The gold visor on the white spacesuit of an Apollo astronaut has become an iconic image. It has come to symbolize the American space program in the minds of just about anyone who sees it.

The image of spacesuit here was taken at the Hall of History at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida. This suit was warn by Gene Cernan on the Apollo 17 mission in 1972.

If you look closely at the reflection in the visor, you can see a secondary reflection of the whole spacesuit reflected off the glass of the display case.

I submitted it to the "Me, My 'Selfie' and I" theme because I noticed that my own reflection can be seen in the visor.
