Apollo 11 (2019) takes a look at the mission to land on the moon led by commander Neil Armstrong and pilots Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins.
July 20, 2019, marks the 50th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 moon landing.
Join us in the Health Sciences theatre 1150 to celebrate this awesome achievement with a free screening of the 2019 documentary film Apollo 11, directed by Todd Douglas Miller.
When Neil Armstrong steps onto the moon 56 minutes into the film, it will be exactly 50 years since that momentous event took place--so come on out and join in the celebration!
The Observatory will be open after the film, so plan to head over there afterwards for a star party (weather permitting).
