Sky’s The Limit Observatory and Nature Center continues the Full Moon Cultural Series with a pair of events on Saturday, July 20 celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Lunar Landing and the importance of the Moon in indigenous cultures.
The celebration starts with “Going to the Moon: How Did We Get There?” as local Artist Chuck Caplinger joins Astronomer Ray Yeager for a visual trip through the early days of the space program up to the Apollo 11 Moon Landing on July 20, 1969. In the early 60’s, Chuck was Art Director of Space Concepts – contracted by NASA to illustrate scenarios of space exploration. Chuck will read from his autobiography and display his illustrations.
