Yes, I remember it well. The whole family gathered around the black & white TV watching it LIVE. I was 13 and my older brother was 14. We had all the AMT and REVELL plastic model kits of the Saturn V, the LEM, the Apollo capsule, as well as the Gemini capsule and the Mercury capsule. We were caught up in the space program as was much of America back then. Despite Vietnam and the race riots, we were a proud country that night. It really united the whole world for a brief while. Even the Pope, Castro, Khrushchev and Brezhnev stopped to watch the landing. The big secret that Neil Armstrong took to his grave and that Buzz Aldrin won’t talk about was what or who was following their trajectory and orbit around the moon and what it was they saw when they landed. Aldrin had taken some photos of two UFOs following the Apollo 11 CM and LEM in orbit around the moon. Two full minutes of the Armstrong/Houston conversation turned up as ‘missing’ and unaccountable and written off as a glitch. Allegedly, what Armstrong and Aldrin saw when they landed were other alien spacecraft lined up around a crater and watching them. Like the FBI and Warren Commission/Kennedy files, both of them , and the King files, we may never know the truth in our lifetime.
