July 19, 2019 marks 50 years since astronauts first stepped foot on the moon. Before their historic journey, they first left footprints in Flagstaff. Many would be surprised to know of Flagstaff's affiliation with the training of every astronaut for the lunar landing.

In celebration, the city of Flagstaff, Lowell Observatory, and Northern Arizona University have organized many events from lectures to exhibits in honor of this historic day.
