Its ridiculous to state that stars cannot been seen from space if one has never been there.
As somebody earlier said " our sun is a star " , so that should be enough to debunk this stupid premise.
Yes, I'll agree the Sun is a star, but what does it look like to the only people who have been able to view it from clear space, from outside of Earths (or the Moons) atmosphere so we can eliminate the possibility of those atmospheres affecting what the Sun looks like.
The Sun's size (angular diameter) from the Moon, or en route, is almost the same as it is from on Earth.
now no doubt GaryN will start thumbing through his book of excuses to why this image cant be true, I can't wait to see the reply.
You do know what VISIBLE light means ?
You have been shown deep space visible light images from New Horizons and Cassini showing stars and you still argue.
And yes, its entirely possible for the ight sky to be blacker than black and still be full of stars. A child can understand this.
And by the way, i have seen Alexei Leonov and Chris Hadfield both give talks about their experiences
And no, Leonov did not say they were all red.
Your explanation is pure assumption, the Lunar surface is only ever decently lit when the centre of the beam of light created by Solar UV/EUV radiation interacting with the fine lunar dust atmosphere is directly over the area where the images are taken. LADEE has confirmed this. Exposure meters were never used during Apollo missions on the Lunar surface, and there is no exposure information (I'd be glad if someone can prove me wrong) from the Chang'e 3 camera available, so we don't know the actual lumen values for different times during the Lunar day.

Anders said they were in darkness as they were, "just starting to go around, behind the moon, still in contact with the Earth, but in the shadow of not only the sun but also Earth shine, Earth shine being six times brighter than moon shine."
It was at that time Anders looked out of his window and, "saw all these stars, more stars than you could pick out constellations from"
There aren’t enough stars present, or even (to be fair) enough objects that we can be sure are stars, but it is only reasonable to present everything available. Make your own mind up.
