On July 19th, 1969 the Apollo 11 spacecraft entered lunar orbit. It was the fourth day of the mission and just one day before Armstrong & Aldrin landed on the surface in the lunar module, Eagle (pictured here), and took the first steps on the moon.
We can’t wait to continue celebrating the 50th anniversary of this historic event with our APOLLOPALOOZA festival happening tomorrow from 10am-5pm. There will be rocket launches, food trucks, live entertainment, interactive planetarium shows and activities all throughout our lawn and exhibit hall. The first 200 guests will also get their own @NASA sticker. We hope to see you there! @ Eugene Science Center
