With the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11’s successful landing on the Moon, we know we’ll be reaching for our binoculars often this summer. It’s amazing the details of the Moon that you can see with a simple pair of binoculars. You can spend a minute, or an hour, exploring the lunar landscape. And maybe dream a bit about what it would be like to be there, and to look back at our Earth.

Of course, we’ve been looking through the Land Library’s books on the Moon, and the historic journeys mankind took more than fifty years ago. Here’s some of our favorite books:

Exploring the Moon Through Binoculars and Small Telescopes by Ernest Cherrington

21st Century Atlas of the Moon by Charles A. Wood

The Book of the Moon: A Guide to Our Closest Neighbor by Maggie Aderin-Pocock

Beyond the Blue Horizon: Myths and Legends of the Sun, Moon, Stars & Planets by E.C. Krupp

American Moonshot: John F. Kennedy and the Great Space Race by Douglas Brinkley

A Man on the Moon: The Voyages of the Apollo Astronauts by Andrew Chaiken

Chasing the Moon: The People, the Politics, and the Promise That Launched America into the Space Age by Robert Stone

Carrying the Fire: An Astronaut’s Journeys by Michael Collins

PLUS, one of our favorite space travel books for kids!
