Nasa has released a colour photo of Apollo17
Forty years after the last men walked on the moon in 1972



The last men to walk on the moon were Eugene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt and they collected 100 kilos of moon rock

Even though I know they aren't fake, the hills in the background look so out of place.

Never the less, great pictures, maybe I'll be able to get a few myself if moon tourism ever kicks off! (And If I ever make a few hundred million
)

Okay I have never been a believer in the moon hoax theory, so I ask this objectively not knowing the answer.

In this photo why dose there appear to be two light sources?

The Light play on the Flag appears to becoming from the right front as its shadow is slightly behind it on the left. while the light on the astronaut appears to be coming from the right rear as his shadow is on the left yet slightly ahead of him ?

not saying its fake just an observation.

A combination of a couple of things. Perspective and uneven terrain. It doesn't take two light sources.


But two light sources do produce two shadows.

If that were the case, you would have TWO shadows for each the flag and the astronaut.

Right?

You have read too many HOAX threads.

Pop quiz... how many shadows / highlights are on the objects on the photo if there is 2 light sources?
That kinda answers that.

[add] Oh nvm, I was slow

This photo is so fake, it isn't even funny. You can see the line traversing the screen,
separating the foreground from the backgroud (a stanley kubrick cinematic effect,
i believe). This is not a natural representation.

I wish more and more
that I could go there and
see it myself

Im pretty sure I said In the post, and since you quoted it im assuming you read it, that I diddnt think it was fake I was just curious.

Alsp, doesn't the directions of the shadows, as seen reflected in the spacedmans visor,
contradict the direction of the other direct shadows observed?

Bull. It's what you get any time there is a rise in the foreground, then a slope downward beyond the rise (where it can't be seen) then terrain sticking up in the distance. It's a natural effect that anyone with a camera can replicate at a nearby park.

Here is another example that my wife took when we were on holiday:


Note the disconnect between the grassy foreground and the distant background.

If you can guess where we are, you can figure out why I'm holding the fancy axe.

No they do not. Again, this is something that you can recreate for yourself using afternoon sunlight and a convex reflector.

These and all of the thousands of other photos taken by the Apollo astronauts have been freely available on the 'net for many years.

Have a gander at:

The Project Apollo Archive
The Apollo Image Atlas
The Apollo Lunar Surface Journal

Enjoy!

Duh. It is unatural because dum dum dum da its a different planet/moon! It is out of place because oh my, you have no frame of reference because you have never been on a moon. You guys are really reaching.

Yep. One of those. Actually, recognizing the axe could give you the location.

Hint: We'll be seeing more of them this December.
