MARSHALL - A planetarium show, “The Eagle Has Landed: Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11,” will be shown at 5, 7 and 9 p.m. Thursday, July 18, at Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall.

July 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the first Apollo landing on the moon. Project Apollo was NASA’s program to build and fly the first spaceships to take humans to another world. Learn more about what made Project Apollo so special, and enjoy a virtual journey at the SMSU Planetarium.

The planetarium is tucked back in the college. Park in the front north lot along state Highway 23. Take the first wide sidewalk going west alongside the Individualized Learning Center; it is in the Science and Math building on a small square.

Tickets are $5 and will be available at the door.
