S69-44465 (20 July 1969) --- These panoramic views of the lunar surface, photographed from the Apollo 11 Lunar Module (LM) as it rested on the lunar surface. The views reveal the surface near where the LM touched down, in the southeastern Sea of Tranquility. The views are as it looked before and after astronauts Neil A. Armstrong and Edwin E. Aldrin Jr. participated in extravehicular activity (EVA). The United States flag is pictured in the bottom or "after" photo with the black and white lunar surface television camera pictured at the right of flag. Shadows of the LM are visible in the two panoramic views and a silhouette of part of a Reaction Control Subsystem thruster is seen in the bottom picture. Note the numerous footprints made by the two crewmen during the EVA period.
