This iReport is part of an assignment:
40th anniversary of a man on the moon
Historic Moon Landing
I was only 17 years old when that first moon landing took place.
My dad and I was standing in the dark streets of Brakpan, Gauteng, South Africa. He had his 8mm film camera focused on the moon. I had a portabl;e radio on my shoulder.
When those famous words TRANQUALITY BASE HERE, THE EAGLE HAS LANDED came on the radio my dad started to film the moon.
What an historic event.
I would like to find that film and post it on this website.
