    I recently saw photos of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the moon with the flag of the Scottish rite and they're own Masonic aprons as well, thought it was kinda cool

    Neil Armstrong was not a Mason, although his father was. Aldrin did, in fact, take a Scottish Rite flag, but any aprons shown in any pictures were photoshopped in.

    Should have clarified about the aprons and flag not being there, when I'm responding from my smartphone I tend towards very brief posts. Wanted tp highlight TL2....

    Here is a composite gif that shows the original NASA photo alternating with the faked version:

    The red ellipse was added to show how a connector got "morphed" into part of the left glove in the fake. The original picture should be very well known. It appears as the cover of the Life magazine "To the Moon and Back" 1969 special issue.

    The apron picture is a crude fake.

    This app is on my iPhone and can't see the pic but I will follow up on the link, why do you think Texas has claimed that part of the moon under its jurisdiction?

    Because the first Freemason on the moon brought authorization from the Grand Lodge of Texas to do so.

    Because there was very tight control over what was allowed to be taken on the flights; they needed to account for every ounce. They have an inventory of everything that was taken. No Masonic aprons.

    Yes I know they brought authorization, but I think there a deeper philosophical meaning behind bringing the craft to the moon

    Freemasonry is not restricted by race, by nation, or by planet. How is that?
