The photographer responsible for one of my favorite images of all time passed away last weekend. Neil Armstrong (reflected in Buzz Aldrin’s visor above) was an inspiration in so many ways.
NASA provides a further description of this photo:
Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, lunar module pilot, walks on the surface of the Moon near the leg of the Lunar Module (LM) “Eagle” during the Apollo 11 extravehicular activity (EVA).
Astronaut Neil A. Armstrong, commander, took this photograph with a 70mm lunar surface camera.
While astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin descended in the Lunar Module (LM) “Eagle” to explore the Sea of Tranquility region of the Moon, astronaut Michael Collins, command module pilot, remained with the Command and Service Modules (CSM) “Columbia” in lunar orbit.
