Shadows not lining up in the same direction, yet the only light they had was sunlight. So how is it that there we several shadows cast in many different directions?
Several Photo's of the astronauts and the lunar landing machine had the sun directly behind them, yet the photos showed amazing detail when they should have been only silhouettes.
Ever strolled along the beach during a full moon? Unless you were alone, chances are being able to see clearly was the least of your concerns. A full moon can be very bright. Sometimes, even bright enough to cast dim but discernable shadows.
Now imagine that moon as being roughly eight times larger, with a much much higher albedo (reflects light better), and there is no atmosphere to refract that reflected light. Imagine that and you'll have a good idea of what the astronauts saw from Luna - except, of course, the "moon" constantly hanging over their heads was called Earth. And from where they stood, it never sets. Even during an "Earth eclipse," when the moon was directly between the sun and Earth, the huge difference in size would mean only a small portion of the light from Earth would be blocked. Essentially, the bright side of the moon goes from bright to brighter, but is never dark.
I watched about ten minutes of the show and, at first, just laughed. I turned it off, though, when I felt myself actually growing angry, a typical reaction when I feel our collective intelligence is being grossly insulted. Garbage. Pure, unadulterated garbage.
