The TLI burn from the ground would be great.  Does anyone know where a link to any of the TLI's might be?  The only one that I have seen is http://pages.astronomy.ua.edu/keel/space/apollo.html  and there are only a couple of the TLI itself.  I know they were over the Pacific normally and not too many people have telescopes on the water.

I didn't see any of the Apollo TLIs, but we did see the TMI (Trans Mars Injection?) burn of the Falcon 9 Heavy last year. That was fun. I'm sure the Saturn V TLIs were even more impressive.

The footage in the A11 documentary is only a few seconds long, but it does show the SIVB light up.  Looked like they had trouble tracking right after that.

Well they had to get it somewhere.

Ah, now I understand what you're asking.  I'm guessing this is from the same source as the wide-angle launch view (the 69mm film that was never used until now).

Scott Manley just posted a video that explains the footage of the S-IVB relight.  It may not be what you expect!

At the office, we're fans.  I want to have him narrate all my presentations.
Scott Manley the manly Scot. Hot damn does he have a sexy voice! :o
And, yes, very fascinating and informative to boot!

OMG, I can't believe the number of otherwise perfectly sane women who go ga-ga over a male Scot's accent!!

I'm already a kilt-wearing Scot.  My mother's father is true-blue Clan Bell -- from the borderlands.  My mother's mother is McInnes, with influences from MacFarlane and MacLaren.  But I'll never be a Scott Manley manly Scot no matter how much Lagavulin I have in the cabinet.  Plus, if you've seen the Bell tartan...

The doc showed a clip of the CSM orbiting the moon in the movie right after they finished up on the moon's surface. I didn't catch if that was a simulation or real footage. And if it was real, was it DAC footage or TV footage? And does anyone have a link? Thanks.

Real, not simulated.  16mm film.  Link to what?  The source footage?

Hi Jay,

Thanks, I thought it was DAC footage. Does anyone have a link to it? I can't seem to find it in any of the Journals. It is probably right in front of my eyes but I can't seem to locate it.

There's no guarantee it will be available digitized for download.  The producers obtained the source footage as the original dupe masters -- i.e., film.  You may have to contact NASA's photo archive contractor to obtain similar footage.
