    How We Saw the Moon: Top Ten Apollo Images

    How We Saw the Moon: Top Ten Apollo Images

    Cool pics from the Apollo program.

    On February 26, 2016, we opened our latest exhibition of imagery, A New Moon Rises, in our Art Gallery. These stunning images of our largest satellite show, with amazing clarity, our nearest planetary neighbor. But not nearly as clearly as the Apollo astronauts saw it. Here is my top ten list of the most amazing images brought to us by the only 12 people to see the Moon while standing on it. I was not alive for the Moon landings, but these are the images that tell me the story of six missions that changed my world.

    Read some of the comments from the nay sayers. I guess there will always be those folks who cannot believe the obvious.

    BTW, this is how I saw the moon! I took this photo through my telescope some years ago. Please note one of the "proofs" the moon landing was fake was no stars in the background. Tell me how many stars you see in this photo!

    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    Too much light in your pic, and on the light side of the moon to easily see stars....

    Exactly. This was a full moon and the reflected light blocked out the stars. The same is true of the moon landing shots.

    Yeah, the moon landing never happened. I have documented proof right here

    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077294/

    If you notice they needed to kill the astronauts in order to keep the secret. Who are those guys claiming to be astronauts? Crisis actors???

    Some guy got in John Glenn's face about the "fake" moon landing, and John knocked him out. The police didn't press charges.

    Back to the real topic of this thread. I cannot believe it was 50 years ago that we landed on the moon! I remember being glued to the TV set and everyone all but crying at what we had accomplished. It is a shame we have let the Chinese forge ahead of us in using the moon for a base.

    Yes it is. Hopefully NASA is on track for 2024.

    I'll say one thing about the alleged moon walk that occured after the astronauts passed thru the deadly Van Allen radiation belts, survived -250 F to +250 f temps in tin can and took perfect pics on the "moon" with a Hasselblaad that had no viewfinder and returned safely using less computer power than a modern toothbrush...Stanley Kubrick throws one hell of a moonwalk in the Arizona desert

    Zero stars. There is no atmosphere on the moon for the light to reflect from. Even Stanley Kubricks go-fers knew that much
