You can't judge genuinely unearthly scenes based on earthside experience.
I've tried to summarize and explain many of these truly bizarre factors in my "99 FAQs About Space UFOs" on my home page www.jamesoberg.com/ufo.html
I stumbled on this video a couple of days ago and found it very interesting...not least because it could explain 'no stars'
on Apollo images. A subject that has sparked off much discussion...
So when I saw your link (again )...I had a quick look for any comments about the no stars thing. Not necessarily about the Apollo
images..but in general...
Don't know if there are any more references but I saw this.....
“It was a real adventure to me, it was a real different impression than doing a walk on the moon in gravity,” he explained. “I floated out of that hatch, and it was a wonder, it was almost euphoria. I could look off to the right, down in the lower right position, like at a 4 o’clock position on a clock, there was the earth. It was a new earth, it was just was thin little sliver of a crescent of blue and white. And I rolled around to the left, and at about the 10 or eleven o’clock, there was the moon, gigantic in size. Earth was 180,000 miles away, the moon was 60, 000, and there was this enormous almost full moon towering over us,
and everywhere else you looked was the blackness of space.”
The glare of the sun drowned out all stars, and Duke was overwhelmed with the feeling of being surrounded by nothingness. “You felt detached, you felt like you were not a participant, but as if you were watching an audience and used the stage as the universe.”
you say..."the glare of the sun drowned out all the stars"
Is this true...or is it because the source of light...ie sun and stars, cannot be seen in the visible spectrum (outside the earth's atmosphere)?
