I saw the date and remembered that I had my first look at the moon this date in 1957. Telescope making came within a year or so.
I've seen plenty in these 60 years; the thing that bothers me most is light pollution. We had so little of it when I started out. Sixth magnitude was the norm for a dark sky only a few miles out of town.
I got so old in the process -- I hope that my next 60 years will be easier.
