Twenty years. A blink of time in the universe but a fourth of a lifetime for most mortals. Buzz Aldrin, 59, sits at a desk in his Laguna Beach home, windows opening on a stunning view of the Emerald Bay coast of the Pacific Ocean. To his right, a wall of pictures and artwork document his career as an Air Force officer and astronaut. "July 16 will be the 20th anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch," Aldrin said. "I'll be there, at the Cape, at the exact time of liftoff, to mark that anniversary."

Buzz Aldrin, 77, the Apollo 11 astronaut who walked on the moon in 1969, plans to be among the first to stroll above the Grand Canyon in a massive, glass-bottomed observation deck known as the Skywalk. The Hualapai Indian Reservation hired Aldrin to join its March 20 opening ceremony.

Twenty years ago this week, the United States' Apollo 11 spacecraft landed the first humans on the surface of the moon, fulfilling a dream shared by poets and presidents. That accomplishment stands as one of the great feats of modern science and is one whose legacy continues to be felt today. "Other than the pyramids, I don't know what other accomplishment by man even compares with it," said Christopher Kraft, former director of Apollo mission operations.

Buzz Aldrin has faced many challenges in his life -- as an Air Force pilot manning 66 combat missions during the Korean War, a student of astronautics at MIT and one of the first astronauts to walk on the moon. Now, Aldrin will brave another test of his nerves of steel: a roomful of wide-eyed kids. Aldrin will be on hand Sunday as part of a family matinee day sponsored by Every Picture Tells a Story bookstore and the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica.

A San Diego judge has dismissed a federal suit by a man who believed he owned the watch worn by astronaut Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin Jr. during the 1969 moon walk. Stephen Morley of Long Beach filed a lawsuit seeking information from the government that he believed would authenticate the watch. Aldrin's watch was lost in the early 1970s during shipment to the Smithsonian Institution. Morley bought the watch from a college student whose father found it while walking on a beach in Santa Barbara.

Exactly 20 years after Apollo 11 roared skyward toward the first manned moon landing, astronauts Neil A. Armstrong, Edwin E. (Buzz) Aldrin Jr. and Michael Collins returned here Sunday to relive the moment. "Five . . . four . . . three . . . two . . . one . . . zero . . . we have liftoff," said the recorded voice of a launch commentator as the astronauts listened to a tape of the final 3 minutes, 15 seconds of their countdown. The tape reached "liftoff" at 9:32 a.m.

So an astronaut, a filmmaker and Shirley Temple are riding together in a parade. Sound like a joke? Guess again. Tournament of Roses officials named four grand marshals Thursday to lead the 1999 Rose Parade: Edwin E. "Buzz" Aldrin Jr., David L. Wolper, Shirley Temple Black, and for the first time, a posthumously named marshal, baseball great Jackie Robinson. Has the parade moved to the carpool lane?

Former astronaut Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin and his wife, Lois, have sold their Emerald Bay beach house for $925,000 to a Laguna Beach couple. The two-bedroom, 1,350-square-foot home was purchased by Newport Beach attorney Paul Wollam and his wife, Jean, a vice president of Lola Inc., a City of Commerce maker of women's clothing under the X.O.X.O. label. The Aldrins have moved to Los Angeles.

GI Joe doesn't look much different. He still has a scar on his right cheek, though his jaw is a bit more chiseled. His hair is still sandy-blond but it comes in black too. His eyebrows have grayed and he's showing a few finely etched wrinkles around his nose. Give the guy a break, he just turned 35. Several thousand fans of the "action figure" (please don't call him a doll) gathered Friday at a Washington hotel to help Joe celebrate his birthday--among them Edwin E. "Buzz" Aldrin Jr.
