A Missed Anniversary

Yesterday was the 42nd anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing but I forgot about it, so I'm playing catch-up today. Above is a shot of Neil Armstrong walking on the Moon, and below is archival footage of those first steps.

And the perfect music for celebrating humanity's first venture onto a new planetary body - Isao Tomita's 1974 synthesizer realization of Claude Debussy's Clair de Lune. Enjoy!


  1. It might have been late, but it was well worth catching up with the anniversary.

  2. I remember my parents letting us stay up late to watch it. We were so excited. I remember our little Apollo 11 toys too... (I'm playing catch up too. I have a lot to go through!)
