Moon Rocks Viewing

Moon Rocks Viewing

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, please join us for a rare glimpse at actual rocks from the moon retrieved during the Apollo 11 mission. The moon rocks, given to the state of Georgia by President Richard Nixon, will only be on display one day, so don't miss out!

Attendees can also watch archival footage related to the moon landing and tour the new "Moon Rocks!" exhibit in the Russell Central Gallery curated by graduate student intern Sarah Anderson. The first 50 guests will get to sample astronaut ice cream. 

This event is sponsored by the Russell Library and the Georgia Capitol Museum. The event is free and open to the public. Please contact Kaylynn Washnock at washnock@uga.edu or 706-542-5788 for more information.
