Apollo 12 was the sixth crewed flight in the United States Apollo program and the second to land on the Moon. It was launched on 14 November 1969 from the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida four months after the successful Apollo 11 mission.

Commander Charles ‘Pete’ Conrad and Lunar Module Pilot Alan L Bean performed just over one day and seven hours of lunar surface activity while Command Module Pilot Richard F Gordon remained in lunar orbit. The landing site for the mission was planned to be the southeastern portion of the Ocean of Storms.

Come along and join us tonight as we remember the events of 50 years ago and enjoy a Night Sky Experience when, weather permitting, we’ll be viewing the natural wonders of the night sky through our large telescopes from a dark sky location.
