I just found out about this site that will re-create/show the Apollo 11 flight in real time up to the landing.  It goes live on Thursday.

I still remember watching that on T.V.  I can't believe it's been forty years.  Boy, do I feel old.

I'm listening to this site right now.  As I write it will be roughly another hour and 20 minutes to the first step on the Moon.  I recalled it as being about 9 PM Montana time and I was right. 

"But we who feel the weight of the wheel
When winter falls over our world
Can hope for tomorrow and raise our eyes
To a silver moon in the opened skies
And a single flag unfurled.

But the Eagle has landed; tell your children when.
Time won't drive us down to dust again."

From "Hope Eyrie" copyright 1975 Leslie Fish




P.S. Regarding "landing" I just found out that the Lunar Reconnaisance Orbiter took photos that show the shadows of the descent stage http://lunar.gsfc.nasa.gov/

http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/LRO/multimedia/lroimages/apollosites.html  Lots of photos including one that shows the tracks of the astronauts that walked to place some equipment and back to the LM
