Shadow or not even NASA is confused about it,
The NASA Apollo 11 image AS11-37-5437 is one of those bizarre stories that shows beyond a doubt how NASA altered official moon landing images. Our story starts with the Dutch version of the book "The Moon and Beyond" from 1971 by Fred Appel. Image AS11-37-5437 is on display in this book. The first thing you notice is that the 1971 image is mirrored from the later NASA versions. Mirroring, or reversing images is something that seems to be common practice for NASA. The thruster seen in the image AS11-37-5437 is described as the shadow of the thruster on the moon just before the landing. Ralf Rene already pointed out in his book "NASA Mooned America" that this is a very strange shadow. NASA must also have noticed that this could not be a shadow and changed the story and image accordingly. However the NASA archive is in such chaos that you will find many versions of this image, all claimed to be original NASA versions. If any image shows that something is seriously wrong with the Apollo 11 photo material it is AS11-37-5437.
In the Apollo 11 mission report version of the image, seen below, the picture is cropped so that the "shadow" of the thruster on the moon is not seen. The caption reads: "Approach to Landing Site #2 taken from lunar orbit. Crater Maskelyne at lower right. Shadow at lower left thrown by part of spacecraft". They forgot to alter the caption as is still speaks of the shadow cast by the spacecraft on the moons surface. Credit to NASA for image.
Below is the AS11-37-5437 image as shown on the NASA spaceflight website. In this image the thruster is clearly not a shadow as you can see the thruster nozzle. We expect that this version has been altered as the shadow explanation is completely unsustainable. The image has been enhanced so we can see the thruster now. Part of the captin reads: "When this picture was made, the LM was still docked to the Command and Service Modules (CSM). Site 2 is located just right of center at the edge of the darkness".Credit image NASA.
Below you can see the "Apollo Lunar Surface Journal" (ALSJ) version of the image AS11-37-5437 as show today. Part of the caption reads: "with the RCS quad in the lower left corner. When this picture was taken, Neil and Buzz were in the midst of LM Activation". Credit image NASA.

Below you see again a different version that is on display in the ALSJ today. This is completely absurd and it shows beyond a doubt that NASA has altered images. As we mentioned before, all these images are claimed to be the original scans. No wonder the whisper is getting louder that something is wrong with the Apollo photo material. We suspect that this is a result of whistleblowing from within NASA.
End conclusion: none of these images above are real, they are just part of one big cover up. AwE130 does not care if people landed on the moon or not. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to work out that something is really wrong with these image. NASA makes people who support the Apollo photo material look like fools. We are the whisper.
