Where did they Go?

Ask any hoax supporter this question...

"If the astronauts didn't go to the moon then where did they go instead?"

The usual reply is that they reached earth orbit after launch and stayed there. "The moon trip was fake but not the orbiting bit." The problem with this, is that anybody can just look up at the sky and see satellites passing over. Try it yourself, they look like moving stars. The Apollo command module, service module and lunar module together was a substantial size. It would have been the brightest satellite of the time. You couldn't miss it.

Go to  www.satellitespotting.co.uk for more information on how to see satellites. I have a complete book on it.

Peter Bassett of the Astronomy Roadshow has recorded many satellites with an image intensifier. There are two on this clip. The first is about as large as a van, the second the size of a trash can. It just demonstrates how easy they are to see. The Apollo-LM configuration would have stood out like a beacon; brighter than any other satellite at the time; far brighter than these two. But nobody saw the Apollo vehicle once it left earth orbit...
