Read more about the image: This iconic image of Dr. Buzz Aldrin is by far the most famous of all the moon images. If you look closely at Aldrin’s helmet visor, you can see the reflection of Dr. Buzz 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.” Dr. Buzz 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.
Dr. Buzz Aldrin said that wasn’t the case at all, stating, “It wasn’t staged,” Aldrin said. “It was just a lucky shot.” Dr. Buzz Aldrin was simply walking across the lunar surface and Armstrong snapped a photo at just the right moment. Really, he said, there are just three words that sum up why this photo is so incredible: “Location, location, location.”
