UNC Asheville and the Astronomy Club of Asheville Present: 

To the Moon! Reflections on Apollo after 50 Years

A presentation by Dominic Lesnar

 Tuesday, July 9, 7:30 p.m.

Reuter Center Manheimer Room


With the 50th anniversary of the first human steps on the moon just ahead, UNC Asheville's Department of Physics and Astronomy and the Astronomy Club of Asheville will present a special commemoration, and weather permitting, a lunar viewing. 

It was on July 20, 1969 that American astronauts, Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module
pilot Buzz Aldrin, landed the Apollo Lunar Module on the surface of the moon. At roughly 11 p.m. EDT that night, Armstrong took the first human steps on the lunar surface, followed minutes later by Aldrin. It was a truly unforgettable moment for people all over the world who watched on live television, and after the evening's talk, those in attendance will have the opportunity to briefly share their own memories and reflections. Then, skies permitting, telescopes will be set up outside for lunar viewing.

 Admission is free and everyone is welcome.
