Here are my photos and video from Yuri’s Night Bay Area 2008, a world space party at NASA Ames Research Center that was a celebration of Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, the first person to orbit the earth (see previous post).

The highlights of Yuri’s Night for me was meeting Buzz Aldrin, the Apollo 11 astronaut who was the 2nd person to set foot the moon.
