Just as a heads up the BBC will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Moon landings with a special Star Gazing Live program Details here :-
Excitement is mounting as we approach the 20th July 2019 -- the 50th anniversary of the first Apollo Moon landing. The media is starting to swing into action and there is bound to be lots of interest generated over the coming weeks.
Professor Brian Cox and Dara O Briain will return to our screens in a BBC Stargazing Special on the 15th July. The BBC are also showing a feature length documentary "8 Days to the Moon and Back" on 17th July. More details of these and their other programmes can be seen at this recent BBC press release: www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/latestnews/2019/moon-landings-50
As you may know the Go Stargazing team are keen to promote any events that are taking place as part of the anniversary commemorations through our gostargazing.co.uk/apollo50 events page. The events we feature will be shared with our social media followers as well as syndicated to other online portals in an attempt to reach as wide an audience as possible.
