Where Were You On July 20....1969?

Tue Jun 23, 2009 3:01 pm

For us 'old folks', do you remember were you were when Armstrong and Aldrin landed on the moon (40 years ago next month)?

I was at summer camp in Charlevoix, MI. I don't remember much, just that all the kids were crowded around a little black and white TV.

Yes I remember it quite well. I was in Corsica as every summer at the time.

I had to hyke up to a mountain where they had the big TV antenna and station to watch the Moon landing. There was no TV in the house. A lot of people from the village did the same. Everybody wanted to see the lunar module landing and first steps on the Moon.

What struck me most was the flag that did not move a bit and stood still. I had never seen anything like it ever before. All stayed up in the TV plant for the whole of the broadcast. It was all black and white TV at the time which I thought was very nice.

We all hyked back down to the village with flash lights when the show had ended talking about everything we saw during the live cast making some stops looking at the sky. It was sort of like we had our own trip to the Moon.

I listened to the landing live on the radio, aged nine. I was at school in Hong Kong at the time and the "powers that be" shepherded us into the assembly hall to listen. Most were a bit pissed off at the disruption but a few of us had been following since the Gemini programme and were enthralled. Of course, it was the 21st July there.  Smile

I had turned nine years old a month earlier (24 June - yes, it's my birthday tomorrow, and yes, I'm old!) I was home with my parents and younger sister, glued to the TV, watching it all unfold. I even remember taking photos of the TV screen with my little Kodak 126 Instamatic camera (my first foray into aviation photography!) I'll have to try to find those old prints - probably somewhere in my parents' house.

I was 10 years old and sitting in front of a b/w TV in Bogota, Colombia. My family and I had only been in the country for three weeks, so my Spanish was virtually non-existant. Luckily, a lot of the feed being shown on the local station was in English, so we could figure out what was going on. As a side note, the broadcast was sponsored by Avianca and a beautiful model of a 707 sat on the anchor's desk throughout the broadcast. I think that was what triggered my interest in commercial aviation.

I was about 2 1/2 years old at the time, so I don´t have any memories (and AFAIK, we didn´t have a TV at this time anyway). About one year later we had a black and white TV and I was allowed to watch the subsequent moon landings, something which really influenced me. There exists a picture of myself in a miniature toy spacesuit and if I look into the old folder of pictures I drew in kindergardten (my mother neatly filed them away at this time and I recently upearthed this folder), I noticed that most of the pictures I drew up to the age of 10 were either rocket launches or vulcanic eruptions (my dad was a geologist).
At the age of 5 I knew all the astronaut´s names and wanted to become one as well.
Concering my TV memories, I also remember the news from Vietnam and the Jom Kippur war.

Man, most of you folks are REALLY young. I was 21 and in the Air Force, stationed at Travis AFB, CA. My first wife and I had only been married a short time and we watched the moon landing on a small, portable TV set that didn't have a very good picture to start with. We had to put blankets on the windows to cut down on the light just to get a decent view.

I was 14 years old at the time, remember watching it in B&W on a 21" TV set with my Dad in the living room of what is still my mom's house. The ultimate goal of the Space program, the dream of millions over the centuries would be realized. I believe I watched the coverage on CBS TV network, led by Walter Cronkite (who is still alive but quite ill). Defenitely one of the most important (and good) events in my life.

I remember it as though it was yesterday. It was a Sunday. I was 20 years old, working on the icebreaker CCGS Alexander Henry for the summer. We were tied up in the harbour at Midland, Ontario for the weekend. Just about the entire crew was sitting in the mess watching Walter Cronkite on CBS throughout the afternoon and evening.

I remember Aldrin or Armstrong saying "we're picking up some dust" just before they landed. That made it all seem very real to me.

There wasn't any jubilation or cheering in our crowd when the actual landing occurred - just a few "wow's" and head shakes - a real sense of admiration for what the Americans had done!

Aged 13, living in Alice Springs in the centre of Australia.
No television there then but remember listening to the landing early in the morning then the actual moment when Neil Armstrong stepped on to the surface was about lunchtime while at school.
I recall stepping outside during the moonwalk broadcast and looking at the moon high in the sky(which is why the images were received at Parkes in NSW)

About 2 weeks after the landing one of my father's managers in Sydney arranged to ship one of their Sony reel to reel video recorders and a large monitor to Alice Springs. Dad and his colleagues took this in turn to the three primary and one high school so all had a chance to see the event in glorious B&W.

Ultimately we had it better than most Australians restricted as they were at the time to B&W television. Alice Springs then was home to many Americans(still is but not as many) due to 2 defence establishments there and because of this the US Government, I think in fact the USAF who had a seismic station in the town, received within a few weeks of each flight the official NASA 16mm movie of the mission which they also made available to the High School.
In this way we got to see the extremely high quality colour vision of each flight that ordinary Australians never got to see.

40 years ago, incredible!

Regards

Chris

July 20, 1969 was a showery, overcast day in central New Jersey, where my flying club, Fairfield Aero Club, based at Caldwell, NJ, was having a clambake at Miller Airpark in South Toms River, NJ. Another club member and I had gone out clamming in Barnegat Bay the day before to harvest the main attraction for this event. We also offered a roast pig, which was more popular than the clams. About a dozen planes flew in for the party, and a reporter and photographer from a local newspaper, the Asbury Park Press attended. The idea was to get coverage for General Aviation and how we used airplanes like most people used cars. Of course, the moon landing was on all our portable radios, and the attendees all cheered loudly when those famous words were spoken. While coverage of our clambake was not front page news the next day,(Guess what was) we still made it to page 3.

One of our planes was then about six months old, a Piper Cherokee 180D that I had picked up in February and flown from the factory in Vero Beach to my local base at Lakewood, NJ. The registration number was N7861N, but the plane is now in Germany, registered as D-EADW.

actually for most of the worlds population the moon landing happened on 21/07/69 rather than 20/07 . anyway , on the morning of Monday 21 July 1969 , my poor mother succumbed to much nagging and let me take the day off school so we could listen to it on the radio ( although we had TV there was not yet live satellite feed and IIRC we did not see the TV footage until the next day ) , I had turned six just a couple of weeks before and my life was absolutely dominated by the Apollo project , I think she realised that she would never hear the end of it if she made me go to school ... I am pretty sure that I was not the only kid who beat my mother into submission because the next day I found out that very few kids had made it to school

With all due respect, when the UN can organize and fund something as incredible as the Apollo project, your line of thinking will become legitimate.

I'm by no means a wanton Old Glory flag-waver, but this is one achievement that belongs to America. We set our best and brightest to the task and they delivered. The motivations or political climate notwithstanding, they did the incredible, and nobody has topped it since.

I wasn't born yet. But My dad was watching it in his classroom with everyone else. When Neil finally landed on the moon, the teacher turned and walked to my Dad and smiled and said "Mike, we are very proud of your uncle".

Yep, Neil Armstrong is my great-uncle by marriage. The relation is he married my grandma's sister. I have met him 3 times. Great guy, I remember shaking his hand and talking. He keeps to himself and can be quite stubborn and such but overall good guy.

I keep in touch with his ex wife (Janet) kids and grand kids whom are my cousins and 2nd cousins too.

So it is always nice to read these stories about my great uncle from other people.

Unfortunately, there are those that believe that the moon landing never happened and that it was staged. My wife's first husband was one of those. He also thought there was no Holocaust.  Yeah sure

I was 14 at the time. Our TV broke the day before so my dad rushed out to the strore and bough a 19" portable B&W so that we could see it.

That was the weekend that Ted Kennedy had his problem at Chapaquitic -- any other time in history that would have been THE news story, but as it was, there was barely a mention of it.

The summer of '69 is when the original Star Trek series was cancelled -- I was bummed about that.

Sitting in front of a black and white console TV in my parent's living room in Ridley Park, PA (suburban Philadelphia). I was 5 yrs old, so that's all I remember.

I didn't know you were once a Delco resident. I presently reside (in Secane) just a few miles from where you lived.
