Why Are There No Stars On the Moon?
Moon hoax wackadoos have long complained that we couldn’t have gone to the moon because there are no stars in the pictures. It all had to have been shot on a sound stage. By idiots. Too stupid to think of the stars.
Right. Actually, prominent stars in the Apollo picture would have been suspicious. As anyone who’s ever played around with a camera at night can tell you, stars are only a little brighter than moon hoaxers. We went to the moon in the daytime. When you set a camera’s exposure to capture shiny spacecraft and smiling ‘nauts posing on a gleaming lunar surface, the stars kinda fade away. They ARE there, though, if you look for them.
As always, skepticism is healthy, paranoid delusion, less so. Have your own favorite example of moon hoaxican tripping over their own brains? Leave a comment and share.
Pity Neil Armstrong says he could not see any stars 🙂
Neil couldn’t see stars for the same reason the cameras couldn’t, his eyes were “stopped down” to shut out the daylight. Had he specifically looked, he might have seen Venus and a few of the brighter stars, just as the cameras did, just as some of the astronauts on later mission reported–as he alludes to in the BBC interview.
