A – The  Earth  as  seen  from  the  Moon

B – The  inauguration  of  the  Grand  Canyon  Skywalk ( visible  in  the  background ) . The  skywalk  is  owned  by  the  Hualapai  Indian  Tribe  and  the  pic  shows  the  tribal  chief  dedicating  it  to  the  nation .

C – MTV

The  connect – Edwin “Buzz”  Aldrin

He  was  the  2nd  man  on  moon –  he  inaugurated  the  Skywalk by  taking  the  first  steps  on  the  structure – the  MTV  music  video  award  statuette  depicts  an  astronaut  with  an  MTV  flag ( known  as  the  ‘moonman’ )  and  is  modelled  on  Aldrin .

Full  marks  to  all  who  mentioned  Edwin  Aldrin  in  their  answer – Anon  who  actually  is  Anil  Raghavan , Incognito  and  Nishanth  Raman . Brilliant  job  guys !!
