Forty years ago, July 19,1969, I was a young boy who watched - along with millions of other earthlings - as Apollo 11 landed on the Moon, and Neil Armstrong left prints in the dust of another world for the very first time. It doesn't get more historic than that!

If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area you can celebrate that historic moment on Sunday, July 19, 2009 at Moonfest, held at NASA Ames Research Center, where you can enjoy all things lunar -- from MoonPies to model rocket launches.

"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 NASA's other lunar accomplishments, such as Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite mission,
which launched successfully in June 2009. Moonfest will also feature scientific talks.
