Neil Armstrong comments on the final landing sequence. View from the Eagle in 1969 on the left and a Google lunar map on the right - from a video recreation.
A glitch had put the Apollo 11 lunar module in a higher altitude than anticipated on approach. Dangerously low on fuel, Armstrong takes manual control in order to avoid massive boulders, and finds a good spot with less than 30 seconds of fuel remaining. Though reclusive and rarely interviewed, the right stuff gives a rare account to - well - Australian accountants.
