It was one small step for man and one giant leap for mankind when astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin landed on the Moon on July 20, 1969.
Montauk Observatory and Stony Brook University are partnering to present an elaborate 50th anniversary celebration of that historic event.
The event is highlighted by a screening of Todd Miller’s acclaimed documentary Apollo 11, followed by a Q&A with production team leader, Ben Feist.
The celebration will also include a round table discussion by Grumman engineers who worked on that NASA mission and an appearance by Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr. who will award each panel member with a NYS Citation in appreciation of their contribution to the space program.
Stony Brook University Professor Timothy Glotch will discuss what we’ve learned about the Moon in the past five decades. While the event is free, registration is required.
