It's one thing to look up at the moon in the night sky. It's another thing to do that when you are the second human ever to walk on it.

Former astronaut Buzz Aldrin on Wednesday tweeted "Goodnight Moon!" He wrote he's still "thinking about you" and called his time on the lunar surface the "best bouncy house ever."

The 88-year-old was the lunar module pilot when he and mission commander Neil Armstrong landed on the moon on July 21, 1969 during the Apollo 11 mission.

    I am reminded of a quote from the movie Apollo 13

    "From now on, we live in a world where man has walked on the moon. And it's not a miracle, we just decided to go."

    What was the context of him making this statement? This is rather incomplete reporting.

    Good night moon might give people the idea that he is dying.

    I was in the jungle 50 miles North of Saigon. My infantry unit was securing a Rome Plow mission that was cutting a 1 mile by 1/2 mile Big Red One patch out of the jungle. When Apollo astronauts passed over they (supposedly) could see the flattened jungle with a huge 1 made out of the standing 100 foot tall trees in the middle. The downed trees were sprayed with Agent Orange to inhibit the regeneration of the jungle. Ridiculous.

    I remember being in my parents' living room watching Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin live on TV. I had a camera set up to take stills off the TV. What an awesome time.
