Debunking the Conspiracy Theorists
Why can’t you see the stars in the photographs taken on the Moon?
The lunar surface is very bright – brighter than
the brightest day on Earth.
In comparison to the bright surface of the Moon,
the stars are very dim.
Cameras used for the Apollo missions were
designed to photograph activities on the Moon,
not the stars.
The exposures were set for brightly lit surfaces,
not dim objects like stars.
In a nutshell, the stars are there!
They are just to faint to be seen.
In fact, any attempt to capture the stars on film would badly overexpose any
objects on the lunar surface.
