Chester'S PREMIERE ASTRONOMY SOCIETY

But While We Wait For 2024.....

       E. H. “Jack” McClure

        of Chester, Illinois

     was a proud American

  and an early supporter of

  NASA’s missions. Having

        been born in 1911,

       he had seen many

   advances in technology

           during his life,

   but space travel intrigued

   him the most. In July 1969

  he composed this song and

  lyrics to commemorate the

    1st manned Lunar landing. His son and two grandchildren, Michael II and Christine,              have incorporated his song (see the video featured above) in a tribute to the 50th

           Anniversary our first Lunar stroll AND the 25th Anniversary of his passing.

Jack’s Earthly mission ended 25 years after the Apollo 11 landing, but the pioneering spirit                                                      that inspired him continues…
