The most iconic image from the Space Race era. 

“As I walked away from the Eagle lunar module, Neil said, "Hold it, Buzz." So I stopped and turned around, and then he took what has become know as the “Visor” photo. I like this photo because it captures the moment of a solitary figure against the horizon of the moon, along with a reflection in my helmet’s visor of our home away from home, the Eagle, and of Neil snapping the photo.” Buzz Aldrin

[NASA description] Astronaut Edwin E. Aldrin Jr., lunar module pilot, walks on the surface of the moon near the leg of the Lunar Module (LM) "Eagle" during the Apollo 11 extravehicular activity (EVA). Astronaut Neil A. Armstrong, commander, took this photograph with a 70mm lunar surface camera. While astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin descended in the Lunar Module (LM) "Eagle" to explore the Sea of Tranquility region of the moon, astronaut Michael Collins, command module pilot, remained with the Command and Service Modules (CSM) "Columbia" in lunar orbit.
