Listen, I'm not convinced either way, but the whole stars thing is just silly. On film, especially older film, if you have a reflective surface
brighter below you than anything above, the film cannot possibly pick up the dimmer objects by comparison. Try to film a house amongst a snow-covered
yard on a bright day. The house will be dim if you let the camera adjust to the bright snow right away. You will get limited details, if any. A camera
can get "snow blind" just like a person.
I know this, and I am by no means an expert, and yet I haven't heard it from anyone but me.
And the reason there is backlight is because of the reflective quality of the surface, along with very high powered flash photography.
Again, I guess I don't believe either way, but I need some better evidence before I take that leap. Everything discussed, from radiation, to the LEM,
to whatever, has always been debatable. To prove something, you must squash the debate of the other ideas.
And I didn't see the cameras.
