39 years ago today...

Six hours after landing on the moon at 4:17pm eastern daylight time, Neil Armstrong stepped off the Lunar Module “Eagle” onto the surface of the moon. Buzz Aldrin followed about 20 minutes later. Michael Collins was orbiting the moon in the Command Module “Columbia” waiting for Armstong and Aldrin to rendezvous and return to earth.

Wonder. Awe. Etc.

Today I share some images of Buzz Aldrin. "Merely" the second man.

Buzz on the surface...check out the reflection of Neil taking the picture in Buzz's visor.

I love this picture of Aldrin's footprint.

Beautiful picture of "earthrise" over the lunar surface. This shot was taken from the Command Module while orbiting the moon.
