A 70mm Airborne Lightweight Optical Tracking System (ALOTS) camera, mounted in a pod on a cargo door of a US Air Force EC-135N aircraft, photographed this event 16 July 1969 in the early moments of the Apollo 11 launch. The mated Apollo spacecraft and Saturn V second (S-11) and third (S-IVB) stages pull away from the expended first (S-1C) stage. Separation occurred at an altitude of about 38 miles, some 55 miles downrange from Cape Kennedy. The aircraft's pod is 20 feet long and 5 feet in diameter. The crew of the Apollo 11 lunar landing mission were astronauts Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin E. Aldrin Jr. AFP PHOTO NASA / AFP PHOTO / NASA / HO
