On the Spot

By Michael Turton

What do you remember about Neil Armstrong’s walk on the moon on July 20, 1969?

“We had just moved to Frankfurt, Germany. I was 11 and watched in the hotel bar — the liftoff, then, days later, Armstrong kind of skipping along.” ~Grey Zeien, Cold Spring

“I was 3½, wearing my pink, one-piece, footed PJs. I have a picture of me watching it on TV.” ~Liz Travis Heitmann, Garrison

“I was 35, working the night shift at IBM. We watched at a restaurant; it was incredible.” ~Tony Musacchio, Beacon
