A shame that embedding videos doesn't work at the moment but hopefully clicking the link isn't too much trouble for most smile its worth it.

I wish they had airbrushed the descent stage out of the LRO imagery but instead they stick a 3D model of the Eagle on it.

I think my favorite comment during the landing is Aldrin telling Armstrong "You're ah.. pegged on horizontal velocity", in other words "Slow down man!" LOL

I watched this the other night. Thanks for posting!

Really gives you a sense of what they had to deal with concerning the terrain.

I reckon they went off coms for a minute so the next words wouldn't be part of history.

"Holy sh--, we are on the Moon, Buzz."
"On the f---ing Moon, Neil. We are on the f---ing Moon!"
"Holy sh-t."

Also, for eight minutes of heart in your throat watching, here's Apollo 12's landing in a similar format, with explanations:

It sure doesn't seem like 8 minutes...more like two.
