Join us on Friday September 16th as we celebrate Rockford's contributions to space exploration and travel. We will show the film FIRST MAN, the Apollo 11 moon landing mission. YES! Rockford has contributions on Apollo 11.
The movie will be held in the Old Magna parking lot, 3915 E. State St, and gates will open at 5:30pm. Come visit several space themed activities and info booths at 6:00pm including Space Case Sarah, Solar System Ambassador for NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory. She will do some cool demonstrations, plus is bringing several telescopes to view Saturn and Jupiter, weather permitting. Several local manufacturers will be on hand with showcasing their amazing contributions to space exploration too. We will show a brief video highlighting Rockford's incredible outer space contributions before the movie starts around 7pm
