The Eagle Has Landed

Since everyone is celebrating/remembering Apollo 11… The date the Lunar Lander touched down was August 20th, 1969. The time was 20:17:40 UTC (or 4:17 PM EDT for those of you confused by universal coordinated time, or Zulu time).

They managed to land the Eagle and shut the engines down with about 20 seconds of fuel reserve left. This video is the last 40 seconds of the descent.
