50th anniversary of apollo 11
posted by soe 1:26 am

Most of you probably know today was the 50th anniversary of the first human to walk on the moon. Some of you may have seen that to celebrate the Smithsonian Institution opted to do a projection of the Apollo 11 on the Washington Monument.

I went down tonight for the last showing of the film at 11:30 p.m. and hung out with thousands of other people (late night owls unite!) to watch in the heat (the heat index was still well over 90 at that hour). Here are some of the images from the event (mouse over the image to get the controls or click on the picture to go see them larger on Flickr):

Kudos to everyone involved in the production and execution!
