Apollo 11

Recommended Posts

50 years ago this July 16th , Apollo 11 set of for the moon, where was you?.

Maybe some of you was not born yet , I was 10 and myself and the rest of the family was in the front room around the black and white tv watching it, my dad made us young ones watch it as it was history in the making.

Last night on tv they should for 1 hour the build up from the dressing room to the rocket launching towards the moon after circling earth, next week they will show the mon landing.

Amazing to watch and yes my dad was right about history being made, I wonder if I will see anything else like that in my life time.

I was 7, we watched it on a black & white tv that had pliers attached to the knob to change the channel and aluminum foil on the antenna.

Hmmm... sounds like mostly a bunch of youngsters here who watched on TV?:laugh:

I watched on my small B & W TV in bed on a very hot July night in a Chicago suburb. I was thrilled beyond belief - man walking on the moon! I think I was 17...

11 years old, on family vacation. We where in a camp ground outside of Seattle WA and my folks had it blaring on the radio. I remember complete strangers coming over with a few beers, handing them around and we all listened to it...…………..I had to drink water :unsure:
