Follow Apollo 11 in real time with all audio and video


I missed the 50th anniversary of the launch yesterday, but I just learned about this web site, Apollo 11 in Real Time:

https://apolloinrealtime.org/11/

It's one of the more complex web sites I've seen. At the moment (50 years ago) Apollo11 is orbiting the Earth.

Amazing work by everyone involved.

Yeah, that is pretty odd. I clicked on the big "Now" button and got too excited.

I was fourteen years old the night they landed. As I have mentioned before, I was so keyed up that although I never took my eyes from the TV I could see nothing but blobs of black, white, and gray swirling around. My brain would not process what my eyes took in.

I of course saw it in repeat later. And I went outside, as it was clear here, and marveled that there were people up there, on that moon I could see.

Very cool site! Thanks gaffa! At this very moment the astronauts are asleep and will be wakened in 4-hrs 53-mins (there’s a countdown timer).

I was 8 years old and living in Latham NY. I was in 2nd grade at a brand-new school that had just opened, Latham Ridge Elementary. My teacher was Mrs. Feeney. The Principal was Mr. Alton (Tony) Downer.

I’ll be exploring this site.
