Apollo11 50th celebration on the Mall

I went to the display on the Mall (Washington DC) last night (yes, in that heat!). Below are a few pics (A99M2 + Minolta 80-200) of the many I took. The video covered the operation from assembly of the system to the splashdown return. I was very impressed with the excellent quality of the projection.


Capitol behind us

Washington Monument in front. Lots and lots of people so impossible to avoid  heads in the images.

Static image for ~30 mins before start of video.

One stage of the assembly

Under way.

More thrust

Lander on the Moon's surface (expand original to see better)

Reentry to Earth
