Moon landing to be commemorated in Sturgeon Bay

A Door County group can help bring the history of the first moon landing to life for people who missed it fifty years ago.  The March program of the  Door County Astronomical Society will focus on the moon landing that took place in the summer of 1969.

Society member Dave Lenius of Sturgeon Bay told anyone is welcome to learn more about National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) by attending the March meeting.



Lenius encourages students interested in careers related to astronomy and any potential hobbyists to consider joining the Door County Astronomical Society. The March monthly meeting will be on March 5th at the Ray and Ruthie Stonecipher Astronomy Center in Sturgeon Bay.
