We Land On The Moon Coloring Book (Based on NASA'a Project Apollo): To the Moon (1969)

This is the day, July 20th. People first landed on the Moon 48 years ago.

"Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first two humans, who were Americans, on the Moon. Mission commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin landed the lunar module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:18 UTC. Armstrong became the first to step onto the lunar surface six hours later on July 21 at 02:56:15 UTC; Aldrin joined him about 20 minutes later. They spent about two and a quarter hours together outside the spacecraft, and collected 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of lunar material to bring back to Earth." from Wikipedia

So now I would like to share the story in common with all 6 of the previous coloring books: The section "To The Moon." Approximately half the pages in the coloring books was devotes to this same feature.

The photos these are based on are probably very familiar to you. The conversion of these images into their basic lines helps remind us how iconic they were/are.

Happy Moon day!

This one is just goofy. I think they left something critical out of the image. Since it was in every version of this coloring book this "wrong" image was carefully reproduced in each one.
