However, some Moon landing deniers think they’ve spotted a strange figure in one of the 1972 Moon mission photos.
The image was taken during the Apollo 17 mission.
Conspiracy theorists claim to see an anomaly in one of the astronaut’s helmet visors.
A YouTube video titled “Reflection in a Visor. Where’s the reflection of the camera taking the photo?” claims the “figure” seen in the visor is a “stagehand”.

Despite the video being posted in 2017, it has been known to recirculate online.
A voiceover on the YouTube video claims that the object in the visor is a man that’s not wearing a spacesuit.
They’re trying to suggest that the Moon landing was staged and filmed on Earth.
The narrator says: “You can see some sort of, it looks like a man, back in the early ’70s, long hair, wearing some sort of waistcoat-type thing.”
However, lots of people have taken to the comments to debunk these claims.
Some people think the object is a rock and others think it’s the distorted reflection of another astronaut.
