Cool July 20th is the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing-where were you?

I was at camp during the moon landing for that week in 1969. They had all the kids/campers come to the mess hall where they had a large console TV up on a table so everyone could see Neil Armstrong step onto the moon.

If you were around, where were you?

I was walking into the enlisted men's club at Fort Monmouth and witnessed on a tv in the lobby. So glad I got to see it.

I think we were in town and trying to rush back to watch what little coverage about it was on TV. By coverage I mean trying to find a decent channel with reception in those days.

I was in 2nd grade and I can remember them wheeling the TV into the classroom on a cart. We pulled our chairs up close and watched it happen live.

My wife (then-fiancee) & I watched the first steps onto the moon on TV with her parents at their house. Late at night, IIRC.

I was not born before the Apollo 11 launch.
I was not born before the Apollo 11 landing.
I was born before the Eagle left the surface of the moon.

If I ever get Alzheimer's, as long as I can remember Apollo 11, I'll have my birthday close enough. LOL

I was 9. I'm not sure of the brand but it was a good size ( for the time) console TV they put up on tables for everyone to see.

I was in Germany as a tank driver during field maneuvers and we lost a track on our M60A1.
Armed Forces Radio broadcast the landing while we were repairing adding some pleasure to a backbreaking job.
We kept looking up wondering at the prospect of being on the moon.
God Bless the U.S.A.!

I was at home watching it on my TV. I was in high school at the time.

The strange thing that stands out in my memory is that we lived on a very busy four lane boulevard with 24/7 traffic. When they were walking on the moon there were no cars on that street. Everybody was watching a TV somewhere.
