Satellites to crash land on the Moon on Monday

More than 40 years ago, Neil Armstrong became the first man to step foot on the Moon.

Four decades later, there's going to be a very different kind of landing there.

We're talking about two spacecraft that NASA says will crash land on the Moon on Monday afternoon.

The satellites, which are named Ebb and Flow, are running low on fuel, and that's why they're falling toward the Moon.

The spacecraft have been orbiting for months, learning more about the Moon's surface and composition.

NASA says the probes will crash land Monday, around 2 p.m.

But you won't be able to see them from Earth
