Presley died in his Memphis mansion on 16 August
1977, at the age of 42 - yet he lives on through
On 21 July
1969 American, Neil Armstrong become the first
man to walk on the Moon.
The astronaut stepped onto the Moon's surface,
in the Sea of Tranquility, at 0256 GMT, nearly
20 minutes after first opening the hatch on the
Eagle landing craft.
His colleague Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin watched from
inside the lunar module and spoke the first
words of man on the Moon: "Tranquillity base.
The Eagle has landed."
As he put his left foot down first Mr Armstrong
declared: "That's one small step for man but one
giant leap for mankind."
He described the surface as being like powdered
charcoal and the landing craft left a crater
about a foot deep.
What the astronauts failed to see was that the
ghost of Elvis was there to great them and
indeed to serenade them with a medley of his
best loved songs.
Retrospective hauntings, where ghosts travel
into the past, are not very common but there is
well documented evidence that Elvis Presley
liked to go into the past to times in his life
which gave him most pleasure.
