U.S. Flag deployed on the Moon - as11-37-5545
The flag of the United States, deployed on the surface of the moon, dominates this photograph taken from inside the Lunar Module (LM).
The footprints of astronauts Neil A. Armstrong and Edwin E. Aldrin Jr. stand out very clearly.
In the far background is the deployed black and white lunar surface television camera which televised the Apollo 11 lunar surface extravehicular activity (EVA).
While astronauts Armstrong, commander, and Aldrin, lunar module pilot, descended in the Lunar Module (LM) "Eagle" to explore the Sea of Tranquility region of the moon, astronaut Michael Collins, command module pilot, remained with the Command and Service Modules (CSM) "Columbia" in lunar orbit.
