Tranquility Lodge (on the Moon!)
On July 20, 1969, two American Astronauts landed on the moon of the planet Earth, in an area known as Mare Tranquillitatis, or "Sea of Tranquillity." One of those brave men was Brother Edwin Eugene (Buzz) Aldrin, Jr., a member of Clear Lake Lodge No. 1417, AF&AM, Seabrook, Texas. Brother Aldrin carried with him SPECIAL DEPUTATION of then Grand Master J. Guy Smith, constituting and appointing Brother Aldrin as Special Deputy of the Grand Master, granting unto him full power in the premises to represent the Grand Master as such and authorize him to claim Masonic Territorial Jurisdiction for The Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Texas, Ancient Free and Accepted Masons, on The Moon, and directed that he make due return of his acts. Brother Aldrin certified that the SPECIAL DEPUTATION was carried by him to the Moon on July 20, 1969.
Masonic Kilties of NJ
The Masonic Kilties of New Jersey are a Masonic degree team which specializes in conferring the Third, or Master Mason Degree, in full Scottish Highland dress. Within the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of New Jersey, we confer the Second Section only, as the host Lodge confers the First Section. Out-of-state, we are required to confer (or exemplify) the entire Degree, according to the standard ritual of the Grand Lodge of New Jersey.

Rosslyn Chapel Though you will not find out a lot about this at this particular site, this Chapel allegedly is the secret hidding place of many Scots Templars' treasures and documents. Supposedly, there should even be documents brought back from Jerusalem as part of the "findings" of the Templars during the Crusades.
