MANILA — The United Nations General Assembly, through resolution 76/76 on “International cooperation in the peaceful uses of outer space” in 2021, declared every July 20th of each year to be celebrated worldwide as “International Moon Day.”
The date marked the 53rd anniversary of the first landing by humans on the Moon as part of the Apollo 11 lunar mission.

The “International Moon Day” celebrates the day humans first walked on the moon in 1969. NASA reported the first step of mankind on the moon to be the single greatest technological achievement of all time.

Neil Armstrong was the first human to have walked on the moon’s surface at 2:56 AM that day. (ai/mtvn)
