There's a great deal of contrast, Ed.
And currently, it's upside down on our monitor, but we can make out a fair amount of detail.
There is Armstrong.
You can see it moving.
There's a foot coming down.
There it is, there's a foot coming down the steps.
Okay, I just checked getting back up to that first step.
The strut isn't collapsed too far, but it's adequate to get back up.
I'm going to step off the LM now.
That's one small step for man.
One giant leap for mankind.
[INAUDIBLE] on the surface of the moon.
On this July 20th, 1960 [UNKNOWN]
He's on the moon!
Look at him, he's on the moon!
Unofficial time on the first step 01:09:24:20.
There seems to be no difficulty in moving around as we suspected.
It's even perhaps easier than the simulations of one sixth G that we performed in the various simulations on the ground.
I'll step out and take some of my first pictures here.
It has a stark beauty all its own.
It's like much of the high desert of the United States.
It's different but it's very pretty out here.
That loos beautiful from here, Neil.
Are you ready for me to come out?
He's running about 1400 ft.
Are you ready?
Your toes are about to come over the sill.
Now drop your PLSS down.
There you go; you're clear.
You've got three more steps and then a long one.
I'm going to leave that one foot up there and both hands down to about the fourth rung up.
Isn't that something?
Magnificat sight out here.
Neil is now unveiling the plaque.
Tell me if you've got a picture, Houston.
We've got a beautiful picture, Neil.
Underneath is says here men from the planet Earth first set upon the moon, July 1969, A.D.
We came in peace for all mankind.
It has the crew members' signatures and the signature of the President of the United States.
Tranquility Base, this is Houston.
Could we get both of you on the camera for a minute, please?
