Armstrong

CINCINNATI – Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, will be buried at sea.

A family spokesman said no other details on the timing or the location of the burial were available Thursday. Armstrong was a Navy fighter pilot before joining the space program.

A public memorial service will be held at the Washington National Cathedral on Sept. 13. The 10 a.m. service will be broadcast live on NASA Television and streamed on the websites of the cathedral and space agency.

The public will be allowed to attend the Washington service on a first-come basis. But reservations must be made through NASA.

Armstrong died Aug. 25.
