Apollo 11 Moon Landing 50th Anniversary | 1969

Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission which landed on the moon on July 20, 1969, with Neil Armstrong taking the historic first steps on the moon 6 hours later. The first steps on the moon took place at 7:56pm Pacific Time.

Apollo 11 blasted off on July 16, 1969. Neil Armstrong, Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin and Michael Collins were the astronauts on Apollo 11. Four days later, Armstrong and Aldrin landed on the moon.

“One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” – Neil Armstrong

Fifty years later, the world is remembering the historic mission, and right here in the Bay, our local museums are hosting celebratory anniversary events as well.

Join in commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the epic Apollo 11 lunar landing mission, the first time humans walked on the Moon in the entire history of mankind, on July 20th from 10 am to 5 pm.

The USS Hornet flawlessly recovered these first moon walkers and their precious load of moon rocks from the Pacific Ocean with President Richard Nixon on board and 500 million TV viewers watching around the world.

The celebration will also frame the Apollo mission within its time as we explore the past, present, and future of space exploration programs planned by NASA and private commercial space companies. Splashdown 50 offers visitors an exciting opportunity to learn about the past and how it leads into the next generation of space exploration.
