The National Cathedral houses a moon rock that Neil brought back from his fateful mission on July, 20th 1969.

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden will be speaking at the event as well as other dignitaries.

Neil died last week at the age of 82 years old after complications from heart surgery. Neil will always be remembered for taking “one giant leap for mankind” as he stepped off the Apollo 11 lunar lander Eagle and onto the surface of the moon on July 20, 1969.
