On this day in 1969, Apollo 11 made thirty orbits of the moon which allowed
them to view the landing site: the southern Sea of Tranquility, one of the
most suitably flat areas. This area had confirmed by the
Apollo 10 ‘dress

in which the crew captured vital film footage and photos 
while orbiting the moon.
