Use WorldWide Telescope to see the Moon without space travel…

July 20, 2019 marks the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11’s historic landing on Earth’s Moon.

In WorldWide Telescope, you can visit the Moon in context in “Solar System” mode, or see what the Apollo astronauts saw on their various missions to the Moon during the 1960s and 1970s, in “Panorama” mode.

Excerpts from this "50 Years after Apollo" WWT-based video are featured in the 18 July 2019 Harvard Gazette Article on Apollo 11.

For a bit more interactivity, consider these WWT options....

If you are an EDUCATOR who would like great curriculum materials for teaching your students about the Phases of the Moon, check out the resources here.  

BONUS: Here's our favorite (non-WWT) YouTube video, by David Woods, called "Apollo 11: The Complete Descent."
