Um, wheres this star you speak of? Or am I just being blind? There were no stars in the pictures from the moon because the surface was so bright that you can't see the stars... damn glare.

Interesting image, yes.

I started to think about the windows on the Apollo craft, and the Hasselblad lenses also.

Is it possible that due to the brightness of the moon, the contrast of dark space, and the multiple glass lenses and windows (dont know if they were one piece or laminated), that the image is the result of light reflecting off a lens and back into the window (or within two lense elements within the camera lens), where it was captured by the film?

As MM said if the colours are inverted you can see it as an arrow shaped object and I have cicled the 'star' in black. The 'star' could be the command module or whatever its called.

Hey, Zanzibar, that's cool. Good work.

In those days [way back in the 60s] there was not the quantity of space JUNK that there is now.

But, I could only make a guess, like everybody else.

But, intuitively, it doesn't appear to have any Life attached to it. Shrug.

Hello all. I originally found that object in the AS15 image, and notified Mr. Strieber, who posted it on his site Unknown Country. The full image was posted on 10/10/04 on the Project Apollo website.
www.apolloarchive.com...
An enlarged higher resolution version, other than the one posted on this site can be found here:
img.photobucket.com...
I have no idea what it could be, but I am confident it is an object in the frame and not some kind of image defect. To support this, just look at the previous frame #AS15-84-11252. Although the object is hard to see it does exist. Here is a cropped markup of that image:
img.photobucket.com...
Both images can be found on the Project Apollo website (No direct link available) in the image archive. Just go to the second page of AS-15 images.

What about the image I showed? It clearly shows both parts link together to fit exactly - this can't be a camera defect. It's an object for sure.

I ran it through some photoshop filters, not sure what it is, but it is not natural. I also uncovered two more bodies on the horizon, are they stars? If so, why are they not visible in the original photo?




EDIT: doh!! beat to the punch by an above poster

Well, I don't see the mention artifact in that image. Why?

Well usually photographs don't 'mention' anything. But you can always make 'something' from nothing.

Yea, I figure as much. I was able to find two of the points in relation to the enigma, but not the item itself.

not too sure but

didnt anyone notice the shadows/light that 'seems' to be on this object

are the exact oppisite of the shadows on the moons surface?

if the object is an 'asteroid' i would expect the lighted sides to be on the other side of the rock;
but ODDLY lol....the light is on the wrong side!!

but anyhow

thinking about it some more;
there could be a million different explanations
and maybe my perspective is limited

maybe im wrong but its just speculation
something to consider....

I took this Movie file:
Rotating Earth

Then played it until the Atlanting ocean was pretty much centered.
And clipped this image out.





Image was resized to match the anomaly size.
I blurred it a little , then made it grayscale.

Here they are, side by side..



I believe it's EARTH as well.
I think it's possible, especially if you were to consider
that my image contained no clouds
I didn't want to add any shaping to the image.
The Apollo image looks mostly cloudless too.

Any opinions on this?

Well its a little small to be Earth. Here is the picture Bill Anders took from Apollo 8.

Size would be relative to the lens they were using at the time.
We'd have to know that the cameras were set up identically to make that a fair comparison.

I saw something interesting with this anomaly:



This is the anomaly with the two segments moved horizontally together. It is also zoomed in to double size.

Looks fairly interesting, as the two parts fit exactly.


The two parts fit exactly. Like plate tektonics..
Africa and the Americas DO look like they fit together.

Thats the problem with the whole thread. The picture they are using has been so distorted and blown up who knows what it is.

Still,

What is the best guess then?

Earth?
Smudge on the lens?
reflection from inside the Spacecraft?
Other, unknown spacecraft?
A piece of shielding knocked loose from the LM or CM?


My opinion is that it's earth...at a low exposure, and slightly out of focus..

OH, one other question, DID the astronauts use any IR sensitive film in thier Hassleblad Cameras? I'm prett sure, it was available..

I don't believe it's Earth - when has Earth been seen (both coasts shown without clouds in someone elses previous post)?
Don't believe it's a reflection - the two parts fit perfectly.
Other, unknown spacecraft - Nope, i would say an asteriod.
