I got a lot of audio of Ranger 8 from launch to Lunar impact and press conferences. I also got the SA-9 launch the day before Ranger 8 is launched too.

Pre-launch image thanks to the late Art LeBrun.  A full resolution version will be posted to the L2 Atlas image thread in coming months (we're only up to April 1964 so far).
