After 49 years, the sequence from Apollo 11 appeared.
Some of the pictures are not focused, others look accidental taken. The one who scanned the pictures and posted them on Flickr, has some of the rarest images on his website, which deliver readers some behind-the-scenes frames.
The best pictures were taken by Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, also with the distribution feed, watched by 600 million people from all over the world on July 20, 1969.
Armstrong was the famous one. Collins never put his foot on the lunar area.
Other than the US flag and some tools, the group left behind a plate that says: “Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the Moon, July 1969 A.D. We came in peace for all mankind’ along with the signatures of the astronauts and President Richard Nixon.”
