Gateway to the Stars: The Apollo Missions & the Future of Human Space Exploration

Join Gateway Arch National Park on Saturday, June 15 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing with stargazing on the Arch grounds and a program by Washington University Ph.D. candidate Anna Schonwald. This program is FREE and open to all ages. Reservations are not required.

Meet in the Education Classroom (lower level below the Mezzanine Map) at 8pm to learn about the past, present and future of human space exploration. Weather permitting, telescope viewing led by volunteers from the St. Louis Astronomical Society will take place following the presentation at the Arch’s west entrance plaza until 10 p.m. The almost-full moon and Jupiter will be highlighted.

The sky will need to be at least partly clear for telescope viewing to take place. Attendees should call 314-655-1708 the afternoon of the event for an update on the weather. The indoor presentation will take place rain or shine.
