I found this video about the flags on the moon.
There are 5 of them
(6? He says 5 the first time and 6 the 2nd time...hmmm)

It tells all about the flags and the poles and what they are made of,
how long they should last,
it is pretty informative.

Turns out the people at the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal (which is the best archive of data, transcripts, and photos from Apollo missions) failed to find the Apollo 14 and 15 flag shadows: www.hq.nasa.gov...

I found the Apollo 15 one for them:



and Phil Stooke at the Unmanned Spaceflight Forum found the Apollo 14 one, with some additional research and images by me:



The last one was tricky to spot, as it's only clearly visible in theese three images.

I've notified them, and hopefully the article will get updated.

All you have to do is watch enough original NASA footage to realize this.

Find out of NASA has any earth images that are not composite images.

Wouldn't it be weird for them to have gone to the moon and never have actually taken a picture of the earth from "space"?

Yeah, it would be weird, and the Apollo astronauts took many photos of Earth from the Moon and from cis-lunar space, using their Hasselblad cameras and colour film.

Apollo 8 photo from the lunar orbit:


Apollo 11 photos of Earth, taken on their way to the Moon: www.youtube.com...


Apollo 11 photo of Earth over the Lunar Module, taken from the surface:
www.hq.nasa.gov...

What's really great is that you can match up the cloud patterns in those photos with weather satellite photos taken on the same day.

There's more evidence that the USA went to the Moon than there is evidence that the USA did not go to the moon.

Correct?

Meh. It's just as easy, if not easier, for me to claim the moon hoax supporters are pushing "fake news" (and I hate using such an overused -- and misused -- term).

In this composite image we see Earth appear to rise over the lunar horizon from the viewpoint of the spacecraft, with the center of the Earth just off the coast of Liberia (at 4.04 degrees North, 12.44 degrees West).

Yes, some of the NASA images are composite, many others aren't. Like I said, the photos taken by Apollo astronauts were taken using good old-fashioned film cameras. They didn't have handheld digital cameras back then.

Here's an article about those cameras: www.hq.nasa.gov...

You can find direct, unadulterated high-res scans from those films at the Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth, by searching for specific Apollo missions: eol.jsc.nasa.gov...
Here's one such scan, with the Earth in view: eol.jsc.nasa.gov...

Here is a non-composite movie using the "DAC" film (film, not digital) movie camera from Apollo 8 showing the Earth:


A single non-composite still image taken with a film camera from Apollo 8 of another earth-rise:


Here is another single non-composite image from Apollo 17 taken with a still camera that used film:

Well, the proof that we went to the moon is thousands of pictures, hours of video and film, hundreds of pounds of moon rocks, third party verification by eavesdropping on the radio transmission, optical and radio tracking, independent verification of the samples brought back, modern day mapping that matches perfectly with Apollo photographs, visual confirmation of apollo sites from LRO, anecdotal evidence from those involved, gigabytes of scientific data from experiments, pinging of the retroreflectors left by apollo still in use to this day. etc, etc, etc.

And the proof we didn't go . . . nothing, literally nothing. Every time someone presents "evidence" of a hoax, within an hour it's exposed as either extreme ignorance of science or an outright lie.
