As part of the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation’s Discovery Saturday series and in celebration of 45th anniversary of the first moon landing, please join New York Times best-selling author and former NBC News Space Correspondent Jay Barbree for his presentation and signing of his recently published book NEIL ARMSTRONG: A LIFE OF FLIGHT at 10 a.m., Saturday, August 16 at the National Naval Aviation Museum. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the Flight Deck Store located inside the National Naval Aviation Museum.

In NEIL ARMSTRONG: A LIFE OF FLIGHT, Jay Barbree, the Emmy Award-winning space correspondent, invites us to ride shotgun as he recounts Neil Armstrong’s impressive journey from young fighter pilot to outer space explorer. Told with spunk, adoration, humor, and remarkable insight, Barbree’s NEIL ARMSTRONG, is an exhilarating adventure about his close friend, who also just happened to be America’s most famous astronaut.

“Discovery Saturday” is FREE and open to the public. Admission to the National Naval Aviation Museum is also free.
