No, I bet he remembers fine.

I am sure he asked about it and I am sure it could not be
absolutely identified.

No! I know of no lost floodlights. Instrument booms were
jettisoned and sub-satellites deployed though.

After examining the show footage, I tend to agree that it is not
likely the floodlight. Could be the Saturn booster or
subsatellite. Or a alien spaceship. Hard to track down but I
don't remember seeing such video/film in my Apollo stash.
