Astronaut on the dock

!Astronaut hits the dock You never know who will show up in Campbell River. Last weekend, at Coast Discovery Marina, it was former astronaut Bill Anders (centre) who arrived in his yacht Apogee and is joined on the dock by marina manager Dave Jones (left) and owner Derik Pallan. Anders was celebrating the 45th anniversary of the first moon landing. In December 1968, Anders piloted the Apollo 8 mission, the first manned flight to reach and orbit the moon. He also took the photograph of the “Earth rise” and later offered this famous quote, “We came all this way to explore the moon, and the most important thing is that we discovered the Earth.” - Submitted
