Neil Armstrong’s Apollo 11 extravehicular visor

Neil Armstrong’s Apollo 11 extravehicular visor, worn for the first steps on the Moon, July 20, 1969.

The moon landing. Sometimes you make photographs and your eyes behind the camera are just a little bit wider.

50 years. The awe of what it meant to put a person on the moon remains fresh, the shine of Armstrong’s visor undimmed. Objects that have traveled to a place we can all only summon through grainy footage can still spark a collective pride, promise and wonder.

The Smithsonian is an American treasure that houses American treasures.
