    The National Air and Space Museum on Tuesday night projected the Saturn V rocket image on the Washington Monument in DC in honor of Apollo 11 moon mission anniversary.

    According to media reports, the event is part of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.

    According to NBC News, from Tuesday to Thursday, the 363-foot Saturn V rocket will be projected on the east face of the Washington Monument — the side facing the Capitol Building — for two hours each night, from 9:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. local time.

    Local netizens have shared on social media spectacular footage of the life-sized video projection of the legendary Saturn V on the launchpad.

    The Saturn V rocket was used by NASA for space missions between 1967 and 1973, including the Apollo 11 mission that put the first human, Neil Armstrong, on the moon.
