Washington Monument transformed into Apollo 11 rocket

The Washington Monument just got even more iconic.

On Tuesday, the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch, the 555-foot national symbol lit up with an image of the moon-bound shuttle blasting into space.

The 363-foot projection of the Saturn V rocketwill appear for two hours every night during the anniversary of the missionthat put the first two humans -- both Americans -- on the moon.

On Friday and Saturday, the celebration of this historical milestone will culminate in a 17-minute light show taking viewers back to July 16, 1969 when Apollo 11 made its giant leap for mankind from Florida's Kennedy Space Center.
