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.

I was at the Whitemarsh Open in Whitemarsh Township, PA.   I was 3 months pregnant.   I went inside to the bar to watch the simulation on TV right before they landed.
