Neil Armstrong

Neil Alden Armstrong
August 5, 1930-August 25, 2012
 
Neil Armstrong, the first man that stepped on the face of the moon, will be put to rest this Friday. How appropriate that the Blue Moon will appear in the sky tonight. A Blue Moon is a rare occassion with the next one being July 2015.

I salute a brave pioneer in America's space program, you are a true hero may you rest in peace.

You were a pioneer in the American space program and were the first to set foot on the moon. Your bravery and courage cannot be measured. You truly are an American hero!

The blue moon is gorgeous -- be sure to see it. This won't happen again until 2015, I've read.

Neil Armstrong will be missed by many. We will always remember him when we look at the moon. It touches us even more on the Space Coast since this is where they launched from.

Glogirly's dad had the privilege of working in NASA's mission control during many of the Apollo missions, including Apollo 11. He was right there watching Mr. Armstrong on the big screen when he took that first step and when they splashed back down to home. Neil Armstrong was a hero to so many boys and girls of the 60's. RIP.
xo, Katie
