Wow. Another tired old moon landing hoax thread. I can't even be bothered to argue with these ridiculous theories any more. They've been proven time

comes another one...an ambiguous white blob that apparently might be a cloth, if you squint.
Not saying I believe in the moon hoax business, but you're looking at the wrong part of the picture...
If you look broadly at it you'll see 3 bands of ground - the foreground, the background - and then the midground. they're saying the entire midground
section has cloth laid over it, as where it meets the foreground it looks like shadows being cast from something like cloth.
What seems most odd to me, is that if that if it is 'midground', the moon lander seems to be sitting on the edge of a rather steep slope (sloping away
from the camera, so that the line between midground/foreground exists), yet somehow looks to be standing straight.. Not making any claims - it's
tremendously difficult for peoples eyes to naturally adjust for strange perspective/etc.. but it *seems* (to the easily fooled human eye) like if it
were just a sheet of cloth, the moon lander is sitting half on it and half off it - I dont know if there are any common ways to prove
perspective/angles/etc in such kinds of photos.

Would also say that the midground section seems unnaturally lighter than the rest, perhaps there is a reasonable explanation for that but the fact
that the general tone of the picture is darker at the front/lighter in the background doesnt seem consistent.
Again, not saying I believe one way or the other, just trying to inject some different points of view besides all the old ideas, which lets face it..
neither side is ever going to concede.. of the points that arent clearly plain wrong, theyre just too ambiguous to prove one way or the other.
By the way, with regard to mirrors it's perfectly possible to do unmanned - its not difficult to make one that will return a laser beam to wherever
it came from, using something like a half-sphere. if they were incapable of landing an unmanned system accurately just have it send out a beam when it
arrives to measure back on earth, then align it with servos so that you can accurately measure the position of the mirror on the moon, from then on it
just needs to remain stationary.
