I took this image to honor the historic accomplishment of Apollo 11 45 years ago this month. The "x" marks the approximate landing site of the "Eagle", and the three craters named for the astronauts , Armstrong, Collins, and Aldrin are labeled with their initials in the image. This event is one of the triggers that ignited my interest in the heavens above as an 11 year old. The solar eclipse the following March cemented my love of Astronomy.
