ANN ARBOR – Former astronaut Buzz Aldrin just made the University of Michigan Marching Band’s year.

He retweeted Monday their performance at Michigan Stadium during the Oct. 27 Michigan vs. Notre Dame game in which they formed a NASA formation at half time.

Michigan Band tweeted, “So glad we got the opportunity to collaborate with @NASA, @JimBridenstine, and @UMengineering!”

Aldrin replied with a fun fact that all of Apollo 15′s crew were Michigan alumni.
