Apollo 11 Descent Images
This series of pictures are from a motion picture, shot
by the Apollo 11 astronauts, that documents the final descent of
Apollo 11 toward the surface of the Moon. The last image (lower
right) shows dust being picked up and blown away from the lander's
rocket engines. Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin
piloted the Apollo 11 Lunar Module, Eagle, to the lunar surface on
July 20, 1969.
