Witnessing Uranus Flyby at JPL

From the time I can remember I have always been interested in the night sky and our place in the universe. I read a lot of books on Astronomy when I was very young and was hooked on the Space Program from the beginning. Being born at the exact right time to witness the birth of the Space Program and the moon landings as well as watch the technology of the planet explode has been a wild ride. One of the most interesting times I had with respect to imagery was watching the flyby of Uranus moon Miranda at the JPL auditorium as the photos came in from the spacecraft. Each time we see the first images of a Planet or Small Solar System Body is an adventure for me.
