Visual effects artist reveals what Buzz Aldrin saw on the moon

(ORDO NEWS) — The first man landed on the moon 52 years ago. Artist Michael Ranger, who uses visual effects in his work, took a photo of Neil Armstrong and painted an incredibly beautiful landscape. He examined it in the reflection on the helmet of the world famous astronaut.

At the same time, the artist noted that the work brought him great pleasure, because it was all real.

Reported by Reddit.

The photograph used by the artist was taken in the summer of 1969. Aldrin is next to the Eagle lunar module and raises his left hand up.

If you look closely, you can even see a small piece of our planet in the photo. In 2019 and after that, Ranger tried again to make a reconstruction, but he did not succeed due to the fact that the image was too low resolution.

The artist last used the best resolution he got from the Project Apollo Flickr archive. In addition, the specialist used modern programs, which made it possible to get an incredible work result. The lunar surface, which was displayed in the astronaut’s helmet, turned out to be so realistic and exciting that it is impossible to take your eyes off it.

The Apollo 11 mission was launched on July 16, 1969. Four days later, a man first appeared on the moon and touched its surface.
