Apollo 11 lunar surface panoramic views

Three panoramic views of the vicinity of the lunar surface where the Apollo 11 lunar module touched down on July 20, 1969. The top view is looking northwest, revealing many tiny rocks and craters; the center view is looking north, with Lunar Module (LM) leg in right edge of photo and large LM shadow at left; and the bottom view is looking south. The bottom view shows a portion of the LM, most conspicuously the ladder which Astronauts Neil A. Armstrong and Edwin E. Aldrin Jr. used to descend to the lunar surface after egressing the LM. Heavy shadow cast by the LM is visible in the bottom view.
