“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

The photographs are guaranteed as vintage NASA prints, processed by NASA’s photographic laboratories shortly after the date of the scene depicted. As contemporary, original prints of pictures taken by astronaut-photographers such as Neil Armstrong, they are very rare and difficult to find, especially in good condition. 

Generally speaking, vintage NASA photographs were printed on fibre-based photographic paper, 20 x 25 cm (8 x 10 in). Most are printed on “A Kodak Paper”, a watermark which changed in 1972.  Unless otherwise stated, all photographs are glossy prints on paper. The NASA reference numbers within square brackets do not appear on the prints and are provided for reference.
