Just found this claim:
Fake lunar lander?
About seven years ago I attended a course at the Australian National University in Canberra. One evening, we went to the Mount Stromlo Observatory and had a look through one of the telescopes.
The bloke in charge of the tour mentioned the lunar landings (Feedback, 22/29 December). He said that while the American astronauts were driving around in the lunar lander, some of the astronomers were following their progress on the large optical telescope they have at Stromlo. They could actually see the tracks increasing, albeit very slowly, on the surface of the Moon.
Where have the astronomers involved with these observations been hiding in recent years, or was it just a stunt to impress us science teachers? But perhaps even hard evidence like this is not going to convince the crazies, so why bother?
