Fifty-three years ago, the first moon landing took place. I saw it on television.
Apollo 11 astronauts, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, were the first humans to walk on the moon. The United States had won this leg of the space race and nations have been competing ever since to explore the cosmos.
Here is today’s haiku:
National Moon Day
Earthling spacemen land
and collect precious moon dust.
“Look Mom, we did it!”
