Were the Moon Landings stage on a Nevada Opal Field?
Many of the Apollo moon photographs have a striking similarity to an opal field. Here in Australia we have many opal fields and I have worked on several of them. The images below show how close the settings are to the Moon pictures. It would be very easy to use the contours of an opal field and remove any signs of life, to give the impression of a moon scape.
Furthermore, in a number of the Apollo images, there are structures and objects that standout to me and most likely to anyone who has spent some time in an opal mining area, as being a part of opal mining. Such as; rusty pipes, corrugated roofing iron and square post holes.
An opal field.
Remove the trees and weeds and you have a moonscape.
Remove the signs of life and adjust the contours and we have a almost ready made moonscape. Film here at night when the moon is new and we could create any type of misdirection.
More opal mines
The Moon or an opal field? Here we see, as in all the Moon images, well rounded 'hills'. How can a feature on the Moon be well rounded when there is and has never been rain fall? Only weathering can produce this effect. Impact craters have sharp walls with a large array of different sized blast rock sizes. The only other explanation is Crustonics.
