How the World celebrated the 50th year anniversary of moon landing

On July 20, 1969, millions of people around the world watched on TV as Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong took his historic step into the pages of history.

The Moon landing was also a truly global event. An estimated 650 million people around the world watched the Moon landing on TV, according to NASA.

Events were held across the globe to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing. European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst, for example, attended an event at Planetarium Berlin.

The Parkes Radio telescope in Australia, which was one of three tracking stations that received the Moon landing broadcast, commemorated the incredible events of July 20, 1969.
