Washington Salutes Apollo 11

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, the National Air and Space Museum projected a life-sized rocket on the Washington Monument last night.  The event is part of the museum’s celebration of the first moon landing.  The 363-foot Saturn V rocket will be projected on the east face of the Washington Monument again tonight and Thursday.  The rocket was used in the Apollo 11 mission that launched 50 years ago yesterday. Plus, they’ll show a special movie on the side of the monument. Awesome.
