    So would be the photographs left behind, bleached white by the harsh solar light.

    Also, I read once where the first flags were purchased at a hardware store and hastily erected on a stand....but I could be incorrect with that info.

    One reason you couldn't use the Hubble to look at the moon is that the telescope's chip would be overloaded by the amount of light. I've wondered though if the Hubble could image an Earthlit new moon or whether that amount of light would also overload the sensor.
