Rocket's Eye shots: The Saturn rocket carried two cameras within its first stage to take pictures of the operation. This is the separation of the first stage as seen through the fish eye lens of the one camera that is recovered (the other is lost at sea). The camera was wet to start three seconds before this first stage separation and kept taking picture for 25 seconds more. the debris is bonding substance released when the two parts disengage. During the seconds that these super-slow motion pictures are being taken the cameras travel twenty one miles in space.
