July 20th Moon Day

Today marks the first time man set foot on the moon, July 20th, 1969. It was Neil Armstrong who stepped out of the Lunar Module “Eagle” saying, “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” He was a part of the Apollo 11 flight, along with Michael Collins and Edwin Aldrin Jr., who made the historic landing, planting the American flag on the Moon! So every night that you look up at the moon, remember today and the landing made by those astronauts over 50 years ago.

How to celebrate – Watch the Moon. Imagine yourself an astronaut. Review footage NASA released on the landing.
