Brings back memories, I watched the broadcast live on TV. Also Apollo 11 landing. I celebrated the 50th year of Apollo 11 by viewing the Apollo 11 lunar landing area and craters with my telescope at 0330 :) There was quite a celebration on the Mall at DC too with the Washington Monument all lit up. Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukah folks. Just broke some Forum rules here :)
