On July 20th, 1969, the Apollo 11 Lunar Module "Eagle" landed on the moon, with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on board. Mounted in the window was a 16mm film camera.

At the beginning and end of the film reel was some exposed film used to load onto the reel. Normally they would be discarded.

But these film scraps were distributed to Kodak engineers as thanks for helping on the Apollo 11 program. Decades later one engineer sold his scrap..

Buzz, you were the LMP, the camera was in your window! Do you recognize this?

Neil was too busy landing the vehicle

Judging by his ears, Buzz is surprised by this reunion
