Is that really you Reginald Kenneth Dwight?

Anyway, let's assume for the sake of argument that the
photo above was really a fake taken out in Area 51....

So where WAS was the light source positioned?

Either...
Off to the left, to throw the astronaut's shadow to the right?

Or....
Off to the right, to throw the flag shadow to the left?

Can't be two lights or there would be dual shadows.

Alternatively, it might be changing slope of the ground behind
the flag which makes the shadows LOOK like they are converging
--regardless of whether photographed on Earth or the Moon.

Whoa! Re above Mythbusters video. Skeptics wonder why there are no stars in real moon photos and so I wondered why I couldn't see the room's background in the video above. After all with just one light source I should see the shelves. And so at about 3:13 you can see a pure black mat behind their fake moon surface duplicating the black sky of the "real" moon photos.

If I were the country that landed on the moon and placed my flag on the moon, I would focus the Hubble telescope on that same moon and show the world pictures of the flag and footprints that I left on the moon.

Not to say Kubrick wasn't smart enough to do it.

Humm!

PS. Uneven ground is rather convenient but doesn't explain the missing shadow on the shaft of the flag pole Laughing He shaft shaft!

I have to mention- For those that have read the Dave McGowan article before, I've just now noticed that it's been periodically updated and contains a lot of new content [since the last time I read it]


McGowan lost credibility with me a few articles into his 60's-70's music industry article.
To be fair there were many interesting facts
I hadn't known about including the circumstances of Admiral Morrison.
However, after a while the idea of Frank Zappa being 'Illuminati' or whatever became a bit of a yawn.
Therefore I wouldn't be surprised if although his articles on the moon
might contain some interesting information worth further looking into,
most of it is probably botched facts.


Excuse me Bri- McGowan lost credibility with you. How so? Be specific, obviously you're read his material in detail, right. Bit of a yawn--isn't that one of Dave's, the yawn thing.

Yes Sid it has been updated. Can you imagine the effort put into such a thing?

Bri, As for the Moon and any research done in that regard, or whatever, you supposedly weren't even alive at the time, so you missed out on all the personal stuff that would have left any reasonable impression. No crowding around a fuzzy black and white set, or hunched over an old radio. No asking questions, or looks of disbelief.

One would be very hard pressed to find a better researcher than Dave McGowan.
