Mission patch  The date was July 20, 1969.  The time was 11:59 p.m. EST.  The event, Apollo 11, a NASA mission landed on the moon.  During the 1960's following the space program was a national hobby.  In May of 1961 President John F. Kennedy declared that by the end of the decade the United States of America would successfully send a man to the moon.  His vision became a reality.  On that day, Commander Neil Armstrong, Command Module Pilot Michael Collins, and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin (Buzz) Aldrin became national heroes.Apollo 11

 

It is fun looking back, I remember that broadcast to this day.  My eyes were glued to the television set as we watched Neil Armstrong make his way down the ladder and his foot touch the surface of the moon.  The video and audio transmission were not great quality, but his words were heard around the world. ""That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind". 

We were a country of proud Americans when that flag was firmly planted on the moon.

Here is a website that has some great statistical information about the Apollo 11 mission.

I am surprised that I did not hear much about this today. It is my daughters birthday, and we celebrate the moon walk each and every year. Seems most people have forgotten.

     We were in Palatka (central Florida) when Apollo 11 took off.  You could see it from our house, when it dropped the second stage.  We watched the Moon Walk on TV a few days later.  Exciting times!

Kathy, we had a house full of guests staring intenly that evening at the TV.  Seems almost like yesterday when they, the Astronaurs, made time stand still that evening.
