Look up! The Moon in Fact and Fancy

Few things have ignited imaginations like the Moon. People have looked up to see the Moon wax and wane over millennia, inspiring poets, scientists, and everyday people. It continues to do so.

July 20, 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of man’s first Moon landing. Has that diminished the Moon’s mysteries or its pull on the imagination?  Not at all. It took both skill and a great deal of imagination to land on the Moon then return to Earth.

Read about the Moon in fact and fiction as we celebrate this important anniversary.
