More than 1,500 star gazers and space enthusiasts of all ages attended Moon Day 2017 at the Frontiers of Flight Museum.
Thanks to the Frontiers of Flight Museum North Texans didn't have to a “galaxy far, far away” to experience the wonders of space exploration due to the overwhelming participation at Moon Day 2017, presented by Beal Bank this summer. More than 1,500 star gazers and space enthusiasts of all ages had an opportunity to enjoy astronomy, incredible science exhibits and even an inflatable planetarium as part of the family fun activities.
The annual celebration has grown to become biggest annual space exposition in Texas. The event was created in 2009 by the Frontiers of Flight Museum and the National Space Society of North Texas as an annual event to celebrate space exploration on or near the anniversary of the first Moon landing. The festival is a science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) focused space-themed public event, which continues to attract participants across North Texas and beyond. This year, Moon Day commemorated the 48th anniversary of the first lunar landing, which took place when Apollo 11 touched down on July 20, 1969.
“While the anniversary of the first Moon landing serves as a reason to celebrate, the Museum and the National Space Society of North Texas are also committed to showcasing the present and future of space exploration,” said Cheryl Sutterfield-Jones, President and CEO, Frontiers of Flight Museum. “Moon Day’s extensive content is provided by local, regional, and national space-related organizations, who work to inspire all ages to embrace a scientific and technological future.”
