It’s arguably one of the biggest stories in space for 2019: the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. The event isn’t lost on the Department of Cultural Affairs.
To celebrate and honor the occasion, a collaboration is taking place under the umbrella of “Moon Fiesta.” The party includes the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, The New Mexico History Museum, The Screen, The National Hispanic Cultural Center, New Mexico State Libraries and the New Mexico Museum of Space History in Alamogordo.
The Alamogordo institution has extended the celebration to a year-long series of events, including screenings, new exhibits and community outreach.
