This July 20, 1969, photo provided by NASA shows Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong on the lunar surface. Apollo 11 astronauts trained on Earth to take individual photographs in succession in order to create a series of frames that could be assembled into panoramic images. This frame from Aldrin's panorama of the Apollo 11 landing site is the only good picture of mission commander Neil Armstrong on the lunar surface. Special to The Forum
When Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon 50 years ago this Saturday, July 20, it marked one of the most iconic and historic moments of the 20th century.
