NEW YORK (AP) — More than 40 years after the Apollo 11 moon landing, a cloth satchel full of souvenirs brought back by Neil Armstrong has come to light.

Among the trove is a 16-mm movie camera from inside the lunar module that filmed its descent to the moon and Armstrong’s first steps on the lunar surface in 1969.

The discovery was revealed last week by the National Air and Space Museum, which is already displaying the camera in a temporary exhibit.

The bag had been found by Armstrong’s widow recently while cleaning out a closet.
