"Happy 44th Moon Day"

So -- where were you?

Five weeks shy of my 12th birthday, I was watching on TV (Walter Cronkite of course) in my living room -- holding an American flag. Later that night we went out to the back yard and looked at the moon through my telescope (a Christmas 1968 present). I imagined that I could see some "scratches" on the surface near the Sea of Tranquility. It was a wondrous time.

That picture is of the second man on the moon. The first is holding the camera.

It was a wonderful time.

Actually, that is Neil Armstrong. The camera (grainy, b/w video) was mounted on the side of the LM and deployed remotely before he left the cabin. Once on the surface he removed the camera from its mount and set it up on a tall tripod about 10 meters away. Images of Aldrin descending the ladder (along with stills taken by Armstrong on the surface) clearly show the front of the LM.

Buzz Aldrin descending the ladder.

Oh OK. I thought that that was a still taken from the film taken by Armstrong of Aldrin decending to the moon. It is often mistakenly thought that that was of Armstrong about to make the first footprint.

Another little known factoid -- besides the grainy video image above (well, a few moments later) there is only one photo showing Neil Armstrong on the surface of the moon. (this one)
however, it actually shows Buzz Aldrin, with Armstrong reflected in the visor. Aldrin did not carry a camera with him on the surface. (There are some video images taken from the LM cabin that show Armstrong on the surface, but nothing else taken from the surface itself.)

to be precise, the remote TV video does not actually show Armstrong's feet on the surface, as that part is just out-of-frame.

Most of what I remember is I had to go to bed early and take a nap and then once I was good and asleep they woke me up and plopped me in front of the TV. Most of the memory is about being annoyed about the sleep thing rather than excited about watching history.

It was all shot on a Hollywood movie set.

You are almost young enough to date me.
