I was working in Sydney, Australia, on the day of the first Moon landing. Every department store window had a television in it, as did business offices which faced the streets. People were packed in everywhere trying to see Neil Armstrong & Buzz Aldrin ON THE MOON!!!!!!
It was an incredible feeling of accomplishment.
Sat up early one morning watching Apollo 13 make it’s safe journey back to earth–relief.
A few years later I raced home from a class to witness the final lift off from the moon–spectacular.
So many great moments in between and unfortunately some sad ones too–Apollo 1 and the two shuttle disasters.
Hopefully we’ll get back up there.
