Mercury Gemini Apollo
I don't think every family did this. But we saw every single darn blastoff. Mercury, Gemini, Apollo were the names of the programs with Apollo being the one that went to the moon.
At the suggestion of my small writing group (originally dubbed Inner Circle now Poker Group) though we do not play Poker, I wrote a piece about watching the launch specifically the Apollo 11 launch. There were some great transcripts and television versions available on the web. Actually pretty fun to go through the actual countdown with the family watching.
The Apollo 11 rocket on it's launchpad 1969.
