Well yes Apollo astronauts have said they couldnt see stars in daytime on the surface. It's in the post landing press conference.
I am going on what high altitude pilots have saif in interviews as i posted above(couple pages back) and another opst in a Military Mig 25 forum from
comments made by an ex mig 25 pilot - again below: The first batch of pilots to be trained were Wing Commander A.J.Singh, Squadron Leaders D. Lazarus,
S.L.Sud, J.S. Grewal, besides Flight Lieutenants R.E.Ketkar and Lt B.S.Khalsa.
"When you fly at those altitudes there's a sudden change in environment. Now, you see the sky as blue, when you go to those heights the sky is dark.
You can see the stars during the day-light, you can see the curvature of the earth. Then you suddenly feel you don't belong to this earth, you don't
want to come down to land. You want to stay there. There's a distinct feeling of aloofness that you don't belong to this earth," said Air Vice
Marshal J.S.Grewal (Retd), one of the pilots of the pioneering batch, which trained in the then Soviet Union.
Master Warrant Officer (MWO) Desraj, the technical maintenance person who received training in the USSR and has served with the aircraft ever since
said that he had no words to express his feelings. He was emotional on account of the decommissioning as he had seen the aircraft right from the
beginning and had served in it.
Six of the eight MiG25s will be flown to the National Defence Academy, the Air Force Academy, AFS Kalaikunda, AFS Hindan, AFS Palam and AFS Jodhpur to
be installed and preserved as heritage pieces to inspire future officers during training. Two were lost in accidents.
the other was from an officer in the USAF that flew Blackbirds and is quite credible and not related to UFO / Conspiracy discussion. Did you see that
post as well, if not i will repost.
so i am going off that. If they could see stars in daytime flights at altitudes of 85,000ft then i dont see why astronauts in space cannot.
