Friday July 16, 1987, 5:55 p.m. PDT (sic from 20 years ago today LATimes newspaper article) Midlands TX. 18 month old Jessica McClure was pulled from the well in her aunt's backyard she had fallen into 58 1/2 hours before. This was national news. CNN was brand new and was providing nearly 24/7 coverage.
Great event! Let's take a look. - One thing first, though: Are you sure this was PDT and not local time in Midland (CDT)? It doesn't make a lot of difference, but it makes some. - Note that the Caplunar is magnificent!

I knew you were going to ask that. That's why I put in the "sic". That's what the newspaper said, and the LATimes is the only account I found that gave the time she was brought out of the well, although the 58 and a half hours is quoted all over the place.

If I find anything different, I'll update.

I have just discovered that we were several months off on the date of this event. It's embarrassing when I praise excellent charts that didn't even exist for the event in question :(

The event was in October, not July. I'll rework this from scratch. Sorry, folks.

Jessica McClure was pulled to safety October 16, 1987, in Midland, TX. An LA Times article from the 18th lists 7:55 PM as the time which, given the two-hour discrepancy from the 5:55 PM listed previously, seems to mean that 7:55 PM was the Pacific time. (It was one day earlier, on 10/17, that a separate times article stated "5:55 PM PDT," the one JSAD saw. They had apparently corrected this by the next day, but the original is still afloat.)

"As hundreds of bone-weary rescuers and onlookers cheered in jubilation, 18-month-old Jessica McClure was pulled to safety Friday night, 58 1/2 hours after she fell into an abandoned well," the Los Angeles Times began.

"Baby Jessica," 18 months old, owned the nation's heart and attention for 56 hours after she fell down a well in her aunt's backyard. It was one of the first true news media frenzies ("media circus") due to CNN's on-site, around-the-clock coverage.

Primarily, the charts show the celebrity and news saturation. There are slight benefic tokens of the event - the Venus absorbing national attention for the week, Jupiter just barely eeking its way into partile conjunction with CanQ Moon for the rescue - mostly, though, it's the media event, not the celebration quality.

Since this became so gigantic a national event, including involvement of both President Reagan and Vice President Bush, I thought I'd check for Washington. The charts are a little better - pretty consistently in the right direction - but still nothing to brag large about for the rescue.

BTW, through this whole time Saturn and Uranus were hovering together on different angles. It strikes me that the main event was one of those "trapped vs. freedom" events that often bring Saturn and Uranus out together. The Cansolar is quite excellent! The Caplunar captures especially the national dread, the Canlunar the trapped-freedom tension and an ultimately victorious note.
