Apollo Investigation


We are regularly asked the same or similar questions here we address those most frequently asked.

Q: Can you clarify your claims about shadow directions on the lunar surface?

A: This is a very complex subject. Anomalous shadows in the Apollo photographic record fall into two main categories: 1) inappropriately diverging shadows, and 2) inappropriately converging shadows.

When the entirety of an image is illuminated by the parallel rays of the Sun horizontally across a scene (rather than from an artificial light source) the objects in the distance as well as the objects in the foreground cast shadows in the same direction. This applies of course on flat terrain.

There are numerous examples of these anomalous shadows in articles to be found under the Apollo Investigation. Did we land on the Moon? is a good place to start as well as Apollo Photo Anomalies and Jack White's Apollo Photographic Studies.
