With the space shuttle Discovery landing from its last mission around midday today, my post on the Horoscope of the First Moon Landing (July 20, 1969) has suddenly become popular. The chart is set for Washington DC but you may wish to recalculate it for Cape Kennedy, Florida - or for the surface of Earth's Moon, if you have the coordinates. Plus, I suppose a Heliocentric horoscope for the landing could be interesting, too.

And perhaps you've already put in your bid to house one of the retired NASA shuttles? One may be on display soon at a museum near you!
