Read more about image: This most famous one is this iconic picture of Aldrin. If you look closely at Aldrin’s helmet visor, you can see the reflection of Aldrin’s shadow, Armstrong and the Eagle lander. Armstrong took the photo with a 70mm lunar surface camera while the two explored a region of the moon known as the “Sea of Tranquility.” Aldrin said many people assume this famous photo was posed because it manages to capture both moonwalkers and the lander. Sometimes they ask him if NASA specifically ordered this kind of shot.
Aldrin said that wasn’t the case at all, stating, “It wasn’t staged,” Aldrin said. “It was just a lucky shot.”
Aldrin was simply walking across the lunar surface and Armstrong snapped a photo at just the right moment.
Really, Aldrin said, there are just three words that sum up why this photo is so incredible: “Location, location, location.”
