Kids Commute: Moon week with Mary Stewart Adams!

Astronaut Neil Armstrong took the majority of the photos while he was on the moon with Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin. As a result, most pictures of an astronaut on the moon during Apollo 11 are of Aldrin. This is one of the rare photos of Armstrong.
Astronaut Neil Armstrong works on the surface of the moon.

This week on Kids Commute, we'll gaze at the night sky with Mary Stewart Adams, star lore historian and host of "The Storyteller's Night Sky!"

Mary will share fascinating facts and stories about the moon and hear some lunar music by composers like Claude Debussy and Florence Price.

Tune in Monday through Friday at 7:40 a.m. and 3:20 p.m. or listen any time at the link.

Many thanks to Mary for such a cool week!

Learn more about Mary and hear lots of her stories on her website.
