What made the American flag blow during the 1969 moon landing?


This week my husband and I watched historical footage of the 1969 moon landing when we noticed the American flag that was planted was sailing. Since there isn't supposed to be wind on the moon what accounts for the blowing flag in this footage?

    Alastar, it does sound far-fetched but yeah, I've heard the rumor. One source told me that the "proof" was in the lack of stars in the footage. But I don't know, I'm not much of a space buff. But such things are interesting :)
