So accurately was Apollo 11 aimed at the moon that mission controllers decided (o cancel plans for a midcourse correc- tion Wednesday, but planned a imaU rocket burn today to tune up the flight path. In a near-flawless perform- ance, the spacecraft Wednesday developed only two trouble spots, both of which mission controllers said posed DO threat to the mission. The controllers said a flow in- dicator in an oxygen vent usec to force waste water into space was giving a reading thought to se too low. Controllers said they bad devised a test for today to determine if the sensor was al fault. They said alternate sys lerns were available. Collins also reported some dif flculty in making star sightings Controllers attributed this to the attitude of the spacecraft in re- lation to the stars used in Ihi sighting. They said sligh changes in attitude caused the stars to "move" more than Col lins expected when he was using whether the unmanned space- craft would try to land and then return moon soil to the earth, as some reports have speculated. The Apollo 11 crew has main- tained a business-like attitude ever since their Wednesday launch at Cape Kennedy. Fla. Unlike their predecessors on Apollo 10, they have'held their chatter with mission control to the on-board navigation equip- ment.

Armstrong, after epeated urging by the ground, gave a brief travelogue. From miles out in ipace, Armstrong said, the crew could see most of North Ameri- ca and parts of south America. "We have not been able to vis- ually pick up the Hawaiian is and chain, but we can clearly see the western coast of North Vmerica, the United States, the San Joaquin Valley, the High Sierra and Mexico." said Arm- strong, and then as far south to the northern coast of south America.

Observatory director Sir Bernard Lovell said Luna 15 was in an eliptical orbit almost exactly two hours long and 600 to l.JOO miles above the moon. He added after checking his big radio telescope, the Moon nain listening post for Luna IS .nee it was launched Sunday, hat it was sending back heaps" of data.
