Quite a different type of Full Moon
It's been noted (everywhere it seems - from the Blogs, to Fox, and NASA itself) that today is the 40th anniversary of the launch (MTV moment here) of Apollo 11, with Armstrong and Aldrin's moonwalk occurring 4 days later, in 1969. NASA is streaming real-time audio transcripts of the mission and there are new (X-treme sharpening in play?) images from back in the day - it's like Woodstock: "Where were you. . ." You can even learn about some of the camera gear the lads used (and left) up there!
Which bring us to this little item - R.E.M. performing with Bruce Springsteen (!) at a Vote for Change concert in Washington, a while back.
Michael cleaned up pretty nicely, don't you think?
