Neil Armstrong Memorial Service to be Held at Washington National Cathedral

The life and career of astronaut Neil Armstrong will be honored at a public memorial service held at the Washington National Cathedral on September 13.

Scheduled to start at 10 am, dignitaries such as NASA Administrator Charles Bolden and other community and political leaders, members of the Armstrong family and members of NASA, including current astronauts will pay their respects to the first man to ever walk on the moon, who died on August 25.

A limited number of seats will be available to the public, on a first-come, first-served basis. Those interested in paying their respects should contact Christine Peterson.

Washington National Cathedral is a poignant place for such a memorial service to occur, as Armstrong and his fellow astronauts, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins presented the Cathedral with a moon rock on July 21, 1974, which they brought back with them from their Apollo 11 mission in 1969.

Full details regarding the service will be announced as and when plans are finalized.
