One Giant Step At The Adler

Planetarium plans day of celebration for 40th anniversary of moon landing

It'll almost be like being there ... sort of.

Chicago's Adler Planetarium plans to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11's lunar landing today.

Special events planned Monday include a chance for visitors to touch a real moon rock and eat free cake at 3:17 p.m., the exact time Apollo 11 landed on the moon. The planetarium plans to stay open late for a free telescope viewing, weather permitting.

Visitors also can put their shoeprints in clay for a take-home memento of the astronaut footprints on the moon.
