Now, yet another person who likely has gone off half-cocked, and completely ignorant of the science and history of Apollo....let's see. Talking about
the DAC camera, aboard Antares
....two frames of film taken from the Apollo 14 lunar lander in February 1971 may lead some people to believe that's true.
In one frame, the American flag is pointed to the right, while in another frame, it's pointing in another direction — to the left.
First blush? This seems to forget that the flag, once set up, cold STILL BE MOVED, if desired, by any of the Astronauts! Gee....just guessing here,
but is it a simple possibility that, at some point, they turned it, with their hands? Like.....for a better photo opportunity, perhaps? (Well,
fortunately we don't have to rely on this amateur from Canada....there are loads of resources to verify "his" claims, and ascertain their

You can reference the transcript, for time information. During EVA-1, the flag set-up was beginning at around MET (Mission Elapsed Time) of
"Down the Ladder for EVA-1"
114:40:26 Mitchell: Okay. (Pause)
[Mitchell was in shadow as he came down the ladder. The flag deployment, which they will film next, will be in full sunlight and Ed
resets the shutter speed to 1/250th. Ed will mount the 16-mm camera on the MESA.]
That is your target time frame, for the other videos to look for this so-called "anomaly". Also, can pore over the transcripts to read what they
were talking about....and IF they moved the flag for any reason, and made comments about doing so.
Add: Here's another source. The 16mm DAC was taken out, and mounted on the MESA, form what I read in the transcript.
Compared to the Apollo 11 mission, where the DAC was left in the LMP's window, and fimed the EVA from inside the LM.
