In July 1969, 600 million people, on all continents, followed the first step of a man on the moon. 50 years later, we have the urge to experience this enthusiasm for the moon in a global, universal movement that transcends all borders. We join the event On the Moon Again on July 13, 2019 and invite passersby to observe the moon and share the wonder.
On the occasion of On the Moon Again event we want to meet up with Moon Gallery artists and friends, give updates on the past events and discuss future plans. We will deploy Moon Gallery plate on ILEWG *lander, which just arrived from IGLUNA** campaign.
Join us for Moon Gallery meet up, astronomy & moon-tinis, accompanied by Star Wars music.
