By Kevin Jess     Sep 10, 2009 in World
Footage of the moment the second plane crashed into the World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001, which was previously unseen, has been released.
These new images are just a few minutes among hundreds of hours of amateur video and images being collected by the National September 11 Memorial and Museum at the World Trade Center which has launched a website containing examples of citizen journalism of the tragedy.
According to today's press release the museum has issued a world-wide invitation for the public to submit media related to the 9/11 events through a new online initiative "Make History."
911History.org will become a permanent digital archive and help build an interactive, mapped time line of events on the web.
9/11 Memorial and Museum President Joe Daniels said, "Public participation is critical to building the historical record of the events of 9/11."
"9/11 was probably the most widely documented event in modern history, witnessed by literally billions of people in real time, around the world," said Memorial Museum Director Alice Greenwald.
Each photo will be placed alongside current Google "Street View" photos of various locations. Users can click on locations, themes or time of day to view the footage or images from the locations they were actually taken reports Sky News.
As Sky News also reports, "There were vigils in Tehran, Berlin, London, Moscow, Tokyo. ... We're asking people everywhere to help us tell the story."
