    The Washington Monument became a rocket for the Apollo 11 anniversary

    The Washington Monument became a rocket for the Apollo 11 anniversary

    The Smithsonian Air and Space Museum is projecting a Saturn V rocket on the east side of the Washington Monument to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

    A large image of the Saturn V rocket shone Tuesday evening on the Washington Monument as part of a week-long series of events in Washington to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

    The 363-foot projection of the rocket will also be flashed on the monument Wednesday and Thursday from 9:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. It’s part of the Apollo 50 Festival, which includes performances, exhibits and speakers on the Mall.


    To see the rocket projection, viewers can go in front of the Smithsonian Castle between Ninth and 12th streets NW. For information, go to airandspace.si.edu/go-for-the-moon.


    On Friday and Saturday, a 17-minute show called “Apollo 50: Go for the Moon” will re-create the launch of Apollo 11. According to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, the show will appear on the Washington Monument and screens, running at 9:30 p.m., 10:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. both nights.

    Another attempt by Trump to flex his war mongering muscles.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.
