July 20, 2019 : Rick Evans is coordinating with the Montgomery Biscuits
baseball stadium to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11
landing on the Moon on July 20, before the baseball game. He's trying
to invite the folks from Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville. Rick is also planning a laser show before
the game to recreate the event. Rick is hoping that AAS will have some telescopes (including the solar scope before sunset) set up for the fans to see. Maybe we'll be able to see Jupiter and Saturn through the glare of the stadium lights, but first pitch will be about 6:00pm.
The good news is that this will be on a Saturday evening. The bad
news -- the Moon doesn't rise until about the 9th inning.
