Apollo 11 anniversary stuff

Quite a bit of it about today, though obviously not as much as there was for last year’s fortieth anniversary of the Moon landings. NASA TV is running a few things, see here for the schedule. Most of the stuff starts at 6pm BST, shortly after this entry is posted.

If you arrive too late, then there’s always a ready supply of videos. This one from the fortieth anniversary, a longer one here, this BBC interview with Neil Armstrong or maybe this video of mission control, now with restored audio.

If you’re in a rush, then maybe enjoy this picture of celebrations on the ground after the Eagle had Landed. For more contemporary lunar exploration, this website gives the position of the LRO probe above the lunar surface. Its like Heavens Above, but for eyes on the Moon.
