Moon Landing Conspiracy Theorists Are Having Field Day

For conspiracy theorists, it can be akin to the feelings of Christmas morning when a new nugget of information begins making the rounds to help affirm whatever it is they feel strongly about.

That’s what’s going on in the world of those that believe the Moon landing by Apollo astronauts was a staged event that’s been propagated around the world.

As the Daily Mail shares, an image from the final landing has been shared by an eagle-eyed observer, and those that believe the theory are taking it as the latest sign of evidence.

A video has been uploaded to YouTube by a user named Streetcap1. In the video, the user draws attention to an image that has captured his attention. He claims that there’s a ‘stagehand’ visible in the visor of one of the astronauts.

“I thought it looked a bit strange, so I took a picture of it using my software. What we appear to have here is a figure of a human not wearing a spacesuit. There was some dispute back in 2009 of the legitimacy of these photos,” he shared.

Streetcap1 would note that the odd figure in the visor appears to have 'long hair' and is 'wearing some sort of waistcoat.’

“Did we make it to the moon? Where's this guy's spacesuit?” he asks.

His post has captured a ton of attention, and many fellow theorists are on board with the user’s suggestion.

“I thought 'another astronaut' then checked the astronaut in the reflection has NO life support backpack, while the astronaut in the foreground HAS a life support backpack. Good catch, Streetcap1! You continue to impress,” shared one user.

“First I thought this is a camera of some sort, because of the form of the casted shadow. But when I looked into it, the Apollo 17 mission took a camera with a small tripod with them, which is not comparable to this figure,” wrote another commenter.

Of course, there were plenty of other users that saw things completely differently.

“Hey, geniuses - the guy in the reflection is the other astronaut taking the photo,” posted one user.

“It looks to be photoshopped. Notice the circular line around the person, whether adding or removing not my call to make, original negative needs to be analyzed!” said another commenter.

This is one of the more wild conspiracy theories out there, and it continues to have a ton of legs. There are plenty of folks out there that adamantly believe it, and there’s not much that would convince them otherwise.

In essence, the theory alleges that any and all moon landings were completed on a Hollywood soundstage and broadcast to the world. There’s plenty of so-called evidence out there to support that claim, and many of those that buy into it seem to have a tremendous amount of interest in proving it as well.

Absent in the various collections of ‘evidence’ is the answer to a pretty simple question: Exactly how could a conspiracy of such epic proportions be kept silent for all these years with nary a peep from anyone involved?
