Do you see skulls in the crinkles of your sheets at night. With enough preconceived expectation, we can *see* anything we want in almost formless objects. jmoho

Yes, those are definitely alien skulls from an alien graveyard that Neil Armstrong has walked right through, and then NASA has published photos of.

Well, either that or they're just rocks that very vaguely resemble skulls, anyway.

It's probably skulls though, nice one.

Not sure if you would believe this. But this picture clearly shows a small skull on the surface of the moon as Neil Armstrong Steps on the moon on Apollo 11.


"Clearly" I think has been very strongly misused, I'm afraid... that doesn't clearly show anything .. it blurredly shows some moon rock however.

Not being mean, honest.. but "clearly" is the worst possible word for that photo.

You're seeing shadows cast.. nothing more

They wouldn't leave a human skull lying around the Tonopah Test Range.
They just wouldn't.

I decided to check out the Apollo 11 pictures as there was this
that shows some figure chasing on of the astronauts.

Also in the first picture, Neil is clearly point out at this skull.

I am looking up the reference for that photo, and was occurring at the time. It is AS-40-5873, and they were erecting the Solar Wind Experiment at that time. Here is a link to the Apollo 11 Photography Index --- photo 40-5873 was in camera magazine 'S'.


The cable you see is for the TV camera.....it was one of the first tasks in the Surface Operations Plan for Armstrong to perform.

At this link, go to pages 31 -33 of the "Nominal Timeline" charts to see the activities and how they were ordered and planned.


Here at the Surface Operations Overview from the Lunar and Planetary Institute website is a map showing the arrangement of the landing zone.

The Solar Wind Experiment is abbreviated 'SWC' for "Solar Wind Collector"....it's the vertical sheet ina framework, in the AS-40-5873 photo.

That is a HOAX!

AND, not even from Apollo 11.

Surprised anyone is gullible enough to be fooled by that.

Yes, after the posting of that hoaxed YouTube video.....yes indeed.

Shall we report?

And the place where the skull was noticed has been dug up in this next picture.

Thanks for the info.

Is that the same camera that followed the lander as it took off?

If so, how was the camera able to track the lander as it lifted off skywards?

I have not said this video is genuine or not. Instead of looking at other Apollo pictures, after seeing this video I thought why not start analyzing the pictures from Apollo 11.

Oh to be a gullible newbie again....the thrill of thinking every known hoax is new and fresh and real. That you are the only person to ever find this stuff before....

Every time I walk through a graveyard and see random skulls lying there,I look down and oddly enough I'm convinced it looks like a piece of rock from the Moon or Mars.

Is this normal or should I seek help?

Also in the first picture, Neil is clearly point out at this skull.

A subsequent detailed analysis of the voice recordings of this mission has revealed the astronuat in question exclaiming "look at that tiny little skull over there, that little feller were'nt no bigger than a squirrel!"

This reference to "no bigger than a squirrel" was used in the movie "Swing Blade". And we all know this movie rivals "The Shining" in hidden NASA inuendo.

The mystery just keeps getting deeper and more intriquing

Finally, I found a picture that shows couple of stars in the sky from a Moon Photo... The larger one is blue and there is a faint one below.

What's funny is that I do not see the stars in another picture of the same area.

Nope. That TV camera (Apollo 11) did not have any remote control from Mission Control on Earth. Only three did....the three on Apollo 15, 16 and 17. Mission Control could pan and tilt and zoom and control the iris of the lens using their controls.

So, the lift-offs shown on YouTube (or elsewhere) are from 15, 16 and 17. (The Data Acquisition Camera or 'DAC' footage from inside the LM is available for all the missions).


There is one guy who was responsible for getting the timing correct .... because of the time lag due to the distance (about 1.3 seconds one-way at the speed of light, for signal commands to transmit to the camera from the Earth....plus another 1.3 seconds for the guy on Earth to see the results of his commands...s about a 2 1/2 second time-lag) it was not an easy task. His name was Ed Fendell.

(I say "was", have no idea if he is still alive today....he was 39 in 1971. I found this interview with him, from 2000: Oral History Transcript - Edward I. Fendell).


They designed the camera for 15, 16 and 17 to mount on the LRV (Lunar Rover), as well as on a tripod mount. Also, for those missions, the TV camera was different than the previous missions. These were built by RCA, whereas the ones previously were made by Westinghouse.

Here: RCA J-Series
Ground-Commanded Television Assembly (GCTA)
Used on Apollo's 15, 16, & 17


From the website The Cameras of Apollo


First use of the RCA camera, mounted on the LRV that was left behind, was Apollo 15....no attempt to tilt up, just to view the lift-off as an "outside observer":


(Edit)...Actually, just read his interview...on Apollo 15 the camera tilt motor froze up he said...camera would't move).


Here, he tilts up to follow, but it's not quite right (**):

(**) (Also, from his interview....the Rover wasn't positioned right to be able to get the view with the camera that he needed. He said that for Apollo 17 he made it clear that he'd "kill them" when they got back if they didn't park the Rover in the right place!
)

Finally, Apollo 17:



As you see, he pre-planned it to include the tilt up to follow, and the zoom out to keep the spacecraft in the frame better.

Added: He also used the zoom function a lot to be able to see where to pan the camera, for other parts of the EVA operations.
