Editor's Comment: Jack White says the text accompanying each of the above photographs was written by the NASA operators of the Apollo Image Gallery. Dave Greer pointed out that the editor of the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal, Eric Jones, has acknowledged he made an error when stating that the image in question was taken from Neil Armstrong's window, rather than Buzz Aldrin’s window, and has agreed to update the caption on the NASA web site accordingly (August 2006).

Eric Jones also mentioned that sometimes they would receive the occasional image that had been printed backwards. This was due to using scans from NASA photographic prints and there was always the possibility that a darkroom technician might accidentally print a photo backwards.
