    Sit in the desert watching the night sky June 1947 somewhere around Roswell. Always had an interest in weather balloons especially disc shaped ones.

    Oh go on, I'll allow it :-)

    Maybe sporting moment, musical moment and historic moment would be good.

    I've done Music so will add the other two.

    Sporting moment - being at the Rumble in the Jungle. Boxing and endurance at its best.

    Historic- being on the beach at omaha during the D Day landings. Can't imagine the bravery pain and heartache that day.

    The arrow in the eye is now being disputed, they say he was chopped down surrounded by his Housecarls towards the end of the battle and then badly defiled to such a degree that it took his bit on the side Edith Swan Neck to identify his body by a mark in the groin area
    I tend to agree with you and the Bayeux Tapestry, he copped for one in the eye

    People misread the Tapestry.
    It is considered that Harold was indeed chopped down and that the eye episode in the Tapestry is of someone else. Note he's not wearing a crown as the arrow sticks out where as there is one in the Tapestry being chopped down and does have a crown. People thought it was the eye incident as its depicted over the word 'King' in the script below.
