If you are near Washington DC, you should come battle the crowds and endure the heat and muggy weather to see the Washington Monument. They are projecting the Saturn V5 Rocket for Apollo 11 projected on it at 9:30pm and then an experience this Friday and Saturday night. I seen it last night and was blown away at how awesome this was. It should be done often as the 1:1 scale of the rocket on the monument was unreal. It wasn't just a static photo projected but appeared to be a video with vented gasses and smoke emitting from the rocket.
I will be there again this evening and tomorrow evening if you would like to meet up. email me
It was so hot that the ice cream vendor probably made enough money to purchase a private tropical island.
”A 363-foot projection of the shuttle will appear on the 555-foot national monument through Thursday evening, from 9:30 to 11:30 p.m. each night. On Friday and Saturday nights, the monument will become the backdrop for a 17-minute show recreating the launch of the spacecraft. The show will run at 9:30, 10:30 and 11:30 p.m. each night.”
Wednesday I got to meet two of the ley people behind this amazing show. Nick Partridge and Katie Moyer of the National Air and Space Museum are two of my favorite people right now and over the past year made this amazing show a reality.
I have asked this show be considered yearly as it is absolutely amazing to see in person and to celebrate the Apollo program and humans stepping foot on the moon.
