North Texas: Hundreds of people celebrate the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11's moon landing

Hundreds of people celebrated the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11’s moon landing on 'Moon Day' at the Frontiers of Flight Museum.
 
According to Museum representatives, Apollo 11 anniversary is mostly a busy day for them, but it was 50th anniversary so the day was more crowdie. People of all ages, young and old, came to remember this achievement in American history.
 

Kevin Cobble, with the Dallas Astronomical Society, said that going to another planet, going to another object, and landing itself is a great idea. Cobble was just 13-years-old at Boy Scout camp when he watched Neil Armstrong taking his first steps on the moon. He stayed awake all night and listened to the mission of landing on the moon on the radio. At that time, he didn’t expect us to land on the moon in the next five years. That moment of Neil Armstrong inspired him to pursue his degree in astronomy.
 
That is the reason he visited Frontiers of Flight Museum on 'Moon Day', hoping to share his interest in space with others.
 
Neil Armstrong’s landing on the moon is celebrated on this day, says Rylie English. She was a part of a group of Girl Scouts who visited the museum to earn their 'Moon Day Badge'
 
Saturday morning was different outside the Museum. Officers said that they usually expect around 1,500 visitors on ‘Moon Day,’ but this 50th celebration was different and the number exceeded this year.
