AS11-44-6608 (20 July 1969) --- The rough terrain in this photograph is typical of the farside of the moon. This lunar picture was taken from the Apollo 11 spacecraft during the lunar landing mission. About one-half of International Astronomical Union (I.A.U.) crater NO. 308 is visible at upper right. The coordinates of the center of I.A.U. crater NO. 308 are 179.3 degrees east longitude and 6 degrees south latitude. While astronauts Neil A. Armstrong, commander; and Edwin E. Aldrin Jr., lunar module pilot; descended in the Lunar Module (LM) "Eagle" to explore the moon, astronaut Michael Collins, command module pilot, remained with the Command and Service Modules (CSM) in lunar orbit.
