    I was only 13 at the time but I still remember it well. My dad worked for the company that made the ground simulators used to train the Apollo astronauts.

    I was in boot camp at the time. When they landed on the moon we were allowed to watch it on TV.

    The Moon itself presents many mysteries and puzzles. Scientists are still scratching their heads on many aspects of the Moon. I personally find it fascinating that while we know quite a bit about it, there is also much we still don't know... The deeper one starts looking into it, the more fascinating it becomes. https://youtu.be/-2kBRbdGx8I

    You'll never look at the Moon the same way again. Everything in this video is easily verified if you are a skeptic. https://youtu.be/DhTagWzkjHk

    I'm not much of a believer in conspiracy theories.
    There is a lot of information that says it was a fake in 1969.
    I confess that I did not give much importance until the moment I saw the press conference of the date

    Did they come from the moon or from a funeral?
    Something is not right ...

    Not to confuse the various conspiracy theories. Putting aside the theory they were never there, let's focus on the other one.

    "If" they really saw what "some" claim they saw on the Moon, I believe it would be very difficult to appear any other way but as if one just returned from the funeral instead of the Moon. Imagine the moment one comes face to face with proof of intelligent extraterrestrial life and having to suppress that information.

    Many astronauts are either hinting or are openly vocal about extra-terrestrial topic. Gordon Cooper for example, has openly discussed his encounter with a UFO at Edwards Airforce Base. https://youtu.be/4-KAts8vp4I
