Last week was the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 crew returning back to Earth.

Therefore, we want you to create a scene showing what happened on the moon during the Apollo 11 mission while the cameras were off; what did we not see? What did the astronauts not tell us about?

Be creative - your scene does not need to be entirely realistic (in fact it can be downright ridiculous if you want). For example, you could pixel a scene where Neil Armstrong is sitting on the moon's surface with a laptop and logging onto Pixel Joint.

Don't forget to check out the Apollo 11 Wikipedia article for further information on the moon landing.

Canvas Size - Max 120 x 180. Either horizontal or vertical.
Colours - Max 36. Use only colours from the palette provided below, you may use transparency. Colours are taken from this image.



Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.



The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.
