    July 20th 1969, 10:56pm EDT, July 20, the first moon walk occured.

    Anyone have memories of that day?

    I was 9 years old. A hot and humid day in Minneapolis. When the moonwalk took place, I remember our neighbors coming over to watch it with us.

    And I do remember it was CBS and Walter Cronkite we watched.

    I will never forget that night, but for other reasons. My Uncle Jack was murdered that night. It's still sad to see the moonwalk replayed because of painful family memories.
