Jay Leno likes to prompt a desirable answer from band leader Kevin Eubanks by asking him "Kevin, what do I hate?" and Kevin provides the desired
answer "Stupid Criminals".
Well, I don't have anyone to prompt and I can't prompt you 'cause you don't have a clue either but the answer would be "Stupid UFO
Today (Saturday) I went to rense.com for my daily dose of what's the latest from non-traditional news sources and was rewarded with another laughable
UFO article. The title of rense's article was "Massive UFO Photographed On Back Of Moon By Apollo 10" I clicked on the link and was taken to the
rense page with the article From Robert Morningstar 1-1-10
As I promised on your program, here is the Apollo 10 picture that I promised for New Year's Day 2010.]
No photo was included but there was a link:
At the website one finds:

An Apollo photo enhancement by RDM* (above) reveals the mysterious shape of "The Sentinel," a massive object photographed in orbit on the far side
of the Moon by Apollo 10. Read the whole story soon on UFO Digest as "Odyssey Two" Begins Anew...

And below that one finds this photo:
No photo ID is given but in the comments below the photo someone supplies it: as10-28-3988.jpg
I recognized the photo instantly because a couple of years ago I was involved in a discussion over at Unexplained Mysteries as to what the object
might be and I found 2 additional photos (see below) of the object which Jim Oberg who had joined the discussion lauded me for.
To cut to the chase, here is what NASA has to say about the object:
AS10-28-3988 (0.8 Mb )
Command Module Mylar outside the front window. In preparation for a photographic pass over the planned Apollo 11 landing site, the crew re-oriented
the Command Module while over the backside of the Moon. After regaining contact with Earth, John Young mentioned at 118:41:31 "This morning when we
were turning around, first time, we had (means 'could see') about - I estimate maybe a foot-and-Êa-half or more of Mylar with that insulation
coating on the back of it. It would appear out inÊfront of our window, and I guess it was from the top hatch which is where that insulation
cameÊfrom in the first place. It Just sort of sat there for a while, and then quietly floated off. But my questionÊis, will this cause us any
thermal problems?" The strangely-shaped 'blob' in this image is almost certainly that piece of Mylar, possibly out-of-focus. Scan courtesy NASA
The reason for this thread is to point out how deluded some people can get. I wrote to rense to tell them the above and I sent Robert Morningstar a
copy of the email. His reply should not have surprised me because if he had done just basic research he would have found out that a prosaic
explanation by NASA should have convinced him that he didn't have a case as claimed. But his reply to me did surprise me and I include it here along
with the 3 photos for your judgement.
How many of you disagree with NASA's explanation and accept Morningstar's? And vice versa. Or whatever you think.
Robert Morningstar's reply:
[You keep thinking that way, Eddie...
If it makes you happy...
You certainly prove that"Ignorance is bliss".
Do you even know what mylar looks like?
I certainly do. I worked with it professionally for years, making solar reflectors
And, here's a question for you, why would the astronaut take 3 pictures of mylar?
You are very silly, but I am enjoying and the comments (pro & con), especially your childish "rehash"
of the trash that was first put out by James Oberg.
I told a colleague this morning who reminded me of the same patented Oberg "red herring" this morning. Obeg must have been really despearate to try
to pawn that one on people, but I see some people will believe anything. Like you believing that is "mylar". How could the round shadow of the
moon impinge on a small strip of mylar as seen in the photos (not all of which you've seen)?
Go buy a little mylar, so you know what you're talking about.
Have great New Year...
