*Short description: Astronaut Buzz Aldrin on the moon *Full description: Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, lunar module pilot, stands on the surface of the moon near the leg of the lunar module, Eagle, during the Apollo 11 moonwalk. Astronaut Neil Armstrong, mission commander, took this photograph with a 70mm lunar surface camera. While Armstrong and Aldrin descended in the lunar module to explore the Sea of Tranquility, astronaut Michael Collins, command module pilot, remained in lunar orbit with the Command and Service Module, Columbia. *This is the actual photograph as exposed on the moon by Armstrong. He held the camera slightly rotated so that the camera frame did not include the top of Aldrin's portable life support system ("backpack"). A communications antenna mounted on top of the backpack is also cut off in this picture. When the image was released to the public, it was rotated clockwise to restore the astronaut to vertical for a more harmonious composition, and a black area was added above his head to recreate the missing black lunar "sky". The edited version is the one most commonly reproduced and known to the public, but the original version, above, is the authentic exposure. A full explanation with illustrations can be seen at the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal.
Español: La fotografía está trucada. La misma NASA reconoce que la banda negra superior es un añadido a la foto original, realizado por "razones de balance". Ver foto original y explicación del trucaje en el enlace. En la versión ampliada de la fotografía es posible ver una línea blanca horizontal en la parte superior izquierda (derecha de la persona que contempla la fotografía) de el casco. Es la base de la antena, que fue cortada en el encuadre original de la fotografía.
