About

Join us on Friday, July 19, 2019, for a special Splashdown 50 Anniversary Astronomical Viewing Overnight!

We welcome you aboard the USS Hornet Sea, Air & Space Museum to learn about her service during the Apollo 11 mission and observe the night sky from the Flight Deck!

USS Hornet served as the recovery vessel for the Apollo 11 & 12 lunar landing missions—the spaceflights that landed the first humans on the Moon nearly 50 years ago—and is the ultimate viewing platform from which to enjoy this celestial event with family, friends, and fellow moongazers.
