Description


Magnificent lunar map of the Apollo 11 landing area near the southern edge of Mare Tranquillitatis, 9.75 x 12.5, inscribed in the lower left in printed text, “This map is presented to the U. S. Army Topographic Command in appreciation for the outstanding support in providing lunar maps for Apollo 11,” signed underneath in black ink, “Neil Armstrong,” “Buzz Aldrin,” and “Michael Collins.” The map is labeled "Landing Site 2" at the very top [partially obscured by mat], and depicts the landing area, Surveyor V location, and craters "Moltke," "Maskelyne G," "Sabine B," and "Sabine E." Following the Apollo 11 mission, the latter two craters were renamed 'Aldrin' and 'Armstrong.' The unlabeled 'Sabine D' crater renamed 'Collins' is visible on this map between the other two. Matted and framed to an overall size of 18 x 21. In fine condition, with a couple light surface creases and a light spot of soiling to the presentation area. The United States Army Topographic Command produced specifically prepared maps for the first lunar landing based on information gathered by the Ranger and Surveyor spacecraft on the lunar surface and orbital photos taken on the Apollo 8 and Apollo 10 missions. In June 1969, the US Army delivered to NASA 116 charts and geologic maps, complete with NASA’s robotic images and the USGS’s geologic interpretations. An outstanding presentation to the department that made vital contributions to the Apollo 11 mission and a rare fully signed format depicting the site of mankind's first lunar landing. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
