It was 40 years ago today…

Where was I? I was in a giant field at the Bert Adams Boy Scout Camp in Newton County, Georgia, sitting in the grass with about 400 other scouts. A very long extension cord had been extended into the field and a color television was mounted on a metal scaffold. The sound and visual quality was less than optimal, but we sort of knew we were watching history. It was in the evening and the cicadas drowned out the voices of the astronauts.  Don’t ask me what I was doing the day before or after that. Long live NASA.
