Never-before-seen video footage of the Apollo 11 moonwalk discovered in Australia will be shown at an awards ceremony in Sydney next week.

The footage of mission commander Neil Armstrong descending the ladder of the lunar module will be shown at the Australian Geographic Society Awards next Wednesday, Australian Geographic said in a statement obtained by AAP.

Armstrong's descent will be among highlights of the historic 1969 moonwalk to be shown at the awards, at which lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin will be the guest of honour.

Other footage to be shown includes digitally remastered images of Armstrong's first step on the moon surface, Aldrin's descent of the ladder, the reading of the plaque and the raising of the US flag.

It is the first time the highlights reel of the restored footage will be screened.

Telescopes in remote Australia played a key role in the Apollo 11 mission, including provision of the television signal, after Armstrong decided to attempt the moonwalk early, putting the United States just beyond the horizon.

John Sarkissian - historian and astronomer in charge of the Australian side of the recordings restoration project - told AFP the unseen minutes were the "best quality of Armstrong descending the ladder".

"NASA were using the Goldstone (California) station signal, which had its settings wrong, but in the signals being received by the Australian stations you can actually see Armstrong."

"In what people have seen before you can barely see Armstrong at all, you can see something black - that was his leg.

"When we heard Buzz was going to be the guest of honour we thought 'what a great opportunity'."

The unseen footage of Armstrong, which runs for "just a few minutes", was discovered after a 10-year search, Australian Geographic said.

There was a "long detective story" involved in the search for the footage and Sarkissian said it took painstaking frame by frame work to shift the material from the deteriorating black and white film to digital format.

"It was very damaged tape as well, that segment of Armstrong at the beginning," he said.

Digitising the recording was "significant in the space flight history context" allowing it to be preserved and copied for future generations, said Sarkissian.

The Australian Geographic Society Awards recognise Australia's leading adventurers, scientists and conservationists and marks 100 issues of the Australian Geographic journal.

(Note: the video gets permanently deleted on utube and rudbrps, the original uploader of the video claims now that it's a hoax, a social experiment as he's forced to say lately. But it doesn't matter as rudbrps pointed out the area to watch (right corner) and you still can see the shadow in the public Apollo 16 footage) :owned:
