Moon rocks from the Apollo 11 mission of 1969 that had been in storage at the Minnesota National Guard have been delivered to the Minnesota Historical Society.
The rocks were a gift to the state from then President Richard Nixon.

Along with the rocks, a Minnesota flag carried aboard Apollo 11 was handed over during a ceremony Wednesday.
