Being in denial is what I think most expect from the we did not land on the Moon crowd. No surprise here.
At 50km it was still kind of hard to make out the lander but the improved resolution in the 25km images makes a difference, they are detailed enough
to even see what looks like the feet on the lander so it's not some indistinct shape.
The rover does show the wheels turned to the left as the article claims, but the overall outline isn't as clear as the outline of the lander.
Now we hear the "other" conspiracy theories, like they faked the moon landing in 1969 but went back later to put these objects on the moon...but
wait, they still had to get through the Van Allen belt to do that which the conspiracy theorists claimed was impossible?
It's entertaining to see the denial some people experience, even when shown proof.

second thing that seems weird is why park the buggy over there unless more "science packages" are over there? more we are not seeing??
suspect the astronauts had a secret discussion which wasn't recorded about where they could park the rover so that four decades later, somebody would
ask why they parked it there, but that's just a theory, I have no proof
Seriously though, I suspect the boot tracks are most visible when multiple tracks cross the same area. A single set of tracks might not show up too
well, you can't expect all boot tracks to show up at this resolution, only dense areas of tracks.
