My most prized space possessions are the memories of having in-person experiences with many astros and space figures that I admire so much. While recently talking about some of these events, I noted that at least 14 of them I can directly attribute to first learning about through the collectSPACE Sightings page. So I'd like to celebrate my breaking the 200th post mark by giving a big thank you to Robert and all who have contributed to Sightings. I'm sure many of you can top my 14. So how many Sightings sightings have you made?

Regards,
A grateful Mikie

Just in the last year, I've shaken hands with Neil Armstrong and sat in the front row during a lecture by Bill Anders thanks to Sightings. There was also a screening of "The Wonder of it All" I learned about through CS. And on Sunday I'll be at an Ed Mitchell book signing.

Woops. I misunderstood the topic. Those are space people I've met/seen, not "sightings" sightings.

Due to the information available on sightings I was fortunate to meet Al Worden and Story Musgrave a 2nd time during our last visit to Florida. Both were very pleasant and Mr Musgrave was kind enough to present us with a signed book of photographs of Australia he had taken from orbit, when he found out where we came from. It was a great thrill to meet both and particularly an astronaut from the Apollo program who I had read so much about.
