I was getting married.  I remember watching the news reports after our reception.  What a day!

My husband and  I and our 2 children rushed home from visiting his grandparents in Ohio.  We got the children, 9 and 10 ready for bed and we all sat down in the living room to watch.  I took a photo of them watching as Armstrong set foot on the moon and I still have the photo, a very nice picture.

Well, I was a contractor with IBM at the time.   I worked at the  Clear Lake NASA facility here in Houston; and we worked with NASA on the moon landing.   I remember being in the IBM cafeteria and screaming with my co-workers when they landed.   It was so unbelievable.   It was AMAZING.

Hi

I was 11

We were still living on Westbank of New Orleans LA in process of moving to Carriere MS 

We(mom, 2 brothers & baby sister & I) watched on TV not sure if Dad was home

Few weeks later we moved to rental house to live -till they got a home built - just as Hurricane Camille arrived on the Mississippi Gulf Coast 

These were big moments in my life & history I recall then

Good question!  But to be honest, I quite often can't remember where I was or what I was doing last week, let alone what I might have been doing 50 years ago.  Surely, my grandmother watched the whole thing as she stayed glued to the TV back then.  As for me though, I was probably out riding my bike.  But really, I have no clue what I was doing or where I was when the moon landing occurred.  However, I guess it went pretty darn okay, cuz they haven't stopped talking about it since.  Smile.

That is a very good question. I was almost 13 years old and it was summer. I cannot imagine I was any place else except our living room with the television.

Next month is the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. Where were you watching it from? What do you remember about it?

 

If you're looking to relive the memory, check out one of these 50th anniversary events.

 

Where were you for the 'Giant Leap'?
