reply to post by SplitInfinity
Again thank you Split Infinity. So far no one has really been following the topic as I'd intended. lol! I thought I worded everything sooo
carefully. In hindsight, I now realize that when I opened this post when I spoke of the memory inspiring my interest when I saw the documentary of, "
The Making of Moon Rising. " Guess I was excited because it matched with his claims so perfectly, and if he had not gone on a mission, ( Which by
they DID begin in 1958, though no one walked on the Moon till Niel Armstrong ) then how could he have possibly known that far back? But as I was
saying, in hindsight, I should not have mentioned his name, the year, or his death. I should have just left it at, " An Astronaut friend of my
Father's said this about the Moon Surface and the space travel to and from the Moon.
Guess I wasn't as careful as I'd though lol.
But for replies like yours and Phage, and a couple others, I found them to be on topic with the title which is actually the most important to me. ie;
If anyone replying had decent telescopes, etc. But even the information on the telescopes are much appreciated by me. I love to learn and wouldn't
be on ATS if I didn't.
I like that ATS members do not, " Simply take one's word." And that all members do seem to check out the information often stating facts I had not
known about or only knew a little about.
My Mother called late last night and said pictures were on their way and I should expect them today or tomorrow. I was so disappointed when today,
the only package was a DVD my boy ordered.
So I'm looking forward to tomorrow so that all may get past, " The Astronaut. " And onto the the actual title of the post.
I know I am at fault for that though, as I said, " In hindsight. " lol
But his Aunt will also be here tomorrow to confirm photos and also say what she knows of it.
Upon further research, I have found a page of Astronauts from 1958 to 1972. There were more deaths that what is stated on Canadian and USA
Astronauts. I will post that soon as well as 4 pages of early Astronomers only from the 1800's till now and the photo's from their telescopes no
matter how poor their telescopes were considered by today's standards. In those 4 pages, which by the way were released by NASA, is shown light, not
all dark, and what were said to be concave craters but were convex domes, among other anomalies that do not get shown today from yesteryear. lol The
inconsistencies between what was known then, to no apparent knowledge to what is being released now are phenomenal at best, at worst, they show photos
that have been unchanged in any way but are still in black, white and grey, yet you can still see the light and other things listed in the making of
I find this all quite exciting and am learning more at the same time.
Plus, I never back down in what I believe to be true so if proven wrong about the dates of the Astronaut or even his name, hey! I was 4 years old as
most are pointing out. But I DID listen and soak up every word he said.
Not only that, my parents, his Aunt, and his Mother also mentioned all him a LOT especially in the early 70's when it seemed EVERYONE was making SOME
kind of claim to seeing UFO's or being abducted by Aliens. lol
No one made it easy to forget had I even wanted to. But I didn't.
There are other sites I could have posted this to but it would not have been questioned at all, or if by a bit, not enough. This way, I continue to
And I actually like Ducilla. I think I have learned quite a bit about Astronauts I had not previously known. I had known some as I have been
researching for him for a long time now though.
And the Astronaut I spoke of was not an Apollo Mission and never walked on the moon. She does not seem to read that, but maybe she does and just
ignores it lol!
But I believe ANYONE who takes the time to reply to this post, either agreeing it is a good topic or not a good topic, then I should be good and
return the favor by replying back. Or at least try to.
I hope after the Astronaut is put to rest, the topic title will actually, finally be discussed.
My Signature Quote comes from my other Grand-Father, his accent was so very heavy, he did not speak English well at all, but you know? That did not
bother him which is why when he meant, ~ Yesterday is History, Tomorrow a Mystery but Today? Today is a Gift. ~ He couldn't say that in English so
being European, said it as best he could in English, ~ " Maybe Yesterday, maybe tomorrow. " ~ Jonathon James Repaye~ lol, he used to always add a
sigh at the end. Though I DO prefer the way he said it as yesterday seems as much a mystery as today...
