On March 24, 1965, a nationwide TV audience watched live video from Ranger 9 as it purposefully crashed into the Moon within the crater Alphonsus. The last few images show the lunar surface in detail from a few hundred meters above.

This sequence of images from Camera A was converted from video to film to laser disc to digital files.
