SCENE | Cape Kennedy, 1969.
Photos of spectators at Cape Kennedy (now named Cape Canaveral) by Bill Epperidge and Lynn Pelahm for LIFE, 1969.
45 summers ago, we went to the Moon. Thousands of people camped out on beaches and on roads near Kennedy Space Center to watch Apollo 11 liftoff. Quite a scene, and just one month before Woodstock. Now I get what Bryan Adams was singing about.
