Did you know that the Apollo 11 spacecraft entered lunar orbit today in 1969? The crew orbited the moon 30 times. As the spacecraft passed over the Moon’s Sea of Tranquility the astronauts made observations of the designated lunar landing site. They looked for any unexpected obstacles that would change the flight path astronauts Aldrin and Armstrong would make in the Lunar module from the Command Module to the surface of the Moon. On July 20, 1969, Collins stayed to pilot the Command Module. Aldrin and Armstrong moved to the Lunar Module, separated from the Command Module, and began their journey to the Moon.
We hope that you keenly observe the world around you. Remember to think kind thoughts, use kind words, and do kind things. We Love You.
As the Eagle Lunar Module separated from the Command Module, Collins looked over the module to ensure that it was not damaged.
