NASA stands for 'Never A Straight Answer"
The Apollo astronauts were supposed to be navigating with stars by sight, (but with a computer), If I recall correctly.
"As a backup, and for segments of the mission where ground tracking was not practical, an on-board inertial navigation system was used. Astronauts periodically used a sextant to sight on stars and the horizons of the Earth and Moon to align the inertial system, and to verify the accuracy of the Earth-based tracking data."https://www.ion.org/museum/item_view.cf ... =5&iid=293
In the BBC interview above, Armstrong seams to be clear about not seeing stars on the Lunar surface nor seeing them during the trip to the Moon from the Earth, but not his fellow astronaut Michael Collins:
"Michael Collins never set foot on the moon. As Armstrong and Aldrin descended to the lunar surface in the Eagle lander, Collins orbited around the moon in the command module of Apollo 11, called Columbia. For a day he circled, waiting for his comrades to lift off again. As he passed behind the dark side of the moon, his communication with Earth was totally cut off.
In his autobiography "Carrying the Fire: An Astronaut's Journeys," Collins wrote about that isolation with surprising enthusiasm:
"I feel this powerfully -- not as fear or loneliness -- but as awareness, anticipation, satisfaction, confidence, almost exultation. I like the feeling. Outside my window I can see stars
-- and that is all. Where I know the moon to be, there is simply a black void, the moon's presence is defined solely by the absence of stars."http://www.ibtimes.com/michael-collins- ... ire-759261
What we can state is that we have no real photography of the celestial bodies from high altitude nor from outer space. In fact, the Apollo astronauts did no real experiments as far as I can tell from the ample video evidence. They also didn't bother to do any astronomical experiments or observations of all the other stars they should have seen, nor did they take any such photography from the Lunar surface.
