The footage in question shows a lunar roving vehicle (LRV) being driven on the surface of the Moon.
The LRV was used on the last three missions of the Apollo programme in 1971 and 1972.
But according to conspiracy theorists, some footage is missing, as a few seconds into the video, it skips just as the vehicle changes course.
The video has been released on YouTube by UFO channel Streetcap1, who last week said he had found footage showing a ‘stagehand’ without a space suit reflected in one of the astronaut’s visors.
He suggested the latest footage could have been cut because a number of ‘stagehands’ in the ‘studio’ could have had to jump in front of the camera to give the buggy a push.
The video was picked up by conspiracy theory website Disclose.TV, Dailystar.co.uk reports.
One reader called Grey agreed why it may have been cut.
He commented: “What I think is that the rover got stuck turning and a lot of guys ran out on the stage set and pushed it to turn it fully.
“That cut is 100% proof they used photoshop to remove worrisome footage from the public’s view.”
Conspiracy theorists have also argued dirt flies up far too quickly from the vehicle due to the moon’s different gravitational force.
Grey added: “It should be much slower to fall, and there should be some continuous dust clouds from smaller particles that should not fall for a few minutes, yet, all the dirt particles are on the ground in just a few seconds.”
Some viewers were less than impressed by the theory.
Alexander Rahirant posted on YouTube: “Simply dust coming off the top of the wheel while spinning.
“Sometimes we don’t have to take the conspiracy too far, please.”
Daniel Lattieri added: “Did he loose a tyre or did he kick up enough moon dust to make it look like he did?
“Either way I don’t see the big deal.”
But, another poster thought it might be fake footage.
They said: “The dirt and dust is immediately pulled back to the surface of the Moon, yet men float.
“I believe we went to the Moon, but I can see them recreating some footage appropriate for the public. Our tiny brains and small world views can’t handle the truth.”
Another added: “I don’t believe the truth will ever really be known.”
The 48th anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the lunar surface took place in July, but many conspiracy theorists across the globe remain convinced it was the biggest cover up of all time.
Moon hoax conspiracy theorists say a desperate President John F Kennedy, who wanted to beat the Russians in the space race to the moon, ordered the production of a series of films in top-secret studios to make it look like NASA astronauts made it to the lunar surface.
At the heart of the theory are claims that the radioactive Van Allen belt around Earth would have been lethal to fly through.
It remains one of the biggest conspiracy theories of all time.
