I have meant to post this picture many times, but since today is the 44th anniversary of the first man on the moon, it seems the best day to share it. This is a photo of the TV that my parents took. If you look closely, you can see the antenna above the TV. We had this TV for a long time, until it conked out some time in the 70s. It was a black & white.
Thanks to the courage of the many NASA astronauts who took us into space and who continue to work toward furthering that mission in the future!

I remember this. I was 3 and probably didn’t understand most of what was going on but I remember watching this on this TV.
An excellent memory shot. One of the biggest events of our generation.
I too, remember this, I had to ask permission to stay up late to watch it.
It was a breath-taking, awesome moment.
I listened to it on the radio in a campground, staring at the stars. A great photo for the spectral effect.
