Rik Van Nutter,
This film is based on the popular pulp novel series Perry Rhodan. The story begins with the spacecraft Stardust being launched from Earth to explore the moon in an attempt to discover new deposits of a new element, much more powerful than Uranium or any other source of energy ever discovered. The plot takes a split approach with the Stardust being taken over by a mysterious force, causing it to land on the Dark side of the Moon, and out of contact with Earth.

At 11:30, you can see that it was partly cloudy when they filmed the scenes of the astronauts disembarking their spacecraft. The reflection of the clouds and sun are clearly seen on Perry's helmet visor. See more »

It is true that roughly the first 1/3 of the film is spent on the moon and that is the best part of the show. The second 2/3 is spent on earth in Africa and only about the first half of that section is good. It's the story that starts falling flat after giving us a pretty decent start.
This film, along with any "B" sci-fi, you'll have some fun cheesy special effects - and this film has some good cheese. The acting isn't great but the actors do make the film kinda fun to watch. And I like the idea of the one astronaut and the alien lady really "liking" each other, and I like the idea of the alien guy being sick so the astronauts decide to help him but I didn't like the way the film played out in order to get the sick alien the formula to treat his leukemia - the military spy thing really didn't help the story (it hurt it to me).
Overall it's something kinda fun and cheesy to watch - not great, but not plan awful.
