Unless you're a multimillionaire, there's a good chance you'll never see the 'magnificent desolation' of the moon.

But luckily for you, NASA have made a reconstruction of the view from Buzz Aldrin's window as the Apollo 11 Lunar Module made its historic landing 50 years ago.

The original footage, taken from the right hand side window, is from a 16mm time-lapse at just six frames per second, leading to a rather jerky picture.

Now a team have stitched together newer, higher quality photos of the moon based on landmark navigation and altitude call outs from a voice recording as they landed.
