Events Mark Moon Landing Anniversary


NASA has a full week of events planned to mark the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. In fact, this morning, legendary astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins will return to the Florida launch pad where they set off on their amazing adventure 50 years ago.

Other events include a special light show on the National Mall involving the Washington Monument and there's a unique corn maze in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. And over in Wapakoneta [[WAH-pah-kuh-NET-uh]], Ohio, the hometown of the late Neil Armstrong? The Air & Space Museum will mark the 50th anniversary with programs that coincide with the city's Summer Moon Festival.

But if you’re lucky enough to be at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida, at 9:3am ET, visitors will be able to watch original footage of the Apollo 11 launch precisely 50 years after it unfolded.
