Moon Day

Lunar Landing, Moon Day, July holidays

Date When Celebrated : This observance is always celebrated on July

 Moon Day commemorates the day man first walked on the moon in 1969.

The Apollo Space program, begun by President John F. Kennedy, was created to put the first man on the moon. Apollo 11 fulfilled that dream, carrying astronauts Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Edwin Aldrin, Jr. What an amazing and historic event it was!

On July 16, 1969, Apollo 11 was launched from Cape Kennedy Space Center atop a huge Saturn V rocket. On July 20, 1969, the Lunar Module, nicknamed the "Eagle", touched down on the surface of the moon at Tranquility Base. Upon landing, Apollo 11 Commander Neil Armstrong reported "The Eagle Has Landed". A few hours later, Neil Armstrong, stepped off of the Eagle's ladder, placed one foot upon the moon's surface and proclaimed: "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind".

Amazingly and sadly, after the Apollo program ended in the 1970's, man has not yet returned to the moon. When will man walk on the moon again? No one knows.

Lunar Lander, Moon Day

Enjoy Moon Day re-living this historic day. Watch a movie on space or read a book on space flight. We suggest the movie " Apollo 13".
