High resolution film footage of the original Apollo 11 moon landing, never before seen by the public, has surfaced in an Australian’s personal film collection. The collection belongs to Peter Clifton, a rock video director who made films and videos for Pink Floyd.
It turns out the footage we all know was recorded off a TV screen by a video camera. In other words, the quality is way below what was on the original recording.
NASA has lost the original recordings in a maze of government archives. The footage found by Peter Clifton is expected to lead to the discovery of the originals.
