Amazing, @Bazza !!!
Wow, that must have been something to see.
Thanks - it was very historic - we knew we had to go see it, since we lived so close. Of course, looking back now it was even more significant than anyone realized at the time, for the most part.

Add to the story - I had been up late the night before partying. Hey I was in my 20's and single! Glad I didn't blow this off just because I was zonked! :)
