I took this https://i.imgur.com/q4sjBDo.jpg famous image of Buzz Aldrin on the moon, zoomed in to his visor, and because it’s essentially a mirror ball I was able to “unwrap” it to this https://imgur.com/a/xDUmcKj 2d image. Then I opened that in the Google Street View app and can see what Neil saw, like this https://i.imgur.com/dsKmcNk.mp4 . Download the second image and open in it Google Street View and press the compass icon at the top to try it yourself. (Open the panorama in the imgur app to download full res one. To do this instal the imgur app, then copy the link above, then in the imgur app paste the link into the search bar and hit search. Click on image and download.)

Edit: Craig_E_W pointed out that the original photo is Buzz Aldrin, not Neil Armstrong. Neil Armstrong took the photo and is seen in the video of Buzz’s POV.
