    interesting isn't it?
    But the angle of the shadows i quite large. the shadow of the pole is probably all you would see.

    If you look at all the other shadows there all going directly to the right, it would seem to me there would be a shadow, even on something as thin as that flag pole. And really, the other shadows are pretty vivid, i mean you would really think there would be a nice shadow coming off that pole. I mean even on things as small as the littlest mound of dirt in the shot have a niceshadow. And you dont even see any stars. And i will say this too, there would have been a problem with wind and what not if it was fake. Am i the only one who thinks they see a another pole/tube/bar extending from the top of the flag pole as if to hold the flag out as apose to it hanging or wipping in the wind.

    why would they airbrush the flag out?
    if it were in a studio all the shadows would be uniform for everything including the flag...

    this was way before computer generated images anyway.

    This has been argued over a thousand times but do relized reflection of shadow will not be the same on the moon because of its orbit around earth- it rolls from what i have read where you really have no north south west or eastern points so directly defining this could have been the cause of the some being at 90 degrees north 0 but for more arguemental sakes our astronautical friend heres shadow dosnt line in with the spaceship which i certainly cannot explain- but the whole flag thing ive heard the full run down on that one from experts in their fields - but no one has every answered why the ship and the astronauts shadow do not go in the same direction - only thing i could thing is the size of the moon is so small the curvature to the terrain causes the shadows to appear not concurrent - but just for simple thought -

    also for a sidenote - erik & udt - if the government was really worried about this one they would have removed all false images with chopped ones by pros and denied any one elses copied claiming them to be false and only theirs true ! - i dont think the government has any thing to hide on this one landing on the moon- hoax or not big whoops we walked on the moon - if you really want to know take a high powered telescope and look at the moon every day and maybe u can see the flag lol - there are plenty of high powered telescopes in our universities to catch a glimpse of this! just food for thought

    also you have to remember that a shadow of something high up off the ground wont be as defined as something right on the ground, due to other light around it.
