Frank Sinatra: Fly Me To The Moon



Frank Sinatra sings "Fly Me to the Moon," which was played on the Apollo 11 mission to the moon.

********************************

In Remembrance Of Neil Armstrong
American astronaut, test pilot, aerospace engineer, university professor & the first human to set foot on the moon.
Born: August 5, 1930 in Wapakoneta, Ohio
Died: August 25, 2012 in Cincinnati, Ohio

You and your heroics will be long remembered. "That's one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind."

The Armstrong family's statement ends with the following request:
Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink.
You can watch an excellent video clip of the Apollo 11 moon landing and Neil Armstrong's first moments on the lunar surface here; it also captures the spirit here on Earth, as a good part of the world watched this historic event: my whole family were sitting in front of our b&w TV that afternoon and evening.

  1. I am not a Sinatra fan. However, if one goes to Hoboken, New Jersey, one can walk along Frank Sinatra Drive and see magnificent views of Manhattan across the Hudson.

    If one looks across the river, one can see the western end of Perry Street.

    1. I am a fan of Sinatra; although, understandably, he can't be everyone's cup of tea. The view seems spectacular.
