TV-Moon Landing Specials

On July 20, 1969, the Apollo Lunar Module Eagle landed atop the surface of the moon before a global television audience of more than 500 million viewers.

Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first two human beings to ever walk upon the lunar surface, an achievement Armstrong immortalized with the declaration, "That's one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind."

Fifty years later, that moment remains one of the greatest milestones in American history. Mid-Valley Media is celebrating that anniversary with stories, including yours. What do you remember of the event? Were you watching at home? Were you watching liftoff from the Kennedy Space Center? Or were you involved in helping to make it happen?
