item #1 - something from a favorite pastime
Sky at Night magazine special issue
A fav pastime for me is looking into the night sky 😍😍😍
And another is reading about it. The Moon, the stars, deep space, planets, physics, all of it 😍😍😍
Lately, I've been reading all about NASA's Apollo 11 mission because of the 50th anniversary
!!! I got the print version of this magazine-book at my local Barnes & Noble.
In my time zone, the anniversary dates for Apollo 11 go like this.....
-----> Tuesday, July 16 ............ anniversary of the launch 😂
-----> Saturday, July 20 ........... anniversary of mankind's landing on the Moon 😂
-----> Saturday, July 20 ........... anniversary of the Neil Armstong's first step 😂
