I remember that  wonderful occasion very well.  16 years old I was watching it on a new color TV we got just that week in hopes to watch the walk on the moon in color. Oh well nevermind. It was filmed in black and white. But it was and will continue to be awesome!

I was at my cousin's wedding reception.  They were married and we all got to the reception just in time to pull out a small portable TV, and we all watched 'man's first steps on the moon' and cheered. 

 

To me it was a moment that brought all of Earth together in awe and pride!  Plus, I always remember my cousin's wedding anniversary.

if they hadn't stopped the moon missions when they did, I might have been watching the first manned Mars landing from the Moon.

I watched the "gaint leap" on a very small screened black and white TV in a supply room in Vietnam.   It was a great moment.

I was serving in the US Air Force stationed at Keesler AFB in Biloxi MS. A relative of my brother-in-law invited me to his house to watch the landing. Amazing experience! Sadly, a few weeks later Hurricane Camille hit the area and his house was badly damaged.
