  1. Weren't those from the later Apollo missions? I remember something about the first flag having blown down when the Eagle ascended from the moon.
     
  2. No. They viewed the moon by telescope and could see the shadows.
     
  3. Wasn't it one of the NASA/JAXA orbiters? Although I suppose those are still telescopes.

    "From the LROC images it is now certain that the American flags are still standing and casting shadows at all of the sites, except Apollo 11," LROC principal investigator Mark Robinson wrote in a blog post today (July 27). "Astronaut Buzz Aldrin reported that the flag was blown over by the exhaust from the ascent engine during liftoff of Apollo 11, and it looks like he was correct!"
