Shadow of the Moon

I had forgotten that Christmas Eve of 1968 the astronauts who orbited the moon read...

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth..." All three astronauts decided that first chapter of Genesis would be read and they put it in a fire proofed bag so they could read it.

What a great testimony. Of course, Jim Lovell ruined it by saying that it might have been inappropriate, he didn't know. Way to straddle the fence.

However, the special on Discovery Channel was most excellent and brought back so many memories.

Where were you on July 17, 1969?

I was on the couch at home and watching the most thrilling event of the century.
