I remember watching this as a kid, on our B&W TV.  Seeing Neal step down from the Lunar module.  An incredible moment

Just a little bit too young to remember that event as it happened live but I do seem to remember seeing the Apollo 13 mission forward as they happened. The Lunar lander missions are the ones where I was finally old enough to really understand their significance and be certain that I have true memories and not necessarily false memories created by viewing the events at a much later date.

I was 3 at the time and I do remember this. 

I remember my Dad waking me up, taking me downstairs to the sofa where at 4am UK time, Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon. 

I find it hard to believe I remember it but he said to me "Just remember this as it will be one of the most historic events ever seen" (or very similar words). 

At such a young age I didn't understand why I had been woken up, why I was looking at the fuzzy black and white image on the TV perched on a chair in the corner of the room and to be honest I don't remember hearing anything Armstrong said, but I did see it and do remember seeing history thanks to my Dad. 

Cheers, Mysticpuma.

Yeah my father did the same. He woke up all in order to witness it. I was 3,5 years old when it happened. I had no idea about the significance, to me it was another man on the moon. And I remember it was fun to actually see him on tv
