Apollo 11 - Daring To Dream

Allow me to go off topic for a moment and say this: any attempt to suggest that the Apollo moon ladings were a fabrication via Hollywood and NASA are a display of supreme ignorance, intellectual cowardice, and overall lack of imagination.

I happen to have a background in mathematics and physics and would welcome any challenges to this notion. Simply comment and prepare for humiliation.

Serious question: How do you explain the two light sources for the shadows?

Wow, that was fast! I'm game, and will not make fun of you. Don't know what image you are specifically referring to, but I would venture: The sun, and light from camera and / or LEM.

John, that's me Anon. This is always something that has puzzled me. I can't find the pic at the moment, but it's one where the flag has two shadows. Apparently no flash was used.


p.s. For your other question, about where is everyone? Try posting that question and see what ya get.

I was 14 years old during the time of the Apollo 11 moon landing, and I'll never forget it. It seemed to me that everyone around me was in awe, just as I was.

It was several years later that I learned there were those who believe it didn't really happen. I never understood why that is.

Anon --
So good to hear from you! I believe it was I who asked the question, "Where is everyone."

Hi Bill,

Yeah, I see now that you were the original asker of the question and John was answering, in his way.

To answer that question...well, work and family are pretty well taking up my time this summer, but I always find time to check in daily and read this blog and a few others, including 'Friends of Debbie Key,' but I don't comment too often.

John, I can't seem to find the picture. I had seen it on some documentary years ago and this was one thing that stuck with me...the double shadow of the flag. I don't question the event though.

Silly me, I left out the question mark. "Where is everyone?"

Hi Anon! - Just so you know, I am always glad to see your comments.

You know who I really miss?
Maritime Missy!

I have recently read that the old televised footage of the moon landing had been digitally remastered, removing the grain and making clearer images. It looks like that's what I'm seeing here in this YouTube video.

Hey Bill,

Yeah, I miss Maritime Missy, too.

Hey MM, are you still checking in here from time to time? It would be great to hear from you!
