Default Forum members that witnessed Apollo 11 live on TV?

Besides myself, is there anyone "old" enough to have witnessed these amazing events 50 years ago?

Mom said I watched the moon landing while sitting in our living room floor. I was 14 months old. I do remember some of the Skylab missions.

Yes, I would be have been 17!

Actually Apollo 8 seemed more significant to me at the time.
By Apollo 11 NASA seemed to have it nailed...

Yeah I was there. Sat up with my Dad, around 0300hrs trying to stay awake even though I totally in to it. My bedroom wall was covered in cuttings from the papers for years after. Even after I had left home for the RAF in 1971.
