Neil Armstrong having dinner

This photo is still being shared with incorrect caption: Neil Armstrong eating his last breakfast on Earth before leaving for the moon.

The viral caption is wrong, because this photo was taken on March 1969 – several months before Apollo 11 was launched on July 16. Also, Neil Armstrong was having a late dinner, not a breakfast.

Some people have commented about the large egg, but Armstrong was actually eating fried chicken and peaches.

What did Apollo astronauts had for breakfast on July 16, 1969? They had orange juice, steak, scrambled eggs, toast and coffee.
