    Of course not, as the conspiracy theorists will simply claim that any LRO images showing Apollo artifacts are themselves faked.

    Ironically, the people making fringe claims with photos attached have the same problem.

    haha oh man, heard this on another forum and made me laugh

    " There not being a McDonalds or a Starbucks on the moon is probably the most convincing evidence that America has never been there."

    I spoke with a true beleiver in the conspiracy. He is more convinved than every
    that it was faked because "why else would they be spending millions now to
    keep the cover alive?"

    Even if you could take them there personally they'll say the site was a more
    recent fake to fool THEM.

    You can't win with these people.

    And if NASA doesn't take pictures of it, they claim that's part of the coverup too. Things like that imply to me that this is a purposeful hoax. Sometimes its tough to tell the difference between a true believer and someone who is just trying to sell a book.
