Three reels of videotape from NASA’s Apollo 11 mission described as “the only surviving first-generation recordings of the historic moon walk” will be auctioned at Sotheby’s on Saturday, the day of the moon landing’s 50th anniversary.

The footage offers “unrestored, unenhanced, and unremastered” images of Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the Moon’s surface and the planting of the American flag, the auction house says. The bidding starts at $700,000, and Sotheby’s estimates they will sell for $1 to $2 million.
