Why does it look like night time in all the Apollo moon landing photos?

Re: Why does it look like night time in all the Apollo moon landing photos?
in the photos it looks much darker on the moon than it does on earth during the day. When I look at the moon with my telescope I need to use a filter to darken the image because its so bright. These ideas seem to contradict themselves.

Then you must ask yourself what properties Earth has that the Moon lacks.

It's not rocket science... mostly.

Because they went there at night so it wouldn't be so hot!! Doesn't everybody know this????

Just like pictures taken from the ISS or Shuttle all have a black sky background. Must have to do with the ozone around earth, which is blue.

Re: Why does it look like night time in all the Apollo moon landing photos?
because for stanley kubrick to pull off the front screen projection trick, the backdrop had to be completely blacked out or the hoax would've been obvious. also, they couldn't put stars in the sky cause astronomers on earth would have caught it and exposed the lie

Huh?

The DEFINITION of front projection is "background."

Kubrick used it in the Dawn of Man sequence, and almost every shot was of sky and distant terrain.

(Which were high-quality stills shot by location scouts in Kenya for that very purpose, in fact.)

Kubrick had other issues with the technique, but being unable to provide a background is not one of them!

Re: Why does it look like night time in all the Apollo moon landing photos?
I'm thinking because of lens filtering. Direct sunlight unfiltered could probably damage their cameras. This being without the Earth's atmosphere supposedly.

The moon does have a reflective surface as we all can see from Earth at night.

Too complicated.

No answer is necessary when the question has poor assumptions.

It does NOT look like night-time in the Apollo surface photographs.

What it looks like is people in white suits on a grey surface lit by a single source at a low angle (the sun, not that long after lunar dawn) on a wordlet without an atmosphere.

In about a half of the pictures, the terrain is exposed properly. In the remainder, the camera has been adjusted to either capture detail in shadows, or the white suits and equipment in direct light.

Shooting up sun, for instance, the camera is usually set to use the reflected light, most of the terrain is in deep shadow, and highlights on both terrain and equipment are over-exposed. You can do this yourself on Earth by shooting a subject framed by a sunset.

Shooting down sun, shadow-hiding makes the terrain appear smoother, but the relative brightness of the white suits and equipment, and the flat angle of the light, means the ground will be relatively darker.

Because it's daytime on the moon. In order for night time to happen, you need something to block the sun. (a planet, a moon, etc) They are in broad daylight with nothing blocking the sun and the moon is acting as a giant reflector. Same with traveling in cislunar space. Unless something is blocking the sun, everything looks black. Also, in order to get photos of the surface of the moon during the missions, they had to adjust the camera exposures to daylight conditions. To capture the stars on film would require 30+ second exposure times.

Watch any on board rocket launch footage and you will see the sky turn to starless black when the rocket leaves the atmosphere. You can also watch high altitude vehicle footage and also see that the sky is starless black.
Watch "James May in Space" for an example.
