Default July 20th, 1969

We were at our family's beach house in Madison, Connecticut. We were supposed to return to our then-home in Pennsylvania on that day, but stayed an extra day to catch the moon landing. We watched the grainy B&W images from the Moon on the 25-inch RCA color console TV. I was just a couple days shy of my 13th birthday.

I was a child of the Space Age, growing up during the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs. I had the Revell models of the various rockets and spacecraft of the manned space program, including a 5-foot model of the Saturn 5.

It's hard to believe it's been 50 years! Seems like it was only a few days ago...
