mean lunar beings observed by astronauts who have landed on the moon or by any mechanical device sent to survey it.  In fact, Moon Men is a term used for Bigfoots in Warren and Dekalb Counties in Tennessee.

Anaxagoras, an ancient Greek, assures us there were houses on the Moon.  I don't know how he claimed to have discovered this.  Another personage who felt there were Moon Men was Leonardo Da Vinci.  But I am sure you are asking, What about von Gruithuizen (1774-1852)?  What, indeed?  He claimed to have observed a lunar city.

Incidentally the village of Moone in Ireland has no astronomical connections.

I don't know of any early scientists who claimed they could discern faces on Mars.
