All i can say to that is; their 'clean room' wasn't very clean now, was it?
All those airlocks, micron filters etc, and these bloody great lumps get into the camera? Sloppy, i call it.

Is it possible that the image in question could have been overlapped onto other images in order to make it seem like it appeared in several other photos thereby making it appear to be something on the lens. Could they have done this to cover up for their 'mistake'?

The original image is from a scan made at Arizona State University. What you have "found" is dirt which was caught in the metric camera on an Apollo mission.l
Really "Dirt caught in metric camera" that causes the the negative to show a shadow of said piece of dirt? Er I don't think so !
What is SpaceArchive?
SpaceArchive.net is an archive containing hundreds of images pertaining to manned space exploration, from the early Mercury to Apollo-Soyuz missions.
Each image is downloadable at the best quality now available, and is accompanied with the shot information, such as mission, date on which the photo was taken or released, title, description, etc.
Great attention was paid to provide a good search engine, with many search filters that allow good performance.
SpaceArchive.net is always in search for new pictures not yet present on the archive so, if you are in possession of images that can't be found in SpaceArchive.net, do not hesitate to contact me or e-mail me a good scan accompanied with all available data for the image.
Many pictures were restored by me, restoring the original colors, enhancing the contrast, removing scrubs, scratches and dust maks. I hope that this work helps to remember in the best way the epic of space exploration and the men who were involved.
