Explanation: On July 20, 1969 the Apollo 11 lunar module Eagle safely touched down on the Moon. It landed near the southwestern corner of the Moon’s Mare Tranquillitatis at a landing site dubbed Tranquility Base. This panoramic view of Tranquility Base was constructed from the historic photos taken from the lunar surface. On the far left astronaut Neil Armstrong casts a long shadow with Sun is at his back and the Eagle resting about 60 meters away ( AS11-40-5961). He stands near the rim of 30 meter-diameter Little West crater seen here to the right ( AS11-40-5954). Also visible in the foreground is the top of the camera intended for taking stereo close-ups of the lunar surface.

说明:1969年7月20日,阿波罗11号登月舱-老鹰号安全着陆于月球上。它降落在月球静海地区西南角一个被称为静海基地的着陆点。这幅静海基地的全景影像是由从月球表面拍摄的数张历史照片构建而成。在影像最左侧,由于太阳在他后方,宇航员尼尔.阿姆斯特朗投下了一道长长的阴影,老鹰号停在距离他约60米远处(AS11-40-5961)。而他站在直径为30米的小韦斯特撞击坑边缘(AS11-40-5954)。前景中还可以看到用于拍摄月球表面立体特写影像的相机顶部。
