    Teds posting of those elements brought back a truely unforgetable moment in
    my life.
    
    I was on millitary leave either just before leaveing/return  for Alaska in
    1967-68 Or leaving/returning for Vietnam 69.
    
    From my home in Homestead, Fla I looked up at the sky. In the center of the
    Great Square of Pegasus was a "star" with a nebula around it. In my 7x50's I
    thought I saw the fuzzz move.
    
    I didnt stay long, and the object may have been slowly moveing, I dont
    recall. But on TV that night I remember hearing on the local news about many
    reports of sightings. And this was the Apollo fireing its rockets between
    the Earth and Moon.
    
    Well, all I can say is that the next time a crew leaves Earth for the Moon,
    or Mars, we will have this E-list to make sure everyone has a chance to
    witness such a sight as I was lucky to see.
    
    Then everyone on the planet can look and wave...
