The Parkes Radio Telescope received all but the first 8 minutes of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin's walk on the moon. It was the source for world wide coverage. The first 8 minutes came from the NASA station at Honeysuckle Creek, near Canberra which was later closed and the antenna moved to Tidbinbilla, a few kilometres away.
