I will never forget where I was hopefully.  I was babysitting my two cousins, Mike and Brian Diramio.  I will never forget the AHW-feeling I experienced watching this live with Walter Conkrite the announcer.  Bill 

Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin landed the Apollo Lunar Module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:17 UTC, and Armstrong became the first person to step onto the Moon's surface six hours and 39 minutes later, on July 21 at 02:56 UTC.

I'm pretty sure I remember watching the broadcast with my parents but memories from way back when are a bit suspect!

I was 12 years old sitting on the floor in my pajamas and watching Walter Cronkite and I remember distinctly the first moon landing. Totally fascinating experience like no other.

I still have the newspaper headlines of that day and have been to talks of astronauts who went to the moon.

Good morning, Bill... I was living in Washington, DC taking an immersion course in Mandarin (12 hours a day for three months) just before my final semester of college at George Washington University and watching the moon landing on a black and white TV with my sorority sister and roommate, Julia.

Good morning Bill,

We were stationed in Meridian, Mississippi as my ex-husband was in the Navy jet training squadron. We were all watching at a friend's house!

Bill, I was younger, and probably didn't mean much to me then, but now a different story.

I was home from college for the summer and remember watching this with my parents. Space still fascinates me and we live on the space coast of Florida so I loved watching the shuttle launches and now, the rockets.

Good morning Bill Salvatore - East Valley ,

I was glad to see your post in Patricia Kennedy Sunday series as somehow I missed it! I still remember hearing Walter Cronkite..he always commanded attention with his authoritative voice! I was in Meridian, Mississippi at the Navy base. My ex-husband was in jet training flight school.
