Aldrin's Extravehicular Visor
Buzz Aldrin wore this outer helmet while on the surface of the moon. It fitted
over his clear pressure-bubble helmet.
The A7L Lunar Extravehicular Visor Assembly has two visors, one with a thermal
control coating and the other with a gold optical coating. It also has two
side sunshields, which could be raised and lowered independently. These
shields and visors protected Aldrin's eyes from the unfiltered light of the Sun
while outside on the airless Moon.
