Free and open to the public, this fun, family-focused community event will be held on the Hutchinson Community College lawn. Featuring hands-on, Moon and space-themed activities from various community organizations and live science demonstrations from Cosmosphere Science Educators.
After dark, a showing of the 1969 CBS footage of the Moon landing will be shown, followed by a Smithsonian Channel documentary, titled “The Day We Walked On The Moon”. This documentary, exclusively available for screening to Smithsonian-affiliated museums, tells the mission’s story through interviews with key figures in Mission Control, contemporary astronauts and the families of Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong.
To wrap up the event, Cosmosphere Science Educators will host a Moon and planet observing, using a giant 16” diameter telescope. Wear your favorite attire from 1969! Held in conjunction with Hutchinson Community College and Hutch Rec.
Bring your lawn chairs, blankets and bug spray, and don't forget to wear your favorite attire from 1969!
