    Hello again!
    At this website: http://www.aulis.com/jackstudies_0.html
    I saw an image which claims that the alleged Sun shown is actually a light bulb: Claim.

    I am not an expert in analyzing photography so cannot say much, only that, the lens flares do not look like bulbs, I mean the photos that thousand of people take of the Sun shows the same lens flares.

  3. I've seen a variation on this theme claiming that the sun was far too large in another Apollo 12 image (AS12-46-6739) when compared with similar photos taken on Earth. I altered the levels in it to produce this:

    You can pretty much take anything claimed on the Aulis site with a dose of salt way in excess of your daily recommended amount.

    Well that explains the lens flares, but would not "bulb" or any sort of lightning also create lens flares? I do not know much about photography so I cannot grasp the idea of a "bulb" and so cannot conclusively analyze.

    It would take a big lightbulb to produce ~1kW per square metre radiant power over the entire earth.

    What I see is that we and the conspirators get the same result when messing with the images, and with that same result they say it is some sort of artificial lightning and we say that it is the Sun.

    Point?

    An impossibly big lightbulb.

    I know that "impossibly big" thing, but he mentioned Earth. What does Earth have to do with the claim of "artificial lightning suggesting set in Apollo missions".

    Also I said earlier:"Well that explains the lens flares, but would not "bulb" or any sort of lightning also create lens flares? I do not know much about photography so I cannot grasp the idea of a "bulb" and so cannot conclusively analyze."

    We deal with different levels of theories here. The OP is really about space flight photos and videos being staged on a set. But there are also people who think the sun itself is actually small and close. Some even going as far as a "Truman Show" scenario.

    A bulb would create lens flare. The problem with this claim is that they don't actually compare the image to a bulb, or a very bright disk, or the sun. So they are just going with a vague impression of a modified photo. It's useless as evidence, and not really worth addressing.

    Although that said, it can be fun to try to duplicate images like this.

    The conspirator was talking about this website: http://www.apolloarchive.com/apollo_gallery.html.
    I also cannot find that frame but also notice there are a lot of other frames missing. Not all are uploaded, so it is just not that frame.

    I strongly agree with this part. The images taken by people of Sun on a daily basis shows the same thing. You are right they really never compare that with the photo showing flares from a bulb. I mean to me the photo looks very normal, and even the enhancement done by the conspirator shows nothing suspicious or even remotely a resemblance to a bulb. Google search shows hundreds of pictures of the Sun with the same effect, so effectively there is nothing wrong with the photo.
    A very vague claim.

    A web site changing what it hosts over ten years is hardly suspicious. The file is available in many other places.

    The conspirator has no image showing whether it was there in the first place or not. This picture can be found on a lot of other websites:

    A similar photo: https://archive.org/details/AS12-47-6998 (The tiff format is more than 46 MB so very high resolution; many more similar photos are there for conspirators to analyze).

    I'm sorry, I should have read more carefully. I was thinking of the "everything is a hologram/faked" thing, rather than a staged photo.
