Glasses Chilean lawyer named Jenaro Gajardo Vera owns the moon

Comment: Many people have claimed possession of celestial bodies,
including the Moon. Some even through notary. I read this account of
Chilean poet, Jenaro Gajardo Vera, doing so in 1954. That seems plausible,
however the story also goes to say that Nixon recognized this by asking
him permission to land on the Moon, as is stated for example here:
http://www.futilitycloset.com/2010/03/12/moonshine/ (and many other
Spanish-written sites). I imagine this is the poet's fabrication, is this
somehow debunkable?
