In the Summer of 1969, the world watched as American astronauts achieved the unthinkable: humans landing and walking on the surface of the moon. 50 years later, the Apollo 11 mission still an achievement of human ingenuity.
Saturday, July 20th from 7 to 11 pm in Toby’s Plaza in University Circle (11440 Uptown Ave, Cleveland) you can join in a free celebration of the Apollo 11 moon landing anniversary.
As part of the Uptown Summer Series (an event series that brings free community activities to University Circle), the family-friendly night will feature a “moon-walk” bounce house, solar system slingshot, and “Armstrong” strength games, courtesy of the Tremont Athletic Club. The Museum of Natural History will have telescopes available for sky-watching, along with astronomers to help you identify your peeks at the stars. At 8:30 pm, the museum will give a short presentation at about the moon landing mission prior to an outdoor screening of 2018’s First Man starring Ryan Gosling.
It can be easy to take great moments in history for granted, but this coming event can help us appreciate the crew of the Apollo 11’s achievement.
