(CNN) – If you weren’t alive 45 years ago to experience the Apollo 11 moon landing in real time, you can relive the mission moment-by-moment on Twitter.

Since Wednesday, NASA has been live tweeting the Apollo 11 launch, moon landing and recovery. Sunday marks the anniversary of astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin becoming the first men to set first foot on the moon, so there’s still plenty of time relive the historic moment.

Armstrong set foot on the moon at 10:56 p.m. Eastern on July 20, 1969.

NASA’s media team at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, FL, is handling the “live” tweet event using account @ReliveApollo11 and #Apollo11.

They will be posting “live” updates as the mission progresses as well as photos throughout the mission’s recreation.
