SUMMARY: During the Apollo era of spaceflight, many US spacecraft and vehicles were left on the Moon when the astronauts returned home. For the first time in more than 30 years, we'll get a chance to see them again when NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter arrives at the Moon in 2008. It will be equipped with a camera capable of resolving the surface of the Moon down to half a metre (1.6 feet). Some of the larger structures on the Moon are 9 metres (30 feet) across, so they should be easy to spot by the orbiter.

I don't suspect it will change the opinion of any of the HBers, they'll just say that NASA faked these pictures too.

Since they see man-made objects in nature, then why not the other way around.
That's no lander, it's a rock.
