Yes, it is National Moon Day today. We observe it on July 20th each year because Neil Armstrong first walk on the Moon’s surface on this date back in 1969.
And, yes, I do remember exactly what I was doing on the day! I was touring the U.S. with a high school choral group called the Young Floridians in Concert. We were sponsored by Central Florida YFC and were travelling through upstate New York on that day, heading for our next show.
To help in some small way to mark this auspicious day, I’m contributing one of my own Moon shots I like the best.
If you’d like to leave a comment, especially if you have a story to share about what you were doing on that day, please feel free!
