Thanks to the Frontiers of Flight Museum, you don’t have to visit a “galaxy far, far away” to experience the wonders of space exploration. Star gazers and space enthusiasts of all ages can now trek over to the family-fun activities scheduled Saturday for “Moon Day 2012.”
In 2009, Moon Day was created in Dallas by 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. This year, Moon Day will commemorate the 43rd anniversary of the lunar landing, which took place when Apollo 11 touched the surface on July 20, 1969.
Festivities run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Frontiers of Flight Museum, 6911 Lemmon Ave. Cost is $5-8. Museum members and children 3 and under are free.
