We Came in Peace…

HERE MEN FROM THE PLANET EARTH
FIRST SET FOOT UPON THE MOON
JULY 1969, A.D.
WE CAME IN PEACE FOR ALL MANKIND

From my back yard I present the largest, brightest, most difficult to expose and nearly impossible to focus object in our night sky, shot with paltry equipment that barely meets the bare minimum requirements to yield anything.

Politicians and military top brass in Washington are terrified of a person standing up there erecting a flag that isn’t American. Businessmen want to exploit its resources with no clue how to do it in a safe way. In the absence of a mission yielding something useful, such as the construction of an observatory that could find light from the earliest universe, our scientists simply have better things to do.

But, all through the 1970s, human beings made footprints there. While they were there, they shot photos. Not each other!
