In Section 3.3.15 of the Apollo 8 Technical Crew Debriefing Report , Cislunar Navigation and Navigational Star Sightings, one finds the following
statement made by James Lovell;
"During the early part of the flight I could not see anything through the scanning telescope that I could recognize, for instance - a constellation.
I could see several stars, but I couldn't pinpoint them because I didn't know the surrounding stars. As long as we did not move the spacecraft around,
got some distance from the earth and its light, it was possible to see constellations in the scanning telescope. Several factors are involved here.
One, of course, is that you must become dark-adapted. You must be dark-adapted before you can see stars. When you first look through the scanning
telescope, you see nothing but blackness."
So clear enough, and indeed it makes sense. It would have to be so were any of this real. One must be dark adapted to see stars, and so sight them,
and so align an Apollo CM IMU.
Obviously nobody told Alan Shepard that. Well not to worry too much, it is not as though Alan was actually in cislunar space and at risk to go off
course and fly into the sun or anything like that.
Here is Alan Shepard from the Apollo 14 Technical Crew Debriefing Report Section 7.0(7-6)(Caps below in the quote mine)
"During the case of the flight, in almost every case, neither are you dark adapted, nor are you in a position where you have time to get dark adapted
and positively identify the star through the telescope because of the external lighting and particles. So about all you can do in that one is let the
optics drive and if there is a star in there you assume its the right one and take a whack at it and see if it meets the rules. If your platform's
good enough to sight the star, what's the sense of doing it ? Or if you really think you need a star check, then allow yourself enough time in the
flight plan to positively identify it, which means BEING DARK ADAPRTED, no urine dumps and so on. So, although we passed the star checks in every
case, it's the kind of thing that gives you a little confidence but not one we could positively say, "Okay this is star so and so, " like you can do
in the simulator. "
I know, I know, you are thinking, "This is one of the most insanely incriminating things I have ever read as regards Apollo Inauthenticity".
So of course Lovell has it correct, and Shepard goes to the bottom of the class, and were Shepard ever actually in cislunar space aboard an Apollo
craft, armed with that kind of "logic" and star sighting cavalier attitude, he may well have gone not to the bottom of the class , but rather,
straight into the sun.
Of course, were Apollo real, one would have had to have been absolutely certain as regards the star identity when sighting them to align the IMU. As
Alan Shepard was far from certain, not even dark adapted no less, and as Shepard's colleague Lovell would agree with the rest of us, must dark adapt
to sight, and must sight to guide and navigate given the need for absolute accuracy as regards IMU alignment, we see indeed Apollo was not real,
fraudulent. We hare yet another very elegant and absolute proof of Apollo Inauthenticity.
Apollo we know to be fraudulent because we see ever so plainly here that the navigation/guidance system is simply not fundamentally viable. Don't
believe me ? Read it again, and again, and again, it's right there, in Alan Shepard's own words.
