I saw this on Andrew Chaikin's Facebook page yesterday. A new painting by Paul Fjeld for AIAA's Horizons.
Paul Fjeld is one of the best space artists out there in my opinion.
Lunar Module Eagle moments after the left-hand probe contacts the moon's surface (shown on right) still nearly five feet up, its engine blasting a dust sheet in all directions. The spacecraft attitude is shown four seconds before final touchdown as Neil Armstrong has arrested a leftward drift (north) but overcorrected so the LM is here beginning to slide to the right (south) in the picture. Original acrylic painting by Paul Fjeld.
