MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A man who has seen Earth and the moon like no other was in town to share his stories Thursday.
Captain William James Lovell visited the capital city for a benefit for Faulkner University.
His most well know space missions were Apollo 8 and 13.
Lovell says Apollo 8 sticks in his mind the most, though an accident nearly cost him and his crew their lives aboard Apollo 13.
Apollo 8 was the first manned mission to the moon and during their mission they sent back spectacular photos of the Earth and moon.
