Thought I'd follow up my most recent astronaut sighting with a photo of my first astronaut meeting back in April 1995 when I was privileged to meet astronaut Bill Shepherd and cosmonaut Vladimir Titov. They were very nice and gracious people. A real honor to be standing between these two great space flyers. Too bad the sun was at such a bad angle in the photo. Anyone else have stories about meeting these two?
