NASA Grabs Amazing Moon Landing Site Pics

by Shane McGlaun

I bet that we have all heard the conspiracy theorists that claim we never actually went to the moon. These folks think that the entire Apollo program was filmed on a movie set. Perhaps to help put these theories to rest once and for all, NASA has changed the orbit recently of the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter or LRO to take some of the highest resolution images of the landing sites for the Apollo missions ever.

Apollo 17 Site

The photos cover Apollo missions 17, 12, and 14 and show the descent stages for the missions that landed the astronauts on the moon along with the trails left from the astronauts moving around on the surface and from the LRV they drove around. You can even see where the American flag was left behind on the surface of the moon.

Apollo 14 Site

Of course, there is something new for the conspiracy nuts to latch on to. The pair of photos for each site don’t overlay exactly. The reasons for this is the angle they were taken at and the change in light on the moon’s surface.

Apollo 12 Site

The photos are very cool and you can check out a video explaining the photos below:
