Small Steps; Giant Leaps: First Walk On The Moon 46 Years Ago

Space Window, National Cathedral, Washington, DC

Forty-six years ago, I had to work a late shift at a hotel in Ocean City, Maryland. The staff on duty - probably half a dozen folks - and several guests and passersby watched this historic achievement at 10:56 p.m. on a television we hoisted onto the front desk. Still have vivid memories of the event. Seems like only yesterday.

Did you know that a moon rock collected by Armstrong and Aldrin during this landing is embedded in the center of the Space Window's red planet?  Read more about it here.
