Growing up in the '60s, I was always fascinated by the space race and the NASA missions to the moon. On this day in 1972, the U.S.A's last manned launch to the moon took place with Apollo XVII, and we haven't set foot there since.
I am into the stars, planets and cosmos big time! Tonight, we on earth (that includes all of us) will experience a total lunar eclipse. Unfortunately, it won't be visible to us in central New York, or even North America.
