Reaching Tranquility: 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar mission

"On July 16, 1969 the crew of Apollo 11 blasted off from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on the historic quest to put the first men on the moon.

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of this achievement, Sun photographer Karl Merton Ferron acquired archive footage from NASA and the John F. Kennedy Library, and interspersed time-lapse images of the moon traveling across the Baltimore skyline during the past eight months. The resulting video is an entrancing convergence of history and art that pays tribute to the Apollo 11 mission."
