But the explosion of the tank had enshrouded the Apollo 13 spacecraft with debris. Commander Jim Lovell and his crew couldn’t discern the stars from the particles that glimmered in the sunlight. “The situation was, without the ability to see the stars, you couldn’t navigate,” Woodfill said.

Strange. Something not discussed. In the second picture at the "here" in the original article, if you place the "+" to enlarge near the upper right corner of the image on the fuzzy object, you will find a very distinct tubular-shaped object that has a domed end with an apparent light in the center. The only thing of ours that it could possibly be would be the booster. But it is rather without features on the end, no hardware showing to indicate connectors, etc. If is is the booster that close to the module, then it was taken on the outward leg, not on the return. If an official image, it should contain data clearly showing time and sequence of the images. If the presenter fails to provide that crucial data--having discovered the images in NASA files--then I suspect a hoax by the presenter.
ETA to better and correctly indicate the second "here" rather than the first and how to enlarge it.

How is that these crafts are able to avoid debri for such prolonged periods of time moving at high rates of speed?
