July 11, 2019

For three days, a rocket will be projected on the face of the Washington Monument. 

A 363-foot Saturn V rocket will appear in conjunction with an “Apollo 50: Go for the Moon” presentation July 16, 17 and 18. 

The projection will appear between 9:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. and precedes a 17-minute show on July 19 and 20 that tells the story of the first moon landing. 

The show will also be displayed on the face of the monument and will run at 9:30, 10:30 and 11:30 p.m. on both days. 

The film can be viewed from the National Mall between 9th and 12th streets in front of the Smithsonian Castle, according to a news release.
