Luna 15 filmed over Eagle
« on: October 21, 2019, 04:39:39 PM »
Anyone know how this was done?
It looks halfway descent. merp. No but seriously, I'm wondering if someone went out of their way to make a fake lander and create a filter to look very similar to the television downlink. The flag looks pretty similar to 11 but it's pointing in the wrong direction. Anyway I figured someone on here has seen it and may know how it was made.

I would think that it is nothing more than scale models.
The "landing" scene at the end of the clip is a Soyuz capsule landing.

Yeah you're probably right. I am hoping someone knows more about it. I would love a good model of the LM. They are either stupid cheap and busted or extremely expensive.

Luna 15 crashed in the Sea of Crises.  Nowhere near Apollo 11

I don't think the video is making that claim. Luna 15 flying over Eagle was probably used for dramatic effect. Just to show that Luna 15 was in orbit while Eagle was landed.
