Good Times at the Lunar Legacy Celebration Begin July 20

17 July 2018

Individuals of the Astrogeology Team will be at the Lunar Legacy Celebration, July 20, at the Orpheum Theatre in Flagstaff, Arizona. Not only will you not want to miss this fun family-friendly event, it is totally free. The city will be celebrating Flagstaff’s scientific role in the Apollo Moon missions and the Flagstaff Lunar Legacy 18-month celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the first Moon landing.

You can arrive as early as 5 p.m., and festivities begin at 5:30 p.m.

Subject matter experts will provide demonstrations and information about the Moon, particularly the astronaut training, instrument testing, and mapping that took place in northern Arizona. In addition, there will be activities for children, telescope viewing, science experiments, rover activities and more. At 8 p.m. you can enjoy a free concert: two bands will play space-themed music, and you will find so much more to do and see at the celebration. See a timetable of events here.

Visitor can buy sustenance and beverages, including "Apollo IPA" by the Grand Canyon Brewing Company.
