If you live in northern California, celebrate all things lunar at Moonfest, held July 19 at the NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California. "Moonfest 2009: From Apollo to LCROSS, and Beyond" is a free festival for the whole family. While the event will focus on the Apollo 11 landing, it will also showcase other lunar missions, such as LCROSS, which launched successfully last month. The Planetary Society's local volunteers will be handing out mini MoonPies -- the original lunar treat -- at our booth, courtesy of the Chattanooga Bakery. Enjoy talks by such notables as Anthony Colaprete, LCROSS Principal Investigator; model rocket launches; musical performances; and more.
