---but are they?
Here is a claim:
You can tell Apollo was faked because ... the American flag appears to be flapping as if "in a breeze" in videos and photographs supposedly taken from the airless lunar surface.
Here is a supposed debunking of the claim:
The fact of the matter is ... "the video you see where the flag's moving is because the astronaut just placed it there, and the inertia from when they let go kept it moving," said spaceflight historian Roger Launius, of the Smithsonian'sNational Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C.
The astronauts also accidentally bent the horizontal rods holding the flag in place several times, creating the appearance of a rippling flag in photographs (Apollo 11 moon-landing pictures).
Below is a photo that has been published by NASA to lay claim that the moon landings were real. If you are a thinker. The first thing that seems to be missing is that there are no stars on the horizon. If you have been out in the night, the one thing that you see is stars. Why is the moon any different. It cannot because of the lack of atmosphere, because the higher up a mountain you claim the brighter the stars become. If the moon has no atmosphere, then we should see stars in the background rather than a black screen.
FOUR OBVIOUS DISCREPANCIES THAT SUGGEST
THIS PHOTO WAS NOT TAKEN ON THE MOON
- No Stars
- The shadows are not parallel
- No shadow for the flag
- Short shadow from lunar module at top
SOME OTHER ANOMALIES

The two moon landings have same backdrop as seen when the 2nd photo is superimposed over the 1st photo.
The above is just some of the anomalies that are connected with the proofs that have been presented for men having gone to the Moon. Probably the most perplexing fact is how Collins, Alderich and Armstrong show a lack of celebratory exuberance for having gone to the Moon and, especially, having been the first persons to do so. The claim that they say no stars is bizarre. At the official interview, upon their supposed triumphant return from the Moon, the dejected looking trio were not saying they saw stars. Collins said that he saw no stars. Armstrong said that he saw no stars.
How many more anomalies are there that are associated with what many believe is the MOON HOAX?
