It had been cloudy all day but just before sunset we were given clear skies. There was no outdoor lighting on the beach so we were able to the skies as we had never seen them before." • Jonathan Borba - "untitled image" • Robson Hatsukami Morgan - "untitled image" • Jonny Caspari - "untitled image" • Matthew Cooksey - "untitled image" • NASA - "untitled image" • Alexander Andrews - "the heavens" • David Menidrey - "Polystyrene Planets" • NASA - "untitled image" • History in HD - "Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin walks on the surface of the moon on July 20, 1969, in a photograph taken by Neil Armstrong." • Brian McGowan - "Apollo Lunar Module from a recent trip to Kennedy Space Center."
