Apollo 11 blasted off on July 16, 1969. Neil Armstrong, Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin and Michael Collins were the astronauts on Apollo 11.
Four days later, Armstrong and Aldrin landed on the moon. They landed on the moon in the Lunar Module. It was called the Eagle. Collins stayed in orbit around the moon. He did experiments and took pictures.
At 1:54 p.m., having spent a total of 21.5 hours on the moon, the lunar module blasted back to where Collins waited in the Columbia. The two vehicles docked, and the crew and samples transferred to the Columbia before the Eagle was jettisoned into space. The astronauts then headed back home.

Pink Floyd’s epic 1973 album The Dark Side of the Moon isn’t actually about the Moon – it’s mostly about madness and greed and fame – but the orb plays a big part in its underlying concept and, duh, gives the LP its name. “Brain Damage” and “Eclipse” are nearly inseparable and close the album on a cathartic note, drawing to an end one of the most perfect records ever made.
“Blue Moon of Kentucky” is a bluegrass song written by Bill Monroe in 1946. Paul McCartney officially released a live performance of this song on his 1991 Unplugged album.
Before that, “Blue Moon of Kentucky” was part of the set list for the 1972 Wings Over Europe tour. A live performance from this tour was released in 2018 on Wings Over Europe (an album released as a bundle with the Wings / Red Rose Speedway boxset).
Worth noting as well, in 1995, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr performed a version of it, released on the Bonus DVD of the Beatles Anthology video series.
