Conspiracists contend that chose not to put the stars into the because would have been able to use them to determine whether the photos were taken from the Earth or the , by means of identifying them and comparing their celestial position and to what would be expected for either observation site. Some pictures of the original high quality image are still available, and videos have been released from other missions too, like the Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package. Only about 30 kilograms of lunar meteorites have been found on Earth thus far, despite private collectors and governmental agencies worldwide searching for more than 20 years. The best you can say is: yes, a bit, but not really.
