    50 years since the Moon landing!  I was home sick, from work, and remember sitting in the lounge, watching every second. It was a breathtaking moment in time.

    Do others remember where they were?

    Yes.
    I called at a house to do some work there.
    The moon landing was imminent.
    So the householder and I sat down with a cup of tea and watched it.
    The atmosphere of the landing was ‘electric’.
    I am glad I was there to witness that historic event.
    I managed to get all the work done later.

    Yes I also remember, we were living in Qld at the time I was involved with our first little boy I remember seeing the moon landing on our little black and white TV and little Peter playing on the floor whilst his mother(me) watched . Gosh so long ago

    I should emphasise that it was Neil Armstrong stepping down on to the lunar surface that I saw on Tv long ago.
    I thought the picture was far from clear, but it was recognisable for what it was.
    (the actual landing of the spacecraft had happened quite a few hours earlier)
    I think most people think of the ‘moon landing’ in terms of Neil Armstrong stepping on to the moon?
    Neil Armstrong’s ‘one small step for man …’ speech is missing a word too. (a glich deleted it?)
    He is reputed to have said, ‘one small step for a man, …’
    The missing ‘a’ alters the meaning somewhat.
