Astronaut Neil Armstrong looks at the U.S. flag he planted on the surface of the moon moments before. The cloth flag was rigged with wires so it looked like it was waving in a breeze.
Lunar legacy

Fifty years ago Saturday, U.S. astronaut Neil Armstrong took “one small step” onto the surface of the moon, changing the world and inspiring generations of scientists.
The Apollo 11 mission, which took place July 16-24, 1969, is being remembered across the nation this week with special presentations, lectures, and screenings of movies and television specials focusing on the lunar landing.
Locally, the Grayson County Public Library has a day of activities planned Saturday to mark the anniversary of Armstrong’s moon walk.
